Better late than never on this!

As I've said the last couple of months, I know that my mileage will be far less this year than last because I am not training for a marathon.  Indeed, I ran twice as much in 2009 than in 2010!  I also took a week off after Philadelphia, which I don't think I did last year.  Hey, I deserved a break, and I was sick with a cold!

So, overall this was an OK month.  Philadelphia was disappointing, and I continued to fight motivation problems and the heat.  It just wouldn't cool down!!  I am training for a 10K, and that is going very easily thus far.  I do feel slightly lazy though.  I started my STS weight training the week after Philadelphia, but couldn't keep up with it because I caught a cold and I've been so busy.  As is usually the case, my biggest problem is that I can't seem to get out of bed early enough in the morning.

Last night's run was the best run I've had in months, and the temperature made all the difference!  It was more like 50-60 degrees, perfect running weather.  For once, I felt GREAT.  I'm looking forward to fall.

Nothing better than fall to get the running juices flowing again!

I like how you compare your months with the same month in the previous year. I do something similar but I don't have that kind of detail (like pace and time running).
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I didn't know Salisbury had a zoo either until my brother told me that's where they were having the party. It was a really nice zoo- free and you don't have to walk a mile to get to the animals (like in Baltimore). They are even having a "Night of the Living Zoo" event for Halloween in a week and a half.
