I had a great day today. All day I felt really productive and just in a great mood. Even at the end of the day when I was being mentally challenged and then realized that I could have done something 109345098 times faster and easier I just started laughing. Like deliriously laughing so hard. Everyone thought I was crazy but that was just the mood I was in. Like nothing was going to get me down! I think part of it was waking up early and going for a run, part of it was the amazing weather we had today and part of it was because I knew today was Friday, the weekend was ahead and I knew I was running with R4J after work.
R4J and I had a great run. We did a 4 mile loop in her 'hood which was a blast from my past since it was a loop I used to do when I lived in the neighborhood a few years back. Ah, memories! I know I have said it before, and I will continue saying it; I really enjoy running with R4J. The miles seem so effortless and go by so quickly. It is a great way to catch up with someone who you respect, admire and really enjoy their company! We talked a lot about running and our feelings about the KBCM and our training plans for the up comming July 10th 1/2 we are both doing. We both agreed that it was nice to come out of a race knowing that you have another one in a few weeks so the let down isn't too hard. It's like you put so much time, effort and feelings into something for so long and then it's done. Definitely good to set another goal so you don't get too depressed after a race!
And just because I am sure you want to know our splits. Here are the deets!
And just because I didn't get to post them this morning, here are the deets from my morning run with Mr. Annoying Pants, also known as SWP! He was quite the bothersome child this morning. Not wanting to get out of bed and needing to be bribed with a treat, then wanting to chase squirrels and birds and whatever else just not run in a straight line with me. Oh well. I think he is going through his terrible two's a little early.
For some reason my Garmin lap thing was messed up so it has a weird .14 lap in there but oh well. I fixed it after my run and all is right in the world again!
