What to do?
I think I would rather run 4 days a week-- maybe some weeks if I am feeling an injury come on, have the flexibility to drop a run.. Runner friends - how often do you run when training?
Ran with the Saturday Portland Running Company Group Run crew in West Linn last weekend. It was fun meeting some new people and running a new route. Lots of speedy folks!! Luckily, someone took pity on me and ran with me so I didn't get lost. I was nervous to show up not knowing anyone - but am so glad that I did. I was told there people of all speeds that show up and that they usually have a 8:30, a 9:30 and 10:30 pace groups... We were bringing up the rear at a 10 min/mi pace. I ran my long run faster than I normally would, but it didn't feel so bad afterwards - so maybe it was good to be pushed.
www.runoregon.com is a great website if you are looking for other people to run with. I might check out the Lululemon group runs next.... I need a few more training partners that are "my speed."
Ladybug Run updates - working on setting up the non-profit.. I need to find an Accountant who can volunteer to serve on the Board... Secured Champoeg State Park for 8/12 - so am excited about that. Should have our logo in the next week and then the website/Facebook/social media push begins. It's a lot.. but I am trying to look at it in small pieces so that I don't get overwhelmed. I will be happy when I get some of my pieces done that will allow my Race Committee members to be able to be turned loose.
If you’re running a 26-mile marathon, remember that every mile is run one step at a time. If you are writing a book, do it one page at a time. If you’re trying to master a new language, try it one word at a time. There are 365 days in the average year. Divide any project by 365 and you’ll find that no job is all that intimidating.- Charles Swindoll
