The previous week I told how my hubz turned into the energizer bunny and took me on a 5mi run, well I took him on one Monday. I hadn't run for 2days and my legs were FRESH and READY to ROLL unfortunate for him, lol! I started out right beside him then got in front of him thinking he was right behind me until I turned to look, he was at least .25 to 1/2mile behind me, oops didn't mean to leave him that far behind:) So I would slow down and wait for him. On our way back to the car he tried to speed up and get the lead on me but I stayed right on his heels and passed him again, one of his friends drove by and said he better speed up:) Bless his heart when we got back to the car he laid down on the sidewalk! Another one of his friends pulled up and asked if he was ok, he replied with "She ran me to death tonight!" Ha! Love It:)))
The next morning I got up for an early morning run and was surprised how well I did. I wasn't really feeling it and told myself to just run how I felt so I was very pleased with the 9:22 overall pace. Then I took a break for the next couple of days I was just tired and didn't feel like running :(
Friday my girls and I spent all day gone from the house getting Jane's (my car) checkup and shopping only to get home for about 45mins before we left again to head out for me to run the 2nd leg of a Trifecta Series I signed up for (can you tell I enjoy series?). OMG it was very warm and I was not ready for such a hot race! It was miserable, I took off way too fast my miles were slower each one, I even had to take about 10 walking steps but when I saw some of the faster people at the front of the pack walking I felt like it was ok for me to as well! The end of this race goes slight uphill ~uggh why do races do that to you? but I just went up it the best I could and didn't worry if I was going to place or not!
|So stinking HOT and READY to FINISH!|
Thirteen and a half hours later I got up to do it all over again except for a 10k this time around. Last year I finished this one in 55:11 so I put a goal on myself of 54 something but wasn't sure since I ran the night before. This was a "Serres" race and my buddy Kelly that I have been pacing/running beside in these races wasn't there so that left me searching who could I pace with? My friend Sarah told me at the start she knew I could finish in 53 something, I told her I would like to keep an 8:50 pace but still didn't feel too confident in myself. About a mile in I quickly found my pacers, more friends I have met through these races:)

Later that evening my oldest daughter graduated from high school~ what an emotional day it was!
