So I had a rather successful first date yesterday afternoon. I was a little bit worried, but it all ended up great.
Said date was with my favourite treadmill at the gym of course–not a guy. lol If my actual dates ended up as good as my runs tend to, then maybe, perhaps, I wouldn’t be single. lol.
I ran 9 miles, my longest run since January 12 (which was 8 miles)…and prior to that the Disneyland Half Marathon in September 2013. It felt pretty damn good, considering I haven’t done any proper long runs in months, nor have I been super diligent in my training with all of that junk that happened in the first few months of the year.
My pacing averaged out at 8:30 min/mile. If I can manage to keep that up for the Fargo Half in a few short weeks, I will be thrilled. I think if I have a good day, I can make that happen. And, even if I don’t…oh well. There are other races where I can train and prove my mettle.
I have two long runs left before Fargo race day–one of them will be during the Winnipeg Police Service Half Marathon Relay (so I will have to run an extra 4 miles on top of my actual leg which is about 6.55 miles), which I am running with a friend. I am looking forward the fun of just running a long run and getting in some miles.
Anyway, enough of my yammering. Happy Monday ya’ll!
