This evening I ran/walked a couple of miles with my 9 year old. I want this to be a regular occurrence so that: a) We get to spend some quality time together and b) she learns to enjoy running. She did great. Just like anyone her age she chased birds, grabbed leaves, stopped to check out the chipmunks, etc. It was great watching someone just run for fun and have a good time doing it. No stopwatch, no miles to complete for a plan, just having fun.
Last night I ran 6.2 miles in my first real long run in awhile. My knees did great. Even my hips seem to have loosened up. This is also really the first time this year I've been running in 80+ degree weather. Correlation? Maybe. Maybe not.
Tomorrow is Sunday and that means it's long, slow miles day. Long is relative. I'm thinking something around 6-6.5 miles on the trails is what's going to happen. Weather is supposed to be sunny and 70's. Should be a glorious day to be in the woods.
In regards to the difficulty people are having with commenting on Blogger, I have a back up plan with WordPress. I'm not ready to implement it just yet, but if the commenting issue drags on I will.
