A faster trail run and PRO Compression leggings

I am at 555.5 miles for the year. 5 is my favorite number, so I love this.

Our group was a little different than usual this morning, and for some reason, a little faster. We each had moments of leading/pushing the group. Towards the end we had even caught up to the lead pack.

Generally we do this run at a 9:30 pace, but when I checked my Garmin at the end today, we averaged an 8:57 pace. On trails. With hills. I definitely felt like I was working hard, but I didn't feel like I was trying to do anything I wasn't capable of.

I wore my new shoes for their longest run yet, and I am really liking them! They're lighter than most of my other shoes and they are super comfortable.

Buddy helped me check out my splits when I got home.

My pants are fully embedded with Buddy's hair.

Speaking of pants, I have been coveting these PRO Compression leggings since I heard about them.

But, since I'm not exactly lacking in running gear, I haven't been able to validate the $80 price tag. I happened to be staring longingly looking at them last night and they were on sale - $56. Still pricey, but tempting. After a quick search, I found a coupon code that was expiring last night.for $20 off any purchase over $50.

Long story short, I have some new leggings headed my way. :)

We took Buddy to the dog park for a while so he could explore (he doesn't really play with other dogs) and run around. I think he's a little tired now.

What are you up to this weekend?
