Muscle Man was on the way home from Eastern WA so I had a little time to spare to get in a run. Buddy Tammy agreed to meet after Little Stud #2 was done napping. 3:30Pm and 85', GULP!! That is HOT for us WA natives.
I packed apples, cheese puffs, extra sippy cups, toys, etc.. anything the Little Studs would need for about an hour. I wore my Nathan Speed 2 Fuel belt, thank goodness I was THIRSTY.
The heat and pushing the stroller combined for a tough few miles...but what I did not realize was how FAST Tammy was going.. This lady is training to BQ at the Victoria Marathon in October and she is a speedy machine. Check out these splits with 90++ pounds of kids and a double jogger..
Mile 1- 8:45
Mile 2- 8:29
Mile 3- 8:32
Mile 4 (slight uphill)- 9:03
Mile 5- 10:19- I kept my watch on for the walking...
.64- 9:49 DYING and done
TOTAL: 5.64 and 9:07 pace
**Stats include walking..
I had to walk, the resistance and heat was really getting to me. My eating, sleep and running schedule has been so OFF and my body was fighting back. I was happy to have Tammy along to take my mind off the fatigue. The boys were great despite a couple outbursts, I packed everything they needed, SCORE MOM POINTS!!
Tammy helped push for a bit, which was nice.... I am VERY READY to get back to Kiddo free long runs. Running with them is much better than the alternative, not running, so I made the most of it. Dripping in sweat I called it a day at 5.5 and we ended with a brisk walk, 6 miles total of running/walking.
