Stats for 1/17:
Started on the track with a couple 400m sprints then ran home.
Family track day... YIPPEE!! Muscle Man and Little Stud #1 started running, while Little Stud #2 and I followed 50m behind. We wanted to see how far the boys could run without stopping. Big Brother went 200m before getting bored and the baby went 150m then got winded and distracted by the numbers on the track. We then let the boys play with their Monster trucks while we ran a couple sprints.
The plan was for me to get some make-up miles in since I was sick all week. So I would run home. I FORGOT MY IPOD...UGHO!!! I had no real pace plan, I just wanted to get 6 miles in. The route was hilly and I stayed positive, SCORE.
Tall Mom Running Hazards:
*Swallowed a bug
*Nearly got hit in the face by a low hanging branch
*Almost stepped in Dog poop
*Teenage boys who refused to move off the sidewalk (RUDE)
I don't like running in our area, there are too many stoplights. The stop and go is maddening (Although I LOVE LOVE the talking crosswalks "You can no cross, 12, 11, 10..."). Overall it was a great run. I focused on my form and cadence, had no choice without tunes. My new shoes felt heavy, but maybe I am still recovering from being sick. Tonight is Really Tall Brother's birthday party at Tall Grandparents House followed by VOLLEYBALL!!
