We had an awesome time yesterday at the Monster Jam! The boys got to meet some of the drivers and then we had a blast watching the show. I ended my low carb eating (as planned) by having a couple of beers. Then for dinner we ordered Thai food and had more beer.
Today, my run rocked! I didn’t really want to do it as I was in kind of a funk, but the temps broke 30 degrees around 2 pm, so I made myself do it. Sunday is usually my speed workout, so I warmed up and then did 4 x quarter mile with a little over a tenth of a mile as a break in between. I wanted to do 6, but my times for the four were 1:52, 1:57, 1:52, and 1:59 and I think that may have been a bit faster than I should have done. Not sure, since the only training plan I’ve even looked at lately is the one done by Lindsey for JoyRun LOL. I ended up doing a total of four miles at an average of an 8:54 pace.
So, Glaven, as much as I hate to admit it, you are right. Beer is not crap. Beer is apparently the best fuel ever. :o)
I just registered for the Capital Hospice 12K. It’s a new distance for me, so an automatic PR LOL.

Great speed work – must’ve been the beer! 🙂
I have had some great runs after a couple of beers. Odd.Nice speed work!
Ooh, cool re: 12k! I haven’t registered yet (am waiting to hear if my husband wants to run it, too) but I will definitely e-mail you when I do– my First Blog Meet up! (Oh, and I’ll be sure to listen to you and Glaven and drink plenty of beer beforehand.)
Great speedwork! See, with beer being with carbs & all…
Great job on the run! A 12K is certainly a unique distance for a road race, but that should make it kinda fun!
