Long Run and a Winner!

Happy Sunday everyone! How’s the weather in everyones neck of the woods? It was supposed to be sunny and 70 here today but its cloudy, windy and 60 boo!!

At least I could still run!

Very slowly but 13 miles none the less! I have a BIG issue with starting too fast. I am really bad at pacing myself as well as holding a pace. I bounce between 8:30 min/mile and 10:40 during almost all of my runs, not helpful.

Part of it was actually really exciting! I took my normal path but instead of looping where I normally do I kept running. I know the area from driving but have never run it. I ended up on a muddy path leaping over roots and branches ( I felt super bad-ass) plus it was downhill for almost a mile so I was FLYING! The only bad thing? It really pooped me out and then I had to go uphill on the return… no fun, no fun. Plus I ended up in a not so great part of town, unhappy moment. But at least it was an adventure!

I woke up extra early for this run because PerMa asked me to come to her church with her for the last sermon of the season. It was actually really nice and it was the flower sermon so we came home with some lovely decorations

Post- run and pre-church I of course had breakfast! Overnight oats are so great for after a long run because right after, I’m starving, thirsty and I don’t want to think or move.

  1. My favorite post run breakie or meal is protein cookie dough cereal!

  2. Wow, congrats on that run! I can’t imagine running for that long! I did 5 miles today and I was so pooped after that. :P

    I usually run after breakfast, so I love having a big, filling sandwich for lunch afterwards!

  3. Great run. I’ve never even heard of the crunch time PB.
