I love sponge cake.

    8x800s are done. The last one was tough but the slow recovery run a helps and now I feel good. Have a good night.

      Sloooow.

        Checking in, hope everyone is well. I didn't think people would notice I went AWOL. I've been pretty depressed and I hate to be a downer wherever I am. I'll get better about personals!

              Remember when D2 posted about a great run of his? I think I just experienced the same thing! D2, I know the feeling! It didn't feel like much during the run, but when I saw the splits, I was very happy and proud of myself. What a feeling!!  Yeah baby!! This was my Garmin info on my 8x800...

                  Gustav- For real?  My birthday is on the 4th as well!  Hope you had a good day!  We mostly celebrated mine on Sunday, but I did get a nice run with the dogs in the sunshine in my new running clothes.  And DH snuck flowers and chocolates on my desk while I was out.

                   

                  Jack, Damaris, Mitch, Vince- Thank you!  I know it sounds cheesy, but for the past couple of years every year has been better than the one before.  I know that can't last forever, but I'm so happy to have my health back and feel like I'm on the right track.

                   

                  Coralie- It's when you're feeling like that that you especially need to check in!  Don't worry about the personals.

                   

                  Got my 9 miles in with 5 x 1200.  They were seriously not too tough, either intentionally or because I calculated the pace wrong.  But it makes sense that 1200s at slower than 10K pace aren't that painful, right?  So I ran my last cooldown miles at more of a "moderate" than an "easy" pace, ending up with 7@ 9:03, just 5 seconds slower than my 10 mile goal pace.  So that's promising.  The 2 warmup miles ended up being separate because I hit "lap" twice by accident and had to reset my watch.

                          Kristin- they called a couple of days before my surgery to reschedule. I'm a chronic worrier and the waiting is torture. I'm sure things will drop into place. Trying to get my partner divorced from his crazy ex-wife, the surgery, injured kids, feels like things just snowball sometimes.
