Met Tee and Becca early.  Felt a little sick to my stomach, but I have perked up since.  I trained a full week for the first time in ages!! That makes me excited.

Easy neighborhood run.  My hips are sore.  Getting back in shape is never easy.

Morning run listening to a podcast ranking Christmas movies. Happy for entertainment when I don’t have running buddies.

Dang. Snapped my running streak already.  Insomnia is not my friend.  Late rehearsal and a little girl who kept waking up didn’t make for a restful night.  Today I warmed up 2.5 miles and then ran 3 x 10 minutes with three minutes recovery. Set 1: 6:30 average.  Set 2: 6:20 average.  Set 3: 6:12 average.  Cooled down until I hit nine miles.

A little bit slippery early run with Tee, Becca, and Debra this morning.  Followed by a 3 hour dance rehearsal. Very tired now.

Decided to get a workout in while it’s still warm and clear.  15 minute warm up 10 x 2 minutes on 2 minutes off.  Mile cool down.  6:36 average.  Hardest run in awhile.  Merry Christmas!

Met Tee, Becca, and Debra for long run.  I have rehearsal tomorrow morning.

I was prepared for miserable cold, but it turned out really nice.  7:09 average.

 

Already hit my mileage goal for the week!  It’s nice getting back into shape.

The new year is off to a terrible start.  Got dressed to run.  Felt terrible.  Abandoned effort.  Turns out I have strep.
