Almost through the week

Man this week is creepy crawling right on by.  It might be because I have a 10.5K race this Saturday or it could be because Labor Day is September 6th, but I think it's because my mom called me last night and asked if she could take the girls down to the beach with them over Labor Day weekend.  Yep, I think that's the reason my week is going by so slowly.  Next weekend I'll have a whole Saturday and Sunday to myself with just the hubs.  OMG what to do, what to do.  The reason the girls are going with my mom to the beach is because we made plans to go to a friends house out of town to watch the Auburn Tigers whoop butt on opening day of College Football.  My mom thought it would be best to let the girls go with her since she knew they would have so much fun there than watching football and who am I to disagree.

I told Monkey last night that she was going to the beach with Me-mee and she took off trying to find her bathing suit so she could get ready to go to the ocean, her words not mine.  She carried her bathing suit all around last night and this morning told me she wanted to put her bathing suit on so she could go to the ocean.  I have a feeling I'm going to get sick of hearing about it come next Friday.

On today's schedule I'm running 7 miles.  This was suppose to be a tempo run but I think I'm going to change this week's speed work around to something like this:

Mile 1 - Warmup mile
Mile 2 - Run somewhere around 8:09 pace
Mile 3 - Semi cool down
Mile 4 - Somewhere around 8:09 pace
Mile 5 - Semi cool down
Mile 6 - Somewhere around 8:09 pace
Mile 7 - Cool down run to the house and stretch.

Bug is coming with me to the track so she can just run 8 laps around while I try to slowly kill myself.  I'm letting her ride her bike over there while I jog and then she can ride her bike home.  Since I've gotten the pain mostly out of my hip and I'm not going to make the mistake of putting on my old running shoes, I'm hoping this will be pain free afterwards.  Keeping my fingers crossed.
