Catch up on the week.

Sorry I have not been posting too much this week. I will try to catch you up on my week.
Sunday, I joined Chad and went to Lifetime Fitness for an upper body workout. I was able to keep up with him (for the most part), OK, he lifts more weight than I do. I figure I better disclose this, or he will in the reply to this post. I did not go running this past weekend, after Friday's seven miles, my feet were hurting on the top of them go figure.
Monday, I did run 4 miles:
mile 1 - 12:06
mile 2 - 12:08
mile 3 - 12:21
mile 4 - 12:04

Wednesday I ran the first annual my5K run. The race director was fantastic, and the course was well marked, just where I would have put the course. There was cheering sections throughout the race, even a police escort for part of the run, until he turned on a street. I was able to capture the first pace trophy with an amazing time of 30:20. The trophy that I was presented was a dish towel and allowed into the kitchen to do dishes :( I was hoping they would have been done while I was out.
5K race pace
mile 1 - 9:10
mile 2 - 9:46
mile 3 - 10:18
mile .11 - 1:06

Today, I was asked to give a presentation at the city's welness meeting on my weight loss and exercise routine. The problem is that it was during my lunchtime run. So, since the presentation was 3 miles away at the library, I ran there and gave the presentation and ran back to the office.
Six miles:
mile 1 - 10:30
mile 2 - 10:58
mile 3 - 10:40
Hour and 1/2 meeting
mile 4 - 10:25
mile 5 - 10:28
mile 6 - 10:50

This afternoon, I am going to Road Runner Sports to get a couple new pairs of shoes. Mine have had its better days.

Look at all that mileage!! You are getting smoking fast budddy! Great job! I grew up hanging out at that library. Of course in those days it was across where the museum is now but anyway.

No freaking way, you ran to the presentation? That is just crazy awesome. Were you sweating like a dog? They probably all thought you were awesome. I'm trying to remember what city out there just got the big wellness award for their program. I'll have to think about it.

Anyway, you should be so proud to be their poster child. I would be over the moon to be asked for something like that. Hope it went well. Are you going to share some of your talk and words of wisdom? I think you totally should.

What do you mean thanks for the advice, I'm a beginner? I get most of my advice from you.

BTW, I have to figure out what is going on, my reader didn't get your feed...

Anywho, great work, pat yourself on the back for being asked, for the successes and for putting that talk in the middle of a run. YOU ROCK!!

I think it's great that you RAN to and from your wellness presentation -- what a great way to practice what you preach!

So awesome to see you progressing and sooo fast.

That's a cool way to get in a six miler :-) I guess you were dressed appropriately for the meeting as well!!
