I felt the need for another long run, so I texted Mel at 7am hoping that she would be up for a run with me. Thank goodness she was! We met at her house and drove to the Orting Trail for 9 miles. Her friend Amy was going to do 7 miles and started the run with us. It was a pretty soggy morning, and people were probably just getting ready for the big game in the afternoon because the trail was not busy.
|Red-faced and glowing after our 10.2 miles!|
When we almost hit 9 miles, I asked if we could make it 10, and Mel countered with "how about 10.2?" Perfect.
The end of the run was a struggle. My feet were burning (stupid neuromas!) and oddly enough my c-section scare was hurting me. Mel is a great coach though, and I knew that 10 miles was a big accomplishment. Woot!
The rest of the day was me getting the house ready for our 3rd annual Super Bowl party with our friends. Fun! My big "Nekkid Semi" magnet (it's 12 inches by 12 inches!) is temporarily displayed on our fridge and all our friends were impressed/amused by it. Some of them didn't even know about my fear! Greeaaaat....now they have something to use against me in the future. ;)
Recovery. I don't remember what I did that day. Sometimes taking care of a newborn makes my brain mush.
3 mile run with Goober, Gus and Gizmo. Wasn't feeling particularly fantastic, but got the miles in anyway. Lifted weights with Travis and OH.MY.GOODNESS. it's been a long time since I've lifted anything that heavy. Woah. I'm super sore. We did squats, deadlifts and baseball bat swings. Halfway through the workout I had to bring Goob into the garage to watch us, she didn't want to continue her nap. She was mesmerized by the neon UW light we have up, and she danced to the techno lifting music. Family lifting time!
