dang your speedy! great job with week one! i ran 10 today too! i tried to follow the training rules and go slower for my LR.. it was SUPER hard! 🙂 your gonna rock chicago!flying wait wait wait? you guys have a plane? how fricken sweet! i'm gonna email you– i wonder how far away you live from me! 🙂
I can't get my LR's to slow down and it's hard. I have my Garmin, but going slower is so difficult sometimes. I think as the distance gets longer I'll naturally slow down.CJ
Oh and yep we do have a plane. I just wish the weekend weather would stay nice enough for us to get some flying done.CJ
Sounds like you are having some great running weather.And, I agree with Nicole, you are speedy!
See… I told you that you were speedy 🙂 I'm so glad that you guys got to come boating with us after your run!!! Now we just have to get your shin better so that you can kneeboard with me! Great job keeping up with your running schedule!
