About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Day 90

This morning, my intention was to run 8 miles. That didn't happen.

Instead, I did 3.

I got a late start, and with a gazillion things to get done this morning before we leave for the Keys this afternoon, I just felt like I didn't have the time to run longer. I feel bad because I have really been shorting myself on long runs, and haven't run anything longer than 7 miles in a long time. This wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't have a HM on Halloween.

I'm getting the kind of weekly mileage in that I normally would for a half, but almost all of my runs are short. So, I know I'm shorting myself on that training, but what can I say? Life has simply been too busy the past few weeks, and when I'm pressed for time, 30 minutes sure seems more economical that 80 minutes out of my day.

Anyway, I got the run done, so at least the streak continues on. Today marks day 90! Just 10 more days until I reach the 100 milestone.

Alrighty, that's all the time I have for today because I still have to finish some packing and clean the house before Jerry and Norah get home at lunch. And then we're off! It's funny because I think we are packing more stuff for 2 days of camping than we did when we went to MN for 3 weeks last spring! We may need a U-Haul to cart it all down to the Keys.

Enjoy your weekends! I'm gonna spend mine parked in a camping chair on the beach with a beer. Norah can entertain herself. Right?

Norah can entertain herself - that's what leaches are made for.

Jamoosh said...

Um, leashes - not leaches. Although that may solve a problem too...

I just want to say I stumbled upon your blog from my google reader (love google reader)and have loved it ever since. I like your "life is first" approach to running. I am currently training for a HM and got injured (stress fracture) so my bike is my best friend these days. But its fun to check in and see the steak continue. You are a motivation for me to stay on track even if its not running....do something I can tell you now I am a master rower and biker. Not sure my HM will go well but if I had to row to Denver CO I probably could. Let the steak continue.

That's why I don't think I could do a streak... I definitely need my rest days in order to run any kind of distance. Good for you keeping the streak going!

Have a great trip to the keys.

Hope you had fun! Don't worry too much about the half, you have plenty of time to get some longer runs in!
