Hey Yall, What's UP??? So I ran today. Not as far as I would of liked to but hey I did get to go out and run. It was a nice day. Let's see it was about 45 degrees and cloudy. I was so excited to be outside. I get tired of the treadmill. I have some injuries so I have been doing more strength training and YOGA. I hate YOGA!!! I am not flexible at all. It is a very good way to prevent injuries though, so hey bring it on. I am always up for a challenge. I think I fall more than actually doing the poses(sp?). So if you want a good laugh just join me for YOGA. I am so glad all of you are posting. I think it helps all of us to stay focused even if we don't post something. See you in February!!!

Hold me accountable...

I leave tomorrow evening to go visit my sister in Nebraska. I'll be there till Tuesday. My training schedule says I need to do a 10 mile run this weekend. I know I won't want to do it while I am on vacation, but I need to. I am telling you girls this so I can be held accountable and make sure I do it!! And if I'm a loser and end up not doing it, you have my permission to yell at me and tell me I suck. :0)

A Good Day!

Okay so it has been awhile. I decide Wed. I would try and run a longer run just to see how I would do. The longest distance I have ran since Wasatch was a 10k in July. Ever since then I have been doing 5-5.5miles a day. So I jumped on the treadmill, "yes, I'm back to the old treadmill." And ran 7miles in 58 min. Not to bad for an Old lady. I felt really good. If I would have had time I would have kept going. It felt so great to get my run on again. Ever since I sprained my ankle it's been tough to get the distane in. But I feel like I'm finally back! And just in time to start the Del Sol training. Hope everyone's training is going good....I know it's hard to get out there, or on the treadmill, but once your finished OH WHAT A FEELING! Hopefully now I can get some of this poundage off, I've put on since my ankle injury.

Now to let everyone know, since Zhalore's not tooting her own horn.....She did the St. George marathon. And did Great! So proud of you girl. After seeing you did one and my friend Stephanie is training for Boston. I think I might have to take one on. Any one want to start training for one with me? I need a training partner. Since all my running girls live far away it will have to be an online buddy. Anyone in??????

Hello again, I AM BACK. Okay so here it is again the leg assignments. And yes they have changed. I warned you this may happen. We had someone new join our team and so here we are...
2-Nikki(Sarah's neice)
So lets get training! They may change if situations do, so keep posted and just keep up the good training!

Go figure...

...that I break my rusty time on an 8 mile run. I got in 8 miles this morning at a 9:24 pace. I realized that my longer runs are usually better times. I must require more time to get warmed up and get into my cadence! Seems I don't get really into my run until the 2-2.5 mile mark.

Hey to all of you. Here are the legs that I have assigned. They may change but for now this is what I have. I hope all of you will be able to train your best so that these runs will be cake walk for you. And if they already are cake walk for you then great! I would like to get all of your paces for a 10k. So please post them so that I will know. That info may change the leg assignments.
