I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day and beginning of the new week. My beautiful mother and I are separated by a few hundred miles of ocean and about 4,000 more of North America, hence we didn’t spend the holiday together. But I love her; I appreciate her; I hope I have her skin when I’m her age.

Day of Rest
Saturday, May 7th
Tried my best to do my interval training. I over-estimated my bad assness and ran a mile at 10:00 pace, THEN tried to amp it up to 8:30 pace. Yea, that only worked like twice. I was scheduled to do 4 400s @ 8:30 and 4 400s @ 10:30 paces…I only got one legit set in, but managed to do three intervals before calling it a day. SUMMARY: 24 minutes on the treadmill.
Sunday, May 8th
Long Run Day – 4 miles @ 9:16 pace = 37:10 minutes
I loved this day. I felt proud of me on this day. I experienced the runner’s “trots” on this day. TMI. My sincerest apologies.

REST – my body felt it this morning. It was like trying to left 500lbs sacks of potatoes (why anyone would buy them in bulk in that size is beyond me. Maybe the military does that). I ended up coming home from the gym and moving my schedule down one day. Listen to your body, man, I’m tellin’ ya.
