According to my GPS data I believe each of my mile splits were around 7 to 7:20 minute miles depending on whether I was running up that hill or down that hill. Although I admit my friend Garmin's technological difficulties rubbed off on me and my lap counting so I may be off on my times a bit there. No matter, my legs, bum and heart rate all felt it so I call it a success.
Captain Kirk and Coach (Blurry) Nikon set up a nice course for us to run complete with a "glowing stick" (Hawaii Mike's term which had me laughing all night) as our turn-around mile marker. The group pretty much stayed together which I think resulted in a nice bonding experience for all. The view of Lake Natoma was awesome along with an almost full moon. Garmin stated it made him feel very "Forrest-Gumpy" to run along the lake like that. Run Garmin Run!
Today's workout is supposed to be a 35 to 45 minute recovery run. I had great intentions of waking up at 5 am and hitting the pavement but with the Peanut not going to bed until after 10 pm and my legs feeling all jello like when I got out of bed I changed my mind. I'll do the workout tonight along with the Peanut in the BOB jogger because I cannot stand being away from her a third night in a row. The "missing momma" syndrome is starting to take its toll on her resulting in a "momma momma" cry fest at daycare drop off today. Oh the mommy guilt can be so heavy sometimes. It is the worst pain in the world I tell ya.
Missing momma last night.
Enough to break your heart.
