From my mouth to Gods ears...
I haven't RUN 10 miles since the half marathon program. I haven't run 10 miles since the Half Marathon! That was March 1st! LOL. I was a little worried. I didn't sleep much but I tried to rest and not to think about things I have no power over, although that is easier said than done.
I got up at 6:15, ate a banana folded some laundry (so I would actually have something to wear)Grabbed my GU and water bottle and was ready to run by 7:15. I did a half mile or so warm up, stretched then put my head down and kept Liz and Vicki in my sights for the first few miles. My pace was supposed to be 10:30-10:45 a mile. I was running with the fast girls and landed a little fast at the 10:31/mile pace overall. I felt good and feel good now. Next week though...12miles.
I spend those miles thinking and praying. I've been doing that a lot. Thinking through things I can't seem to figure out, have no power over, don't know how I can make it better, mulling them around a bit, waiting for answers that are impossible for me to answer on my own and giving them away to a Higher Power. My church today was a 10 mile run.
I guess things are working out, maybe not for the best but calmed down for the moment so I need not worry the way I did last night. On top of all the other things going through my head my sister calls to say that her friend was bit by something and was headed to the hospital because she was having a severe allergic reaction. Upon inspection it appears to be a bite from a Fire Ant. I'm glad she's doing better today after some medical treatment and some pre-emptive Benadryl in her purse in case it happens again, she's home. That girl lives in Oklahoma, she needs some BIG ASS BUG SPRAY before she goes to any more football games.
