That's about as far as it's getting right now. Life is good. God is very good. And, I have been enjoying time with my family.
I get fantastic blog ideas once a year and post them. But, when I am running, I will get 9,356 blog ideas and as soon as I walk in the door POOF! They evaporate.
This is not one of those 9,356 ideas, but here is an update : I am still running.
OK here are a few more:
Also, I am still in the "5k-a-day Streak Challenge" with 2 other ladies who are very determined to stick to it (Anytime now, you can DROP OUT!!) My current streak: 29 days (201.8 mi) 4 wk 1 d, avg 7 mi / day
Doing a New Year's day race would mean either I take the rest day and lose the streak, or race after 30+ days without a rest day. I am slightly curious to see how I would race without a rest day or real speed work. Not sure I am curious enough to pay a race fee, though. :)
Also...I got new shoes!
So in love with these girly- pink Brooks ghost 5's. I got used to my old shoes and forgot how much support new shoes give. I won't wait so long to replace mine next time.
A special email came from a friend today as well. I will quote from it, because it absolutely
MADE MY NIGHT.
"I wanted to tell you how excited I am to train with my heart rate monitor. I have been keeping track of my easy runs and on December 6, I did an easy 5.5 miles at a 10:49 pace and my avg. HR was 145. today I did an easy 4 at a 10:05 pace and my avg. HR was 141. it's so crazy to watch the pace go down!"
Consistent effort and smart training DO pay off. All smiles for you, friend!
Can't wait to see how you race :)
Late edit: I forgot to say I WON something from Michael! (She is a generous contest hostess). A pair of touch-screen phone gloves...perfect! Now all I need is the touch-screen phone :)
Have you ever streaked? Mine is not that long, really...I just miss my rest days :) This beats my previous streak record by 2 days, but with lower average daily mileage.
Will you ring in the New Year with a race?
