Last Wednesday's run was a good one. The Husband came home from work for an extended lunch break, and I got in 6 miles through the nice wooded paths and back. I even got to do a few speed intervals to try and improve my overall pacing...especially when I'm tired.
Thursday was Valentine's Day, and that run was courtesy of our lovely friends Tom and Kerri. After taking the kids out to see some baby animals, I dropped everyone else off and got myself on a quick 2-miler around the neighbourhood before taking Tom & Kerri out for the evening and watching the kids.
Saturday involved getting around to running the better part of 10 miles with the Husband. It was coming up on E's nap time and so, after sitting quietly in his jogger for the first half of our run, we let him nap his way through the second 5 miles. We just repeated and reversed a 5-mile loop through the northern end of town for this run. It worked pretty well, actually. And with a strategic break at the house to grab a water and energy gel, it was the easiest this distance has felt.
So while I may not have met the goal that I set this past week, I have increased my mileage to an acceptable range for my training. Let's see how this week goes...I'm already feeling pretty good!
