My office is still at their temporary location. The dates to move back to the old office keep getting pushed back. Here's a few pics of my temporary digs:

Anyway, I've been trying to run a little more. I have that Columbus Half Marathon in May that I have to work up to. I normally don't have a big run like that so early in the running season.
But I've been doing great on my runs this week!
Wednesday, I had an unplanned run due to a dinner cancellation with a friend. I decided to do a 10k. Since I have that wonderful Garmin Forerunner 305 (which I love, by the way!), I can schedule it for me to do a 10k! I love that. No guessing how far I'm running.
And I ran that 10k (6.22 miles) in 1:00:38 for an average pace of 9.45 mins/mile! Whoa!! Really??? That's my best pace ever! And for a run of over 6 miles? Well, I was elated! I was happy the entire rest of the evening! It helped that the weather was warmer Wednesday and Thursday too.
I had run plans for Thursday with Nick but he couldn't make it. I decided to try to go for a short run even though I really wasn't feeling it after the prior day's run. So I did a 5k (3.11 miles). I did good for this run too but since it was a shorter distance, I wasn't as thrilled as the other one. I was still happy about it but, well, you know.
Now, I was trying to figure out if I should run today. It's going to be the last really nice day for at least a week. It's going to be rainy and going to get colder later in the week. That made up my mind.
After my weight watcher meeting (and my gain, cry, cry!), I decided to go for a 5 mile run. I wasn't sure how this run would go because I'm kind of beat from the 10k and 5k in back to back days. I decided to try anyway.
I ran 5 miles today, in 47:43 mins with an average pace of 9.33 mins/mile! Uh what?? Is my Garmin broken?? I seriously did that!

Now I have the Shamrock Shuffle in a few weeks. If I keep the pace of today's run, I'll definitely beat my old times.
Now, the only thing I need to get in check is my eating. I'm starting over again today. The 1000th time is a charm, right!?! Tracking...check! I can do it. I need to stop gaining weight every single week! I've gained about 15 lbs! Enough is enough!
