5 Weeks to Go

Distance 5 miles
Time 53:55

Frigging gorgeous day for my first 5-miler in over a year. I was supposed to run with my brother again, but he's not feeling well, so I went it alone. Kelly Drive was insane with another crew competition, but I overheard someone say that there are only two weeks left in the season. Sweet!

5 miles was a really important turning point for me the last time I did the Broad Street Run. Something about reaching the halfway point makes you believe you'll actually be able to do the whole thing. I'm definitely feeling optimistic about finishing, though I'm not so sure about doing it in < 10 minute miles like I hoped. I guess we'll see.

Distance: 3 miles
Time: 31.37 minutes

Short and sweet. Even though it's my final day off of work this week, I still got up at 5:30 to head out to Kelly Drive with Todd. I like that guy.

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 41.38

I have a few days off work, so I didn't have to get up at 5:30 to run today. It wasn't my easiest run ever, and I couldn't say much for the scenery, but I beat my last 4-mile time by over a minute. I'll take it.

6 Weeks to Go

Distance: 2 miles
Time: 20 minutes

Went running with my brother H today. It was the first time I've had a running partner in over a year, and it was awesome. H is training for Broad Street, too, so I'll hopefully get to do a few more training runs with him. I'm a little worried about the jump to 4 miles on Wednesday, but Hal's training plan has never let me down before. Here's hoping.

Time: 19.02 minutes

Short, quick (by my standards, anyway) run. Felt great. Ready for spring.

7 Weeks to Go

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 42.40 minutes

First 4-miler in quite a while.  Not my fastest, but it was surprisingly fun, and  I felt pretty good. Lots of crew hoopla on Kelly Drive, so I went off-roading for a half-mile or so. Have to remember to keep my hips straight and stop leading with my left.

Super slow run, but I got the mileage in. That's what counts, right? Right?

8 Weeks to Go

Distance: 3 miles 
Time: Meh 

Lovely, muddy run on the Wissahickon, but seriously, what's a girl got to do to get a port-a-john around here?
