Wasted time = miles Lost

The ten minutes I wasted in front of the computer is what I'd needed to do the 9 miles that was on schedule for today. I just could not squeezed it in because I had to take my older son to football practice. Then rush back and get ready for the job. I had no choice but to settle for the 8.03 that I completed . If it counts for anything I went to XC tonight. Hubby was off so he took the younger son to football practice. I've been lucky the last week and some having been able to go to both XC and the Track on Wednesday. I'm thankful and glad. I know it won't last forever but I'm enjoying and taking advantage while I can. If it counts for anything tonight's theme was the 3 person Ekiden Relay the first leg 1K, second 3K and third was 2k, the one that I did. I did not time it. But I did run the fastest I've ran in a while our team finish close to 29 minutes for the 6K.
I finally remember to turn my timer about .25 mile into my run I was going about 7:38, I kept hearing lots of feet behind me chasing me down. Nice tactic to use my next race :)

Cool team race format. I've never heard of it before. Thanks for sharing. Hope that the rest of your week goes as well. Don't sweat missing a mile. It's how you feel that counts.
