catching up

what a week! been busy. all good though. 

June 7: am run 6.1 miles – hilly/hot; pm run 3.25 miles – treadmill

June 6: 5k race – spontaneous race to mix things up – was fun!

June 3: 1st run = 3 miles – treadmill, 2nd run = 3.1 miles – outside

June 2: 2.55 miles

For the past few weekends, I have been doing a two-a-day run on Sundays and I am really enjoying it. I know i won’t always be able to do this, especially when i start cranking the weekend long runs for the marathon. But, for now, I DO like it. In fact, i seem to have more energy on the 2nd run. I love my K-Swiss shoes and I’m loving some old and new tunes i’ve gotten off itunes: Lady GaGa, Erasure, Tony Bennett, and other random techno stuff! Love finding new good tunes, don’t you?

In other news, I booked my trip to Los Angeles for late June. Very excited about it! Looking forward to seeing friends and the change of scenery will be fantastic! Coming up this week, a good friend from the Bay Area is coming to visit. Been friends for 20 yrs. Can’t wait to see her and spend quality time together. She’s a gem!

I’ll end with a quote from a book i just bought: The Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell (also wrote, the Tipping Point & Blink…both I have not read)

“We are too much in awe of those who succeed and far  too dismissive of those fail”  – something to think about.

here’s a pic from one of the neighborhoods i like to run in. Cheers!

  1. 2-a-days are a great way to add in extra miles and keep good form the whole way. It will also help you push through tired legs when you’re doing those longer runs and races. Which K-Swiss shoes did you get? I’ve been hearing good things about them.

  2. I’ve never done two-a-days. I bet Sadie would like that. And the weather is just getting nice up her so I may think about it.
