Loren and I got a dog on Friday night. This was something I wanted to do for a long time. Smartest thing to do during marathon training? Maybe not. She's not a puppy however, so I think that helps. She's adjusting to her new home, her new roomates (she's taken to the humans just fine, the cats still have her on probation but things are looking really good in that area), and life in the city. She hardly slept at all on Sat night. So I hardly slept. I did my 20 miler yesterday totally exhausted and sleep deprived. But I did it. It was sorta slow, but very steady and it's OVER! And the week that kick my ass last time is OVER and I'm not even bruised by it.
I have 50 on tap for this week. I might push that up a hair. I also have a tune up 15k this weekend. I have to rearrange things cause Pfitz calls for the race on Sat. Man, races are almost never on Sat. So I think I'll long run Fri (17) with the uptown girls and race Sun. I love 15k, I wish there were more races at this distance.
