Got in 14 miles today. Woohoo!

November 12th, 2008

I hit the snooze button 3 times this morning. That is how much I didn’t want to get out of bed. After I got on my running clothes, I stood in the kitchen debating whether I should go or not. I looked at the radar – rain was coming. Hmm….”Well, if I don’t run today…I will have to make up those miles later this week….” It wasn’t worth it.

I was supposed to run 10 miles this morning. That is the most miles I will need to run mid-week until my marathons get here. Believe me, 10 miles is a lot during the week. Getting up really early isn’t all it is cracked up to be.

It did start to rain on mile 6. I was smart and put my cell phone & iPod in plastic bags before heading out. I am glad I did that. When I was on mile 7, a lady pulled over and asked me if I wanted a ride. I wasn’t too thrilled with someone driving along side of me. However, I thought it was kind of her. I smiled and said: “Thanks, but I am on a 10 mile run. Thank you for the offer!”

I was pretty proud of myself for pulling out the 10 miles. My iPod is still not tracking my miles/pace. I decided to take my son to martial arts and try to calibrate it. I ran a mile and tried to see if it was calibrated. It didn’t work. By the time I ran out and back, I had put in 4 miles. That made 14 FOR THE DAY! Wowwie! Good for me!!!

My hubby surprised my son and I last night. We are leaving next week to meet my husband in San Francisco (we live in TX). That week I have to run 50 miles. Oh my goodness! I thought where we lived was hilly. Nothing compared to San Francisco. I sure hope that these “almost 40 yr. old” knees/hips/stamina last for 50 miles in San Francisco. I think I deserve a medal when we get home if I make all 50 miles while on vacation, don’t you?

Miles scheduled this week: 49
