Holy Heat Batman!!!
It's been a few days since I've blogged, but I have been running. I finished my 7 miler on Saturday, as Hal had planned for me and it wasn't too bad. I finished 7.02 miles in 1 hr. 14 min. I was happy with that, until my husband decided that he wanted to "run my route" on Sunday morning. I just knew he was going to put my time to shame and even though he's 6 ft. tall and has been a runner most of his life, I have been working so hard on my runs, that I just wanted him to leave my route alone. I know! I know! I know! I can be competitive, but so can he. I guess that's part of our "couple charm."
Well anyway, he ran my route, from last Saturday...6.25 miles. However, he ran it slower than I did. (Insert silent happy dance and evil laugh.) It's really not that I don't want him to do well...I just want to do better. I can say that because I know he feels the same way. :)
I am starting to feel stronger, not that my runs are getting easier, I'm just more mentally prepared for what's coming. If that makes any sense? I'm keeping at my average of 10 min/mile. BUT, the summer will NOT end! The temps are in the 90's at 9 AM and it's brutal! Where are you Fall?
Have a great day and I'll see you at the races!!!
