Check out this 5 miler from Friday:
I can't believe there's a mile that starts with a 7 in there!
My Saturday started off extra early this morning.
Some of my weekend running buddies decided to meet up for 3 miles before the regular Saturday 7 miles that we run. I had a 10 miler on my training plan this weekend anyway, and 10 miles with friends always goes faster than 10 solo miles.
It was a brisk 17 degrees out when I left the house, though it warmed up to a toasty 23 by the time I parked the car, tied my shoes and hit the trails. Three of us ran 3 early miles and went back to the parking lot to meet up with the rest of the group.
I kept having to remind myself that we had already run a few miles, because some miles felt tougher than they normally would have. We had to run a bit past our cars to hit 10 miles, but we weren't about to come up short after waking up early to run. I'm happy with the 9:28 pace we managed to maintain.
Plus it's nice to have a recent double digit run. I think the last time I hit 10 miles was on Thanksgiving.
I drove home and waffled up some cinnamon rolls (because we don't have an oven).
What's your run this weekend?
Do you have a go-to post-long-run meal?
