Running Accomplishments:

Maybe someday I'll have something noteworthy to post in this section. I have only completed three 5ks and a 5 miler; all at an average pace somewhere in the 9:00-9:30min/mile range

Painter's Half 2010 - 2:03:54 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Painter's Half Marathon - would like to keep an average pace of 9:00min/mile. 

Painter's Half - Went over my goal and finished in 2:03:54 :( It was my first half though.  I had a great time and learned what I need to work on.  

Salt Lake Half Marathon - would like to finish in under 2 hours. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Would like to complete a full marathon in the fall of 2010 and finally conquer the Herriman Hill...to be honest, there are several hills in Herriman I'd love to conquer, but that one for sure!

Personal:

I am a stay-at-home mother, married and have two young boys.

Ok, this is depressing.  After taking several months off of running, I am now officially out of shape. I could only run 2 miles this morning before I caught a cramp so bad I had to turn around and come home.  SO frustrating! I'm now back at the beginning stage of running that I was this time last year but with expectations way to high for myself.  Not a good place to be.  I just need to be patient with myself and keep at it.  Hopefully my speed/endurance will come back faster than I think it will.

Another slow 2.25 miles this morning at AP of 10:12.  I did try and not focus on how out of shape I am this morning and just enjoy being outside by myself with no screaming children around me.  The stars were beautiful this morning! I love this time of year when the air is so crisp and cool but not so cold that I can't feel my face.  I did get a little nervous at the sound of howling coyotes up the hill from my house.  If that doesn't get me motivated to work on my speed, I don't know what will!

3.0 TM miles this evening.  Mile 1 warmup at 6.0.  Miles 2 and 3 at 6.5.  I felt pretty good overall.  No IT pain!

2.5 Miles.  AP 9:48.  I learned this morning to try and focus on my breathing while running down the .75 mile hill in my neighborhood.  I've gotten a cramp every time I run down that thing and I think it's because I'm not focusing on my breathing like I should.

3.5 TM miles this afternoon.  Warm-up 1st mile at 6.0.  Miles 2-3 at 6.5.  Last .5 cool down at 6.0.  I'm a lot slower than I'd like to be but I'm getting there! And hey, no IT pain either!

4 TM miles early this morning.  1 mile warmup at 6.0.  Miles 2 and 3 at 7.0 - this was easier than I thought it would be.  The first .5 miles was kind of rough and I was tempted to stop several times but once I got used to the pace, I really enjoyed myself! Hooray for no IT pain!
