I am finally back from the dead, my cold is gone so I celebrated with an easy 6 mile run/11:45 miles around Diamond Head, Kapiolani Park and Honolulu Zoo. I had a running partner so conversation was good and before I knew it the run was over (unfortunately). I’m still a little upset about missing an entire week of training runs and I can only hope that it won’t prove to be detrimental to my goal of running the March half (Hapalua) near 2 hours. You will not get the best of me you stupid cold! I know I can squeeze in another few miles after work and its Tempo Time tomorrow!
I’ve also just registered for the Great Aloha Run in February (a fun run on an 8.15 mile course) and the Honolulu Marathon in December. I’ll find a 5K for this month and I’m well on my way to running a race every month, that should keep me on track for training.
