Not exactly a stellar week for either of us, since Dad maintained, he's the winner this week!
Six weeks left!!
Grandma arrived last Thursday and I feel like I pretty much did nothing but eat the rest of the weekend! It's usually how it goes when our family gets together.
Due to the heat last week, I delayed my normal Thursday Evening run to Friday morning. It was a decent run. The Runkeeper app started working correctly, so I think I'll continue to use it for the meantime. Here are some of my results with the app...
We were up in Winamac with relatives for the weekend, so I had a new view for running Sunday morning as I tackled the "killer" C25K Week 5 Day 3. 5 Minute warm up, 20 minute run, 5 minute cool down.
Let's just say that running past the pig barn 4 times Sunday morning was NOT the highlight of the run! I also found out that my Mom's cousins that we stayed at is smack dab on top of a hill. Now some people seem to think that Indiana is FLAT. Let me tell you, these may not have been monster hills, but when you've been running either on a Treadmill or our relatively flat neighborhood, these SEEMED to be huge hills.
Overall, it was a nice change of scenery running down a country road with corn as the main view.
Counter is down to 38 days till Disney World, and 165 days till the 1/2 Marathon! Whew! I'm behind where I thought I'd be in training. I thought I'd be a couple of weeks into the B210K (Bridge to 10K) series by now. I do have room for this though, as I'm not "due" to begin the training cycle for the 1/2 Marathon until the end of September. So I should have plenty of time to finish out the C25K with my newly revised "outside" schedule and then lead right into the B210K.
I figure the things I'm learning now will be of most help when I'm down in Florida in September and then for the 1/2 in January. I know how my legs feel running on asphalt and cement now, instead of the nice cushioned treadmill.
