I think Xenia and I got jobbed. I mean, for this challenge, we had something quantifiable (mileage and number of runs). Suzy RunsALot over there wanted more variety in her runs or something like that. Honestly, I usually tune her out after about 10 seconds or a paragraph...whichever comes first. WTF? Variety? Who the hell puts that as a challenge? More importantly, who agrees to that type of chall...oh, wait.
Here are the final numbers for last week
Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday runs.
And Saturday was a tempo run. At least, I think it was. I had a small window to get a run in and, through exhaustive research about the FIRST program (read: more than one website and an email), I thought I'd try a tempo run. It was only 2 miles, so I don't know if that qualifies, but I did it :45 under my normal pace. Maybe it was just a "I Need to Get This Run In" run. Felt good, either way.
So there it is: 4 out of the 5 weeks, I got all of my runs in. Xenia was 4 for 5 as well. Who the hell knows how XC2 is going to grade herself. Maybe if she saw more tulips and fuzzy animals on her run, she considers that a success. Either way, it was fun and I'm glad I'm finally getting my sorry arse back out on the road and....gulp....I owe a lot of that to the other 2.
