Hadn't run a single step all week. So when Wendy invited me to run 13 miles with her and Stephanie starting at 6am, I happily accepted.
We ran on MCT from the Canyon Rd bathroom in PG to Orem. I picked up the pace a tad on the way back, stopping to gu and drinking at the fountains. Quads still a bit tight.
AP: 9:57 (10:24, 10:20, 9:56, 9:56, 10:13, 10:28, 10:24, 9:48, 9:34, 9:30, 9:35, 9:28).
Foam roll and stretch.
***I am so slow these days! I seriously need to loose these 10-12 lbs, get more sleep, eat healthier, do some core strengthening exercise. I am back at the level I was when I first started running 10 years ago. Back then my goal was to be able to run a 10 min mile. It took me over a year to reach that goal. My first marathon in SG 2005 was 4:38. Now, I need to run 9:55 AP at SGM in order to BQ. I know it's not going to happen. But I can work at it over the next 6-9 months or even a year. Right now, my priority is my hubby. Racing needs to take a backseat and I am totally at peace with it!
As for reciting the Living Christ, I have the last three paragraphs left. I am certain that I'll have the whole thing memorized before I turn 60 next month! :)
Best part of the day was watching (with hubby) BYU beat Boise State, another nail-biting last min. miracle pass topped off with an interception TD. Disappointed though at one of our RMs who got a personal foul...what's the matter with my Poly boy?
