I felt much more comfortable today and the pace even felt easy which is a good sign. I stretched with a band afterwards which I plan to make a regular habit of. I am hoping that will minimize the occurrence of my knee pain flareups.

I struggled through the first part of this run which concerned me. However, about halfway through things started to shake out and I felt better. Probably some lingering fatigue from Christmas, my cold, and the time trial

We finally finished our exercise room in the basement and it is wonderful. It's like having my own private gym. Our Christmas present to each other was a new tv which now adorns the wall in front of the treadmill. All the better to watch Jack with :)

TIME TRIAL: 2008.12.26

Activity: Running - TIME TRIAL
Distance: 5 miles

Time Trial Distance: 5K
Time: 20:11


I went all out this go around and definitely felt like there was nothing in the tank when I was done. The good news is that this correlates to the right Daniel's VDOT for a 3:14 marathon. The aptitude is there - now I just have to get my fitness together.

This is the fourth consecutive day which is the longest streak I have had since becoming pregnant over a year ago. I'll probably take tomorrow off to rest my legs but this was good practice for marathon training which starts soon!

Finished out season 3 of 24. Now I need to go back and watch Season 1 and part of Season 2 that I haven't seen. Thankfully Cleveland has a long winter and I have many miles to put in before my May marathon.

This was my first day at my new "easy" pace as determined by Tuesday's time trial. Everything felt fine and no soreness afterwards. Daniel's calls for 8:55 pace but my treadmill only does 8:48 or 8:59 - I figured it was to opt for the harder pace...

Felt good (up 3 VDOTs for Daniel's) and may have more in the tank. I'll retest at the end of the month. Pretty happy ro be running this sort of time 5 months post-baby. Of course, I'm still far from my PR but that was 10 years and 2 babies ago...
