Running is Awesome!
Last night I went running with a group of runners who started this year in a Couch to 5k Program, now they're getting ready for their first 1/2 marathon on the 16th!
For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to run it with them...half way through the marathon I was questioning my sanity.
I mean WHO signs up for a 1/2 two weeks after running a marathon that they're trying to do an all time best at?
It turns out that I feel great and that my toes aren't even that sensitive anymore. I lead a Beginning Speed workout taken from "Run Less, Run Faster" 4 X 1200 meter repeats with 400 meters rest in between.
I had to run fast a couple of times to catch up with a runner I wanted to check on and my legs felt fantastic!
My first official run after the race will be tonight at what would normally be our Tempo run. I think regardless of what we do Bill will give Amy and I the stink eye for not staying home and following that ridiculous adage of resting a day for every mile we ran.
I'll be honest...sometimes I think it's kind of funny to watch his eyes cross:) I DON'T do things that are dumb just for a giggle though. If I felt tired http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifor sore, ohttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifr not great I would stay at home.
But I have to burn these little gems off somehow right?
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
If I can manage to not eat them all myself, I'll bring you some Amy.
'cause I'm fostering our relationship!
