Well I made it out he door today for a run - not a very far run nor a very fast run, but I did make it out the front door and I'll take that as a win. The run itself wasn't very good - my conditioning has suffered and I wasn't used to running in the warmer weather (almost 80 degrees today). Needless to say I went out a little too fast and crashed over the final mile. Still I was able to put in a 30:07 time over a 5k so I'm pleased that I got out the door.
Abby is still not feeling well so she missed her second day of school this week - hopefully tomorrow she'll feel better. She looks much better today so I'm 99% sure she'll get back to class :) Both Beth and I have been struggling with headaches and low energy. I'm thinking we're spreading ourselves a little thin. Beth is getting really close to taking her test and as the study time picks up, the more tired she gets. Right now I think she's dead asleep with Cade in his bed - I'm tempted to let her sleep tonight instead of us getting our P90x workout in..... I'll play it by ear.
Tomorrow I'm going to get in a few more miles - I'm tempted on ditching the 10k plan and just go back to 'feel' - "Why?" You ask, well at this time the plan itself is putting a little too much pressure on me to get the runs in. I think I'm going to go back to running by feel - getting out the door and changing a 3 miler into a 5 miler. I'm ready for my 10k race coming up in 31 days so I'm not worried there but what I'm worried about is stressing out and not getting in a run because I don't want to go 5 miles instead of 4.
The other thing is I've been running too many fast miles with Alex - I've crushed too many PB's in the last few weeks and I think it's put a little strain on my body, so I'm going to step back a little on thse run with him. Shoot he's running over 60 miles per week right not so a couple of slower miles with his old man isn't going to hurt him. BTW he just ran a 5:10 mile the other day.
