I did my first double digit run in a very long time yesterday and it went pretty well. My stomach felt a little weird from the very start of the run but other than it was pretty uneventful and I finished the 10 miles with a 7:11 average pace. I started at about a 7:40 pace and worked down to a 6:45 pace. Progression runs are my very favorite because it allows my legs plenty of time to really wake up
I came home stretched, did core work, 8 minute arms, ate and by the time I was done with that everyone was still asleep so I did the right thing and also went back to bed.
Every long run should be followed by going back to bed. Actually every run should be followed by that.
It was quite crowded in Santa Cruz.
And like always I really wanted to try the deep fried Oreo. One of these days I will spend $5 to eat an Oreo.
Restaurants that have toys for kids to play with are officially my new favorite.
We went for Surfrider Cafe for a late lunch/early dinner. I have a thing for buffalo chicken sandwiches with coleslaw on them. See that mountain of cheese in the back? That was the amazing parmesan garlic fries.
I have to show you my cousin’s salmon tacos because they came with avocado fries (fried slices of avocado, they looked amazing) in them.
And the best part of Marianne’s is the stylin’ wallpaper. I had a scoop of the heath bar and the brownie/caramel/fudge/oreo one.
Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday!
