Rest is Gr8

Stats for 4/28
4.01 miles
Time- 35:59
Pace- 8:59
Run with Shelby, sore knees from running 13 miles the day before.

I DO NOT like to miss the runs on my training plan, so with high hopes of making up the 4 miler I missed on vacation, I set out with Shelby by my side. I QUICKLY realized why my training plan gives a day of rest after a LONG run...I felt great while running the 13 miles, but could feel my knees ache the next day. Thankfully Shelby did not mind slowing the pace, the weather was mild and we only had to do 4 miles. Easy run and CHECK!! I will take today OFF and not stress about making up any mileage.

I have seen the 8's going around a few Blogs and it looked like fun so here goes (Sorry no fun photos or anything I am a little short on time today).

I am sad to be done with vacation, but very happy to be back to the Bloggy world :)

Thanks for finding me on Facebook. Now I can pelt you with cream pies and bacon double cheese burgers. Stupid but fun. :D

I'm glad you're taking a day off to rest.

Our couch cushions usually turn into boats or castles. A motor home... now that sounds fun!

I watch a lot of the same shows... I've never heard of the The Strongest Man Competitions. I'll have to look for it!

Well, I couldn't do that pace with or without a 13 mile run the day before - nicely done! :)
