Monday: Rest day.
Tuesday: 5 easy miles with melly. This was her first run back since the race and my third. My legs are starting to have life again, and it feels great! What doesn't feel great is getting back into the groove of getting up at 4 am. URGH. I do love the alone time and the time to get stuff done around the house, but pass the caffeine! My body sure was loving the extra 3 hours of sleep every day. Funny story. SO there is a river near our rural road we run on. We can hear air boats and geese down there at times. We were running and heard what sounded like a whole ton of geese taking off from the river. It was so loud that we stopped running and realized, that wasn't the sound of geese, but the sound of a HUGE pack of coyotes! We picked up the pace considerably, and then a pack on the other side of us starting answering. Holy moly there were a ton of coyotes in both packs, and we were surrounded!!!!! Let's just say we ran with purpose the whole way home!

Wednesday: My parents rolled in to town to take Andrew to the pumpkin patch, and to hang out with us this week. I had planned on doing something, but we ended up just hanging out and eating. There will be much eating when they are here, and I will probably gain back all the weight I have lost lately.
Thursday: Planned 5 miles post work. Melly and I headed out to run in her hood and get some hills in. My legs are really starting to feel like normal finally!

Friday: We all split up and went separate ways. I went to KSU with stella for her recheck and to my chiro for my recheck, and mom and my step dad headed to the pumpkin patch with Andrew. I will write a separate post about Stella, but basically KSU has changed their minds and they do think she is in full blown IMPA again. She is going to go back on high dose steroid AND cyclosporine, which I quickly found out is very expensive. I am super upset, as I have already borrowed money once and now am loading up my credit card, but her health is more important than anything else right now. Even though it was raining lightly, I think Andrew had a ton of fun with grammy and granddaddy.
Saturday: Planned 5 miles. What a day. First, we got up early and loaded up to head to Marysville to see a real steam engine.
