5 More Weeks to Go!

Run Distance: 4 miles

I only have 5 more weeks until my half marathon...yikes! I ran into my old boss yesterday, whom I'd asked to run this half marathon with me, and she pointed out that the course was "too hilly". Somehow in all of the descriptions that I read, I missed the "hilly" portion. So...I went on a search yesterday afternoon and found that dreaded word. So now I am not only running the hilly Kansas City Marathon course, but also a hilly half marathon course. Blah!! What did I get myself into? Oh how I hate hills!!

I've decided to shuffle my runs up this week due to the busy weekend. I'm scheduled to run 5 runs including 3 miles, 10 miles, 3 miles, 6 mile tempo, and 4 miles. So...I hit the 4 mile yesterday because I didn't know yet what I was going to do about those 3 milers and I just got done running 10 the other day. So I think I'm going to double up my 3 milers and do a 6 on Thursday so that I can just get them out of the way. As nice as a 3 miler looks right about now, I don't have time to devote that extra day to finding a running spot in Kansas City.

Oh and I now have finally joined the I-Pod with music club. Although very little of it is my music and is instead my old roomie's music because I have yet to re-load mine on the computer after a fatal computer issue. You would think I-Tunes would come up with an easier way to recover all of your music after your computer dies. Anyhow, I also uploaded my runs but for some reason all of June's runs are missing out of my I-Pod. I don't know what to do about that whole issue. Hopefully I'll figure it all out soon.

When I read that you had 2 3 milers scheduled, I totally thought, "why doesn't she just double up and get them out of the way in one day?" then I read on to see that is exactly what you did! Good idea! :) I don't like to waste my time with anything 3 miles and under. I think its better for your body too. You get an extra rest day to recover. Good job!

If I remember correctly Chris had some issues with a run missing from his iPod and he managed to solve it, maybe you can ask him how to fix this.
