Wednesday- 3 miles outside, solo
I texted my neighbor early yesterday morning to tell her to run without me. My leg was feeling okay, but I didn’t want to slow her down. Since Josh was working from home I knew I could go running a little later in the day. When it was time to lace up my shoes, I looked down and saw 50 shades of pink ha
That’s 2 pink tops, shoes, and even my bra was a bright neon pink. I guess I was feeling pink yesterday instead of purple.
I started out nice and slow, I just wanted to run what was comfortable and not hurt my leg anymore than what it was on Tuesday. I felt great the whole run, at one point after I got up a hill I just felt like I was cruising. I don’t think I have ever felt that way before. It was awesome. When I got home I looked at my splits and I was blown away!
1 mile: 10:07
2 mile: 7:30
3 mile: 8:30
I had no idea I ran a 7:30 mile! Since I’m still taking it easy since my injury, I haven’t paid too much attention to pace. But it felt so good to see a couple of faster miles in there even though I don’t feel like I was pushing it that hard. It pays to rest and listen to your body and not come back too quick. Just to make sure, I did some more foam rolling when I got home.
I also sported my new headband on the run. It definitely did it’s job and kept me warm. When I have the right gear for winter running I’m more likely to get out there.
Since I ran a bit later, I was starving by the time I got home. I made leftovers from Tuesday night’s dinner, Buffalo chicken wraps. I’m loving Iowa Girl Eats blog. Thanks again Ashley for sharing her blog awhile back!
