Claire did the first 1/2 mile with me.  Didn't think I was going to get out today because when I woke up, it was pouring out.  Now it's bright and sunny.  I guess it really is true: "Rain before 7:00, sun by 11:00."  I didn't do the deadend today, I went west instead.  I think I am doing better because I have to move more to keep my beeper from going off.

Today Claire and I tested out her new running shoes.  We went about 1/2 mile before she decided that we needed to walk the rest of the way.  I stopped my watch back at our house and then restarted it when she got on the bus.  I think my time was probably a little better than what is showing. 

My 1 1/2 miles was great.  The crops are all out of the fields up by the deadend.  I saw lots of deer tracks, and now that the corn is of the field on the south side of the road, I might actually see some.  The air is smelly due to the feedlot down the road.

I got out on the road about 7:15 after watching Clay get on the bus.  It was nice out - cool and the sun was still low in the sky.  My time was a little slower this morning than my last run.  My lungs seem to hurt, and have been since last winter when I was sick for so long.

I got out on the road about 8:15 after getting Claire on the bus.  There was a light rain.  I like running in light rain.  I did better on my time this morning - spent more time jogging than yesterday.

Got out on the road at 9:24 this morning.  It's a beautiful day out, just right for processing some mental stuff on the route!  My time was a little better because I was by myself.  I love living in the country on mornings like this.

 Got out on the road at 1:50.  On the way to the deadend I passed Clay and Claire's house and they were all ready to head up to the dead end.  Clay told me all of the great things about his first day to his classroom. Claire fell halfway and had a tiny melt down but recovered quickly.  It wasn't hard to keep my heartrate in the zone because on the way back we were walking against the wind.

It's been a while since I've posted.  I have been so stubborn about trying to maintain running in the morning.  Well, you know what.  It ain't gonna happen.  I like morning because there are fewer cars, fewer people, and once it's done I don't have to think about it any more.  I have finally faced reality.  Either I want to get back to running or I don't.  Today I had to be at work early so I just finished my walk/jog.  On my route I stopped to pick up my granddaughter - the one who did the Maple Syrup race with me.  I got in 2 miles.  Speed suffered, but my heartrate was up enough of the time to make it a worthwhile workout.  Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays, I will need to get out in the afternoon, but on Wed, Thurs, and Sunday, I can go in the morning - whoo hoo!

Hey all, I have fallen off the edge of the planet.  My schedule has been very chaotic lately.  Next week, when school starts, I will be able to plan better.  Also, hopefully, it will not be so hot/humid.
