My running has been even more inconsistent than usual lately. I have really been throwing myself into sports with the boys. Basketball on Tuesday, soccer on Thursday. And again on Saturday and Sunday. It has been tough to get decent miles after really going in the evenings. Running is involved with those sports, but those aren't the only muscles you use when playing. Anyhow, I've been sore a lot lately. On the positive side, I have lost some weight. I did sprints with Tommy's soccer team last night. From this experience, I can safely say that I am not a sprinter (and I am also not 12!). You throw all of that non-running exercise in with a week of car and appliance trouble, and you get garbage for weekly miles.
I have been following Colin McCourt's story since February, and I find his training inspirational.
If he pulls this off, he is my new running hero. It is crunch time! 3 months to go!
I'm going to try to get a run in tonight, after I install a new washer and dryer.
7 pm. 3.5 miles on Venetian waterway park, behind Venice High School, under the friday night lights. I ran by in time to hear "Heeeeeeere come the Indians!" Something different. I always enjoy hearing Iron Man performed by a high school marching band (just as Ozzy intended).
Aside from breathing lint for the hour before I went running, the washer and dryer installs were smooth.
