Even though I felt tired on this run, it appears I must be in pretty good shape comparing it to similar runs a month out from my CIM Marathon. I was really not wanting to get up a 5:00 am this morning to go and run. The first few miles I kept thinking..why am I doing this...then about mile 4 I settled into a comfortable effort and from then on the run felt pretty good. I pick up the pace for the last 5 miles to run at MP but had to push the last .5 to get there.

Still debating on running another marathon this spring. My foot/toe is still a sore subject and will probably determine what I do.

Ran Small Loop & Smallville to make 9 Miles. 3 @ comfortable Pace, 3 @ 10K Pace, 3 progressive down to MGP. Felt good on this run…even at the end. 6's were hard but managable.

Raining cats and dogs this morning so I went to the gym. 1 mile EL @ 9:00 then 1 mile TM @ 7:30 pace and 1 set of  20 assorted weights inbetween each. Total miles 9.

Hey guys...there's another Kingsbury runner on the blog. I met her the other day running on one of our country back roads. She goes by Simple Runner on the blog. If you have a minute go and visit her blog. She would like advice and encouragemet with her running. I can give her encouragment but you guys are much more qualified to give her advice! (you too Burt :-)

This run was definitly NOT intended! I went out planning on a 13 mile run but when I was 9 miles into my loop I came upon a low water crossing that was about knee deep in swiftly flowing water. It was dark and I ran into it to anckle deep soaking my shoes and socks completly. The temperature was already 42 degrees, it was raining lightly so I was already cold! I had to turn around and backtrack 9 miles making the run 18 miles. It caused me to be very late to work too! :-(

I had been dreading jumping my milage up to 18 but when I was forced to do it this morning it was not that bad. Actually, I was pretty pleased with the results. I felt like I could have upped the effort at any point and still finished strong. I did run the last 3 miles at MGP.

Glad to get a longer run under my belt, it's making me more confident that I can be in top shape for the Irvine Marathon if I decide to run it.
