Friday, May 14

Another week. Another impromptu 9.65 mile run?!

Yeah, I went for about 10miles with Ann on Tuesday.  She’s training for her half on May 23rd.  I’m running the 5k that day, and then a 10k later on for the virtual 10k/half by Running with Babes.  Then I’m going to be cheering Ann on!  yay!  Should be a fun and running filled day.  Hopefully the weather’s nice. 

Anyways, Ann is training for her half and decided she’d better get her long runs in.  So I said I’d jump in for 5miles.  Then I looked around at all the housework calling my name and thought, “Nah, I’ve got nothing else to do, I’ll do the 10 with you, should only take 2 hours out of my day right?”.  Yeah.  That’s me, I’ll think of any excuse not to put away laundry.  Don’t get me wrong, I love doing laundry and having clean clothes, but putting it away…takes me a few minutes and a lot of encouragement. 

Break down by miles and pictures:

Mile:

  1. 12:55 (walk break to talk to gramma)
  2. 12:14
  3. 13:58 (walk break to talk to dad)
  4. 12:48
  5. 12:02
  6. 11:05 (8:37 AP for the first 0.25 then lost sight of Ann so stopped to wait for her)  And, garmie decided to split this one up and restart cause I was standing and stopped for too long.
  7. 14:26
  8. 14:36
  9. 14:05
  10. 10:21 (walked during this but ran it in the low 9’s)
  11. (0.6) – 8:10

So, my “moving time” and AP were off.  So it did take us about 2:03 for 10miles.  Not too shabby.

Pictures!  Lynn, I’ll see you your baby birds and raise you two families of adorable baby geese’s!

I did a package of sport beans before the run.  A few more at mile 5 and a few more after.  I felt good too.  No nausea or real bad fatigue afterwards.  Can’t wait to try the gu that I won from skinny runner!

Looking forward to a 10K on Sunday.  Should get out for a run today.  And I will, eventually.  Didn’t run yesterday, was quilting all morning for quilt club then cleaned and made dinner in the afternoon.  Worked 12hr on Wed, so no run then.  I ran on Monday with Tiffany!!!  Finally!  Looking forward to more runs this summer now that she’s almost done with classes for a little while!

A few giveaways:

Skinny runner’s giving away zensah socks!  OOOhhh.  Hopefully I win this one.

Julie’s has a huge first giveaway!  Tons of prizes.

Thanks ladies!  Happy entering to all!

Putting clothing away is totally overrated! The run was a good choice ;-)
