Why you ask...would I name my blog potato salad? BC I MADE SOME AWESOME Potato salad yesterday! Here is a pic! :)
Yummy red skin potatos...dill...celery....onions...were a few of the key ingredients. And get this...my husband said "The best potato salad I've ever had in my life!!!" SCORE!! BETTER than his MOMS!! He never says that...that is a huge ego inflation for me!
SO I've been running everyday since Thursday. Friday 6 miles, Saturday sprint miles, Sunday 3.5, today 3.5. I'm happy to announce yesterday's pace was 8:50. I think that is my best so far. TOday was worse...I ran early in the am for the first time...and half on the dreadmill and half outside and it was FREEZING! I don't run well on treadmills..so bare with it. But here they are..in all their glory!
Funny thing. I couldn't get my ipod to sync up to nikeplus.com. It kept saying check my date on my computer. Well I changed a bunch of things and did a system restore on my computer, call technical support for apple....then realize my calendar does say 2007!!!!!!!! DUH!!!!!!!! Blonde moment...it fixed itself then! haha.
Next bit of affairs.....I NEED SOME ADVICE ON THIS ONE! I am sched to run a half marathon (my first) on March 30 in Atl, GA! Well I'm getting super antsy and just want to run one really bad. THere is one here in town on Feb 2nd. By then my longest run will only be 8 miles...but I'm so tempted to just gut it out. Even if I have to walk some. I have a HUGEEEEEEEE Fear of failure and it holds me back in many ways. I get anxiety about long runs...so I usually gut them out a day or two before I'm supposed to bc I get scared putting it off. With that said....I'm super tempted to just gut out the half marathon Feb 2 to put away my fears that I can finish. THis way I can just focus on my training for atlanta (ill still have about 2 months to train)..so that I can run a good race. Also this race is really cheap (Feb 2nd one) $40...and really flat. So it would be a good first? WHAT DO U THINK?! PLEASE COMMENT!!
ANd lastly...I think I am going to be a triathlon girl this summer. I was born a swimmer...morphed into a runner...and ready for some metamorphosis (think butterfly) into a biker triathlon chick!
NOWWWWWWWWWW....I just need to find a bike!! Any advice would be great for this too...I'm a graduate student low on funds.
PEACE friends :)
