I got the email "ok" from the coach who designed my training plan to run the 6 miles scheduled for Saturday today instead. See, I have to work this weekend. Saturday I work all day, but on Sunday, I only work 3 hours. Therefore, it made since to run the 6 miles for Saturday today and rest on Saturday. Then, I will run the scheduled 13 miles Sunday since I don't go in until 1pm.
Today, the 6 miles were ran on a trail around my house. Decided to do the trails, instead of driving 40 minutes into town, since I was running solo. The weather was perfect!
Break down of the run:
6.02 miles at an average of 9:10
Mile 1- 9:45
Mile 2- 9:23
Mile 3 - 9:12
Mile 4 - 9:01
Mile 5- 9:00
Mile 6- 8:41
Trail running is fun, but you can count on getting dirty!!! That is for sure!!! I wore my least favorite shoes because I knew I would be getting my shoes dirty. These Nikes are ok, but I only wear them for distances 6 and under..... can not tolerate for a longer run. They are cute, with being pink and all, but still not my "go to shoe" typically.
I walked a mile afterwards...... I was joined by this cute lil guy who had decided to roll out of bed. He literally kept his PJs on, and simply threw on a fleece pull over and put on his boots!! I think this was the best part of my morning!
Well, gotta finish up the laundry (don't be jealous!! LOL)
How was your FRIDAY? Were you off from work? Did you run? Did you tackle the Black Friday shoppers? (I was off today.... I avoid all the Black Friday sales/shopping... just wasn't up to it!)
Did you run today? Have a race? Are you training for a particular run? DO tell...........
