Hello there! How is it Monday already? So much to catch up on. I guess we can start with the run from this morning. Eerie skies awaited me…It rained on me pretty hard during my first warm-up mile, but then cleared up as I picked up the pace! Lucky me.Miles 1-4 at an 8-8:10 pace, 4-6 at a 7:00 pace, and 6-7 at 7:45. Phew!
I think I am still on a high from Saturday’s awesome run.Anthony and I were up bright (well, dark) and early to meet up with the PR Bandits. The group run was scheduled at Stones River Greenway, which is a good 20-minute drive from our house. It required an extra-early wakeup (um, 4:30 am?) but the views were worth it.Anthony and I settled into an 8:15-8:30ish pace with my running buddy Rayna for the first 10 miles or so. Some of the hills slowed us down on the way up.
But thank goodness I wasn’t riding in a wheelchair backwards on the challenging slopes down.Dam.The three of us settled into our own grooves for a while (Anthony flying ahead, me in the middle, Rayna just behind) and then Rayna and Anthony finished up at mile 11.5.
At mile 14.25, I turned around to finish off the last 2.75 miles alone. With a short stop to say hello to the cows.Done!!After last week’s horribly humid long run, I felt like a million bucks this past Saturday. Good route, good company, good weather. What more could a girl ask for.
Flash forward through a shower, power nap, and super-speedy kitchen painting project (round II), and short road trip… to the lake!Anthony and I made it to my parents’ lake house just in time for some dockside lounging with a tiny family member and a tiny beer.I have 1,000 more things to say but like usual, I’m running late. See you tomorrow!
