Day 355: The Sun is out

The sun is coming out and summer is arriving making the evening runs a bit brighter. Trying to mix up the runs a bit and took a few extra twists and turns, I recon I must have covered every bit of pavement within a 3 mile radius of my house. 10 more runs to go!

Day 354: Lunch meetings

Don’t you just hate meetings over lunch, especially when you haven’t read the invite properly and not noticed that lunch would be provided and quickly scoff a plain old baked potato and give yourself indigestion and then turn up for the meeting and there is lovey buffet food.

Run this evening was alright – general niggles etc. seem to be holding up alright.

Day 306: I was very brave

Went barefoot this evening for a mile, IN THE DARK with dangers of dog shit etc lurking In the shadows. Apparently if you can run barefoot in the dark you are more likely to find a natural foot placement more quickly. That may be a load of crap but I thought I would give it a go. Only 59 days left so I really need to get back on it if I am going to run 3 miles barefoot before the challenge is over.

Day 303: Yummy in my tummy

Kate went out for the day with her friends so I put on a pork joint in the slow cooker and took the kids out for a woodland walk. The boys had a good time as we built a den but my daughter got a bit freaked out by it all, the ‘eery’ silence, the wind whistling and the fact there was no one really about just made her really scared. Plus when we did see someone they were inevitably walking a dog, and guess what, she’s terrified of dogs too.

On the way back we stopped for A couple of tubs of Gallones for pudding. When we did get back the house was full of wonderful porky aromas which meant only thing. Dinner was a triumph!

Run was a bit easier today, the specialist stretching and easy runs are obviously paying dividends. After a gloriously sunny day it started pissing down just a I thought I ought to go for my run now.

Day 8 Longest Stretch running since my 5 year old was born!

Went out late again, really peaceful and pretty this running at night thing.

Physically I feel better running at night than in the morning, probably bc I am more warmed up from the day – so to speak.  The only down-side is that running at night keeps me awake much later than I should be.

I have 2 young girls that need to get up early and I need to be into work by the horribly early hour of 8am! : (

Dogs seemed to lag a bit, they needed a lot of reminders to keep up with me-they are Jack Russells! They must be getting lazy from all of my down time : )

here are a couple of pixs from around my route.  First one-kind of creepy-freaks me out EVERY TIME I run over it. Second one Trees!  One of the best things about my neighborhood route are the trees that live along it

: )

Another night run for me-actually the latest I have been on so far, but it was a great run! Perfect conditions, quiet neighborhoods (11:15 pm PDT) – excpet for one thing, I forgot to START my time, didn’t realize till about a mile in, hope i get a Pass from the team here, will put up what I have charted. Learning as I go, like I never have used a garmin before! Anyhow, missed my plan for an early AM during this morning so that  I could run under the Lunar Eclispe. I heard from James that not all of my images (maps) are showing up, if anyone else see this – plesae drop me a line, will help to trouble shoot what browser you are using…as well.

Day 6 was again a night run…with my husband away on a business trip it’s more difficult to get everything done and post on time…

This evening’s run was the first time I had done Core Power Yoga and Running in a few years, doing a double dose of my favorite sports was great, but I had my fill!

Day 3- October 3rd

I have to admit the most difficult thing about the challenge so far (besides finding time to run, and then actually RUN) has been getting my new Suunto GPS watch thing-ie working, and getting the data saved, and the uploaded as a snapshot to my posts, will make sure I do a much better job of this in the future!

Friday 10/3/14: Was a late run, round my neighborhood with Dotty Marie and Zeus!
