I'm loving getting my daily dose of Vitamin D. At about 11 am I go look for Bubbles. She always knows the best, sunniest spot. She looks at me with her sad eyes cause she knows she's going to get pushed into a not-so-warm spot. I strip down to my camisole and just bask (while reading a running magazine and dreaming of future glory). And the best part is that I feel justified in being a bit lazy because I'm just getting my vitamins.
The only down-side is that the sunniest part of our house is on the front patio and yesterday I was caught out there half-dressed. Admittedly it was only by my Mother but I must have looked a guilty sight - jumping up from the tiles and quickly re-dressing. She was probably wondering where I'd hidden the pool boy.
I've had to do a little negotiation with Coach Chris about this month's training schedule. I have the Brisbane Half Marathon in 5 weeks and haven't really been doing many long runs in the 20k range. He had me down for only 2 X 20k runs in the next four weeks so we've negotiated that up to 4 X 20k runs. At least I won't feel totally under-prepared in a month's time. The Brisbane Half will NOT be a race. It's just going to be a focused training run where I get a medal and a running singlet at the end. The end goal is to do the full marathon in Melbourne so all my runs and events will be geared to that goal.
Time now to find where the best sun is this morning. Shove over Bubbles! I'm on my way.
