It was time to get in one last weekend of miles in before my next half marathon.
So Friday I knocked out a quick 4 miler – pretty uneventful.
Saturday I banged out 14 miles. This run I met up with the White Rock Running Co-op, and a long time run bud…
My bud and I hadn’t run together in a while, and so we chatted the (exactly) 2 hours we were running. I was pretty pleased, because even with the chatting we still were able to hold an 8:30 per mile pace. I’m hoping that’s a good sign for this weekend’s race where I really want to claim a PR.
It was also good that I ran there because part of the race is going through the same part of town as this training run.
Afterwards we had tacos…naturally.
Then it was on to the boy’s soccer game. Sadly, my coaching didn’t lead us to a win this week.
On Sunday I met up with some friends for a trail run. We cranked out another 6 miles.
Afterwards it was on to yoga. Aaaaand my legs were done.
The rest of the weekend saw us visiting the pumpkin patch. Though it didn’t seem quite right when it is 85 degrees out.
What else, what else..oh yeah, I signed up for a 2nd race this week!!! Two days before the 13.1, I’m running a 3.1. It’s the inaugural Mavs Run This Town 5k. Woot woot!
This event combines a lot of stuff I love – running, the Mavericks, and The Old 97’s. I’ll preview this race soon, but for now, just know that I’m super happy fun time pumped!
How bout you? Exhausting weekend much? Any good topics to talk about on long runs with friends? Git yo pumkins yet? Good idea to race less than 48 hrs before another race?
I did a trail run with a similar looking map result. I couldn’t find my turn and wasn’t lost precisely, just directionally challenged.
Maybe butts are extra sensitive to being burned, so a medium heat would do it? Did you put some on your butt to test it out?
