I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

8:22 AP.  LOVE the cooler temps.  I went out in the afternoon and it was only 74 degrees with a cool wind! Ran about half a mile at 6:40 pace and enjoyed how effortless it felt in the cooler temps then forced myself to slow down and just treat this like the recovery run it is supposed to be. 26 days to SGM!  I am chomping at the bit.  So excited!

7:44 AP.  62 crispy wonderful degrees!  Ran from the downtown Y along the river.  10 easy then 2 tempo 6:32, 6:30, then .44 I slowed down for a cooldown to dodge traffic getting back to the Y and ended up at 6:40 pace.  This cool weather rocks my world!

1 on my own 8:06 then met up with Adam for 7 more 7:52 pace along the river.  weather is still great!  I think I am going to race a 5k this Saturday with a loooong cooldown to get 18.

6:50 AP.  Treadmill at the Y.  I didn't have a lot of energy today since I am between night shifts.  .5 warm up 8:27 pace.  2.5 miles up 4% 7:30 pace, 5 down -2% 6:22, 6:22, 6:18, 6:15, 6:11.  I had to stop in mile 5 and make a run for the pit with a sudden emergency.  It's been a long time since it came up by surprise like that.  I felt a lot better afterwards, though.

Well, I wanted a 5K PR so I incorporated the 2-loop 5k nearby into my long run.  Warmed up 3 miles 9:00 pace then did some strides.  The race started and I went out suicidally trying to stay with Mary Green, who is an incredible master's runner that rarely races locally but when she does she creams everybody.  First mile 5:57 which is ridiculous, then died to to a 6:12, 6:17--which put me through 3 miles in 18:27, and had the course been 3.1 on the dot and had I mustered up anything resembling a kick perhaps I would have gotten a sub-19, but such was not the case.  The course measured long, but there was a lot of curving and dodging the walkers on the second loop so that it probably what happened.  Oh, and since it took me 55 seconds to polish off the last .16, showcasing my severe lack of kick, that was a problem.  I could kick myself for not kicking.  I need to learn to pace these things better!  I am still glad that I got a giant PR out of it so I can't complain.  Cooled down 12 miles at 7:49 pace.
