View SAXONHARP's food & exercise for this day

It has been way too long since my last blog. Finally crazy work travel is over and today is the last day of school for my daughters. Life should be a little more reasonable right now.

Clara is doing much better. She has been seeing a therapist and it is definately helping but we are only in the begining of helping her feel better. At least she is coming to me for help and I do see her smiling more. Whew.....

I am ready to get back into better shape again. I am doing OK. I have at least maintained my small weight loss, even with all the travel and stress. I am staying between 228-229! I will take that. This week I am consistantly logging again and it feels great.

It is summer and speed work started a couple weeks ago. It is funny a lot of the gals from training team are coming to speed work and thought I was going to coach it!!!! That would be a NO! But I am getting better at it. My first year I was always in the back of the pack. Last year I was in the middle of the pack. THis year I am kind of in the front 1/4. It is nice to see that progess. Tuesday we did 800s and I hit my assigned goal times and was happy with how I felt.

Set 1, .52 mi, 4:46 (I did not do the splits right on this one)
Set 2, .52 mi, 4:42 (2:22/2:19)
Set 3, .52 mi, 4:47 (2:26/2:21)
Set 4, .52 mi, 4:42 (2:24/2:17)

This summer I am doing 2 5Ks and a couple of 1 mile time trials. It is nice having a break from all the long distance running. BUT in mid July training team starts again and they have asked me to be a pace coach again.

Hopefully it will not be so long between blogs for me!!! I need to stay connected!!!!

Glad to hear that Clara is doing better and that life is calming down a little for you.

Nice job on the speed work! :y: I'm jealous of your break from the distance running. I told my husband the other day that after the Goofy I seriously need a break...we'll see if I stick to that. =D

glad to hear your daughter is doing better. I can't imagine how scared you were.

I honestly have no idea how you run in the heat. I have a lot of treadmill and early morning runs planned this summer. Now all I have to do is actually stick to that plan.
