It feels pretty darn good to get the long run done before the weekend even starts.
Miles 1-3= 8:45 pace
Miles 4-6= 8:30 pace
Miles 7-9= 8:15 pace
Miles 10-11= 8:00 pace
Miles 12-14= 6:50 pace
My strategy to listen to talks for the first 11 miles of the run worked like a charm. I forgot I was even really running most of the time so this will be a new thing I do during easy paced runs when I am running by myself. For the last three miles I turned on my running jams and got to work. It is kind of fun to try to hit a faster pace on legs that are tired (that is what I keep telling myself).
Some people have asked how I carry fuel and the answer is that on runs that I need fuel I make sure to wear shorts with a pocket in them to stash my Swedish Fish. Swedish Fish have been working extremely well for me lately.
After lunch my mom dropped us off at the airport to go visit friends in Las Vegas.
But first Brooke and Maggie said their goodbyes…that pup is sure going to be bored while Brooke is gone.
We packed a bunch of peaches and carrots for the plane
along with my favorite ‘trail mix’ of white chocolate chips and Rolos.
The frist thing we did when we got together was take a blurry picture.
Followed by eating spinach and artichoke dip.
We each ordered a different dish (I had the pasta pesto) and then we rotated them around the table to try them all.
And then we got really crazy and ate as many donuts as we could within 30 minutes.
What is your run this weekend?!?
Anyone listen to talks/podcasts while they run?
How do you carry your fuel on long runs?
Any good restaurant recommendations in Vegas?
