I ran 6.18 miles with 6x100m strides on the treadmill in 54:15, an 8:47 pace. I was scheduled to run 7 miles, but I was pressed for time (as usual...). I dropped my eldest off at soccer and had exactly an hour to get to the gym, run, and get back to pick her up.
I ran 11 miles with 7 miles at half marathon pace (7:47) on the treadmill. I thought it would be dreadfully boring, but I broke the run up. The first two miles I ran at an easy 9:05 pace, the next seven at 7:47, and then the last two at 9:05 again. By focusing more on the pace rather than the distance, the workout was fun and interactive. I finished in 1:30:08, an 8:11 pace.
Regular Day Off. I cross trained by getting a 3.5 hour haircut. Seriously. I thought women spending hours at the hair salon was either an urban legend or a cover for something more sinister (ex., extreme shopping, a binge fest at Starbucks, getting a room at a motel to watch Golden Girls reruns and nap...........)
....................what?!? Oh sorry, I was daydreaming. Where was I? Yeah, so my appointment was at 5:30 and I didn't leave the salon until 9 at night. I was hungry, dazed, and confused, but I love my new 'do. Let's hope I can continue the love fest tomorrow when I have to do it myself. Usually, my hair routine consists of washing it and then putting it in a bun. On "special" occasions, I might actually blow dry it, but even in -10 degrees, I'll still leave the house with a wet head.
I ran 6 miles at 9am in 16 degrees. The cold, crisp air actually felt good. I didn't time the run, but it was around 55 minutes. I came home so Pete could go to work, then the baby and I went to the gym where I ran another 6 on the treadmill at about a 9 minute pace. Still love the hair, but it's obvious I cannot style it properly. I think I need to buy some product.
So far, I've been pretty good with my training schedule. This is the first week in a long time that I didn't skip or switch a run. My second twenty miler is Sunday. Wish me luck!
Apparently, I'm having a blast!
Maybe because I've been away from
home, alone, for
The day after.

How is your hair? Do you put a lot of time into it on a daily basis?
