Well after a 10 month haitus for blogging I decided that I needed to start again. I do miss it and regret not having my mileage logged over the past year but needed the break to focus on figuring out motherhood plus our computer crashed and only had limited access to one. But I need to start blogging and keeping track of miles and details so I can finally reach my goals. And of course I miss keeping in contact with all my running buddies :)  So here we go again...

Was planning on meeting Amber for an easy run but we both cancelled on each other . I was glued to my bed, the whole weekend of very little sleep caught up to me, not to mention running a marathon.

4 mile walk with the Taylor in the stroller. Calves are pretty tight from UV marathon. Felt good to walk and stretch them out. Its so nice that my little boy loves the stroller and is so content on any walk or run. I guess I taught him young to love it!

Just sat down and figured out my training plan for SG and made my goals. I always have my goal I say out loud and then my secret goal in my head.  It felt good to get a plan together. I definetly did not do that for UV and it showed in how I felt and my performance. I have been in a racing rut that I need to get out of and fast. I think this race was a major wake up call that I cant fudge my way through and need to start putting in the effort thats required. So thats what I am going to do...put in the effort and get my head in the game and finally get that 2 on my finish time!!!
