3- direct relationship

So I have found that there is an direct relationship between the amount of work I get done and how busy I am, even though it seems like it SHOULD be an inverse relationship.  ie: When I am working/running very little (this week) I am getting NOTHING done because I am lazy.  When I'm running and working a ton, I'm much more productive and focused!  Alas....

Today, I met up with Mike for an easy 4 miler.  Honestly, this run really helped me.  Mike is so great and encouraging, and it really helped for me to babble to him about my fears/doubts for 32 or so minutes.  I told Mike that I wanted to do easy 8:30 pace, but we ended up running just above 8 min pace.  This was good because it felt really slow, so I'm hoping that is a good sign that my legs are gathering some pep in them.  Another 2 more days of this and I'm *hoping* they are feeling super-strong!

Tomorrow, I just have to make it through a long teaching day and then my pops and I are headed up north!  My mom is already up there, and my sis and bro-in-law are arriving tonite, so it should be a packed, fun, and full house!  I'm ready to get this party started!

Off to pack....
