How cool is that?!

Distance: 5.5 mi

Miles to go: 1926

Well I wasn’t going to run this morning with the group… but I did.  I was up at 4:30 for some reason so when my alarm went off at 4:45 I was pretty much ready.  After talking myself out of running this morning because I ran last night…  I did it anyway.  I actually didn’t feel too bad!  I came up on some friends who are doing a mini taper for an event this weekend and, since I hadn’t seen them in a while, I slowed up to chat.  It was good to see them again.  I love the positive energy I get from the group.  By the end of the run I was fired up and ready to go.

Of course there were lots of the “what race are you training for” questions.  It was kind of funny to see the responses when I said “I’m not”.  It was almost like it didn’t make sense to anyone that someone would be running “without purpose”.  Now, I’m not, of course.  I have my goals.  But with no RACE to hang them on, it was hard to get the concept across!

No matter, I will run lots of races starting again soon.  For now it’s enough that I’m just running.  I’m pretty confident that I can get back to my regularly scheduled programming at this point.  Starting with a long run this weekend of around 7 miles.  That will put me at about 30 miles this week.  How cool is that?!

Lessee… 42 weeks left in 2008…  To meet my goal… I need to average about 46 miles per week or about 7.5 miles per day on a six day week.  It might be a push… but I still think I can get it!!
