I still am hoping to make it to a 10K again by May 3rd so here is my plan.
I have to run 4 times per week!
This week- 20-25 minute runs and maybe 3 miles this weekend
Week 2- 20 minute runs and 3.5 miles on Sat.
Week 3- 25-30 minute runs and 4 miles on Sat.
Week 4- 30 minute runs and 3.5 miles on Sat.
Week 5- 30 minute runs and 4.5 miles on Sat.
Week 6- 30 minute runs and 5.5 miles on Sat.
Week 7- 30 minute runs and 4 miles on Sat.
Week 8- 30 minute runs and 6.2 miles on Sunday- Run for the Zoo
That means the 10K will be a challenge as it was last summer when I ran it in July.
I am absolutely going to have to start running at about 5:30 in the morning- not just for me but for Jack. Black poodles get very hot in the sun, very quickly! It was only 66 degrees outside when I ran today and Jack was already dragging his tongue! It doesn't help that he refuses to drink water on our runs. I even carry a little bowl and extra water for him. It is a waste though because he won't touch it.
I have not been very motivated to sew lately either. I just end up being lazy- watching TV or reading. Maybe my running will give me more energy.
I got a bit depressed today when I was looking at the calendar. There are still more weeks left between now and summer vacation than there are weeks IN summer vacation! Ugh!
