I couldn't find my Garmin this morning.  Bummer because it felt like a great run.  I'm pretty sure I was cruising along at under 8 min. miles.  My daughter had put it on the book shelf so that the baby wouldn't get hold of it.

I wanted a nice easy run today.  So I took Ginger.  She did really good.  I haven't taken her forever.  When I used to go with her I would try to train her by telling her left or right at the turns.  It seems like she was remembering the commands, but maybe she was just getting lucky. 

Time - 24:13 (avg. pace 8:21)

Splits - 8:27, 8:22, 8:14

I was kind of letting her dictate the pace.  So much for easy.

I didn't run yesterday because my right foot was hurting.  It felt better today.  I wanted to get a long run in, but I got up way late.  I did my crazy attempt at mile intervals instead.  Oh, before that I did my 50 sit-ups, 10 push-ups, 2 sets of planks for as long as I could, some side planks (thanks Coach Cara), and I almost did a full pull-up.  Woo-hoo!

I did my favorite run again this morning up Usury Pass with some of my Ragnar team.  It was about 4:15 minutes slower than last time but felt like the same effort.  That must have to do with the speed work I did yesterday.  Before the run I did 50 sit-ups, 10 push-ups, planks, side planks, and almost a pull-up.

There were so many cyclists out this morning.  I couldn't believe how many there were.  I should have counted them.  It would have been funner than counting prairie dogs.  I know some of them were the same people I saw going up and coming back down.  That's one of the things that makes this run so cool.
