Last week I was HONORED to be listed as #1 on Jake's (AKA Broken Hearted Runner) list of Best Running Blogs. I am not sure if the list is in any sort of order, but seeing my blog listed was a HUGE High Five. Thank you Jake!! Check out the Full List of Blogs HERE.
I have been looking for a new Doctor so at the recommendation of a friend I met the new Doc yesterday to establish care. She was FANTASTIC!! A Funny thing happened at the Doctor's Office.. I have a SECRET- I have never been measured as 6'0 Tall....GASP....I rounded up because 5'11 and 3/4 is a mouth full.. At Gonzaga on the Basketball roster I think they listed me as 6'1 or taller....I was not fooling anyone being the runt in the Division I Post block. Well yesterday for the first time in my Tall Life I was measured by someone taller than me, a Male Nurse who was about 6'2... and I GREW!!!
Tall Mom will no longer rounding up I am now officially 6'0 and 1/4
And I have allergies...good times.. HEHEHEHE... I texted Muscle Man to share the news and he said "All that running must be good for the spine." Funny guy..
I did not have time mid-day to run since I got to work late... I vowed to run when I got home. Little Stud #2 requested Pizza for his birthday dinner. We ate and I sat and relaxed. Went to Target to pick up a few things, saw Tall Grandma, went home and I sat. Time ticked away...
I thought about my friend Amy who ran 8.1 miles on her lunch hour+, a new distance PR for her. If she could do that, I could get up and put in 5 miles. I hit the wrong button and the treadmill zoomed to 7:20 pace...OUCH..
My groin ached...OOPS!! "Mommy are you OK." "Nope Mommy pulled something".. UGH, so I walked to warm up. Then gradually increased the speed. I watched The Biggest Loser but could not hear a thing over my loud clomping. Muscle Man did a chest work out and the Little Studs played Cars, a little family bonding, sort of. I ran the first 2 miles slow and kicked it up to goal Marathon pace the last 3 miles. It was tough, I am still not used to running a set speed on a little moving pad.
- Goal Pace???? I really have no plan so far, what I do know is I will not be going for a Marathon PR at Boston. 3:45- 4 hour would be GREAT! Right now running FAST does not feel good on my knee, so I need to be careful.. the key goal is to get to the start line un-injured.
- Random ??- What do you eat for Breakfast? I need something new, preferably easy to eat in the car. IDEAS WELCOME.
