Training Cont'd

It's been awhile since I've written about my training progress. Yesterday morning, Z and I ran 2 miles in about 20 minutes. It was easier for me this time, however, the last little hill kills me.

This morning, I was back up and running because I feel like I am falling behind in the training. I did 3 miles this morning, taking a different route than my previous 3-mile trek. I liked going into Five Points and beyond, but coming UP Pickens St. at the end just about did me in. This morning I stuck around downtown and the Main Street, Hampton, Pickens area...much better. Although right after mile 2, there was a pretty steep incline on Gregg Street. Cursing the name of Gregg (HA) I did manage to make it up without too much difficulty.

Tomorrow I will rest and then Friday is up to 4 miles! I never thought I would be the kind of person who would willingly run 3 or 4 or 5 miles. But it has been a lot of fun so far and I am really excited about the actual race!

You can do it. I know you can.

Just listen to your body.

If you get a phone call in the middle of the day, and it is just someone panting--it's not a heavy breather call...break out the GPS and come save me! :-)
