Blogger has not been kind because on the few occasions I had time to blog last week I could not. Then, my big post disappeared. Here goes again...
Last week I had some good runs. I tried out a new pair of socks that is highly recommended by the staff at Fleet Feet and ADP. I like them and it felt like there was nothing on my feet. I was annoyed once again by my water bottle which insists on leaking. I need a new one, but I don't know what to buy. any suggestions?
Tuesday I went out on a 6 mile run and ran completely by feel. My garmin was along, but I only looked at it to make sure it was on. I ended up running with an ave pace of 9:42/mi. How can I keep my pace there (when not even trying) on a warm day at home but not on a perfect race day? Oh well.
On Wednesday I went on a 3.2 mile run with my neighbor who recently completed the C25K in preparation for a race at the beginning of June. The last time we ran together was the first day of her training when she ran 90 seconds at a time. It was amazing to see how far she had come.
And my announcement which I made and then it disappeared. I'm running a fall marathon. So the blog will be hijacked by training that is leading to something I've never done. On Oct 9 I'll be going 26.2 miles.
