Today’s run was hard, well the first half sure was. I set out at about 7 this morning and went to my favorite running trail. Please note: I somehow managed to get my finger in the bottom of each of the pictures I took while running.
I think I was just tired and as weird as it was I was having a little bit of separation anxiety when I left Brooke at home with Billy. I used to hear other moms talk about this and I thought they must surely be crazy but it was weird/hard to leave Brooke for a few hours to go out on my run… I have issues. Luckily at about halfway through the run I started feeling much better and my body finally felt warmed up. I think I averaged around an 8:20 for the first 8 miles and a 7:40 for the last 8 miles. Why does it take me so long to get into my running groove sometimes?
The best part about this trail is that you NEVER have to stop and you get to run by water for a majority of the trail. Running by water is the best. The trail keeps going forever and I probably saw at least 800 other runners out on the trail this morning.
Blurry fuel of choice for this morning was Cran-Razz shot bloks.
This is really random but before this blog I had another blog a long time ago in which I wrote a total of 5 posts and each post had about 8 words in it, I was really into it:) I trained for my first marathon entirely on the treadmill and here is the entry from the first time I ever ran 16 miles. Dang it… today’s run took me 2 hours and 7 minutes:)
I went through a phase of only calling Billy Bil Bil.
I came home to Brooke lifting her head a foot off of the ground?!?! SHE IS GROWING UP TOOOOOOO FAST!!!
PS California, I love you and now my entire produce drawer in my fridge is full of beautiful avocados.
Tonight is going to be a good night.
How was your run this morning?
How long does it take you to feel really warmed-up?
