|I haven't seen numbers like this in way too long. It's nice to be training seriously again.|
Anyway, Sunday I peeled myself out of bed thirty minutes later than planned and went out for my long run. Last week I had posed the question about how to work my race and long run into the same weekend, and I decided to heed the advice of a fellow runner that basically went something like this: run long after the race; it'll give you practice at running on tired legs.
|My splits were incredibly even.|
This was my second long run during which I wore the fuelbelt (the first being last weekend's 7-miler). It really is super comfortable and I needed the water. Because I was late getting started, it ended up being really warm toward the end of the run.
I took a new route; it was gorgeous and perfect and I was a terrible blogger (but great runner) because I was too into the run to stop and take any pictures. When I run on Christmas morning, I'll be sure to get some...especially if the gator I saw Sunday is out again on Wednesday!
|Ahh...perfect ice bath!|
|NEWS TEAM ASSEMBLE!|
All told, this was a great weekend! I'm trying to use every moment of winter break to its fullest. I'd say it's been successful so far.
How are you spending your days leading up to Christmas and New Years?
How was your weekend?
What's the next movie on your "to watch" list? We need to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and American Hustle!
Awesome job with the mileage! What app are you using to record your distance? I really like that layout. :)ReplyDelete
You actually saw a gator? I've never seen one. I've only been to Florida two times and I don't think I realized that they were so close by....lol. :0
My weekend was insanely busy doing Christmas things, but it was fun.
I really want to see Anchor Man 2! I love all those actors and can only imagine how funny it is!
That pic is from the Daily Mile website screencapped on my phone. Their app is called "electric miles". I use them both!Delete
If you're in FL near a lake, chances are there's a gator nearby. Unfortunately, I didn't see him this morning!
Great, thanks! I'm going to check it out :)Delete
I have never been to a movie w/ table service. Oh my gosh I would love that!ReplyDelete
It was the best!Delete
Awesome long run! I love the idea of using the pool as an ice bath afterwards!ReplyDelete
I really want to see American Hustle. I think Adam and I are going to go tonight.
It definitely took all the work out of icing, plus I got to sit in the sun!Delete
Awesome run! I think it's so great that you did it even after the race! We runners are crazy! I saw American Hustle yesterday for my birthday movie and it was fantastic. I love Jennifer Lawrence, so I might be biased.ReplyDelete
I love her too!!! All her interviews are hilarious and she's super talented.Delete
Great job with your mileage! The 8 miler sounds like so much fun!ReplyDelete
And Happy Holidays :)
It was definitely a good run :)Delete
Yay for your 8 miler girl!!!! :)ReplyDelete
I told Gunshow that I want a pool when we buy a house so I can use it after my long runs :)
I think I may have him convinced!!!!
I am exciting to write my "end of year" post but find it so daunting!!!! lol
Can't wait to read yours! :)
I think I've hopped in the pool a total of 3 times post-run. As hot as it is, I just prefer a shower haha!Delete
