This morning I went out and ran three 2 mile intervals with a 1 minute rest break in between at my goal half marathon pace, which is about 8 min/miles. Though I may run it a bit slower in two weeks depending on the heat. I did a 1 mile warm up then just as I was getting ready to head into my first interval who shows up in the sky but a crop duster. Oh great, just what I need. So I had to readjust the route I was taking, which was AWAY from him instead of towards.
The first 2 miles felt great, the second two miles I started to get a little hot and on the third I was struggling a little but I held it close to goal pace, okay I stopped for about 15 seconds to try and get the two bugs that flew into the back of my throat out. Yuck

THIS post over at Discovering the Meaning of Stonehenge today. Thanks to her I decided to do one of my intervals with no shirt on. Okay, I was pretty positive no one was going to see me anyway so I felt pretty safe :) It felt really good to run with no shirt, but I don't think I will make a habit of it.
My lil sis sent some Slovenian goodies with the Superhero capes including eucaluyptis gummies, not good, especially before a run. Thought I was going to barf halfway thru my run. Peanut butter flavored puffs- not bad.
Twinki like things shaped like a bear and stuffed with gooey chocolate, these were a big hit with the kids.
My run. Yay! Survived 5 kids that were 5 and under for 5 hours and now am going to make supper!
