I'm back home now and running up and down Wolverine Road getting a daily hill workout. Today was kind of brutal with a howling wind and rain. But adding my raincoat seemed to do the trick. I didn't get too wet. I felt really good going up those steepest hills today. I actually think I may be improving. I've been doing my best to incorporate the Chi Running techniques into my workouts. I don't seem to get very sore anymore so I must be doing something right. I still need to speed up but I think that will probably always be the case. I was so tired this morning that I wondered if I would ever drag myself out the door to run. Amazing how much better and how much more awake I feel now that I had a good 5 mile run. I think most of my tiredness is all in my head.
I loved running in the rain.
I have my minimum for my Team In Training fundraising now, but that's just because I finally donated the rest myself. But my goal is to raise enough to end cancer. That's really what all of my running is about. I'm still hoping to raise a lot more than my minimum before I take off to run in New Orleans in February.
Next marathon Athens Greece on November 10th. Looking forward to that one for sure.
