I've been negligent in keeping my 'running' log updated. . . visions of a well-intentioned New Year's resolution are surfacing. I'll try to be more diligent. . . hopefully

This morning I had a very difficult time getting out of bed and then my run sucked. Yesterday morning was horrendous but somehow L- & I were able to run 5 miles in the exact amount of time we did it two weeks ago, even with my two desperately needed walk breaks. I stepped on the scale after my ridiculously short run and just about fell over. I'm preparing myself to go dry on 05 July. . . Don't get me wrong, I love beer, but it's not helping my waistline, nor is it helping my training.

0' Dark hundred

I've decided that if I'm going to get to running and not be overheated this summer I need to get running at 0'Dark Hundred. Special thanks to K- for swinging by my house to pick me up at 0530 for an easy 5 miles.

and she's back. .

This morning was a sort of coming round of sorts. For the past year I've been saying that I need to get my butt in gear and start training seriously (again) and somehow I've always managed to come up with an excuse and go about my business. Being able to continue running marathons, and now ultras without so much as a hangup really hasn't helped convince me to train, either. But today, today I decided that I'm going to start doing this right (again) and put in the effort to get the results that I want. Hello, long boring Saturday morning runs (solo). Hello, 0500 training runs to beat the heat. Goodbye staying up late (as if I do this anyway). She's back in training mode. . . for today.
