#UnitedinLoveRun We Ran UNITED: a Virtual Run Recap
Saturday, I decided to tackle the same ‘last-Saturday” long run – another12 miler. K was a trooper once again and met be before the usual group meet up time of 6am (we met at 530am, bright and early!) P Funk joined K and I on the 10 mile loop after we did our early 2. The pace was just the same as last week and the conversation just as funny. We even played a little frogger crossing streets and were lectured on the proper behaviors that should be exhibited by ‘experienced runners.’ Meh..sorry coach!
Saturday’s workout: 12 mile run
I’m so happy with these splits! They’re a) consistent with last week and b) consistent with the pace I should be at for long runs by now, yay for progress! My usual long run about 6 months ago was around a 10:15-10:30 pace so I’m pretty stoked! I haven’t done ‘speed drills’ in a couple of months because I’m not training for any races coming up super soon and I didn’t want to push it with the increase in mileage causing some aches here and there (hip, glute, foot cyst, lovely!) Glad to see I’m trekkin’ forward!
I even brought some home for Gar
Confession: I had to [duh] stop at the run store and treat myself to some new digs, too, but only because I got some extra flow for selling wedding stuff this week, cha ching!
New Nike hat & shorts!
Usually I don’t like running shorts because they ride up on me like no one’s business, but Nike has these new Tempo shorts with a wider waist band that I wanted to try out…most likely on tomorrow’s recovery run 😉 I usually always wear Nike hats when I run because they fit so well, have the great Dry Fit material, and are light-weight.
I am cramming in some more Olympic action, as it is making its departure tomorrow (sad face.) Hubs has enjoyed the arrival of cable in the household watching Cold case files & Disappeared…really? I have no right to judge, though, because I’ve been busted watching various other [crap] t.v. lately like Storage Wars, Taboo, and Cheaters….I need an intervention, I know.
OH! And these below shenanigans are happening tomorrow, just sayin’.. stay tuned for the recap
