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:
- 12:55 (walk break to talk to gramma)
- 13:58 (walk break to talk to dad)
- 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.
- 10:21 (walked during this but ran it in the low 9’s)
- (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!
Why’d I run this impromptu again?! (at the end of the run)
Ann, finishing strong, can’t take a bad picture!
As evidenced by: (after our run, I look pretty rooooughhh and she’s a glowy and pretty…darn you!)
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.
