MANAGING IT ALL

So........ I haven't posted in 2 weeks? Wow that flew right by!! My job is keeping me really busy and guess what? I got my first paycheque!! I still can't believe that the government is taking almost half of it but eh c'est la vie!

I had my longest run of the year yesterday. I wanted to do it outside but it was -StupidCold/-28°C in the morning so I waited... 2h later it was only down 2°C...... so I dragged my ass downstair to suffer on the dreadmill. What a shock to realize that it wasn't THAT bad afterall. And I actually wasn't wanting to die the whole time =)

8 miles/13K in 1:35 with overall pace of 11:47 min/mile (!!!!) which is SPEED LIGHTING FAST for me these days .

The treadmill came to a brutal stop... so I had to re-start it and I still had lots of energy left so I decided to try for negative splits.

9.45K @12:16 min/mile (when it stopped....)
3.55K @ 11:22min/mile

I feel like a survivor, coming to a stop so suddently is not recommended... especially when you have wonky ankles, foot, legs etc like me ;-)

Anyhow, I hope you're all doing well and I'll try to catch up with you guys this week!

Glad you're doing well and keeping busy (and getting paid)! Although, I was a little concerned.

Great job on the 8 miler!

Welcome back. Good to see your busy at work and that you're able to run without much pain. Welcome to the wonderful world of paying taxes. Don't spend too much of it now.

Hi Sonia - Yes I think we should start a perpetually injured runners club. Got any good idea for names? ;-)

Marlene said...

Hey! Good to hear from you.

Nice job on the speedy run!

Here's hoping it warms up soon. I have had ENOUGH with the layers.

It sounds like the treadmill is finally starting to fight back...after years of being hated on, it has decided to take its vengence, just one runner at a time!
