Friday's Long Run

Well, this week we have decided to run our long run this Saturday as the kids have not had school for the past 2 we will have a 6 miler tomorrow; then a 7 miler on Monday as we are switching the week so Kelli & I can do our first "7 miles" together...since the holidays otherwise would not allow us too....Hope everyone has a healthy and happy holiday season....

Long Run This Week

Today's 6 mile run was like a heat wave...38 degrees...better than our 19 on Monday with wind blowing so hard we were still frozen on Tuesday.  Wednesday's run was in 10 degree weather but no wind so if felt great.  Today was a great run and we all felt like rock stars....Pattie is nursing some injuries so she will be on the elliptical for the next 2 weeks doing the same mileage as we are....

Friday's Long Run 11/12/10

Ok, we went out for a nice easy 6 miler....and ended up finishing at a 10:30 pace.  Our goal for the team was to be under 11:00, well, looks like we will need another goal...everyone is doing so great!!  They were talking about when we first started and they could only run a 1/2 mile; we added mileage each week...and here we are at 6 miles already and now working on some speedwork.. We have been doing fartleks and some sprints on our 3 and 4 mile runs...and it is paying off as our 11:00+ pace is now a thing of the past....come Monday we will need to discuss what our new goals will be so we can accomplish those as proud of YOU!!
