Total Miles Trained For Elijah: 216
Finally, the rain has stopped. I have not run since Saturday. And Chasen has been out of town on business, so I have truly been in vacation mode. But today I laced up the 'ole Brooks and got out there. And would you believe that it was only 60 degrees? THANK HEAVENS. It was so nice out there.
I was to do interval training today. Specifically, five 800m yassos with 5 minutes of recovery. When I got out there, I realized that it was hard to keep up with both time AND distance. I guess I have a one-track mind. None the less, I did my best. I am pretty darn sure that I did them all at or below the prescribed time of 5:00. For that, I was proud. And I think I ended up doing more than five.
You know, there's always something. I was running along (in my neighborhood) thinking that I was so thankful to live "in town" where dogs don't just run loose. The next thing I saw, believe it or not, was a loose dog! Aaaaaaaargh! It was a large, gangly puppy of Lab descent (so it was very friendly). I shooed it away. Then it wanted to torment the small dog that a lady was walking, so I had to step in and help. We managed to shoo it away, but it was not easy. I tried to ID it, but it only had its shots tags and not an ID tag.
