All was good and Saturday got out and did my long run (5 miles) and Tom ran with me until he turned around at 1.5 miles while I continued on my route. I'm so proud of his progress! He actually ran the whole way and felt pretty good. He was so excited that he wanted to get a new battery for the hand-me-down watch that I gave him over a year ago so he could track his times and figure out his pace. He'll be ready for Run Like Hell - no problem!
Yeah, so I'm lovin' my run charts...it shows consistency and I'm a visual person, so every time I see my chart it just makes me want to get out and keep up with my running!
Looking forward to the start of Fall - probably my most favorite time to run. I love running when the air is cool and crisp - it's very refreshing. As much as I like running during the summer months, the heat can mess with the morning temperatures - I enjoy starting my runs with the temps in the 50s. Those are the days that I feel my best!
Two events are on my agenda for the next couple of months and then I think I'll go into "maintenance" mode until the beginning of the year. THEN I'll see if a 1/2 marathon will be a possibility for 2013.
Run - Baby - Run!
