I am icing my pesky heel as I write this. I ran 6 and 8 respectfully this weekend. Yesterday was pain free with very slight pain today. I am sure that if I amped up the mileage it would be a different story. I am rethinking my marathon training. I have always prided myself on my many days of running and the miles I am able to add up but I need to stop thinking that more miles are always good. My mileage for July was 197.5 miles. Some of that was due to marathon training, some because of vacation. Remember I love to run on vacation! Perhaps the high mileage is part of my problem. So how do I fit training for my relay and my marathon into a smart plan?
First I will run at least slightly less, yet still get at least one day with two workouts in. I did not race this weekend but will probably do a 5K mid week. I don't think I can resist the race I am planning on because it is so unusual. I may not get to race the train but this race is pretty darn cool also. More to come later...........
The temperature was perfect for running both yesterday and today. I ran with T both days and today we played around with the camera just a bit.
T and I fooling around with the self timer. This one is fine.
We aren't gleeful over our run. We are laughing because we are never ready when the shot goes off.
Like I said, we are never ready! Or did T just spot a bear?
Last night I met my friend that I visited in Conn. in a local restaurant for supper. She was here in Vermont kayaking on Lake Champlain with friends from Conn. It was great to see her on my turf and meet some of her other friends! My husband got to join us and he hasn't seen K in a long time so all in all we had a great time!
Dinners lately have been all about the garden. This picture really doesn't do our garden justice. It looks great - thanks to my husband who spends a lot of time in it. A supper straight from the garden - an excellent way to end the weekend!
We have lots of tomatoes! We gave away several to grateful neighbors just today.
We do not have so many of these. Woe is me because I love love love yellow squash!
