|I haven't seen numbers like this in way too long. It's nice to be training seriously again.|
Anyway, Sunday I peeled myself out of bed thirty minutes later than planned and went out for my long run. Last week I had posed the question about how to work my race and long run into the same weekend, and I decided to heed the advice of a fellow runner that basically went something like this: run long after the race; it'll give you practice at running on tired legs.
|My splits were incredibly even.|
This was my second long run during which I wore the fuelbelt (the first being last weekend's 7-miler). It really is super comfortable and I needed the water. Because I was late getting started, it ended up being really warm toward the end of the run.
I took a new route; it was gorgeous and perfect and I was a terrible blogger (but great runner) because I was too into the run to stop and take any pictures. When I run on Christmas morning, I'll be sure to get some...especially if the gator I saw Sunday is out again on Wednesday!
|Ahh...perfect ice bath!|
|NEWS TEAM ASSEMBLE!|
All told, this was a great weekend! I'm trying to use every moment of winter break to its fullest. I'd say it's been successful so far.
