Well, I finally got hubby outside today for a run. It was great and I am sooooooo proud of him. He did great!!! At one point going down the hill he was going at a pace of 8:30-9:00, a little too fast, but while he was doing it he said he felt fine. Coming toward the last hill, he could feel it, but he stuck it out, and the heat didn't help. Well done hubby:)

Guess you could say I've kind of tapered this week, as I've only run two runs so far, 5.57 & 3 miles. My 10K race is in two days, but if the weather is like today, it will be great. I might go out tomorrow and run another easy 3, but I might also just take off until rest day:)

Forgot to mention that I played tennis on Monday and Wednesday. Each day played 2 sets for about 2 hours each. With the humidity, it was tiring (guess that explains the lack of runs/mileage this week), but fun to be out there again. I can't wait till my tournament was over. I never should have agreed to play. Though I love it, it uses different muscles (thankfully nothing is sore), but I am noticing that my feet are more tender:( Damn, I have to protect my feet, I have a race on Sunday, and a few more races this year, and then the big one next year. I should have held off on the tennis till after the marathon. Live and learn. But the tournament is the weekend of July 26th and 27th, so the end is near:)
