- Ran with Mr. R, Ms. M, and younger dude at 5:30 a.m. Thank goodness I have a group to meet for a run because the legs certainly didn't feel like it today. We did 3.35 miles in 40:32 minutes. Not fast but it is done and I was glad.
- Present for Moi. Well, this is sorta kinda running-related. I bought an iPhone 4 and it came in. It is running related because I will be carrying this phone to run when I am alone and will probably be using this phone to snap running-related photos. Now, the question is, what case should I get to protect it? I am a klutz. I drop everything. Sometimes I even drop myself. No kidding.
- I Ask, You Answer. If I were to run a half marathon on 10/10/10 that leaves me exactly 3 weeks before the race and 2 weeks to taper. My ankles are still feeling a tad stiff after the 11-miler on Sunday. My knees aren't too bad but I know that if I run a 10-miler or more this weekend, I'm afraid something will happen. (Isn't it amazing how we get so attuned to our bodies?) Mentally, I know that I'll be OK if I were to go and run some 13 miles with some fresh legs. So the million dollar questions are: Do I scale back a little for the next two weeks? How many miles would you - the more experienced runners - recommend this rookie to do for the next two weeks?
Thanks for reading! Have a great Friday eve!
