Lately I've been talking about the importance of a good running buddy because I've been really whinny lately.
My energy level has been really low and I basically just haven't "wanted" to go on my scheduled runs.
I've been perfectly able physically but my head just hasn't been in the game.
Luckily I haven't been able to muster up the weeniness to cancel on Amy:)
Tonight I felt super tired but decided to go running anyway....and had a great run!
My scheduled workout called for 1 easy mile, 2 Short Tempo Miles, 1 Easy Mile, 2 Short Tempo Miles.
Amy and I started our run early so we could do our easy mile and still have 2 miles of at least semi flat ground. Because we're sneaky like that:)
My run was:
Mile 1: It was actually .66 because Amy and I were getting cold. 9:33 per mile
Mile: 2-3 My goal was 7:15 per mile and I ran it 7:12, 7:11
Easy Mile: 10:24 Up Deschutes PKWY which is pretty much a mile uphill.
Mile 5-6: My goal was 7:15 per mile and I ran it 7:20, 7:09
Cool Down Mile: 9:07 per mile
I also think I might marry whomever cleaned the leaves off Capital Blvd allowing me to see where I was putting my feet.
I've been having trouble making my goal paces on Wednesday and I was pretty sure it was due to the fact that when you're running in the dark over wet leaves and can't see if you're about to kill yourself- it's hard to worry about pace:)
In other news I really want to win Amy's Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway. I looked really good in that dress at my cousins wedding and want one of my own.
