I guess someone partied too hard on the weekend. ;) Or stayed up too late watching the last show of season 2 of OITNB!!!! OMG.....It was amazingly good! Did you watch it yet????
Yesterday I had a fabulous sunny run. Being conscious of my strained arch (from over-doing it in ballet flats), I decided I'd aim for 10 miles at an easy pace and if I felt good, fine and if I didn't, I'd head home.
With Camelbak, visor, sunscreen, Gu and tunes, I headed out. It was pretty warm with a strong breeze left over from Saturday's Tropical Storm.
I saw many trees like this on my run. :(
|The reason I avoided the trail on Saturday. That and Matt telling me a tree killed someone|
during Hurricane Juan !
With the wind and heat my mouth was drying out super quick. I was again reminded of my super awesome decision to purchase the Camelbak...I knew I wouldn't regret it this summer! You'll be happy to know that I drank the entire 2L of H20! I took a Salted Caramel Gu at 10 miles, more so because it was there, not because I needed it...lol.
I was feeling pretty good...hot...but good, so I kept trucking along. When I reached the car wash heading into the city, I thought I'd run home along the main road. Heads up: It's not a good idea for a coffee lover to run by a Starbucks and a Tim Horton's when you're out on your long run. It sure did smell good though!
I was at 13.something miles when I checked my Garmin, so I decided to loop around a side street to make it an even 15.
A big run calls for a big dinner! We had planned a BBQ, but the hornet's nest inside our BBQ had other plans....Gulp.
|Missing from photo: My giant plate of Garden Salad...mmm.|
My big dinner made for great fuel during this morning's Pump class. ;) I made a new friend today there this morning. She was a sweet older lady who was in stellar shape. She asked what type of workouts I do and I replied, "Running and free weights mostly." She pointed to my arms and said, "Well yes I can see that." She is my new BFF. :D
It was a great class and any sort of bending or lifting tomorrow should prove to be very interesting. I'll keep you posted.
I have been sniffling with allergies ALL day! Super frustrating. I'm off to a physio appointment now, and I really hope he doesn't mind that I plan to stuff Kleenex up my nostrils...lol.
Did you get any damage from Hurricane/Tropical Storm Arthur???
Any Races coming up???
There is a very high possibility that I am racing in a 5 mile road race on Saturday...We'll see!
Thanks for stopping by GGR and have a wonderful day!
