The weekend was another busy one. It basically started with the weekly social run. The run started/finished t at a very cool Tex-Mex joint that is always very friendly to our group. I was glad to see my friend Pepsi show up (yes, her real name) as I knew we could pace each other. We ended up going between 3-3.5 miles at 7:20ish per mile pace.
On Saturday, I did my long run. I decided to go 10 miles for my first double digit mileage in a few months. It was warm and sweaty, so I guess that means I’m going to have to start getting up earlier as the Texas summer is coming. Good news is that my recent speed work seems to be helping as I ran the 10 miles at an 8:20ish per mile pace.
BTW, am I the only ones who think about our running and/or blogging friends around the world who we also know are running a workout or race at the same time? This morning my mind wandered a bit to our blogging friend Salt, who I knew was running her first 20 mile distance. I hoped she was doing well, and I’m sure she was!
Anyway, on Sunday I met some of my other running friends for yoga at Lululemon. It was an interesting practice. It was the first time that I’ve ever been in the corpse pose at the end and the instructor didn’t tell us when to stop and get up. She left it up to us (without telling us that’s what she was doing). Looking back, I wish I would’ve just laid there on the floor for a long time – like, even after they opened the store – strictly for comedy. Oh well, next time!
How bout you? Ever run with someone who you know will push you (not literal)? Any
weird interesting yoga classes? Ever think of other runners when running?
