Saturday started out with a pick-a-run. I headed out knowing that I would do no less than 6 and maybe as much as 8. But I wasn’t really putting the pressure on myself to do the full 8 when I left. But I did it anyway. Once you are out there, you might at well. And the surprising part was that I averaged my goal race pace!
Run: 8 miles / 1:31:32
The rest of Saturday consisted of picking up our fruit/veggie basket (great, more brussel sprouts), running a few errands with my favorite sister and then watching the Kona Ironman special! Because watching hours of the Ironman live on my computer wasn’t enough.
Food was a mish-mosh of stuff. I had cream of wheat before the run, half of a Costco pumpkin muffin after. Then there was a peach, a strawberry smoothie and some chex mix. And Michael and I went to Smashburger for dinner. Then one beer and that was it!
And then there was a party fail. We were set to go to my sister’s neighbors Halloween party. But by the time the party got going, we were winding down. We hung out at my sisters instead and then came home. Fine by me. I have never been a party until dawn kind of girl. And when it didn’t really get rolling until 11, the $15 cover didn’t really seem worth it.
