Today was my 'off' day so I tried my hand at geocaching. For those who don't know about this - in a nutshell it's like taking a hike looking for hidden treasure. All you need is a GPS (or iphone) to get started. I downloaded the free started app to my iphone and was suprised to find over 300+ geocaches within 8 miles of my house - kind of surprising if I do say so myself. Anyway I thought it would be fun to go looking for my first one with Abby - about 2 miles later and 2 cashes we returned home. It's fun to do and I got to spend some time with my little girl. The next time I go out I'll capture some pictures and share them.
Last night I got in 2.2 miles with a .3 mile cool down. I ran it pretty close to a tempo pace I would have had about two months ago, so my conditioning is coming back - I struggled throughout but I'm happy I was able to cover the distance at a fairly good pace without walking.
I'm still failing in getting up at 5:30 am. Tomorrow I HAVE to get up so I can get a run in because tomorrow night is softball, and I won't have the chance to run at night.
Physically I feel pretty good - the scale is p*ssing me off, why did I stop running/working out for that month and a half? Any why did I eat like a pig? It's frustrating when I think about it.
Tomorrow I'll write a little about my upcoming races - I have two planned........
