Who goes for a run at 10:30 a.m. when it starts to get blazing how outside?!?! We do. Hey if I can’t REALLY challenge my body with hills and speed quite yet, I am sure as heck going to challenge it with not the perfect temperatures. I feel good about an overall 7:58 pace. I am getting there slowly but surely!
I fueled for this run with about 20 wheat thins and a handful of dried fruit and I didn’t have any stomach issues and it gave me a TON of energy…….I think I found another winner. As soon as I came home I refueled with CYTOMAX and took Charlie on a 1 mile walk and then stretched.
Our run today was AWESOME!!! We mapped out a route that was UPHILL FIRST and DOWNHILL second….me likey:)
I think this is one of the only times that I have ever had negative splits…..my first half is usually WAY faster than my second half but Billy is making a great little pacer. I will let him have his bag of swedish fish as a reward. I know you are all thinking that I already ate both bags that the MIL gave us but that is not the case, it is okay though….I will just go to target later on today and buy more.
The first 3 miles were up hill and then a little over two miles around my most favorite lake in the whole wide world (besides lake powell) and then back the last three miles. Whenever I go downhill I just want to scream WEEEEEEEE the whole way down but Billy doesn’t let me when I go with him…..I will just have to do this same run by myself in the next little while.
Do you like to start or end with the uphill?!?!
-I LOVE starting with the uphill because the whole time I think about how fun it is going to be to run back down!!
WHAT WAS YOUR WORKOUT!?!?!
