Did two cool exercise related things this weekend. Allison had a basketball game in the afternoon. The game was 6 miles away from the house. So, being inspired by our resident blogger, Joe "ihaterunning" Breda, I biked over. Watched the game and then biked back. Boy the quads were still on fire.
Today was (and still is) a little yuckie outside. It has been raining all day. Despite feeling "bleh" and with a mild headache, I changed into my running duds and headed out. It was kind of cold and breezy, and even with my long sleeve running shirt, I felt I needed some extra protection. So, I go back inside and grab my fancy HMSA 25K navy blue wind breaker. I was the only runner out there. How surprising. The start was a little cold and yuckie but 5 minutes into the run, it was a lot of fun, splashing the water with every step. The only bad part was during the last mile when I saw lighting strikes. My body automatically kicked into high gear and I ran home as fast as possible.
Mile 1: 9:42
Mile 2: 8:58
Mile 3: 8:21
0.1 Mile: 0:40
Kayano Miles: 120.9
Another nice negative splitting. The legs felt light today with none of the "heavy" feeling. It looks as if the 12 mile bike ride from yesterday helped me out.
