Okay it never happened - the second run that is. Thunderstorms continued into the late evening. They may also spoil my race on Wed. night! This threw off my schedule for the week. I am not really good at what is called being flexible! Today is a recovery day, resting my heel before the race and trying to run somewhat less.
Some of you commented on my high mileage for July. I questioned it a little myself because it was up so much from previous months. So I got out my running log from last year to see what the mileage was as I was also training for a marathon then. I was a bit astounded at last July (192) and August (221.1). If only I could do that again and stay healthy for running!
When I am icing my heel I am getting a lot of reading done. I took last week's books back to the library to pick up some more. Here are the books I got:
Red Hook Road - Ayelet Waldman - hot off the presses, first to check it out!
Wildwater Walking Club - Claire Cook
The Help - Kathryn Stockett - everyone in the world has read this but me
Henry's Sisters - Cathy Lamb
Storm Prey - Jonh Sanford
I started right in with Red Hook Road. Love starting a new book by a favorite author!
