Running Fast???

Not the best time for me to run, after a long day (week actually) at work but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.  It was sunny (I ran in shorts, yay!) but still a little cool so I had to go.  It was kind of windy, either that or I have finally increased my speed, ;) so not the best run but I'm glad I went.

One speed Joe

When ever I do on a shorter run I try to run it faster.  I keep thinking I am going faster and feel good about that. When I get home I check my pace and see that I am pretty much the same speed that I usually am.  I guess I am just one speed Joe... not even the threat of rain got me speedier, LOL!

Fit in a quick run

Between driving kids to appointments and painting my room, I fit in a short 4.5K run.  Glad I did, I think Max is too ;)

Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun

Another beautiful day here, finally.  I did a 7K run and it feels good to get out for longer.  I have a 10K race at the end of April and I want to be able to do it in less than an hour.

Finally some sun again

The weather here has been just awful, not to mention my knee has not been that great either.  Today I did  a short 5K run and it felt good to get out let alone have some sun too!  Perhaps this is the start of many, I hope so!

I tried...

Well there was a bit of a break in the rain and the sun poked out so I tried to get a run in today.  However, the knee wasn't cooperating and I had to cut it short.  I went to the specialist last week and he says that I have had this problem since a kid (did have knee problems then) and basically my cartlidge is slowly breaking down, there is nothing really that I can do about it and it may perhaps eventually be arthritic.  Sucks but some days are better than others with it and that is why I didn't push it today, hopefully can do a long run tomorrow.

Yay 10K

Finally out for a run and this was a good one.  I decided to take it a bit slower and go longer.  I did 10.3K and apart from a couple of sniffs, a pee and a drink - the dog not me ;) - it was good, I felt like I could just keep on going.  Hope this is how most of the runs are going to be from now on.  Didn't hurt that it was nice and sunny again.
