Plan A was to meet for the first time someone to run 5miles at about a 11min pace. However, when I go to the track where we were meeting, I sent a text message describing my vehicle. Well, the text I received back was that the person was not going to be able to make it. I live a distance from town (takes about 35-40 min to drive in to town). It was early and dark! No one was at the track. I missed the 6:30 group that runs a bit faster pace. So, it was on to Plan B! I always have a plan B.... must be flexible! I was planning to hit up Publix after running to get the grocery shopping done for the week. So, I decided to go ahead and get the grocery shopping done before heading home. I was the very first person (literally the first person through the door after the manager unlock the doors!)!!! I had the entire store to myself!!! Dressed in running gear with wide open grocery isles to sprint down!!! YES! This was going to be a stress free shopping spree! LOL!!! :)
Once home, I put up the groceries and headed outdoors!!! Was able to get in 4 miles.
So, the break down of the run was as follows:
4.01 total miles at an average 9:26/mile pace.
Mile 1 9:15
Mile4 9:44 (I walked a bit and took a drink of water/gatorade mixture)
Was planning to go 5-6 miles, however, as I approached the end of mile 4, I had a little policeman outside on the deck asking if he could go with me.... And one look at the following picture, you know I couldn't say no.... so yes, my run ended, but I was able to walk with a cute little policeman!
IT has been raining a great deal lately... it was a muddy run...
No make up-- don't care!!!
Muddy legs- don't care!! LOL :)
Did you run today?
How was your Sunday?
Do you like trail running? Even if muddy?......
Have a GREAT rest of the day!!! Tomorrow is MONDAY!!!! BOSTON!!!! YAY!!! Until later!!!......
