Have you heard the story where I woke up EARLY on a Sunday morning and headed out to tackle my long run before the heat? You haven’t? Well you can read about it here, here, here and here (to name a few).
What? Where you dying to hear about how it went today? Ok ok fine, I’ll give you the abridged version.
Once Upon a Time, there was a girl training for a marathon in the heat of Texas summer. She set out on a Sunday morning for her weekly long run and it went like this:
Miles One to Three: Dark (can’t see) hope I don’t trip AGAIN.
Miles Three to Six: Ho Hum still on the way out looking forward to the back
Miles Six to Nine: Took a Gu and refilled my water bottles
Miles Nine to 12: Sun came out. Wanted to kill myself or stab out my eyeballs in lieu of running
Miles 12 to 15: Focused on the task at hand, getting it D.O.N.E. done!
Here are the splits:
Are you missing pictures of me and my friends in our running gear? Well I didn’t take any pictures today because A) I’m a bad blogger and B) nothing exciting happened. Here is a montage anyway, because I aim to please.
And they all ran happily ever after.
