I was pretty sluggish and stale when I woke up Monday morning. As it turns out, my body feels that 16 miles is where I draw the line between jolly long run and REAL long run territory.
My recovery run for Monday would definitely be happening on the flat trail. Oh yes. No doubt about it.
Oh my goodness: My Camelbak cut me during my long run and I didn't even know it until the dreaded sting in the shower!
I realized I have become a famous blogger when.............
Meg's cat Jelly was caught checking in on GGR! :) If felines are reading my blog, I must be a big deal, right? ;)
Oh gee, look what finally showed up! I ordered these before Sam and she received her's before I did, yet again! This always happens when we order...lol. It's like Pro Compression knows I avidly check my mail every single day.
Secretly I will tell you my latest Netflix crazed addiction.
Tuesday's run had me slightly intimidated. For real. It was scorching hot before 9 this morning and I had to do 8 miles with several at Tempo pace.Gulp.
My first mile sucked! But it's super true that you should never judge your run by the first mile. I warmed up, with great thanks to the humidity I'm sure, and got to work. I ran the neighbouring subdivision to incorporate some rolling hills and it was a challenge. With some self coaching I kept plugging away and before I knew it I was six miles in! My last 2 were really warm! Even though I wore my mesh Brooks tank!
|Take extra notice of how it's suctioned to my belly with moisture.|
After a crazy hot 8 mile Tempo run, I had to replenish my sodium stores. ;)
I'll be jetting over to Newfoundland tomorrow morning super duper early! So the next time you hear from me, I'll be on the rock! :)
I'm sure going to miss these crazy eyes. <3
Thanks for visiting with GGR on this sticky hot evening! Have an awesome night. :)
