They were all part of my week…
1. I skipped Monday’s hill repeats since it was the day after the half. Recap HERE.
2. Tuesday, on the advice of my PT, I did not make up the hill repeats and rested as scheduled.

weeks ago, to their Facebook wall.

3. Wednesday morning before work, I had an awesome fast run: 5 miles with an average pace of 8:38. The last mile should’ve been slower than an 8:15 pace, but a coyote popped out on the Cedar River Trail and I ran as fast as I could without hurting myself back to the car. Read about that run HERE.
4. Thursday…I don’t have words. One of my Top 10 worst days ever. Even a 4-mile nighttime sanity run did not help. I did hit below my goal pace for the two middle miles without much problem — even seemed easy on the flat straightaways. You know what’s not easy? Potty training little boys. Read more about that run HERE.
5. My friend, who has a son with autism, sent me this run that sounds AWESOME! It is called The Amazing Race to Understand Autism. Let’s just say you need running shoes, a camera, a phone and a buddy. Check it out HERE if you live in the Seattle area.
That sounds like quite the week!! I am trying to potty train my daughter…not fun!I feel like I am constantly talking about poop or pee!
What a week! Love the PT pic and that race does sound awesome!!!!!
what do they have in common….all very SCARY!!!!
If you figure out potty training little boys, please share. We are in potty training hell over here!
Very busy week!! Especially with all the animal encounters you have had. You may want to run with a stick!!!
Your legs look so strong in that pic!
I would be 100% completely lost if I had to try and potty train a boy. Good luck!! Have a fantastic weekend!
We've given up on potty training. She's almost 3 and fighting tooth and nail. Its not worth it. I told her to tell me when SHE is ready and stopped talking about it 😉 I feel ya!
Kerrie, I've been wanting to let you know how inspired I was by your marathon success! Loved the recap and the pics…you looked so happy and strong.I've recently been trying to decide whether I could finally run my first marathon and I was feeling strong, until I started experiencing knee pain once again. I took it easy and decided to run a 5/1 ratio during all my training runs and my knee is doing great. Knowing you ran your marathon with a 5/1 ratio and did so great, I decided to register and hope to complete that marathon in September. Yesterday was a long run, I used the 5/1 ratio and I felt great! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂
Thanks, Anne! Glad it is working for you!
Argh! Great pic of you in PT Action!! You're famous!!So sorry about the Potty Training. He'll get it, I'm sure. And the coyote!? YIKES! off to read about that!!
