Bug went through a lot this year. We finally won the fight with the special education department and got her into the speech classes that she needed when she first started school, in pre-k. She exceed in Reading in the CRCT test and her lowest grade on her report for the year was an 88. She's one smart cookie.
On the running front, I did 5.42 miles this morning in 44:58. The first mile and half was the hardest. It took me a while to find my groove but once I did, it felt oh so comfortable.
Here are the stats from this morning's run:
Mile 1 - 8:24
Mile 2 - 8:12
Mile 3 - 8:20
Mile 4 - 8:15
Mile 5 - 8:16
.42 - 8:17
Total time: 44:58
Total Mile 5.42
Calories Burned: 554
When my watch beeped for the fourth time I was amazed that I only had a mile left. Runs like that are so awesome. They are easy peasy and it makes running really enjoyable. The only problem I'm having now is my thighs. They are very tight and sore. I think, and I know shame on me, they are sore from yesterday's 3 mile speed work. I didn't get to properly stretch like I like to after the run because I was already running late and had to jump in the shower. I did manage to stretch some in the shower but I was limited in how much movement I could do.
Anywho, I'll be doing another 3 miles speed work in the morning then taking Friday off as a rest day to gear myself up for my 10 miler on Saturday. For some reason these are tough miles for me and come hell or high water, I'm running these 10 miles Saturday morning.
