209.4 Miles in 2010

Shorter runs on the home treadmill yesterday and today. I'd like to do two more short runs Wed and Thurs, rest Friday, then have my run with Kells on Saturday. Maybe shorter-but-more-frequent will work better for me? I don't know, but I just want to keep on running!

204.51 Miles in 2010

2.95 miles at the Rec today. I did find my inhaler and use it this time, and it helped a LOT. I had a really crappy, emotionally-charged day, and I was really grateful to get that run.

201.56 Miles in 2010

Busted 200, yea! It's hard for me not to also notice that I am about 35 miles behind pace, though.

Anyway, 2.29 miles outside on the trail today. We had a nice cool front blow through with some rain and sub-80 degree temperatures. It's heavenly outside. I'm still struggling with the wheezing. My legs want to do more while my aerobic system is gasping for air. Hopefully this will get better if I just keep pounding on it. Something is better than nothing.

I had hoped I'd be able to run Kellsey's 5k loop with her in a couple of weeks when I am in Austin, but there will likely be walking involved. Sorry, Kells. =( Stupid upper respiratory infection!

My new running skirt was awesome for the outside run! I had my Guardian Angel in one pocket and my ipod in the other with my earbuds snaked through the hole for that purpose. Awesome! This is also the first time since I've had my Road ID that I've "needed" it (i.e., not on a treadmill).

199.27 Miles in 2010

Three little ones to report tonight. I am wheezing like crazy and not hitting a flow at all. But I figure some is better than none, so shorties it is.

194.49 Miles in 2010

Yea, an update! I did 2.24 miles today at the Rec. I am getting over 2 weeks of sickness, ending with a sinus infection and probably strep throat. Both boys were sick, too.

It was harder to bounce back than I anticipated. It was all I could do to make it through a 10-minute run at 5.5. I walked the rest. Hopefully, the climb back up won't be as long or difficult as getting there the first time.

Also! I had received a coupon on a new running skirt, including free shipping and returns... risk free! I bought a Gym Girl Ultra and ran in it for the first time today. LOVE. The inseam is longer than my current skirts, and they didn't move an inch. There are also great pockets and a hole for my earphone cord for when I'm not on the treadmill.

I'm a little behind on logging miles, so this is a catch-up post.
