9 MILES ON THE TREADMILL:)

Fantastic run on the TM today at the gym. Gym was actually quiet and empty, so that was a super nice bonus. Finished 9 miles in 1:27:14, and the HR never exceeded 140, even with drift. Gotta love base building training!!!

Run was great considering I haven't run since Sunday:( You'd think now that the kids are in school all day, I'd get a break, but unfortunately, as always the first few days of school, I have lots of catching up to do with errands, etc, so no dice on the running. but I know I'll get my runs in next week. Though my race is a week from Sunday and I should be in some sort of a taper, guess you could say, I've already been in a taper. LOL

But what I have chosen to do is make my runs long and slow, since they are so few and far between. So, tomorrow will most likely be an off day, and I will aim to run 12 on Sunday!!!

Oh yeah, today's run took me past 500 miles run since January 2nd when I started, as today is September 5th, I'm still running and it's 8 months later. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great job on the run. Hopefully, next week you'll be able to get into a routine. One more week till the race, you are going to do great.

Nine miles on the treadmill? Wow. I can barely stand the treadmill for 3or 4 miles. Good job!

Your solid base training and those over-distance longer mileage will pay BIG dividends during your upcoming Nike 10k Race!! I can't wait to read about your success...no pressure right?
