I am truly relieved that this weekend contains no, I repeat, no racing for me. :) I DO love to run, but I am honestly looking forward to a weekend of easy training runs and not rushing to a start line of any race. I say that because I actually dreamt last night that I was running the Blue Nose full marathon and was down near the expo in a swarmed crowd of people unable to get to the start line....which I wasn't even sure of the start time...LOL. As I woke up I could still feel the panic in my body from the dream that felt super real.
Who else has dreams related to being late for a race?
My Wednesday evening run was a scheduled 8 miler. It was very super warm that day and humid still at night. As you can clearly see I wore my reflective vest again. :) During the first mile I immediately regretted wearing a t-shirt as opposed to a tank top......hot!
I was determined to make chilli that night for dinner so I chopped veggies in my running gear. I like to call this "The Multi-tasking Runner." :D

The Face <3 that welcomed me home......somewhat....lol.
The Chilli :D
I piled in loads of beans, chick peas, bell peppers, tomatoes, celery, onions and garlic along with some extra lean beef. Add a few spices and some sauce and Voila! It made tons but was super tasty!
A very tough 5 miler tonight. I was super tired and my legs were toast! I prevailed though and got it done. :)
5 stale miles....lol
7:45 Avg. Pace/mile
I was annoyed at my run so I made myself plank when I got in. I made it for a whopping 2 min 27 sec....yes that it sarcasm! LOL.
and of course I welcomed........
With a glorious rest day. :)
I hope you're having a fabulous weekend and are enjoying some mile time on the roads. If you have been looking for my formerly known as "Mile Counter," I have sad news that the text gadget where I'd been storing my miles virtually is no longer working for some reason that I haven't figured out. If you are curious about my mileage for the month and year you can check on my home page underneath the page "Smiley Miles."
Thanks for stoppin' in.
