you go visit your parents’ house and, in addition to the toothbrush, contact solution and other toiletries you keep there, you find a Gu, running clothes, and three! pairs of running shoes.
Yesterday, dad and I went out for an awesome 7 mile run. I finished in 1:08:48, which is an average of a 9:50 pace and I could have gone faster. My last mile I did in 9:15! I love running with my dad and I love running in Wisconsin as there are a lot fewer hills LOL. I also love “map my run” as I went on and found a 7 mile loop that someone in their small town had already done. Conveniently, it came within a half mile of my parents’ house, so we used that for our run yesterday. Now I just need to find a way to do 17 miles next week (I’m leaning towards doing the same run once in each direction with a stop at the house for potty and water refill.)
The kids and I are enjoying a nice break with my parents. I probably won’t be online as much as usual, but I’ll try to keep up with everyone. Today I’m missing a run for the first time since I started training. I had to push things back this week because of Beer Geek’s travel and our travel, so I’m supposed to do a four miler today and an 11 miler tomorrow. I know my legs well enough to know that running 7/4/11 back to back would be hard for me. I also have to move next week’s runs forward so I can do my 17 mile run on Friday (we travel on Saturday), so I don’t want to start that week off fatigued. It feels weird to miss a run though.
