Let The Children Play

Yesterday

Activity: Run

Date: 08/10/09 06:33 PM
Distance: 2.90 miles
Time: 0:30:15
Speed: 5.8 mph
Pace: 10' 25 min/mile
Calories: 277

In addition to working out at RU, I did a 30 minute easy run much later on at the bay after another Runner's World Magazine wear test running shoe distribution. I ended up with these:



I'll keep you posted on how I do with these. So far they're OK!

Today

Activity: Run - Treadmill
Date: 08/11/09 12:00 PM
Distance: 3.11 miles
Time: 0:30:00
Speed: 6.2 mph
Pace: 9' 38 min/mile
Calories: 285

I did the interval workout B gave me. It was killer, and my calves still aren't recovered from last week's long run with the track club, so I had to do the last few sets of intervals a tad slower. The treadmill I ended up on was programmed to shut off at 30 minutes, and I needed to be on there for 34 minutes. Had I known this I could have planned better. Most of the treadmills aren't programmed like that. Oh well. Since this sort of threw off my rhythm, I just did a cool down for 5 minutes at a walking pace and called it a day.


Tuesday afternoon with a friend

"See, Alee?"
"Cars go really fast down the slide!"



"Wheeeee!"


"Can I come in?"


"Jump!"


"Bye-bye!"


Yesterday's song:
Life Is Good - Kenny Chesney - Katiefeldmom

Meg,
I'm lovin' the colors, too! The kids had a great time. I'm also resting the calves right now!

Cami,
It was an impromptu play date. They had a great time.

Glenn,
Thanks. I'm glad they were blue this time. I've been ending up with a lot of pink. Too bad about your Aerosmith concert.

Mel,
I had to put some high arch insoles in them and they seem to be better. :) So far they're doing OK!

Katie,
It's about time I had a fun color!

Nitmos,
Check out the program. Once you're in they notify you about each wear test.

Deene,
I really like these!

Waddler,
They were having so much fun.

Evelyne,
We need to stick together, you know?

Mel (Tall Mom),
Kids always make the best subjects!
I haven't worn NBs in YEARS. I'm glad to try something different.
