EDIT: I am SO happy to report that I calcuated my totaly inaccurately for this week. Serpents is 4 miles round trip so if I did it 1 and 1/2 times then I really ran 6 miles soooo.... that means I really did run 10 miles!!!!
Well my total for this week fell a bit short... only 9 miles instead of my goal of 10. I know it seems a bit silly and I could have gotten out and ran that one mile to make my goal. BUT (and this is a big but...) my every waking moment was spent remodeling the bathroom during Spring Break (pics to come later). So I am happy to report that amidst all of the demolition, wall removal, wall building, tile laying, pipe moving, and painting I did manage to squeeze in 9 miles- oh! and a 4 mile bike ride too!
On Wednesday I went on a 4 mile run through some feather like flakes and shining sun, it was as close to a heavenly run as I have ever had.
Sunday I headed to the Monument for a run up Serpent's Trail. I haven't run Serpent's since the end of last summer, and I knew I was in for a butt woopin'. Man was I right! I could barely make it up half way before I had to stop running and hike for a few. We only ran up it 1 and 1/2 times, but it was plenty for our first meeting of the season. My toosh was sore for several days, which I felt with every squat during the bathroom remodeling. (I am headed there again next Sunday, hopefully it will be a better outcome for me.)
I also took the kids for a 4 mile bike ride during the week, towing Maddox on his little trail-behind-bike. But that doesn't count for running miles!
