Ran my longest "long run" in many, many months. I had headed out to run 6 miles and ended up running 9 since I felt good. Goal is to continue 8 miles a week as my long run until I can get my base mileage hovering around 35, then step up to 12 miles or so.

Not a bad week, considering I skipped running the first 3 days of the week. I hurt my back running with a jogging stroller Saturday of last week, and have been trying to fix my back since. It was well enough mid-week on to run.

4 mile run - 6:39 last mile

Only ran once last week - spent my afternoons off of work putting up a pergola/gazebo up on our back porch. So, mid-way through this week, I threw running in again - hoping to get up to a better weekly base.

Also, this is the first year in the past 5 years that I didn't run the corporate track meet... wish them well, but feeling a little bummed that I wasn't able to join them.

I've fallen off badly! After a couple months of not running at the beginning of the year, I sporadically ran for several months... sometimes managing no more than 6-10 miles a week. So, my conditioning has dropped while my weight has jumped. I won't be running track with my team this year - and now, I'm ready to get back in the habit. I've been running more consistently for the past couple weeks/months, but still have a long way to go. I'm running on 15 more pounds than I was at this time last year, and my knees and achillies feel it.

This week, I managed to run a decent amount - even ran with a jogging stroller with my youngest daughter.
