5.25K and 7.93K Runs

Last night I ran 5.25K in 41mins.  I didn't run on Thursday as I was feeling under the weather.  I actually came home early from work.  I was worried I was coming down with a cold, but I feel much better now. 
Today I ran 7.93K in 1hour and 1min!  I made it home just before the rain started!

5.76K Run

Tonight I ran 5.76K in 48mins.  I took a different route as I had to drop off a prescription.  The route was a little darker then I had thought it was going to be.  Next time I take that route at night I should probably wear my head lamp.

St Mary's 10K River Road Run

Today I ran the St. Mary's 10K River Road Run.  I ran it in 1:11:30.  I was dead last.  I had looked at the results from last year and had a feeling this was going to be the case.  It was a really flat course and I ran my heart out.  I am really happy with my splits.  It started out as a cold morning, but it ended up warming up a bit around the last 2K.  I must say that the food for the runners after the race was plentiful with a good selection.

5.35K Run

This afternoon I ran 5.35K in 41mins.  It was much cooler out today.  Tomorrow is the 10K River Road Run in St Mary's.  I am worried I am going to be last as last year the last runner came in at 1:09.  My best 10K time is 1:10...

6K Run

Tonight I ran 6K in 52mins.  It was cooler out then I thought it was going to be.  Today I bought a Groupon for $10 of Yo Yo's Frozen Yogurt for $5!  I am so excited!  Last night I joined Jamie's from From Couch to Ironwomen Virtual Book Club.  First book is Mile Markers by Kristin Armstrong.  I picked it up at the library on my way home from work tonight.

Cross Train and 50 Shades

Tonight I got my week off to a good start and went to a Newbody class after work tonight.  Over the weekend I also finished 50 Shades of Grey.

I downloaded the trilogy to my Kobo as I thought I should see what all the hype was about.  It is an easy read, but does have a few grammatical errors and a lot of overused phrases.  I will continue reading the trilogy, but I would not consider it one of those books you cannot put down.
Monday: Rest Day Cross Train!
Tuesday: 6K Run
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: 6K Run (possibly with the Marathon Group!)
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 5K Pack Run
Sunday: 10K River Road Run

5.27K Run

Tonight I ran 5.27K in 45mins.  Today was not a very good day at work so it felt good to get out for a run.  I have decided to rotate my old shoes back into my training so I won't put too my KMs on my newer shoes before the Wine and Dine 1/2 Marathon in November.  Last night we went to the Western Fair.
Photo: Western Fair is great this year!
Needless to say I was not counting any calories last night as I might have had a deep fried mars bar.  I think I forgot to include my schedule for this week on Sunday's post, so here it is!
Monday: Rest Day
Tuesday: 5K Run Western Fair!
Wednesday: Rest Day  5K Run
Thursday: 6K Run
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: 4K Pack Run
Sunday: 10K Run - Coworker's shower in Cambridge  (I may switch up Saturday and Sunday runs!)

Springbank 1/2 Marathon

Today I ran the Springbank 1/2 Marathon in 2:48:27.  I am disappointed in this time as I was really hoping for 2hours and 45mins.  I am not sure where I went wrong, I was just slower then I wanted to be.

5K Run

Tonight I ran 5K in 42mins with the running group.  It was unexpectedly warm.  It was also the last run with the 1/2 Marathon Group for this clinic.  I may continue going and running with the Marathon Group, we will see.  Also, check out Recipe Girl for a Blender Giveaway!

5.98K Run

Tonight I ran 5.98K in 50mins.  I waited until 8pm to go for my run as it was a very hot day today.  It was still 28 degrees out at 8pm.  It is suppose to thunderstorm tonight so hopefully that will cut the heat a bit.

13.81K Run

This morning I ran 13.81K in 1hour and 59mins with the running group.  It was a nice cool morning.  Hopefully it is nice and cool next Sunday for the Springbank 1/2 Marathon.  This afternoon we went shopping for a new running hat for myself as my old one is really really smelly.  I bought a Nike Daybreak Running Cap for Mountain Equipment Coop,

Tuesday: Rest Day (BBQ after work)
Wednesday: 4K Run
Thursday: 5K Run with Running Group

5.98K and 4.11K Runs

Last night I ran 5.98K in 51mins.  After my run we went to see The Campaign.

It was pretty funny.
This morning I joined the pack run and I ran 4.11K in 35mins.  The route ended up being a bit shorter then my 5K goal, but it was okay, as I have a blister on my right toe and last night woke up with a charlie horse in my left calf.  This afternoon I have been enjoying a marathon of Gilmore Girls on Much More Music.
