Last Ditch Half-Marathon Training...

Yeah baby! I've been doing OK with running. Wednesday, I took the dogs running about 2.5 miles in the woods at lunchtime, then went to Wednesday night track workout. I've been doing the track nights for maybe a month now. Wednesday we ran 1-mile repeats, 6 of 'em (others did up to 8). Not to0 bad, I was running in the 7:00 to 7:15 min/mile range. Good group on Wednesdays! Looks like I've been 'roped in' and am now expected to show up. I sent an email in the afternoon to my running bud, "are you going tonight"? The reply, "of course"....so that sets up the guilt trip for even thinking of blowing it off! Sigh...

And of course I still have 1.1 weeks to train for the Houston Half!! Smirking. I'll run today and Saturday (RTW), then a long run on Sunday. Wrap it up with a couple of runs next week and I'll be good to go! Good times!
