Long time!

I realize it's been a LONG time since I've journaled here! I HAVE been keeping up somewhat with my running/training program. As I'm sure you know, every now and then we all have off weeks. I did get sick about 2 weeks ago so I didn't get much exercise in that week at all!

I did bring Pixie for Howloween and she was adorable but she didn't win! Oh well maybe next year! I was sick for a whole week but that Saturday, I felt much better so I ran with our running group...we did 6 miles! Yay! After that, it was back on track! I ran hills that following week and boy was my CORE hurting! My legs were fine but ugh my core was killing me!!!!

For the hill workout, we did 5 minutes times 4 which was a total of 20 minutes of hills.

We started off a warmup mile normal flat land....then we did 20 minutes of hills.....then 1 mile cooldown lap, then we worked on our core. So not only is my butt and legs sore, so are my abs and upper body!!! lol! It was a great workout, though! And I wore my watch so it was a total of 3.75 miles! Yay!

This past Saturday, I ran my first 5K since the spring!!! I wasn't sure how I was going to do. I wanted to range in the 27 minutes but I didn't....I finished in 28:23. That's really good for me, though...It's a 9:40 mile. My last 5K time was 29:01 so I did improve some! I was happy but still I could have done better. Oh well. I did get 2nd place overall! lol It was by far the SMALLEST race I've ever ran but it was fun!

Now on track this week! Madalynn, our new adopted dog was DEATHLY ill Monday morning. The Dr said if we had been an hour later with her, we'd have lost her! My sweet girl...she was really bad off and it happened overnight! She had Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis! It was some NASTY stuff! In looking it up online, I saw that most of the dogs who have this die from it because they dont' get medial attention in time. Well, we did and she's ok now but whew that was SCARY!!!!!

Thanks for sticking with me even though I've been a bad blogger lately!!! :0)
