Early Saturday morning we loaded up and drove to Oxford, Mississippi. Yay - family time! We were going to see Chasen's Arkansas Razorbacks play the Ole Miss Rebels.
Here are my two very cool guys. Isaac is wearing his new shoes!

The Rebels stomped the Razorbacks. Not good. After sitting in the blazing sun for several hours (Isaac was covered) we sleepily drove home. I was supposed to do a 3-miler. It didn't happen. Just 3 miles!!!! But I just didn't have it in me.
I composed an e-mail to John as I watched Isaac enjoy some crawling time this morning before church. I stated the whole 30 weeks of training bit, and how I felt that I was teetering on burnout. I have come a long way in 30 weeks! But I have more to go, of course, and the marathon is only 7 weeks away. Yikes! John always knows just what to say. He said "It's not burnout, just some easily fixed cumulative fatigue." Well, I don't know exactly how we'll fix it just yet, but I trust that we will. Onward and upward!
I finally got around to doing my 8-miler for the day. Just 8 - whoo hoo! Because of the whole "blazing sun" issue from yesterday, I opted to do this rather short longrun on my treadmill. Mile 1 was done at 2:1. Miles 2-7 were run sold at 12:30 (supposed to be 12:35, but Teddy Tready does 12:30 quite easily). Mile 8 was done at 2:1. My average was 12:37. Good enough!
Tomorrow I have to do 60 minutes of cross training. Oh Lordy... the bike will kill me, as will the elliptical. Stay tuned!
