as for the husband for "sale" on craigslist, i am merely subscribed to the local craigslist free stuffs and furniture by owner in case a good deal pops up. sorry to disappoint.

so after my three good weeks and a cutback week, apparently my body/mind were still in cutback mode and i had a pretty slack week. i learned i need to continue to declare my 30-min/day rule. i thought i'd stick to it without officially listing it on my monthly goals but apparently that's not good enough.
as for my tempo attempt - i averaged an 8:18... a solid 30 seconds slower than what i should be doing (and have done recently on other runs). i don't know if it was because it was my first non-easy run in cold weather since last winter (43*, but my asthma acts up in cool weather) or if i was being cautious in the dark.

oops. i wasn't supposed to hit 40 miles for another week or so. on saturday's short 'n easy run i got the stink eye from a runner girl who was overdressed; it was 37* and i was in shorts and longsleeve shirt. i'd illustrate that but i wasn't quite sure how to portray the stink eye via paint.
on friday i decided to run errands since my legs were a little achy from thursday's run-mute. i stopped at the post office and walmart. it was alright until the last mile when i started to get annoyed at carrying my bag.
