A better run today and 4 weeks until Princess!

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I knew I had to get my run accomplished today and mission has been accomplished. I was scheduled for a 40 miute run but I extended it to 50 minutes. Of course, it was an easier run today over the 12.5 miler Friday and it was alot prettier LOL. I still have that littletwinge in the outside lateral part of my knee. Its not my knee that is the problem, its the muscles that are pulling according to Dr. Lake. I am definitely ready for another ART appointment which is Tuesday.

We are supposed to get a CRAPLOAD of snow starting about Tuesday and we could be looking at about 14" of the crap. Then, the winds will kick up leading to blizzard conditions. I am giddy. That is why I really wanted to get out today and enjoy the bare streets. May not see the concrete for awhile. Still giddy. Today was one of those days where I did not sit down with all sorts of household chores and the run.

Today's stats:

4.19 miles (2/:30 intervals)
11:56 ap
50:01:00
413 cals burned
splits: 12:03, 12:01, 12:00, 11:42, 11:52 (.17 mi)

We are now 4 weeks from Princess at Disney World!! Airfare, hotel and park tickets already paid for. Bring it on!!!

    I can't believe Princess is only 4 weeks away! I am so excited and I am not even going (yet!)! Glad you got a good rn in. I was going to try to fit in a little run but the snow (and wind) had already started by the time I had gotten home from work. Oh well.... I will believe this SnowStorm of the Century when I see it... emoticon

    Woo hoo - Princess is right around the corner! I'll be arriving on Saturday. I hope to get to the expo early and then check in. I'd love to meet up with some fellow sparkers that afternoon/evening.

    Saturday was a beautiful running day here. I turned my 40 into a 60 yesterday it was so nice out there. I had not heard about Tuesday. Sounds like another round or two of 'Chase the Snowplow' coming.

    Good job getting in your run before the big snow storm. I was so thankful my 22 miler landed on a warmish, sunny day were much of sidewalks and roads were cleared of snow. We are expecting some snow and cold temps. Good luck.

    way to go Laurie!! Yay!

    We're supposed to get the crapload of snow too. Not sure if it's quite as much of a crapload as what you're going to get; but still. We have been insanely lucky this winter. I think what you guys have gotten this winter is what we had LAST winter!! I brought my laptop home in case the little bit of ice we're supposed to get tonight does anything in addition to that!

    Yeah, when I saw colossal + snowstorm on the weather channel's forecast, I was all emoticon

    I guess we have gotten off easy compared to New England but I'm still not looking forward to this!! Glad you were able to get out and have a good run before all the snow comes. Happy that things went better since that rough long run. You're going to go great at Princess!! You know I'll be there in spirit cheering you on when the 27th rolls around
