I laid off this week (not that I had been really doing that much running anyway...) and ran just a couple of times after work with my WRF, and then a short run last night. I am kind of directionless at the moment, and not feeling too much like getting my run on, but once I'm out there I always glad I went. It seems weird to not be training for a race. Wait, wait, Jess...didn't you say you were going to do that Own It 5K training plan? Why yes, yes I did...but I loaned my book to a coworker I couldn't resist...she's been a 'non-runner' in the way I was running but still was a 'non-runner' for years, and has finally 'come of out of the closet' and declared, I am a runner! I want to improve! I am going to train ON PURPOSE for something after she shaved 5 minutes off her 5K time from the same race she did a year ago. I went all "Run Like a Mother" on her and forced my book at her. She was super excited...but I didn't think before handing it over, that I really wanted the copy for myself. I really should have at least hit the photocopy machine before I handed it over. Not that I have an actual 5K in mind to train for...that December one I talked about looks promising, except that I will be disappointed if I put in the time and it ends up being icy or something. I might give up and buy an extra copy of Train Like a Mother on my Kindle so I am never with out it. That seems like a reasonable expense, doesn't it?
This week: 2.8 + 2.2 + 3.5 = 8.5
