Woot! It's Saturday. That means I didn't have to get up early. It also means my morning is filled with Barbie, Littlest Petshop, Playmobil, American Girl, and hugs from little girls. I have two daughters, ages 9 and 5. For the moment they are watching a Phineas and Ferb rerun on Netflix. Soon they will fill the house with commotion and happy little girl noises. Good times.
Last night's run was really good. I set off with the idea to throw in some fartleks. I'd felt that this past week I was in too much of a rut running wise. Boy did it feel good to drop the hammer. No, I'm not as fast as quite a few of you, but I am lots faster than I was a month ago. I know speed will come eventually. Just keep running. Anyway, I was really pleased with where my overall pace ended up. I'm afraid my 7 miles turned into more of a tempo run than an easy pace run with fartleks. It was fun though.
Beautiful almost full moon last night. It was my constant companion over my shoulder as I ran. It had what looked like a rainbow circling all the way around it. Pretty cool.
Plan for today is a rest day. Watch the kids this morning while my wife teaches swimming at the Y, then work this afternoon for a little bit. Sunday is church with the family and then my long run for the week at some point.
What's up with you all? Racing? Relaxing?
