Resume Normal Programming

I think we literally found paradise. No kidding. The trip was awfully long and tiring plus it was raining terribly when we got to the island so all of us were feeling pretty blue but the next day, the aum decided to ahow off and make us feel the heat so we were able to go island hopping and i was kust awestruck at the magnificence of the beaches. Awesome creations of God! I was all to excited and immediately basked in the glorious sun. There were hardly any tourists so we practically had the whole island to ourselves.
Given that, i haven't run in like 5 days. Eeek.  Supposed to be seriously training for my first jalf maratjon. I am resolved on running tomorrow. Reminds me of how important disciplime is.

Off for a quick one

We're on the road, the husband and i together with 2 friends. God is good and has allowed us to go on a 4 day break after a long time. We're hitting the blue sea and powdery sand in a few hours, thank you Lord.
Knowing that we would be away from the running zone for 4 days-although i did bring my shoes and a pair of running shorts just in case- we made it a point to run for 3 days straight since Monday. We started trying speed training using the (unused) airport runway as our training ground. We have been doing mostly hill reps and lsd's. I have realized how different flat pavement running is. It is very tiring and challenging. We'll see how far we go.

What i'm thinking

Slept in today and just really felt the urge to sleep past my usual 5am waking time.Ran 17kms the other day and 16kms yesterday. This running thing has really bit me. I am joining my first half marathon in a month and must train seriously mainyl because i need to beat the cut off time of 2hours and 30mins. This worries me-a lot- because i have done 2 16k races and finished at 2:10 and 2:08. I doubt i will be able to cover the last 5k in 20mins.
So thankful for the long weekend. It truly has been a time of refreshing. god is good!

And just like that..

A whole year has gone by and so many significant things have happened. I do wonder what made me open my blog after this long. Although i did realoze that Facebook is such an inappropriate venue to rant, express oneself thoroughly,etc.
Ladeedahdeedah.This feels rather funny.i dont know where to start!
For starters,the kids have grown,we've moved church and have grown in our faith and the husband and i have started running- a lot.
There,i think i  ready to start over.
