Back in the saddle...

Well, maybe not saddle, but I was back on the treadmill! After fighting the crud for the past few days, I am feeling better. Not 100%, but definitely better. Last night, for the 3rd night in a row, I went to bed almost immediately after putting the kiddo to bed.

I hated to miss the Rodeo Run today, but I had class all day long. Both of my classes are kicking my butt right now. Marketing, because there's so much reading. Stat, because well, it's Stat and is confusing as hell. Until today, I thought my Prof was awesome. He works a lot of examples, which really helps me grasp all the concepts better. But today was brutal. He was showing us how to do our forcasting project and was just whipping through the Excel shortcuts and formulas....I was lost. I did feel a little better when I looked around the room and noticed that the faces around me looked just as puzzled as I felt.

So back to the Rodeo Run....It sounded like a good time was had by all. Huge congrats go out to SteveB for his 1st place costume and to June for her PR!!! After class, I spent some quality time with the kiddo who was all tired out from hanging out with her grandparents and cousins. She actually went to bed a little early, which allowed me to run on the treadmill. The hubby has to work all day tomorrow, so I knew I would not get in my LR tomorrow with Kay. I was having terrible withdrawals since I had not run since Wednesday.

It felt great to be running again! I started out really slow and gradually increased the speed. As always, I could not manage to run as fast or as easily as I run outdoors. But, I did manage to run the last 1/2 mile or so at a 10 min/mile pace. Here are the stats...

Running Stats
Conditions - Treadmill
Total run time - 46:23 minutes
Total distance - 4 miles
Pace - 11:32

Walked - 4:37 minutes

Have a great rest of the weekend!!!
