I took my dads advice and SLOWED down my long run today. It sucked major to run 6 min 20 sec kms but apparently this is how to train for a marathon. So I did it. I had to watch my garmin steady cause I kept going to fast. I managed to hold my turtle pace till km 22 when I said screw it and sped up. I didn't go too fast, just did my last 5 km around 5 min 45 sec kms and that felt better. I think I could have done 30 easy today but I will save that for next week. I drove to the gym and started my run from there so once it was done I took my hot mess of a self into the gym and did some weights and push ups.
After that I had a quick shower at the gym and then ran around like a crazy person trying to get a million things done before I go away for the weekend. One thing I had to do was a pedicure.....Not for please but because my feet are a mess. I get a pedi ever 2 weeks but my poor feet still look like this
I am glad the run went well....30 km next week! yikes
Oh another note....I found a new place for myself as of September 1st! I can not wait....It is sooooo cute......Now if I can just find some boys to move my stuff.....lol.....
I go away tomorrow until Sunday to a cottage. I can not wait to get out of the city....Gonna do some short runs while I am there but other then that gonna take it easy....It is my Birthday weekend after all!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you Monday!
