Tuesday- Normal run, 3 mile route near the house. I'm beginning to enjoy how easy the 3 mile runs are... I will miss them. (30:56)
Thursday- Knowing I would have to do a treadmill run Friday, I was stuck searching for a route near our airport hotel. I did a couple of trips back and forth behind the hotel for the first 2 miles, then went the other direction for the last 2 miles. Between the boring route and the quiet of no iPod, it was not my favorite run ever but I got it in. I also realized how much I rely on and enjoy music while I run, thank goodness the Portland Marathon is MP3 friendly. I will DEFINITELY make sure the iPod is charged and ready for that day!! (42:32)
Friday- Treadmill run in a hot, smelly, hotel gym. It was like a sauna in there, nothing good on TV to help distract me, and I got stuck on the treadmill right in front of the mirror- UGH! It was so bad in there that the first officer I was flying with was running on the machine next to me and was going to do 3 miles, but stopped after only a mile... wimp. :) (30:32)
Sunday- Starting to add a mile each week for the "long run" on the weekend, so this was a 6 mile run and the furthest I've run since Cooper was born. In order to allow Rick to get a few things done while the older kids napped, I took Cooper with me. I chose to run along the Springwater Corridor, a long paved trail about a mile and a half from our house, because it's flat and fairly straight- easy for the jogging stroller. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but a little hot at 2pm. And Cooper did awesome! (61:12)
Sorry for the weeklong absence in blogging... I vow to do better this week.
