Days 8 and 9

Yesterday was day 8 of the streak and consisted of 2.5 miles and taking my friend out for her first run ever!  She asked me to help her to do C25K.  She has never run before and made it a mile with quite a bit of walking but that is better than nothing!  I did an extra mile after that :)

Today I decided that I would try the Jeff Galloway Time Improvement Plan for Tower of Terror 10 miler.  Although I'm a week behind, last weeks long was only 4 miles and I did that :)  Today's schedule called for 45 minutes.  I did a 2:1 ratio and completed 3.3 miles in 45 minutes in the rain.  Not too bad I guess.

Tomorrow is a technical race day but I will be do day 2 of C25K with V-ron :)

Spandex not optional

Today was perfect!!  Spent the day at the beach with my little family...playing in the sand and splashing in the waves.  I was completely exhausted when we got home.  Originally I was planning on running 5-8 miles but I could have gone to bed for the night at 5 o'clock!  I decided I had to keep my streak mile so I threw on my shoes and did a quick mile.  I didn't bother putting on spandex under my shorts...now I remember why I always wear spandex..if only my inner thighs would shrink :)  I got my mile in though, 12:00 on the nose.
I packed my school bag for the first time in 3 weeks...can't believe classes are starting up again tomorrow!

I forgot!

I forgot the best part of my run today...while doing 2:1 intervals...I looked down during one of the run portions and I knew I felt like I was flying...I was doing an 8:30 pace...and it didn't feel too bad!  If I can keep that up I'll be flying for Tower of Terror 10 miler :)

Yay for no bounce!

I got a new sports bra!!!  A Nike High Impact Drifit cute blue one.  It is super comfortable and supportive...almost forgot I was wearing it.  Yes it is that comfortable!!!  I think I will be buying more tomorrow.  I didn't want to get more than one until I tried it out.
Streak update:  I did 1.5 miles today.  I was planning on more but by the time we got home from grocery shopping it was 7:30, by the time groceries were put away it was 8:00.  I decided to go run while Ty and Addie ate dinner.  After a mile I realized that I was extremely hungry as well...and so was Harley.  So after the 10th time that he stopped to eat some grass I decided we should go home and have dinner as well :)

And.....I bit the bullet and finally registered for 2 more races today.  Wine and Dine Half Marathon and Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge!!!  So excited to not have to stalk runDisney.com and monitor the fill percentage.  I'm in!  I have committed to another 39.3 mile conquest in 2 days.  I have officially lost my mind.  I put in the Goofy training schedule onto my calendar last night.  It is going to be hard but I'll be ready!

I streaked...twice...

Yesterday was a double streaker kind of day.  I set out in the morning to try and get some miles in so that I didn't have to stress about getting the miles in at running club.  Well....I had some problems...some sports bra problems...apparently it is time for new ones.  I think I am down to 2 bras that I can run in without bouncing all around.  Needless to say my run didn't happen...I walked Harley for a mile though to make sure that the streak continued.
Running club was last night as well so we all went, Ty, Addie, and myself.  It looked like the skies were going to unleash on us so I was hoping I could get my four miles in.  I double backed a few loops of the parking lot and would then catch up to Ty and Addie again.  Around mile three every one else was finishing and I was ready to give up and just not make my 50 miles for the month.  Not sure why I was so scared of finishing after everyone.  It was the words of a 4 year old that made me finish.  Addie looked up from the stroller and said "Never give up mommy".  How could I not finish after that.  Thanks to Ty and Addie not letting myself I give up...I did it...I finished way after every one else but they waited for me and so did the two workers of Fit2Run.  I made my 50 miles for May!  Now if only I could keep the running pattern I had for the last week...28 miles in 7 days...and I wouldn't have to worry about getting my miles in on the last day :)

I'll combine today's streak post also.  I was only going to take Harley on my mile run (rest day) but Davidson looked so sad so I leashed him up also and decided I would attempt to run with both dogs.  Big mistake!!  At least they got a nice mile walk out of it and my streak continues!
