The Wednesday Run
As it turns out, my body is s l o w l y recovering from the half marathon last Sunday. :S I'm concluding that it's due to the hilly course and the fact that it was all on asphalt. My calves and quads are still feeling a bit stale so today I chose to run at a steady pace. Not super speedy but not crawling either....well, some of you fasties may consider 8:17 pace/mile crawling...lol.
It was once again humid this morning with little to no breeze. Lovely. I took my nuun I mentioned from yesterday's post. I filled two fuel bottles with the citrus flavour and headed out. I couldn't wait for the turn around point so that I could gulp one of those bad boys down. I got a little bit of a stitch about 1/2 mile later. :S Probably from the before mentioned 'gulping,' lol.
1hr 14 minutes
Okay, I saw this cool pug pic, courtesy of John Stanton's (Running Room Founder) facebook page. I giggled for reason #1: it looks like my sister Trudy's dog 'Doug,' which everyone seems to agree is the coolest name for a Pug and #2 it looked like a pic I snapped of Lola this Winter wearing my face mask for runs in -20 degree Celsius or less....BRRR! Check out these cuties!
Doug the Pug :)
|I totally stole this pic from Trudy......lol.|
Something neat I found on the net
As it turns out, facebook can be useful for finding entertaining things......and not just drama! ;) Just kidding. Anytime I see a link to something related to 'Running' I must click to check it out. :D This was a cool site that identifies the 26 Stages of Running in a humorous way. Check it out....I promise you'll giggle. :)
Thanks again for paying me a visit. Have a wonderful evening!
