Just realized that last year we had lots of wind and my post was titled almost the same as this morning’s – I swear I didn’t know!
2009 – Wind In The Pillows
2010 – Wind In The Willows
7.0 miles in 60 minutes!
2009 – Read, Run, Relax, Repeat
We set out on a run that covered the span of the island – 7.0 miles total. Just like last year! Last year’s 7 was the first long run in my half marathon training. I’d love to work my way up to run another half, but I just am not sure when to commit to it. Maybe this milestone should be the beginning again, just like last year?
We set out really FAST – I think because we all had fresh legs from our cooped up day yesterday.
Mile 1 – 7:57 (!!)
Mile 2 – 8:00
Mile 3 – 8:26
Then I got a side stitch. Too fast too soon! We walked for a few seconds and I caught my breath. Then we resumed and finished the final 4 miles between 8:30 and 8:50.
I ran as fast as I could and just about lost my breath in the last stretch. We made it with 20 seconds to spare!!
Within seconds of arriving home, Matt fed me a few orange slices – just what my whole body needed!
The others deserted us for a photograph, so here’s me and Andrew
Feeling great now!! I’ve got that metabolic boost that makes me feel all hot on the inside from the hard run.
After showers, lunch came next – more hydrating citrus!
A Hugh Jass grapefruit
Plus toast with PB and J, a carrot and some chips
Larbs made these pumpkin cups for tonight’s dessert and we sampled one after lunch –
This morning I took a bunch of headshots of my mom for her website (she’s an author!) They turned out pretty nice! Which is your favorite?
