Run to top 3 – Day 2

I have a very long weekend ahead of me. I wasn’t going to run. But I promised myself two runs a week. I ran Sunday and today is Friday. I am cutting it close.

I took my 9 month old golden retriever for a walk earlier with my girls. I could call my myself good for being active today. Nope not gonna do it. I challenged myself to get top 3 in a race. I have to run. I have to take nearly 10 minutes off my time to even hope to do well in March.

Off to the treadmill I go. I would like to run outside but to be honest Calgary in January is not a great outdoor running environment. Not because it’s minus a million out. The weather has been pretty good for the last few weeks. It’s because all roads, sidewalks and paths are like running in sand covered ice. It’s just not safe. I have a bad hip as it is. I really don’t need to slip and give some driver a quick interpretive dance while catching myself from a fall. No one needs to see that.

I will also add my basement is a disaster. I have started the gut job that comes before developing a basement. Everything is piled in the middle of the floor. This gives me an internal dilemma. Do I clean or do I run???? RUN!!!

Pretty good run today. I think if memory serves me Sunday’s run was 29 min 23 seconds. Today’s run…………
28 min 21 Seconds!!

At least I am going in the right direction.
