The joy of running

Last weekend I met up with my friend Melissa and we ran 15 miles.  I met her at 5:45am in Arlington and we ran a nice and easy 15miles.  I felt great.  I would have never gotten up that early if I was heading out by myself.  This round of training, I don’t feel pressured to get my runs in.  I am actually feeling relaxed about it.  FW Marathon is 6 weeks away.  I’m going to run 18 miles tomorrow but I will be doing it alone.  Most likely I’ll go to the Mansfield Trail and I will head over there early most likely right when the sun comes up.

Today I walked the dogs 1/2 mile and did a quick 1.5 mile run, came home did some ab work, some arm work, and a sitting squat.  I only slept for 5 hours last night.  I was so sleepy when I got home at 9:30pm after my FBI class that I curled up in bed and started watching net flix.  The only problem with that is that I continued watching and ended up falling asleep at midnight.  Tonight I have to go to bed early.  The long run will suck tomorrow if I don’t.

I’m officially registering for the FW marathon by 9/30 and I will be set.  I’m excited because Melissa and Jen will stay here at the house and we will head out to the race together.  It’ll help with morale for sure.  They are planning on Galloway 2:1.  I might stick with them, or I might not.  I think I want to run the first 2 miles then Galloway 3:1 until mile 18 then walk a minute after every mile until the end.  I look forward to just running my own race and that’s that.  :-)  Or walk at every water station from the get go.  I don’t know.  Either way I will finish and be happy.
