Oh man, I can't believe I've let this much time pass since my last post! Two weeks is a very long time :)
Well there is just bunches of stuff going on right now keeping me busy, busy, busy. BUT, I'm keeping up with the running, and on Sunday, I went outside for the first time for a run since RR100 :) The weather was pretty cruddy, but it was warm and since I got to slip on shorts instead of tights, it was a glorious escape!
Geof and I cranked out 3 miles together, and then he dropped me back at home before he headed out for the rest of his 15 miler. Three miles was enough for me! Running outside and running on a treadmill are two very different animals. It's a little tougher to hold my form outside now since I got so used to it on the ol' 'mill! It was very exciting to break into double digits last week though. Talk about humbling :)
I'm training for something new now...running without glasses! I finally broke down and got contacts on Sunday after our run and it's like getting used to having a third eye or second head. It's weird. I never thought I'd miss my annoying, semi-crooked glasses. There's a big learning curve with these suckers, but I think once I'm used to them and then take them out for some trail runs/night runs I'm going to be a very happy girl. As I sat in class last night, I marveled at my ability to see the Powerpoint slides up front from my seat waaaaaay in the back of the room. It's the little things in life :)
My back-o-the-knee pain is back a little today after a very fast 4.5 miler this morning with Geof. Dangit. So, lots more icing.
At least the sun is rising before 6:00 a.m. now, I love that :)
