Day 172: speed training

“Every day is a good day when you run.”

Well, my 8km run will have to happen either tomorrow or Friday as this morning I only had enough time to complete 30 minutes of speed training.

healthy sonFinally, after a few weeks of chaos I finally got up early and ran! Woot! The run wasn’t fantastic (although I am pleased with time and distance) however, my shins are killing me! I guess I need to get new sneakers, which is disappointing because I just bought a new pair in February. Any suggestions? I guess I need some with more cushioning.

The weather is finally starting to warm up, and my fingers are crossed that it will stay this way for a little while anyway! I haven’t set a date for my half marathon yet. I have a few races coming up, one on Mothers Day and another in August (Mud Run). I’m just playing it by ear as the latter part of this winter really sucked the energy out of me!

Anyway, I’ve heard from a few of you wanting an update on my son (thank you for your concern); I am pleased to tell you he is doing very well; in fact, here is a recent photo of him enjoying a wagon ride sans boots. Love this kid.
