Two Posts in One! 5 miles - 7 1/2 miles

So I had this big long post ready to go last week and when I hit the button to save it...I got a big error message/time out and lost the whole thing.
It went something like this:
I ran 5 miles on Sunday 5/28/06, I am not disclosing the time. I swear I am faster, I don't know what's happening to me!

I bought a new car. (I actually bought it 3 weeks ago, I just kept
forgetting to tell you)

I am off to San Diego next, no, no silly, not for the
marathon...just to party like a rock star and get my sun on. I will be
there 2 days after the marathon, so I won't even be able to cheer everyone on.

I also want to give a big shout out to A.Maria, Runner Susan and everyone else running on Sunday. Rock n' Roll Baby!!!

Today's running 6/4/06.......I just finished running 7 and a half miles! This is my longest distance to date. It was a good run. There was a little drizzle the whole way, which was fine, it keep me cool. My dogs are barking right about now. I have a tender spot on the bottom of my left foot. I hope it doesn't amount to a blister. So yeah...I ran 7 and a half miles. I feel good about that. Actually, I was suppose to run it Sat. morning with my training group....but I had a little too much to drink Friday night after work and could not lift my head off the pillow when my alarm went off at 6:45 yesterday morning. I was actually very proud of myself for not blowing it off all together. I didn't have much faith in myself to run that long of a distance by myself...but I did. Yeah me.

I am off to San Diego on Tuesday. I can't wait! I sooo need a vacation. I have already planned my running schedule while I am there. I have promised myself I would not blow off the training schedule just because I am away. I am actually looking forward to running in new surroundings, in the sunshine and near a NICE beach......not the crappy east coast ones that I run at.
I will miss my long run with the training program again next week, because I will be away. I'm OK with that because I am focused now and am able to do the long runs on my own, considering that we are still on the "short" end of the long runs.

Happy Running to All.

I am liking your new commitment. Have fun in the sun. To toughen your feet up and minimize blisters try a lot of barefoot walking on the beach. Always works for me.

So jealous that you're up to 7 1/2 miles already! I'm joining the training team tomorrow to run for the first time in almost 3 weeks. I'll be trying for 4 miles.

Enjoy San Diego!
