Hello there! Sorry I was MIA fora bit, I took 2 days off after my race as my ear and throat have not been doing very well. I feel ok, but I definitely have something my body is trying to fight off. I did not want to run this morning, I was just so out of it but I did it anyway. I really needed to get back on track. I know 2 days off is nothing but to me it felt like forever! The run this morning was good. I am on week 3 of my half training so it was my longest run so far this year without walk breaks. I kept my pace slow. My plan from Runner's World Smart Coach had me running at an 11:48 mm pace but I was faster, averaging an 11:10 pace, though my last mile was a 10:16 which I was please with. I felt good. I ran with my fuel belt and it made all the difference as this morning it was quite humid. There was a man out running in a long sleeve shirt and pants! I could not believe it. I felt like spraying one of my bottles of water on him or something to help him out! LOL! I was burning up in my tank and shorts, I cannot imagine what he felt like! Not a smart idea if you ask me....

Tomorrow will be my bike and ST day. My weekly schedule is a bit off from what I wanted but I think I can still get all my workouts in despite my 2 days off.

Monday - OFF
Tuesday - OFF
Wednesday - 5 mile run
Thursday - ST and Easy 20 mile ride
Friday - 4 mile run
Saturday - OFF
Sunday - 3 mile run

Wow! Very impressive, and I also think it's great that you have lost so much weight. I lost a lot too, but am not an athlete!

Ugh, isn't it frustrating to be sick??? I have pretty much been sick this whole month! One thing after another.

Good job with the long run! You are doing wonderfully!

You mean he was running in a long sleeve in Houston? Wow that's really hard to imagine.
