Saturday I went on a “short and quick” 10 mile run! There’s nothing like marathon training to skew your perspective on what is a short run. I finished in 1:41:20. It was a fun run too. The weather was perfect. Sunny and in the 60s. There was a bike tour on the Montour trail so there was a lot more people to keep me entertained during my run. I also used Betsy’s trick of converting youtube videos to mp3s. So I had a bunch of new music to pass the time.
I did a speed workout on the treadmill on Thursday. I meant to go to the high school track by our house Wednesday after work but I had a couple of things working against me. First there was a soccer game at the track (it runs around the soccer/football field). Second there was a really bad storm (lots of damage, thankfully nothing near us). Third I worked late (lab has been crazy lately, lots of late nights the past couple of weeks). I ended up running 4.94 miles in 52 minutes (10 min warm up, [2 min fast, 2 min slow X8], 10 min cool down). That is the longest I have ever ran on the treadmill (dreadmill, anyone?). Last winter I had a brief relationship with the treadmill where I would speed walk on insane inclines for 40-45 minutes, but I’ve never had any desire to run that long on the treadmill. Everything is fine until 30 minutes into the run when I remembered that I hadn’t packed a bra. I ended up being late for work because I had to run home. I thought it was the respectable thing to do though;)
Still no luck finding the camera. My husband and I fear that maybe it fell in the trash. Right now that makes the most sense. My brother is enlisting in the Army, so I think I will ask to borrow his point and shoot until I have saved up enough money to buy a decent camera. This is how I feel because I can’t find my camera:
