Movin' Right Along...

Movin' right along in search of
good times and good news,
With good friends,
you can't lose,
This could become a habit.

~ The Muppet Movie

Well the week is "moving right along" and I am happy to say that I am definitely over that last nasty cold and back on track with my workouts. I am still kind of winging it a little. With Myrtle Beach Weekend on the horizon, my focus as been on getting some outside bike riding done and getting some running miles in.

I have no PR dreams for the Myrtle Beach Half Marathon. I'd like to at least BEAT my Disney Half time of 3:17 but being sick really took away 2 weeks of training so this is going to be another FUN RUN.

I have decided to take a break from LONG RUNNING for a little while and put the focus back on quality in my running. I want to have some solid 5K & 10K finishes this year. I want to take the walk breaks out of the equation as much as possible. I will probably still have to walk the water stops. It is either WALK the water stops or WEAR the water for the rest of the race, I am that uncoordinated - but that is acceptable in my book. I just want to get back to RUNNING (or JOGGING if you like) the miles in-between.

It's not like the Half Marathon and Marathon Distance are going to disappear anytime it's back to basics for me!

Movin' right along (doog-a-doon, doog-a-doon)

Life is Good! LiveSTRONG!

Hey. I just got back from the Surf City (Half) Marathon. (I've renamed it the 'Soak' City Marathon). 43 degrees, rain, and 30mph winds. I'm such a WHINER!!! WAAAAAAAAA! And my half marathon medal is not nearly as cute as yours.

Good luck on those 5k and 10k's.
