Both dogs needed excersie so I did a 3 mile loop with Sadie first and then Ralphie.  Nothing too exciting.  Average Pace 7:45.  

My shin has been sore lately.  The meat on medial side, but it felt great today.  Maybe it's over being a crybaby and stop hurting

11 mile long run before work.  Average pace worked out to be 7:43.  Felt very good overall expect the cementary I run at has thing stag living there.  Usually I don't see him but today he made an active effort not only follow me around (like right off my shoulder 20 feet away) but he also blocked my path at one point.  Not too keen on getting beat up by a dear I ducked out of the cemetary early.

Took both dogs to run to school to get the car.  They were kinda hyper and took forever to get them settled into normal running.  A dog jumped out and totally scared Ralphie too! Average pace was 7:55

Long Run!  Ran down to my old neighborhood to run with my Math Professor Friend.  3.5 mile down at 7:44.  The middle four miles were nice and slow at 8:45 (she admits she's a little out of shape) and then pushed it home at 7:35 for the last 3.5 miles

The weather was kinda icky so I retreated to the treadmill run.  Watched mindless TV and ran an easy 8:10 pace.

AM: Got lazy and was kinda nauseous so I skipped my run last night so I did it this morning before work.  Raining out so 4 on the treadmill before work.  Pace was like 8:00s.

PM: Rented drive and ran 6 more on the treadmill.  It's a crazy movie, way better than I expected and has an awesome soundtrack

 

I really need to be more consistent on my blog updating. I go back and forget what my runs were like and can't fill in the details.  Plus I hate leaving my regular readers (HA HA, what readers!) hanging

Ran 5 with Ralphie after dinner.  Average pace was 7:49 and felt good but my tummy was a little bouncy.  Should have waited a little longer after dinner.

Long Run with my friend. I ran down to meet her (3.5 miles at 7:49).  Then 3.5 miles with her at 8:30 and then 5 home at 7:36.  Felt good over all.  When I got home, Ashley asked me to move a small table and I went to grab it and it totally screwed by lower back.  Reaggrevated a 10 year old snowboarding injury.  I can barely function, I hope it heals up in a day or too
