Wow, where do I begin? I feel like I've been away from Blogland forever! I'll go for a quick review!
So last week I ran with the "People who run Downtown" on Tuesday and then again on Thursday. The Thursday night group was bigger, definitely a good time. Afterwards a bunch of us hung out and ate dinner at "Jo Mamma's", I had the BEST pizza!
Saturday I ran with my Team in Training group at North Park. I was hoping to do 12 miles, but after our 7 mile loop I could feel a blister brewing on my left foot. I went back out for the 3.4 mile loop, I could really feel it them. So when I came back in and took off my shoe....yikes! There it was, gross. Our running coach, Coach Chris, looked at it and said the damage I would do running on it would outweigh the good of getting in another mile and a half. Booooo. Good news though is that for the first 7 miles I averaged 9:17/mile, so I was happy with that. After the run I went to my nieces Birthday Party, too fun! I was psyched to see that they were having pizza, I was starving!!! The rest of the day was a blur, I basically napped, ate, napped, ate, etc.
Sunday I took my bike out for a ride on the Peters Trail. My friend Linda met up with me and we did 11 miles. The whole time I kept thinking - this is so much easier than running! I think my foot was happy for the break!
Monday morning I met up with my group at the track, we did our 2 mile timed run. My first mile was 8:15 and second was 8:06!!! AWESOME!
Monday night I hit the Peters trail to get in the 6 miles that were on my schedule, it went pretty good. I had to walk a few times because of that freaking blister, but I got it done in 59 minutes (that's technically less than 10 minute miles!). But the best part about the Monday night run was the HOTTIE that I spotted on a bike!!!!!!!! Seriously, I will be frequenting this trail with the hopes of spotting him again! I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure he was checking me out, after he rode past me (we were going in opposite directions) we both did the "turn around and look", I was ready to do the "turn around and chase" LOL!!!!
Well, time to get to work! We have photo shoots today and tomorrow, so long days ahead!
I will post more details from the past week later on!
