Half Marathon Training – day 10 – 87 days to go

Partly Cloudy 11AM temp 53 degrees – Health: good

What a difference from two days ago and two days from now. Two days ago it was 19 degrees, today it is 53 and Saturday the high will be 28. I decided to make a switch. I was suppose to do a 4 mile endurance walk Saturday and I’m swapping my 35 minute walk with it so I could enjoy the nice weather. Walked over the hill to Beach took a right to it’s end, left to Young then right on Edwards back to Beach, took a right to Mechanic’s and a left back to Hill. Nice walk and averaged 13.35/mile not trying to push it, just enjoy the day.

Tomorrow I have some cross training to do.

Half Marathon Training – day 7 – 90 days to go

Cloudy 8AM temp 8 degrees – Health: Nose opened up at 2 AM sigh

Today was very cold out. After Saturday’s snow and yesterday (I snowblower then drove to Greg’s to get his van, drove to Boston to pick up Ellen and the kids from a hotel then drove to Somerville to get Greg after his service and back home. then Greg and Ellen left the kids so they could go home and shovel out thier cars and driveway and finally they came and got the kids) I woke this morning with a runny nose again! But I’M NOT SICK (that’s my new motto). I did go out but only to buy the ingredients for chicken soup and made some mexican chicken soup and did my 35 minute walk here in the house. Round and round and round I went. Spet the time on the phone with my sister to pass the time. It is suppose to warm up tomorrow and hit the low 50’s Wednesday and Thursday. Melt snow melt!
