My friend Sarah and I decided we was going to get our act together this week and get back to the early a.m. run thing, well it didn't kick in until Wednesday~ Ha! It has just been so dang hot in the afternoons the only time running is half way enjoyable is in the mornings except that is has finally cooled back down to normal temps. And what the heck got into me with doing double runs?? Not too sure but I hope I can keep them up at least a couple times a week. Wednesday I was still feeling fresh and it was nice outside so I asked the hubz to go run that evening. We rewarded ourselves with Orange Leaf afterwards:) LOVE that stuff which is another reason I probably need to keep up the double runs! Thursday after aerobics he convinced me to go run a lap (2mi) around the park, at first I refused telling him I was tired and my legs was tired but the more he asked I finally said "OK But I will be slow and maybe walk some!" Well I was slow alright but didn't walk any and more than likely wasn't as slow as I thought (didn't have the Garmin). Two runs with the hubz in one week~ LOVE IT!! Thank GOODNESS for rest day Friday:) I was really ready for it!
Saturday morning was one of my favorite "Serres" 5k's of all time, it was where it all started for me becoming a runner in 2009, the Beef Festival 5k Stampede in my hometown! They only give awards to the top 3overall male/females so I researched the times from last year to see if I had any chance. It was a nice cool morning and I woke up feeling like I DID have a chance and maybe had a new PR of 23something in me:)
|Can you tell I was giving it my all?|
Sunday morning it was still cool out and knew it was great weather for a nice long run. Once again I didn't really care what my pace was just get out there and run! Thankfully I was able to get in 10mi and at a fairly good pace (9:38 overall). I felt like that was the best long run I've had in a long time, comfortable and relaxed and wanting to just run, I only stopped once for a water break and once at a stoplight for a water break~ Yay me! I think I am going to start making that my minimum of 10mi on my Sunday long runs anything above that will just be awesome!! My next distance race is going to be the Women's Half in Indianapolis on September 1, so if I focus on mastering the 10miles I should have a pretty decent half!
Hope Everyone had a Great Week!! Here's to the start of another one!!
