So Sunday was my long run with Robert... Ran 6 miles around the nice neighborhood down the street. I like running around the nice houses.

Monday went to speed, Kelly didn't. I am enjoying speed and running group more and more.. the girls are really nice and are motivating. I ran with one of the girls that has been going for a while and I was able to keep it up and did 2 sets.

Monday's Speed

Today was Speed running.
10 min warm up
Then the workout: PR 5k
I started out strong a little over confident. At one point I thought that if I could just prevent myself from losing my lunch then I could get through it.
I hate being the last one, and today FINALLY there were two people behind me! YEAH.
We had to do plyometrics(?) afterward and again really just focusing n not losing my lunch.
Kelly ran past me, but came back to finish with he's sweet. Even though I am very angry when I get done.

Sunday run

I felt hardcore on Sunday, changing clothes in the church bathroom... then running around Bogle Park and up Central. It was soooo hot, the church thermometer read 85! It was a great run as far as the scenery went, but it was so hot that I didn't enjoy it.
My shoes are still giving me blisters, but not all the time-so I am going to try new socks on Monday
