    Walked 20 minutes + 20 minutes yardwork, which is huge for me right now.

    Getting there.  Cool

      Just had a really nice race! Not fast (far from my PR) but it just felt great... do not know how else to explain, simply- I'm happy about it.

                Fast is better than long

                  I was 7.2 miles from crossing the 1000mi YTD mark when I awoke this morning. However, I am in taper mode. So today the voice of reason prevailed and I only ran 5.2 miles. My victory is that I applied intelligence over bravado today Wink

                    #1: Do what I can do. <DOING>

                    #2: 365 Hours training

                     

                      Used to be a non-runner, but not anymore.  I just logged my 5000th mile.  Didn't start till I was 50 and was able to get it done in 3 years and 8 months.  Life is good, I'm taking today off and having a Guiness.  Thanks RA for an awesome site !

                        My victory for the day was defeating the oppressive heat by waiting it out until 11pm: then doing my first shirt-less run in 15years.  These Planks are really paying off!

                        2014 Goals:  sub-3 Marathon ("Congrats! It's tough to race with poop in the mind" --Wing)

                        Current Status 03/17: Drinking beer and eating crap -- all the things I couldn't do before the marathon

                          Ran my first half today!  my goal was 2:30 and I came in at 2:24:42!  Very happy with that.  Hit the wall from mile 8 - 11, got a second wind and was able to finish the last 2.1 pretty strong.  Have to say one of the hardest things I have ever done, but that said, already looking for my next.  The felling at the end was amazing!  I started running 1 year ago and just completed my first half marathon!

                                My victory was finishing my long run. It was the warmest day I've run in this spring. I carried water thankfully and drank often. But that last mile was really tough. I went out thinking I should do 7 miles and I did 7.1 so I'm happy with that even if it wasn't always perfect. Smile
