Random Thoughts from the Weekend

This weekend was the second leg of the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, the Rodes City Run 10K! I am not running the TC but I did want to go out and support my friends! So I got up early on Saturday and drove down to the Highlands with my signs to cheer early in the morning. What I learned was that it's NOT EASY to find people that you know when they are running by you. I saw thousands of faces, and a few people I knew but only one of the people I was actually looking for!!! Go figure!

I did have fun running a 2 miler down there through some of the neighborhoods I've never been to, so that was a plus!

Yesterday morning, before the sun came up, I started on the last day of the first week of my HM training program. Because I've been injured, I am trying to slowly come back into the game and get my mileage up in a safer way, so I've been using the Galloway method. For my long run yesterday, I used a 2:2 ratio and finished the 10 miles up in 2:14, including my stops for fuel and bathroom breaks. I was hoping to finish in under 2 hours but as long as I stay healthy, I'll get closer to that mark when the Mini gets here. I'm getting SO excited and it's really exciting to use a new training method. I just feel like I'm experimenting and I can't wait to see the results!

Today, I'm going to do a slow walk with the dog to loosen up the legs and get ready for my run tomorrow!! Happy Running everyone!
