Yesterday I got home from a weekend of visiting family and a nice Easter! I hadn't run all weekend and decided to try and get out for a quick run, 3 miles, at about 7:30pm after 8 hours of driving. Before I got to the end of the street I decided to try to do the 8 miles I had planned for the weekend.
Once I got out of town and on a gravel road I'd never seen before, something odd happened. I thought why not try another 2 and go for an even 10 miles? Very strange for me. I usually struggle to finish the distances I have planned or am satisfied to do whatever is planned for the day.
It was a bit slower than I have been running (13:30 pace) but I still have a month before my HM to pick up the speed a bit. I walked the last mile as well so that is throwing my time a bit.
Kind of a cool day though!
And on another note, something SUPER AWESOME is happening on Thursday.
I AM GOING TO SEE JILLIAN MICHAELS. I am soooo excited!!! She's my favorite! I couldn't afford a ticket (at $100 each) and then yesterday there was a random Groupon for tickets that were half price. The 2 friends I watched Biggest Loser with all year got super excited too and the 3 of us bought tickets to go! And to top it off, my mom and dad paid for mine as my early birthday present. Woohoo!!
