My Long Run Amused Me : )
I made it through the weekend alive! LeBron took his talents away from South Beach, Adam’s mom has been in town visiting and I was so, so, so overtired from all the events of last week, but I survived : )
On Saturday night this party animal actually went to bed at 8PM!
I didn’t get my long run in until Sunday late afternoon. On the schedule was 12 miles, 10 easy and 2 fast finish.
It rained earlier in the day on Sunday and was super hot + humid, so I started my run on the treadmill and finished up outdoors once the weather was more manageable.
That turned out to be a much better combination than starting outdoors and then running on the treadmill which I attempted to do last week. Going from super hot to cold is just not good for me.
I couldn’t help but feel amused at how easy 12 miles seems these days. When did that happen?!
I’m not even really intimidated by the fast finish miles anymore!
The countdown to Portland is on… and I’m feeling pretty confident that I’m at least going to make it to the end in one piece!
My achilles is being stubborn. It’s still a bit tight, though a lot less than it was last week.
On Friday I went on a bit of a shopping spree on the Brooks website (I think new shoes will help with the achilles).
My new shoes, along with a bunch of other things, will be arriving today! I can’t wait to get home from work and unpack my box!!!
That’s what you do when LeBron James breaks up with your team, you go shopping.
Okay, and now as promised, I am going to share the winner of the Hardrock 100 in case you weren’t following along this weekend.
No surprise at all, the winner was Kilian who set a new course record by completing the run (which includes 67,984 feet total elevation change) in 22:41:33. CRAZY!!! Kilian is unreal.
Julien Chorier, came in second, with a time of 25:07. So yeah, Kilian pretty much killed the course.
And that was my weekend!
Oh, and Adam, his mom and I also went to see the Planet of the Apes movie. I thought the story was good, but I was annoyed by the ape sounds.
Not sure what I was expecting to hear, hah!
What was the last movie you saw in the theater? Any recommendations?
Are you using a countdown app for your next big race?
