Had time just after lunch to get a quick run in. Last run at Altitude.
We had a lull in the middle of the last day of the event, so although I had just eaten a full lunch, I wanted to take advantage of the time. Got dressed in no time, had a quick pit stop and headed out.
Brooks top, Sugoi tights, Lucy skirt, headsweats band and New Balance gloves. I am trying to decide what I will wear for the Mercer Island Half on 3/21, so I am taking the Zoe approach, wearing less clothes knowing that I will heat up fast. It works!
I ran down the hill, was FAST and felt amazing. As I reached the river trail I wondered if the path went the other direction. It ended quickly, so I stopped to take a quick picture. SOOO beautiful! I got my snow fix while in Colorado.
I was not feeling 100% because of lack of sleep, being on my feet a lot of the day, adjusting to altitude and having a hurt stomach. But I did not let the excuses in, I just ran. My right foot has been bothering me, I am not sure if it is the insoles, shoes, or what, but I need to fix it ASAP!! The second half of the run was tough, I had to stop a couple times to respond to work emails, MULTITASKING!! If you are ever in the BEavercreek or Avon area I highly recommend this trail. I was so pumped when I plugged in to see the BQ pace, at altitude!! WOOT!!
-I ran 4 times and snowshoed once.. WIN!
-I lost 4 pounds!! What?? Not sure how that happened but I did. WIN!
-I did not stress about the miles, but I am very excited to ramp up the miles this week. WIN!
-I did not embrace the treadmill, I am not a treadmill runner...but I tried. WIN!
- HAPPY MONDAY! I am taking the day off to be with the family and get in a LONG run while the baby naps. Hope you are having a great one.
