Half Marathon Training

Originally the running plan called for a "rest" week after the Boilermaker was over. However, that didn't really happen considering I ran 2.6 on Tuesday, 4 on Thursday and 10 this morning.

But that's okay. I will be in DC next weekend - so there will be no running at all. So next week will be my rest week. I felt great running 10 this morning. I met some running friends at the Niskayuna bike path at 6:30. It was nice and cool. The route was flat (except for one hill) and it was nice and shady. I felt great running 10 miles and I was happy to get back into double digits. I haven't run 10 miles since April.

In other news, Maddie is loving camp. There was a hula hoop contest last week and she won! Yup. She did. She hula hooped for THREE minutes.

The countdown is on for our trip to DC to visit my BFF. We leave early Saturday morning and come home on Monday. It's Maddie's first time on a plane and we are both super excited to visit Cortney and her family.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

It was a big surprise seeing you on the trail this weekend! I hadn't been there in almost a year and saw lots of people. Have a safe trip.
