A Long Run With a Fast Finish
My long run this weekend was weird but good. It was hot out but thanks to cloud cover it didn’t feel bad at all.
My training plan said to do 8 easy miles and then finish with 2 fast miles. I ended up doing 9 easy miles and 2 fast miles. I’m usually really on top of my stats during a run, but somehow an extra mile snuck in there and I didn’t realize it until I got home and plugged in my Garmin.
(Actually I know how it snuck in there…halfway through the first mile I turned around to go home and use the bathroom and then I restarted my Garmin and forgot about the first mile. Stupid bathroom break.)
In all honesty, the first 9 miles felt like they flew by so fast. I literally felt like I was only out there for 30 minutes before I needed to gear up for my hard miles! That kind of run is always nice : )
I’ve never done a long run with a fast finish before. It was HARD but I kind of liked it! I missed my goal pace by 10 seconds on the second hard mile, but I’ll get it next time!
After the run this guy climbed into my lap and we spent the rest of the night on the couch. The best way to spend a Saturday night in my opinion.
Sunday Adam and I took his dad out to the movies and to dinner for Father’s Day. Wish I could have seen my dad but I’m glad we got to celebrate with A’s dad!
We saw the X-Men movie which was pretty good. I like most super hero movies because they always end with the good guy beating the bad guy!
Are you a morning runner, or do you like to get out in the evenings?
Last movie you saw at the theater?
PS: I am really proud of the HEAT and their season this year. The Spurs deserved their win last night and I am actually really happy for Tim Duncan. As a basketball fan I have nothing but respect for him. Onward to next year and getting back to the finals for a FIFTH year in a row! (And no, I don’t think LeBron is leaving Miami this summer!)
