Come on Arlin lets run through the sprinklers...it was hot and seemed like fun.
with one foot in...it took a little coaxing.
and we're off!
omg! We're getting W-A-Y more wet than I thought we would!
Come on Arlin we're almost there!
the spin around...we had to make a quick return.
the trip (or sit down, not sure which)
Mama saving the Captain of the sinking ship...
Up and over matey...
Alive and well......and V-E-R-Y wet!
When my spirit is down it's never short of amazing just what the Captain can do for me. I am a very lucky woman to have such a handsome lad to call my own. The Captain is full of life...and sharing it with him in the sunshine and our new (in the works) backyard today is just what I needed.
Running update: proud to say I think I've found my personal threshold (well for now anyways ;))...I bumped up again my pace time for my speed threshold interval run. 4 x 5 minutes at 7:30 minute mile pace with 60 second rest. Yah, this pace got my goat...I was steady for the first 2 reps and on the last rep I was panting like a dog and seeing stars. But I can see why this part of training works...because after a couple weeks of these interval sessions in the mix of my workouts...my weekly runs seem difficult to run at anything slower than 8:35....my body naturally wants to run faster.
I am meeting a group of woman aka the Colorado Columbines Women Running Club this Saturday morning for a "fun run". An opportunity to meet woman in my area who have run marathon(s) or are currently training. I'm open to whatever it brings me. Hopefully a few women I can run my long distance runs with.
