Nor is it the worst. As days go, it was solely mediocre. I got up and walked the dogs a fun route that they like. Then I ran over to Ed and Abbie’s and played with Iz for a bit, right before making her pout because I didn’t want to let her chase me through the house again. The good thing about the run is that I averaged 12:40 for six miles. I set out to run 5, but I didn’t realize that it was six miles from here to the 505 to RB and home. Sweet. It went well.
I installed a new little device on my blog that will measure how many miles I run. It is my goal to run at least 1000 miles by next December 5. That is roughly 2.75 miles each day, which is about 20 miles per week. Right now I run about 12-15 miles per week, so it is a bit of a jump, but I think I can do it. Anyway, the little ticker will let you see my progress. I started today with 6. 🙂
I spent the rest of the day reading, finishing up Mama Day, and wishing I had vision insurance so I could get a good eye exam. I have worn my glasses for the past two days and it has helped a lot. I think they might help even more if I had a proper prescription.
I realized today that I am ready for the semester to be over, which is pretty good, considering that it will be over in about two weeks. I am ready for a break and for some new challenges. New classes. New students. New schedule. I am ready. Bring it.
I am thankful for long, cold runs. More importantly I am thankful for the most amazing god-daughter ever!
