Let's start at the very beginning, a very good place to start

"Scattered Thunderstorms" scared me away from calibrating the new gizmo and hitting the roads. And, of course, it never rained at the house and I watered and watered and watered tonight. I do have to say that the air is so humid, if I had run outside I imagine that it would have been similar to running in a sauna...so here are the numbers from the treadmill.

Yea, this resembles numbers from a while time ago:

Mile 1: 12:18 ave hr 139
Mile 2: 11:30 ave hr 164
Mile 3: 12:33 ave hr 171

Wanted to get 3 in 36...not quite there. I dropped my pace in the 3rd mile with the purposee of lowering my heart rate. I have to say that I got really distracted and all good intentions went out the window! The treadmills face the racquetball courts and there was an INTENSE game going on and it was quite entertaining... and distracting! I think my high heart rate was in part due to the fact that I was really routing on this one player, the under dog of course, who prevailed in the end. I think I actually audibly cheered!

Not really happy with the way the knees were feeling at the end either. I wanted to do a long run Thursday and I am thinking that I should continue to chill...which makes my knees happy but my mind scared!

My baby Koz is sick again - have to take him to the vet tomorrow morning!

Loving the book "Eat, Pray, Love" I am not even 1/3 of the way in and I would tell anyone to go grab it as soon as you get a chance!

Take Care

RE - a drop of golden sun
MI - a name, I call myself
FA - a long long way to run
(the best movie EVER)

I am sorry your baby is sick! Doesn't it break your heart? I admire all the running you do. I think I have sports induced asthma because whenever I run I feel like my throat caves in and I can't breathe. So I HATE running! But I think its a cool hobby and I envy runners that find joy in it. Keep it up!

This doesn't have anything to do with your post, but you should hop on over to Athena Diaries (link on my blog) and help Misty out with her graduate research. I think your experience with the psych meds and running would be of great interest to her.

Hope your puppeh feels better soon!!! :)
