Last night’s run was another really good one! In May the weather got really hot here in south Florida and my pace started to suffer a little bit. It was kind of bumming me out a bit even though I know it’s not a big deal.
Last night it was only 80 degrees and I was able to pick up my pace a good 30 seconds per mile with ease! Now if only it could be cloudy every day for the rest of the summer…
After the run I got in some chest, shoulders and back work at the gym to cap off the night on a really good note.
Adam tried to make me do an unassisted pull up, but it’s just not going to happen. He says he knows I can do it, I just have to believe… hah! I don’t know about that. One day I will do it. I just don’t think it will be anytime soon!
Did you see what Runner’s World posted to Instagram over the weekend? Harriette Thompson, 91, finished her 15th marathon on Sunday setting a new US age group record in 7:07:42 at Rock N Roll San Diego! That’s 16:19 minutes/mile pace.
I think Harriette looks quite young and full of life in the picture. I really hope my legs still want to carry me over that kind of distance when I’m in my 90s!
NBC Chicago interviewed Harriette and she told them, “my favorite part is at the end when I get over the finish line. That’s the best part!” Love it!
I hope to still be running at 91, and to be able to do a pull up.
Can you do pullups? How many in a row can you do?
