…but the fact that I ran twice on vacation is huge!!  These aren’t big runs, but getting out there and making the effort is a big deal for me.  Woot!

Damn straight I’m running on vacation… August 7, 2011

We’re on vacation right now, and to get here involved a 6-hour drive.  Since I can’t possibly maintain the conversation for 6 hours, I was engrossed in a lot of self-reflection.  Inevitably, my thoughts turned to my inability to consistently train for anything.

I am currently registered for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon in January.  Since I proved to myself this summer that I can run a half marathon with minimal training (REALLY not a good idea) I need another goal to keep me running.  Enter the BFHG (Big Fat Hairy Goal):  “Sub 2-Hour Half Marathon”

So today I begin that journey (queue theme music)…  :-)

Just a short, slow run to try and get back into the groove.  :-)

Sherene and I decided to do a six-ish mile loop.  In our language, that means between 5 and 6 miles.  We mapped out what we thought was a 5.5 mile loop, and added a smidge to try and make it 6.  Looks like our smidge was more than we thought as our loop ended up being nearly 7 miles.

I was still feeling tired from Sunday’s 11 miles, but overall it was pretty good. This was the longest distance I have put on my new shoes, and there were no new blisters so I think they will be broken in by the Seattle R’n'R half marathon.

Right now I’m feeling pretty beat up, my feet feeling the worst.  One of the trails we run on is a little rocky, and the shoes I have seemed to be designed for asphalt.  My feet just feel bruised.  I’m contemplating some trail shoes next time around, hoping they have a thicker sole.

Slow and steady… June 13, 2010

Sherene and I set out for our last run before the Seattle Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon.  It was a GORGEOUS day.  I mean, absolutely perfect weather.  Just lovely.

The run wasn’t too bad.  Cardio-wise it was great, but my legs were really feeling it the last two miles, mostly from the pounding they were taking. 

Sherene and I both noticed that afterwards we weren’t completely dead.  We were stiff, yes, but still felt pretty good engergy-wise.  It feels pretty good to be in some sort of shape, I guess.  :-)
