183.78 Miles in 2010

2.28 miles today at the Rec... where the A/C was broken. I was dripping with sweat after the end of my 5-minute warm-up walk! I cut it short at 15 minutes of running at 5.3, then just walked to cool down until the 30-minute mark. The run felt great besides the sweat! Maybe I can get some more miles in tomorrow, since I don't think I will have too tired legs from this.

(Isn't it great that 15 minutes at 5.3 is a light day now?)

Also, I got a sweet comment from Kellsey saying how hard it is to keep going on a treadmill, etc. Girl, I don't even want to stand outside, so I don't see how you're running 10k's in it. Thank Goodness there are different methods available to go with our different weaknesses!

181.50 Miles in 2010

Last night, I decided for a long walk vs. a short run on my treadmill. I wanted to watch Wednesday's SYTYCD, so I pretty much walked for the hour and 10 minutes it took me to watch it for 3.71 miles. My hips feel more worked out than they have in a long time, so I guess it's good to mix things up.

3.43 miles at the Rec this afternoon. I had to push on this one, but I did! I ended up running at 5.3 for 25 minutes.

It's amazing how quickly I have fallen back on my mile-a-day pace. I was within 4 miles of reaching that pace at one time, and now I am over 16 miles off! Yikes. I need to get back to working out 3x per week.

I have decided to participate in the Austin Warrior Dash in November, and I am pretty sure LauraC is going to fly in to join me! I also invited Katie, but I haven't heard back yet.

174.36 Miles in 2010

3.18 miles at the Rec last night. Meh. I walked a lot.

I was so exhausted this week from our 4th of July party and all that entails that running was a pipe dream. I was getting exercise, though!
