This morning's run was more about being out there than getting to a certain distance or even running a certain speed. Carrie and I ran 3, walked a bit, ran a little more, and then walked the last mile to get to 5 miles. It was nice for a change.
I'm a little nervous about next weekend's 5K race in Kansas City, MO. I haven't built my speed like I had hoped I would. My plan for now is to latch on to my dad and stick with him. I know he can do a sub-30, and that's my goal...because my husband, mom and kids will be about to run the one mile 30 minutes after the 5K starts. Nothing like a little pressure for motivation to run faster.
Because this morning's run wasn't too hard on me, I'm planning on running in the morning...maybe with my brother who will be doing his first half marathon in October as part of our church's Team World Vision team. I think I'll run Wednesday too since we'll be headed out of town early, early Thursday morning. I may see if Dad wants to do an easy run Friday morning.
I'm looking forward to the Lose a Half Marathon weigh-in tomorrow morning. I'm hoping to see some loss as I've been watching what I eat very carefully. Of course, I kind of have to. I found out Friday that out of 100% function on the HIDA scan I had done, my gallbladder is working at 2%. My doctor was shocked...so shocked that she initially swapped the numbers around and thought it was only 2% dysfunctional. That means I'll be having my gallbladder removed. My surgeon appointment isn't until July 11 though. I'm worried that this will really disrupt half marathon training, but it is what it is.
Last week (not counting today): 13.35 miles
YTD: 330 miles
