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.

8:17 AP.  First run of the year in long sleeves and gloves.  It was chilly this morning.  Im going to race an 8k on sunday I think.

7:50 AP. Lunchtime by the river with Adam. Windy season is here. The headwind was pretty ridiculous coming back North for the second half of the run, it took about 7:00 effort to run 8:00 miles but we didn't slow down because we had to get back to work.

6:54 AP. Treadmill at the Y. Wanted to get a good strength and turnover building workout. .75 mile warm-up 8:27 pace. 1.25 miles up 4% 7:30 pace. 1 mile down -2% 6:27. 2 miles up 4% 7:30 pace. 7 miles down 6:35, 6:35, 6:31, 6:27, 6:27, 6:22, 6:18. I did abs last night. I want some runner's abs. Of course I will have to move a little more weight of my midsection to see them.

Tired as always between night shifts. Ran 8 really, really slow on the dirt roads, not watch. I think I'll actually run slow the next 2 days since I'm racing on Sunday afternoon. 8k is an awkward distance. It's not really short enough to go out at a suicidal pace but it's not long enough to need to conserve either. I usually don't do well in any race within a month after a marathon, for that matter, so no big aspirations.

Another watchless easy run.  I am trying to save my legs for Sunday.

8:21 AP.  Great run with the GoRun group this morning.  Didn't run the last .05 to make 8 because Adam and Kevin would have made fun of me.  Legs feel good for the race tomorrow.  If only I can get my mind in the right place.
