Ran it last night on the treadmill - talk about boring. I was curious to see what my pace was going in to this weekend. I maintained about a 10:30 mile, which was faster than I thought. Something tells me that I'm a lot slower outside when exposed to the elements. I feel pretty good today, though sore about the hips and a little in the knees. Tonight I will spend a lot of time stretching and in the tub, and tomorrow I'll get some easy work on the elliptical or my bike (depends on if I want to sleep in or not!). I feel like things are going well, though I need to be better about doing my cross training and short runs; I always make my long ones, but I know I'm setting myself up for injury if I don't make a better attempt at getting all the supplementary conditioning in. As always, I'm a work in progress.

yeah, treadmill miles always go faster. part of it is that the belt moves back for you- you're doing more pushing up than pushing yourself forward. great job though, keep it up! don't sweat pace. we'll just go out there and have a good time.

Definitely - it's just nice to get a vague idea of how I'm doing. I definitely look forward to getting back on the path and enjoying the nice weather (well, except for today's mess).

Let me know when you want to meet up so I can give you your race bag.
