|This has nothing to do with anything except that it's true. How did we manage it?!|
I really don't have much to talk about today. Yesterday was a rest day, so I had time after work to
|Best dog costume I've seen in a while.|
This week is my first week of half marathon training. I guess this means the 15k is technically a training race. My long runs for the next three weeks are: 8 miles, 9 miles, 10 miles. Ouch! Today is my first day ever of interval training. I'm going to be stuck doing it on the treadmill today because if I go home first to run in my neighborhood, I'll be playing with, and taking care of the dogs. I just don't have the heart to let them out of their crates for a half hour to go outside and to change, and then put them right back in.
Today's plan is:
10–20 minute warm-up
12 x 400m (90 second rest in between each; timed)
10 minute cool-down___________
total: 5–6 miles
My mileage is definitely coming up this week, which I'm glad for since Kari's bake auction is coming up this weekend and I'm looking forward to enjoying the delicious goods I get.
|I've heard so much about cowboy cookies, I hope I get some!|
(By the way, the auction is this upcoming Sunday, October 30 from 10am to 8pm. You know you want some baked deliciousness!)
In other news, I'm contemplating making more of the race bib hangers.
Runners, is this something you'd want?
Also, I'm going to order some Christmas patterns soon for headbands (and maybe collars) for the shop, but only if it seems like people would be interested in rocking them. Would you?
