Almost chilly this morning???

This morning was glorious, almost cool. Got to Memorial around 6:00 am. After stretching, I did my planned 10R/3W/10R. I walked another :43 at the end to finish my 1.5 miles.

This morning, for a treat (an expensive treat if you ask me) I had a smoothie at my gym where I go to shower/shave. They have frozen fruit of all kinds. I had a blueberry, raspberry, strawberry with a scoop of protein (25g). When she was making the thing she went over to what looked like an ice cream machine and proceeded to dispense what I would recognize as Dairy Queen ice cream. "OH NO!," I said to myself. But while I was paying, I asked her what that was and she said it was sugar-free soy yogurt. Well, that was good. I didn't have to throw it away. It is sooooo yummy. I'm just finishing it up now.

Well, I'm really looking forward to Saturday. I'm scheduled for a 25 minute continuous run. I believe that 12.5 minutes (the halfway point) will put me slightly past the .75 marker so I'll probably go where this man hasn't gone in a long, long time...to the 1 mile marker. Then I'll finish up the 2 miles with a brisk walk after 25 minutes.

I really find myself getting anxious between runs. I can hardly wait a whole 48 hours to run again. I know though that at this time, the 1 day rest is necessary. Hopefully, by the time Katy Fit starts, I'll be strong enough to add an extra day.
