Good week of running. I also got a chance to go for a ride on Bloo Saturday morning. I was a happy girl, as our last ride was over two weeks ago. Beautiful day, strong legs, all good stuff.

Still working on an "overtime" schedule. All my normal schedule, plus school drop offs and taxi service to and from the office for the broken driver. Plus, all kitchen cleaning, and any other chores which require two hands.

I hit a fun little milestone with this past week's long run. Right about the time I was crossing this bridge, I realized that every footfall from this point, back to the truck, would be the farthest I have ever run. I've run a few 7 's, and a couple 7.5's, then walked an extra 10-15 minutes, for cool down. That wasn't an official 8-mile run though. On Sunday though, I crossed the 8 mile mark on a run.

I'd better be careful, or I'm going to start to think of myself as an actual, honest-to-goodness runner.

Go me!
