After a 2 week break I have re-committed myself to running.  I jumped on the treadmill today and did 4 miles.  Felt better than I had expected, but it still wasn't pretty.  Planning to hit 4 again tomorrow.

Planned on doing 4 but my baby starting having some major problems and I had to end my run just as I was getting going.  Oh well, what can you do?  :)

Went out to the corner at 7:00 and nobody ever came.  So, I came home and waited for it to be a little lighter.  Headed back out by myself a little after 8:00.  Pushed myself up the long hill twice and made good time - feel great! :)

Talked with my sister-in-law last night and mentioned possibly doing the Utah Valley 1/2 marathon in June.  She called this morning and is already signed up - I guess that means I'll be doing it to.  I better get myself in gear and run a little more consistently.

It had been a week since I last ran and I wasn't sure what to expect today.  I've had a louzy cold and been quite congested, so I told myself I could take it easy.  Felt really good until the last .5 mile.  Glad I got it done today.  I'm really going to TRY to make my running more consistent this month.

Met Laurie at the corner at 7:00.  It was FREEZING this morning.  We kept a good pace and I got home 10 minutes earlier than normal.  One of these days I'm going to have to force myself to do a longer run, but it just isn't calling my name yet.

Well, it's the first day of March and therefore my Utah Valley Half Marathon training schedule begins - not quite sure how I feel about it.

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill today:

#1 = 10:56

#2 = 10:00

#3 = 9:55

#4 = 10:52

Felt good the entire time, but did push myself a bit harder than normal.

mile #1 = 10:56

mile #2 = 10:00

mile #3 = 10:16

Was surprised at how good I felt today.  Had to jump off  few times to help the kiddos, but all in all it was good.

Really had to dig deep and find some motivation, or maybe it was just knowing how guilty I would feel later on today - isn't guilt a wonderful thing?

warm up mile #1 = 10:56

mile #2 = 10:09

mile #3 = 10:00

cool down mile #4 = 10:14 (not much of a cool down/easy mile, but my kids were NOT cooperating and I had to go take care of things, which meant running faster than I wanted to at that point)

Planning on 6 miles Saturday.

Met the ladies at 6:30 and ran the first 4.25 with them.  Tried to talk any of them into adding on with me, but no takers. :(   Added on to make it a total of 6 miles!  End of my first week of official training for the half in June and it feels great.

On vacation in beautiful St. George!!!  Met my sister-in-law, Kathy, and we started our run at Winchester Hills.  We ran 2 miles up to the turn off into Snow Canyon and then enjoyed some beautiful scenery and some pretty serious down hill.  We got through the canyon and then ran down Snow Canyon Parkway and up to the light at the north end of Bluff.  The final hill was a killer, but we did it.  It was so great to run together and am now even more excited for our race in 2 weeks.  I feel great at the moment, but I'm sure things will tighten up pretty good.

Not my favorite running conditions but it was okay.  There were more hills than I thought there would be since we were going "down" the canyon.  Felt like I pushed hard the entire race.  I was disappointed that I didn't get my goal time, but not much I can do about that now.  Was super tired afterwards - my legs ached all afternoon.  Today I'm just stiff.
