Today the sun came out!! Hooray!!
I had to spend the day inside at the office and didn’t even get out for lunch! We ended up having a meeting over lunch. It was another long long day. However I shut down the computer at 5 and left because I was dying to get outside for a run!
I got to the running store right at 6 and they were about to leave but they waited for me! We headed up along the Lake today and I am still only at 3 miles for my week-day runs. One of my friends who is a CRA-ZY amazing runner wanted to hang with me because she ran Ragnar on Fri/Sat and then a full Marathon on Sunday. 3 easy miles was fine for her! We ended up running with the Eric as well and had fun chatting. I was fine on the way out, but on the way back the heat and speed (<10 min pace – fast for me right now!) got to me. I ended up having to walk a couple of times. I didn’t do the 5:1 thing, but really focused on my gait and trying to be more even! It totally worked! I didn’t have any soreness!
I wore my new visor – the only one I could find that would fit my small head! It is a Brooks Visor. I don’t really wear hats for running. I wear them otherwise though! Since it was sunny I threw on some old sun glasses. I really need to find some good ones, but don’t want to drop $$$$ on a sports pair!
Since this week has been so busy, we have been lazy. I stopped at Jimmy Johns for dinner. It was very YUM!
Hope you got to enjoy your sunny summer day!
