It's my puppy!

Sometimes when I'm feeling a little stressed out, I google "Brittany Spaniel" and scroll through the images.

Art imitating life.

Long tread

The weather today was beautiful, but I opted to run at the gym instead.

It's my "long" run day (8 mi), and I don't know why I thought I could run for that long on a treadmill, but I thought "What the hey."

Well, I must have slipped into bizarro-running universe, because everything about my run today was the opposite of how I usually like to run:
a) I was on a treadmill
b) I was on a treadmill for more than 30 minutes
c) I was on a treadmill for more than 30 mintues in my running shoes (not my Vibrams)
d) I was on a treadmill for more than 30 minutes in my running shoes (not my Vibrams) while watching TV wasn't bad at all! Weird. Usually I get really bored on the t-mill, but today I was ok with it.

I know I'll be paying for it tomorrow, because my legs HATE my running shoes. Right now my hamstrings are scah-reeming.

In other is COMING. Getting casebooks in the mail is like Opposite Christmas.

Preeeeetty sure I broke my Garmin.

I accidentally left it on ALL NIGHT and the battery was completely drained. I plugged 'er in to charge and got nuffin. I did the "soft reset" and got her rolling again, but when it stopped working right before my run.

SO. Trying not to panic. Although, running 8 miles without it (just like the old days) felt really good. I finished in 1:15, which is a little slower than usual, but not too far off my goal pace.

Pfft, "goal pace." I mean "don't walk, survive, think of dessert."

Guess I'll be running for duration (40 mins., 1 hour, etc.) until I figure this out.

Oh, and school is about to start again. HIP HIP!

9 month recap!

I've been a little distracted these past 9 months.

BUT I've kept running! And improving, sort of...I ran the KDF Mini in 2:06:26 (according to my Garmin). Thing is, I could have broke 2:00 hours if I had kept on the gas for the last three miles.

Instead, I was like, "eh."

And then I ran the Bluegrass 10K in 57:05. My chip time was 58:something, but I'm sticking with my Garmin time because...well, it's better. Very pumpkin-eater of me.

My goal was 55:00 and I would have been angry except for the fact that I had a CRITICAL ERROR in the um, digestive department around Mile 5 and had to limp towards the finish line.

And by "finish line" I mean "Dunkin Dounuts Bathroom that was on the Course."

And that story deserves its own post.

Sooooo, I'm gearing up for the Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon in November. Oh, and more blog posts (for my husband, mom and mom-in-law who still read this blog).

I'm going to update this blog. AND REALLY SOON.

Promises. Swearies.

But for now, I'm going to watch a movie with Hubs.
