We're having a very nice Memorial Day weekend. Friends are here to relax and enjoy with us. We're just hanging near home. Really, when you live a stone's throw from a lake, it's a great way to spend a long weekend. Last night we did guac and chips, fajitas, and cocktails. Today we're fonduing it - lunch - dinner - desert :-) And, of course, we can't resist a good old American cookout for Memorial Day starring grassfed beef burgers.
Not a lot of exercise going on but, with yesterdays carb-loading, today was a great day for a run. I hit the 1-mile loop at a local park. It was 80F which is the hottest I've ever run in. I set a goal of running the whole time and making a call at 3 miles whether or not to do 4. I decided to stop at 3. Got 3 miles in in 28:30. That's slightly slower than my official 5K (28:49 for 3.11mi) but I feel good about it because I ran it (and I ran-walked after the 2 mi mark of the 5K). Next weekend I'll do it again with the same goal. I'm trying to work on pacing (so I don't have to walk at all) and decreasing my time.
Must say I am SO happy with my running shoes. I can't believe that I bought them and took off running and have never had any 'breaking in' period at all. They are SO comfy and so supportive at the same time.
YTD: 42.75 miles
