SUNDAY, JUNE 29, 2008

Had a great 5 mile run on the TM at the gym. Since I've only run one 5 miler this week (been fighting a chest cold:( Not sure if I got it from my youngest or from the doctors office. ARRGG.... I went to the gym with no expectations. Told hubby I'd do 3 or 4 really easy, to see how I feel. Was concerned how the legs would feel with the time off from running, but also concerned how the lungs would be, as I was still coughing up a lung every now and then. But overall, I felt great and wanted to get this run in before we headed out to my nephews graduation. I still can't believe he's a graduate. He's heading to Juniata to play soccer and study pre med. Not only is he a fantastic soccer player, SMART kid, he's cute too, and is just beginning the next phase of his life. Congrats and good luck, I know you'll do awesome!!!

So, I got to the gym, fired up my ipod video, and off I went. Set the speed at 5.4 to warm up, and then upped it to 5.6, 5.8 and ended with 6.0 overall. Run felt fantastic, and I only coughed once or twice. So I was happy.
