St. Jude Training – Week 7

I know…I’m a little late in doing my weekly summary. But, better late than never.

With the temperatures in the 70s to low 80s in the afternoons, it was a perfect week to run.

Was out the door Saturday morning by 5:30 to bang out 18 miles. Was slower than I wanted but I felt like I finished the week strong.

When I got home, Gayle had a bag of ice waiting for me! She is the best. An ice bath was just what I needed.

    The weather on this side of the country has been just about perfect for running as well.

    One of my coworkers was in the Franklin area doing the same thing I was doing in NY and Philly the week prior. Although I enjoyed those cities, I would have loved to had the chance to be in TN.

    Another solid week of training. Save some food at the finish line in Memphis for the rest of us. ;-)

    Fall came to Richmond, too. We’ve had great weather for about 2 weeks now. This morning was the warmest in several days but was still only 61° — Saturday morning, 7:00, it was 50°. Now that’s what I’m talking about! :)

    18 at 9:44 is impressive…you are setting yourself up.

    I’m interested, as we get closer, just what you are hoping to do in Memphis…you have a lot of experience and I’m sure you have thoughts.
