How RUNderful has your weekend been?
My weekend sort of feels like someone stole a portion of it. Why does it feel so short???
I can't believe I forgot to show you a photo of my supper from Friday! I'm not sure why I feel the need to always take photos of my purple potatoes. I'm thinking it's their vibrancy. :) I only had 3 purple so I had to compromise and chuck in one baking potato. Still delish! It went along very nicely with our chicken and roasted vegetables.
After Lola and I walked for a mile, I headed out for my 7 mile pace run. My route was to go to the post office along the main road and back. This has been the first time in a long time I've done this route and I remembered why as I waited to cross the street as several cars zoomed by as though I were invisible. Thanks guys! ;) I actually stopped counting after twenty. :( It's a team effort everyone...show some love! ;)
My stomach was feeling a little queasy along the run and I'm not sure why. It passed off after about 4 miles or so. It's all good now. :D
There was super clear sidewalks. Yay!!! The weather was also very mild and it began to drizzle as I ran, which was quite refreshing as opposed to the arctic air that's been giving my face a real beating along the cold runs.
7:55 avg. pace/mile (4:55 avg. km) If you wonder how I figure this out, you can click here to use the Runner's World Pace Converter. :D You're welcome
After I was done showering and all warm again from my run, I noticed that my nails looked absolutely wretched! As I painted them with Covergirl's 'Grapevine' I watched The 40 Year Old Virgin.....that movie never gets old to me! LOL.
If Lola were to blog about her walk she'd say something like this I'm sure: Everything smelled so wonderful today and some dog dared to pee all over every snow pile around. I had to go redo it all! And I took a very long time to get my work done. Then mommy saw two people running and said 'Hurry Lola, Mommy has to go run!' The nerve!
I saw Marg as Lola and I walked this morning and then another super fast lady who I recognize, but I don't think she knows who I am....she ran a 3:11 this year in the marathon people!!! I always become eager to start running when I see others go by.
Do you get major Runner's envy when you see people running??? and you're not!
After lunch I went to the mall to pick something up and refuelled with a Salted Caramel Mocha...mmm.
Then I competed in the most difficult mental game of all..........Costco on a Saturday! :S The line up was super duper long and I got very bored.....so you get to see what I bought, lol.
While I was at the mall I picked up some honey stingers for my Sunday long run. Pink lemonade and orange blossom! :D
And, I've finally purchased a new pair of smart wools. These are my favourite winter running socks and you can virtually see through the bottom of my current two pairs. :( I still don't want to give them up....lol.
Well, I'm headed out for my 13 mile long run.....wish me luck!
Thanks for a lovely visit on this Sunday morning.....check back later to see how my long run goes. Have a beautiful day!
How long are you running today?
How do you mentally survive Costco on a Saturday? LOL
Do you use smart wools?
