Isaac says "I've come a long way, too. I have moved to the big boy tub!"
This week was a mixed bag. I finally went to the doc about my hurting ears. As it turns out, I had a bit of fluid (and now have antibiotics) and A LOT of build-up in there. Eeeew! So I had the grand experience of an ear wash? If you've ever had one, you know that it is an experience indeed. But now my ears are clean as a whistle! No more q-tip usage...
By Tuesday I already felt better, which was good because I had to run 4 miles. No sweat! Wednesday was 6 and Friday was 5 (which I actually got to do outdoors, a rarity for a non-longrun).
Isaac is interested in Keira's ankle bracelet. Konrad's shirt says "iPoo." Ha!
Here, he tries to escape Keira. Fickle man!
On Saturday I had my FINAL pre-marathon longrun. Yikes! I was fit to be tied by the time I got to get out the door to do it. Running is SUCH a stress reliever for me these days. I swear, I don't know how I'd manage without it. Alas, I was to do 8 easy miles. Something odd I have discovered is that it is a bit easier for me to go a bit faster these days. Can you believe I just typed that? I pulled 12:07, 11:46, 11:29, 11:26, 11:07, 11:01, 11:07 and 11:07. Holy smokes! That's an 11:24 average.
This week will consist of two easy runs and, hopefully, a lot of rest. We shall see! I will update later in the week as to my status on all fronts. Rocket City, here I come.
