Today is day 8 of my 8 week half marathon training schedule. I ran an average 11:08 minute mile for a 2.4 mile run in my neighborhood. I have my work cut out, and I'm still gong much slower with a purpose, and that purpose is to NOT HURT MYSELF. I'm hoping to have my average mile (for the 2.4 mile run) in the 8 minute (8:30 would be good) range before the end of my 8 weeks.
All is very quiet on the western front. EVERYONE IS BACK IN SCHOOL!!!! The fall semester at the college started today and both of my kids have classes today. Yeeehaaa! Sometimes I just like having the house to myself, even if it's for an hour or so. I get so much more done.
Today I'm also getting back on track with eating. Yesterday we went to a birthday party for my BIL, and something in one of the foods had to be bad because we all came home sick... I was thinking of calling my SIL to tell her something that she served went bad, but perhaps this is one of those things I should just not bring up because she was so proud of the stuff she served... Oh well. Everyone here is feeling much better today.
Before I forget, I want to shout out to Barbie2Be, who just swam/ran/biked in a TRIATHLON this past weekend! Way to go Barbie2Be!!!!
