11 windy miles

I met up with Jessica at 6am for our wonderful long run. I was feeling very tired and stressed. I had more than one thought of backing out of the run. I definitely ran a little slower today compared to other days. We finished 11 very windy, hilly, and long miles in 2hrs and 3 minutes. Average pace was just under 11 minutes. My Nike app needs to be on my arm band to get the satellite reception for accuracy. I ended up stopping the app about 30 minutes in, since it was not recording the mileage correctly.

After the wonderful miles I headed to Peet’s for some amazing iced coffee.


It tastes better after my long run.

Once I got home the socks went on.


And I had to clean up the house for some company later. One of the families who is buying a pup will be over. Dishes, puppy pen, vacuum, sweep, mop, febreeze. Done. So tired.

A delicious bowl of oatmeal really hit the spot, after all that cleaning.


A little birdie told me that the Nike outlet has a sale on all clearance items. Extra 40% off! I will be heading there before work for some much needed retail therapy.

Do you have a long run or any racing plans this weekend?
