Bummer - I tried so hard to find a time to run yesterday in NM but just couldn't do it. So, we're finally back home and after unpacking, dinner, baths, and kids in bed ... (huff, huff)... I finally got my first run for the week in. Ahh - it feels good to be running again (in a twisted sort of way - hee,hee). Yet I'm so bummed I didn't run outside. It's absolutely beautiful, warm, sunny, Spring, happy weather!!!! It's good to be home - as much as I love visiting family. :o)

Wow, I slept forever last night! It was interrupted twice, but my sweet husband let me sleep in until 7:30!! Woohoo!!

Today was supposed to be a track workout, but after my first 400, I couldn't seem to get my heart rate back down to a reasonable rate, so I just ran around and around while Lynn did her track run. The last lap was barefoot on the grass - very fun. Thanks for the idea, Lybi!!! I wonder if I couldn't recover because my last run was only 12 hours before. (?) I've been reading a book about Running for Women and it actually says that I shouldn't even be doing track workouts at this beginning stage - I should wait till I've been running for a couple years. (oops) After I've been running a year, I can start adding fartleks or tempo runs. From the advice I've heard Sasha give others, I think he agrees with that. So, I don't feel bad when my "track workouts" aren't really impressive. I just do what I can do ... and keep running.

Rotten week - I only got in 3 runs, and I forgot to hydrate well after this morning's run so I had a headache most of the day. You'd think I'd learn!! ;o)

First time to do 7 continuous miles, and I was with Lynn and Michelle the whole time! Luckily for me (and unfortunately for them), Michelle was a little sick and Lynn was sore from doing weights yesterday; so the pace was one that I could handle. I only started lagging the last 1/4 mile, but I found my reserves and ended up right behind them.

Gotta get to bed - I think my husband has given up waiting for me. Our internet has been down for 2 days, so I've been checking e-mails and reading blogs.
