Had a great dinner, relaxed for a bit and it was time to RUN.. Muscle Man moved the treadmill I started my DVR of "House" and set out.
- SIDEBAR: I love watching House although some of the story lines are a bit far fetched. This last episode was different but totally entertaining, with a few funny dream sequences, the dance number was my favorite they can really sing. Below is the cast, although that is the old group, Amber Tamblyn has joined the group, did anyone every watch "Joan of Arcadia"? I liked that show and suddenly it was over. I also liked her in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies, yep I love mindless girly movies. I couldn't help but wonder if Hugh Laurie has ever run a Marathon?? He looks pretty darn fit. I looked him up HERE, but nothing.. Oh well..
Back on and the sub 8's felt too fast so I changed the speed to about 8:20's. The boys played upstairs running circles around me. I would notice the BOREDOM during the commercial breaks. I knew I would be done when the show was about over.
The Last Mile I opted to kick it up and try for sub 8:00's for the run.. FASTER FASTER FASTER the last .25 I was going 6:19 pace, but my sprint was a little too late. I ended the 7 miler at 56:13 and just over 8:00 Miles. SUCCESS!!
Done!!! Dripping in sweat I sat and watched Top Model for a few minutes while LS#1 jogged on the treadmill. I was THIRSTY but did not want to leave him alone so I sped down the stairs, this is when this happened next..
OUCH!! I fell HARD on my left hip and crumpled to the ground. Sweaty socks, carpeted stairs and a 6'0 ungraceful oaf don't mix. All the glory of my speedy run vanished and confirmation that I am a big DOOF returned ;) Today my hip hurts a little, I hope I did not do much damage.
- We have all had injuries on the Run. Tell me about your "Life Injuries" or "That could have been bad moments" things that may have sidelined you (or almost) from running but did not happen on the Run.
- How do you pass the time while on the Treadmill?
