Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?' - Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian

Slap me with a pardon*** and call me Scooter

Pardon from what, you might ask? A pardon from the oppressive heat and a string of 11's in my training sidebar. The weather broke a day or two ago and it is downright breezy and cool - high 60's for this morning's run. Cosmo, after my imposed hiatus, joined me. No W or T. She took off on a last minute FL roadtrip and won't be back until Sunday (she did promise to get her runs in).

We did the first mile at 10:56. Don't remember the other splits but our overall pace was 10:47. I do know that twice, once at the 2.5 mile mark and again at the 3 mile mark, we slowed down considerably. I was feeling tired and thought it would be better to slow down than walk. I am very happy to see the return of a 10 in my sidebar, after that streak of 11's. Tomorrow is a 5 mile slow run so it won't be joined by another 10 but that is okay :-)

So, with the best of intentions, here is what my schedule will look like for the rest of the summer, up to the Bud 10k (the red 6.2)

Now, I am 'Scoot'-ing off to make some wedding cupcakes. Seems like someone is getting married tomorrow.......

***Yeah, I know it technically wasn't a pardon but still.......

don't sweat on those cupcakes. didn't you see "like water for chocolate"? if you put too much emotion in it, it'll affect the bride. if you sweat in them, she might slap her manboy with a heart rate monitor. careful.

Wedding bells, yay! you are doing great on the training. You should be very proud of yourself, young lady. Keep up the great work. And if there any leftover cupcakes, you can run over to my apartment in San Diego... what do you say? Mattie and i would love to see the cupcakes... i mean YOU! :o)
