Wow - It has been a week

Wow - I didn't realize it has been a week since I posted last. From seeing my last couple posts you could see part of my busy week. The busy schedule continued through this week and is just now starting to get back to normal.

I have been running, but am still not back up to my weekly mileage that I was used to training up for the half marathon. I will probably not be running the ING Atlanta Half Marathon as I had previously planned. This is mainly due to how my schedule has been messed up. I am not all that concerned as I was not 100% committed anyway.

I need(ed) to run a 10k today or next week at the latest to get a qualifying time so I can get a seeded spot in the Peachtree Road Race coming up on July 4th. The registration comes out in next Sunday's paper so I have to have a qualifying race in and the results back by next Sunday. I skipped the race I was going to do this morning because I really didn't feel like running in the cold 30 degree weather with rain and snow. Yea, I know - what a wimp! I just didn't feel up to it, and then on top of that I would have had to leave home by 5:30 or 6:00 to get to the other side of Atlanta.

I have one last option, there is a 10k next Saturday that is a Peachtree qualifier, and they let the runners hang around after the race to get the results card so they can use it the next day for the qualification. I will be running this race I think, if not I will not get a seeded entry into the Peachtree which would really stink. I know I can get sub 55 which will give me a good seeding, but would love to get sub 50 which is what I am shooting for.

I will be blogging more now - I have just been a bit too busy lately and that was one of the things that just didn't happen.
