Thanks for all of the prayers. My grandmother had her first radiation treatment yesterday and from what I've been told, everything went well.
Alot of ya'll have asked how I like Happy (the Garmin) so far. I love it! So far, I've used it on our 10 mile bike ride on Saturday, our 4 mile run on Sunday, and our 2 mile run last night. I even used the heart monitor on Sunday. My heart rate got up to 188 and stayed there for quite a while. I'm not sure if that's normal or not, I'm about to Google it and see. Btw, if it's not normal, just know that I do have heart problems - nothing new.
Anyways, I had full intentions of putting some of my runs on here in nice little splits and graphs, but have found myself too completely exhausted to do so. Last night, I did look at my splits and they're horrible. As in, the first mile I ran a 12:29 and then the second a 14:01. But, I will say that I somehow hurt my hip after the first mile. So, I'm blaming that. LOL I think I just didn't stretch my hip flexor well enough. I'm definitely feeling it today.
Tonight calls for 3 miles. If I can walk like a normal person, then we'll run the 3 miles. If not, we'll figure something else out.
The 5k is this Saturday. I'm pretty excited. I looked up my '07 & '08 results and they weren't pretty, so I'm pretty excited about beating those times and possibly.. coming in around 38-39 minutes. That's my goal (yes, I'm slow), so we shall see!!
