Six Mile Sunday

So excited that I got my long run done.  Six miles in today, 56:29.  I was too busy on the nice 50 degree days that we had here in MI, and of course waited until it started snowing again and the temperature dropped to 27.  No venturing outside for me,  6 miles on the treadmill.  Week one done of training-  4 runs in (15 miles) and one brief cross training day.

I had a very interesting observation today though.  I do not normally watch football but that was what was on the TV when I turned on the treadmill (if I wanted to change the channel it I would have had to run through the house and adjusted our bedroom tv),  so I opted to put my MP3 player on and watch the football game (at least it gave me somthing to look at.)   I know that football takes a lot time to play;  but this was ridiculous.  When I started running the time clock said 11:30 left in the game.  Do you know that it took them 55 minutes to play that 11:30.  CRAZY.   Well, it kept me entertained-  but it was a very interesting observation.

  I know I should have all my resoultions made by now but I am still not sure.  There is one I know for sure and it is this:

Finish the Kalamazoo Marathon under 4:30.  The Kalamazoo Marathon lands on Mothers Day so I figure that would be great gift to myself!!!!! 

Have a wonderful Sunday and a Happy New Year.


  1. My husband is a huge football fanatic but I'm not at all. It takes forever for them to play a game!!!

  2. Yes, and right there is the reason I don't watch football. Well, that and I have no idea what is going on in the field. The Kalamazoo goal sounds wonderful, and with the current pace, you are on track for sure!

  3. You are doing great! Missed seeing you at MOPS! We did not get into town until 11:00pm Monday night so Will stayed home from school another day...he did not mind that. Hope to see you soon!
