Monday - 3 Miles. After 2 weeks off from running my legs were heavy and it felt humid but I got it done. Even with proof that I do in face run on Candy (lane that is LOL)
Tuesday - I planned on running to Weight Watchers as per usual but I got out of work later than expected so I just drove straight there. I am glad I did because when I got there I got the news that my leader had passed away. I was shocked. She apparently got into a car accident and died from complications of that. I really liked her a lot.
Wednesday - 3 miles. National Running Day. I found out later in the day that members of Team Chris were getting together to run The Grid course. I rushed over after work and ran 3 miles of it with Erin who I had met at the I Did the Grid race. We realized right away that we were both doing the 3:1 run walk and we are close in pace. We chatted and enjoyed the day even if it was super humid - we had to slow down and we walked more because of it.
Thursday - I had 3 miles on the schedule and there was a local 5k so I did that. I met Colleen there and Erin found us at the start so the 3 of us hung out for the whole 5k. It was still pretty humid but we enjoyed ourselves.

Saturday - My first long run day. 6 Miles. I had long ago signed up for a local 4k and I had to do a virtual 10k so I figured I would do the race and then come home and finish with 6 more k. It was a small event and didn't even start until 10am. There were so few people doing the 4k run I just knew I would be last. (There was also a 2k walk and I guess most people were doing that)
|Got my Digital Running gear on and my new shades from Nicole|
|I am not sure why it keeps going sideways....but you can see the front of the pack and I was at the back of the pack LOL.|
|28:18 - There were 104 runners total so not top 50% but better than I expected.|
|Sorry it is sideways again.....I can't figure out how to fix this.......Note the wonderful elevation in my neighborhood.|
|Mikes Hike 4k|
|Leave me here to die......|
|Yup.....I had a hard run.|
Week 2 -
Monday - 3 miles. I had a virtual 5k to do so I just headed out to do my usual 5k loop in my neighborhood. I thought last week was humid....it was like running in soup!!!
|Horatio has resumed waiting for me to come home. He has been mad at me. LOL|
|Only 94% humidity?|
|The Sketchers GoRun3 that I am going to try out have arrived. |
As part of GLIRC they asked who would try them and keep up a log.
I jumped at the chance and they finally came!
|Love the colors and they are so extremely light it felt like I was holding almost nothing.|
|Insoles come separately in the box|
|And the shoe is finished inside so you don't even need them if you want a more minimal shoe.|
|Very wet after LOL|
