So at about the 2 mile mark of the run the watch beeped and my running buddy checked to see what are splits were....I just knew it was going to be a 10 minute mile or better. And at that moment she broke my heart. All I hear is, "We are a minute off pace."
What?!?!?!?! I'm telling you we were just flying, wind blowing through my hair, chariots of fire theme song in the back ground, and we were a minute slower than most days. A minute is a long time! I just couldn't believe it. Any way, I guess we were a little bit slow today but it sure felt fast.
About the last half mile of the run it decided to rain again, so after having a week off because of the rain, this week I have successfully run twice in the rain, but I am better prepared now....I GOT A HAT! Problem solved!
The rest of my day has been full of more house cleaning getting ready for a party, rearranging furniture, and WORK! Sometimes that work stuff really can get in the way, but today has been a good productive work day so I cannot complain. Praise that I have a job where I don't have to be stuck behind a desk for 14 hours a day....I may work a 14 hour day but I at least get to be on the move a little bit.
I have no more workouts planned for today and I am hopefully going to get a 5 miler in tomorrow so for the first time in a long time (maybe a first time ever) I will finish the week off with 30 miles. That number is just going to get bigger, but since I am fired up about running right now and pretty sure it is not going to ruin my life, I cannot wait.
And next weekend I am officially signed up for my second half-marathon. Remember back when I finished the first one I was not sure I would ever do that again and now I am going to run my second Half and then just for good Marathon training tack on another 5-7 miles after the race is over. I couldn't even walk back to my car after the first one was over....what a difference a few months make.
Hope y'all are all having as good of a
