Run some more….Comes from one of the Marine Corps Cadences I was using to run to over the past couple of weeks. After my Race in late September, I quit using the ipod, but occasionally I still hear the cadences in my head.
I survived my 11 mile long run. I did it on Monday. It took forever. Part of my problem was that I got a little bit “Lost” the trail I run on goes through a town and sort of “disappears”. I had to stop and wait at a bunch of cross walks and such for traffic. Not so nice, but still it got done. I have a bit of a better idea now about how to do a longer run on the trail, and I think I will also take the dog out to that area and try to figure out where the trail actually IS, and where it veers away from town.
The other part of my problem is that I am just slower than I used to be. Fatter. and Slower. but I guess I care less. I also have this fantasy in my head that over the next 2-3 months my speed will increase. Either way I seem to be looking in the eyes of a 5 hour marathon, which sort of grosses me out. I did unfortunately get a new black toenail. This is so odd as I never ever had issues with them before. I think some of it is my attempt to trim my nails closer and closer. I should be upset, but the two black ones in question were ones that had already grown in funny, so if they never come back I won’t lose any sleep over it.
Today I thought I would do 6 miles, but found I was still feeling tired from the 11. So I did one of the 3’s that was also planned. I wanted to do the 6 so I could relax for the rest of the week, but in retrospect, the 3 was more appropriate. I will do the 6 on Friday. Friday is also a cool front, soooo, this will be more fun. Today was hot and muggy.
I finally picked up a bag of Iams regular food for dogs. Teulu had been eating the weight control. He ate all of the regular food, so, I guess either there is something in that particular bag of food that is off, or he got irritated by his high fiber diet? We’ll see what happens. I was just pleased to see him eating again. And since he has lost some weight he can easily eat the fattier diet for a short while.
And suddenly…October is almost over….
Time for shopping. I did manage to get my Sister taken care of. My nephews are difficult. I keep wanting this or that and my mother gets me alarmed that they may be “too old” for this or that, but each year they are never too old for anything, I think she just worries. My Dad also is taken care of just need to order it.
Why is it that I tend to put things off so much!!!!
