Wow, what a weekend.
To being with, our vow renewal went awesome Friday afternoon. We had a great family time all of the day.
One thing I learned…
5 pieces of Pizza Hut pan pizza + 1 milk shake + hot weather + run immediately after = a really hard 4 mile run. 🙂
On to our 5K race yesterday. I really had fun. It was Birmingham in July at 6:00 in the evening and it was just under 80 degrees. At the starting line it began to rain, which felt nice, but into the race a bit, it got very humid and hard to breath.
All in all I had a good race. I didn’t know what to expect since I haven’t run much the past two weeks. But I ended up coming in at 22:04 which is my second best 5K race time, so I am happy with that.
TJ, RS and my friends Neill (@bigBigGeek) and David (@David_Topping) all did really well. Neill and David both set PR’s. On a warm humid evening like yesterday, that is amazing. TJ did incredible. Just shy of his PR, but he has also run 360 miles in the past month. I don’t know how he does it. JR and HM both came to watch and cheer us on. That is always a nice thing and really helps. Thank you both!! My Lovely Wife was home with her bad back, but she kept up with calls and texts. I really missed her there, but I understand why she couldn’t sit there for 2 hours.
Today is normally my long day. After averaging near a 7 minute mile for 5K just 14 hours ago, I may take today off or just go out for a short run later. I haven’t run under an 8 minute mile since May and my legs are feeling it this morning.
Tomorrow starts a new week and hopefully I’ll be going back to my 45 – 55 mileage. Marathon in 7 weeks. Oh my!
