I'm catching up with you from last week. Last Thursday my husband surpised me with this new I love Tofu tee-shirt. I think it's really fun! We had dinner with my dad that night - burgers and garden salads with the greens from our garden.
I did 14.4 miles on Saturday and it was hard. I felt so happy to be trail running, but it really was work. Of course I felt crazy accomplished post run though.
At halfway point, I truly had thoughts of stopping. I knew that it was just a bad mile though and the best thing I could do was keep running and let it pass. Sure enough it did. My husband and pups were hiking while I ran so it was total motivation seeing them every few miles. I grabbed some shotbloks from my husband and passed him back a Mojo Cliff bar that I just couldn't get down. My last mile was my slowest because I had to run/climb up a big hill to get back to the car. But my husband and pups were waiting at the car (and we were going to Chipotle post run) so I had quite the motivation to get up that hill!
My overall pace for this run was 9:30. I was happy with that. On Sunday I did a 2 mile run just to get my legs moving and it was really fun to run shorter and faster (8:00 minute pace). That being said, getting out of bed this Monday morning was a little tough.
The rest of Sunday was filled with Soy Green Tea Lattes at Barnes & Noble, lots of good food, we watched Anchorman, and hungout on the deck. Also, I've decided that Tofutti and peanut butter pair wonderfully on toast - try it!
I've got a 4 day work week this week which I'm looking forward to!
How was your weekend?
