Tomorrow is my dad's 70th birthday, so to celebrate the occasion, my siblings (there are 6 of us total) along with our respective families, are descending upon my father's town for a little get together. His hometown: Swanton, Vermont. This town is the last exit off the interstate before entering Canada!
I am traveling with my two daughters while my husband holds down the fort. This will be a fun, short trip (leaving Fri returning Sun), and I plan to take the iRiver along so who knows, you may hear more about this little adventure before long! :-)
Running this week has been great. I didn't get a long run in on Sunday since my younger daughter and I spent the entire day walking around Seaworld and I didn't want to push it with my heel. Monday I ran 4.14 miles in 45:54 min - about an 11:05 min/mi pace, fighting 15-20 mph headwinds on the way back. Tuesday I did a short run with my daughter around the block a few times for 1.4 miles. I also did weight training and about 15 min on the elliptical! Wed I ran 5.2 miles in 57:30 min, an 11:03 pace. It was pretty smoky due to the area fires. For that reason I skipped running this morning (Thurs)and opted to run a bit with my daughter later in the day during my younger daughter's soccer practice. The smoke seems to clear later in the day. I felt so good that when I got home I ran a fast 3.14 miler in 33:07, a 10:32 min/mi pace! My heel is aching a bit today for that fast run, but I am taking a couple days off so it should recover well.
I am going to try to get my long run in on Sunday but it will depend on when we get back from Vermont and how I am feeling.
So have a great weekend everyone! I will be back online on Sunday evening :-)
