My Apologies

Sorry dear readers, I've been MIA.

Between birthday festivities, other weekend obligations, the heat, and generally not feeling well, I barely even turned on a computer this weekend. So lack of blog posts resulted.

I think the ick was from heat/dehydration and mostly allergies. I didn't really have an issue with allergies until I was well into my 20s so I'm kind of baffled by them, and a huge baby. I think I am allergic to my cat :( but, you can bet your bottom dollar she's not going any where. Anyway, some generic brand allergy meds seem to be helping (along with clean sheets, mmmm). I did do some running this weekend, but it was crappy, and I don't want to talk about it.

So, I was back at it today, and thank goodness. A nice cool day for a run. Mid 60s, light breeze, mostly cloudy. Good running weather. I set out for an easy 3 miles. I like that "easy" pace for short runs is getting closer and closer to the pace i'd like to be able to run a half at. :)

Mile 1: 10:26
Mile 2: 10:25
Mile 3: 10:25

YO! I wasn't even on the treadmill!! I personally think there's a difference between running 3 miles @ 10:25 average pace with this sort of split as opposed to 3 miles @ 10:25 where your splits are 10:05, 10:25, 10:45. I don't know if it really means I'm a stronger or faster runner. But, I do think it means I'm getting better at being a runner. I'm becoming more in tune with my body, what a pace feels like, and keeping my pace consistent toward the end of the run when you're more likely to slow down and get a bit tired. And I'm totally cool with that kind of progress.

Honestly- I think running this morning with no music helped. I wonder what I thought about on my run? Sometimes, it's like dreaming. You just catch snippets of your thoughts later, without really remembering everything haha.
