So, first run back was friday morning!! I can't tell you how excited I was!! SO excited Igot up at 5:00am to drive downtown to meet some new girls to run with.
Apparently they changed their time and I almost missed them:(:( but luckily just as I was leaving I saw them and jumped out of my car.
I thought they were only running 4 but turns out they were running 8...and at a much faster pace than I SHOULD have been running.
first run back.EASY run, should have been 8:30 pace...but everytime I looked at my garmin it said 7:30-7:45...I was thinking "oh crap, this is NOT what I'm supposed to be running after being sick and having 2 wks off:(" but I survived...thought my legs were SORE.
then yesterday morning we went to Leif Erickson...which is great but is rolling hills in a steady uphill climb for the first few miles..
I was trying to run it slow but could not believe how SORE my quads were by the time I hit 6 miles and turned around.....it was RIDICULOUS. it must just be that I haven't run b/c they were KILLING me!
anyway....when we were about 1 mile from the bottom, GUESS WHO I RAN BY???
SHALANE FLANAGAN and her couch...andthe other blonde girl who is in the article with her in this months Runners World.
I was too stupid to stay something but I should have yelled out "Hi Shalane!!! Look, I'm wearing your compression socks from the Runners World article!!" lol..do you think she would have thought I was a DORK??! ha ha...probably!!!
Anyway.... 12 miles done....8:20 pace...good easy run....
OH and then I went to bed last night at 6pm and slept 12 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! woohoo....
all geared up for this week!!!
