Thursday~ Today I met Andi for a little run. The weather was in the upper 30’s and it was drizzling. It looked ( besides a few ice pathches) as if it was spring. Oh, how I wish……I really did not feel like running today and would have been happy with 4 miles if that many! I got there late ( which I HATE), and when I got there she was not ready for another 10-15 minutes anyway. Ha. No big deal. We were finally on our way and finally took a different route. The only bad thing about this route is that it is in the city so we had to stop a lot at the traffic lights( well, now that I think of it, it was not such a bad thing after all.) The worst part of the run was Fulton St. Hill. It’s long and steep. I don’t know how long exactly, but it really slowed our pace down. Like to a 10:16 mile. The good thing is that it was in the beginning…which meant that on the way back it would be a nice long down hill! 🙂
Mile 2: 10:16 – The evil hill. It was brutal. We ceased most of the talking here.
Mile 3: 9:42- Back to level ground. We also stopped to go inside a bike store and drool over all the sweet bikes! Probably should have not gone in..they had some beauties!;)
Mile 4: 9:40-Feeling pretty good here. Oh, it must be the downhill
Mile 5: 9:26- The YMCA was just around the corner…..looking forward to being DONE!
Mile 6: 4:42 (.51 of a mile).Done!
This would count as negative splits if I swapped Mile 1 and 2 ( darn hill) 🙂
I am glad I ran, but I am also glad to be done. After the run we actually stretched. Waaay overdue too! After that, the kids and I went to the indoor track and ran 3 laps. Miles ran the entire laps! It’s a small track, but still. His crazy little legs were all over the place and he was moving! Amara is an old pro on that track. Miles tried hard to catch her and he did once. It was fun. Tonight I think we are all going out to eat at Uccello’s. (website editing/images courtesy of my hubby!) Will I get a big old burger or pizza or pasta?? Or something else….it will be a last hooray of sorts before the 2011 resolutions begin. I don’t make resolutions, but I also don’t worry ( well too much!) about all the garbage I shovel down during the holiday’s. I thouroughly enjoy all the grease and grime! I am already sick of it ( almost….) but won’t be completely done until Jan. 2. No need to kid myself! I like to start things fresh on a Monday. Matt and I will be doing a 10 day cleanse starting on the 3rd. It will be his 3rd time I think and my 5th. Every 90 days I like to do it and get back on track. I am actually looking forward to it. I really am. I will update how it is going and it always goes fine. I am not stuck on the commode for hours a day so that’s a plus already! 😉
