This week has just been crazy busy. I'm so backed up with my google reader that I'm scared to check it.
But, I did get a few runs on. This past Sunday, I was able to make it out to Steven's Creek Trail, in Mountain View, for a run. I got up relatively early and make it out there for a 6 mile run. This was the longest I ran since the SV marathon. I felt good. I ran it at an 8:29 pace. I'm not sure I could have kept that pace up if I went longer. If I went at a slower pace, I think I could have done 8/9 miles. I was sad to learn that later that same day on that same Trail, a women was attacked. Fortunately, she was able to get away. Be careful out there.
I planned to get three runs in during the week, but work has just been keeping me tied up. Besides the regular work, I have an article that I wanted to get done yesterday (it is due soon). So far I have not had time to start it. I'm hoping to find time in the next day or two. But, I did get a short 3.1 mile run in on Tuesday. I wanted to get another run in Thursday morning. I was up late on Wed night trying to get work done (until about 1:30am) and I wanted to get up at 6:20 to get out there by 6:30-6:40 am and do a short 3 mile run. The alarm did go off at 6:20am. But, I did not get up. :( I finally got up about 7am, but then had to get ready for work and in the office. I was able to get in a 3.4 mile run tonight on the treadmill. Running on the treadmill is just not the same (I did run at 11pm so was able to watch a rerun of Seinfeld.
Some people from my running group were planning to get together for a 10/12 mile trail run on Sat. I was really looking forward to going. Then, I realized I have a baby CPR class in the morning so I have to miss it. :( I was a bit unsure if I should increase my mileage so much this soon so maybe it is for the best that I cannot attend. Instead, I'm going to try go for a 7 or 8 mile run this weekend.
