Fly by post tonight because it’s already past my bedtime!
After work Barry and I headed up to Blacksburg to go by the running store so that he could get new shoes. I managed to walk out without buying anything, but it wasn’t easy. Since we were already up in the ‘burg, we decided to run on the Huckleberry Trail. This is the trail I used to run on for almost every run when I was in college and for the first year or so after.
When we got over to the trail there was a group from the running store meeting up for their weekly Wednesday run. They were planning on a mile warm-up, 4 miles at tempo pace, and then a mile cool down. Barry decided to run with them (about 8 people in all, including him) and had a great workout! They did their WARM-UP mile in 7 minutes, holy cow, and then did their tempo miles at or below 6:30 pace, and then a 7:30 mile cool down. So speedy!
I, on the other hand, ran a 4 mile recovery run watch free. I ran by feel, and I think I was a bit below 10 minute pace. My legs were a little tight and sore from yesterday’s track workout, especially my calves, but it felt great to be back on the Huckleberry.
It was a great night for a run. It rained most of the day, but the rain had stopped by this evening. It was nice and cool (mid-50’s) with low humidity. Perfect!
And just because I think they’re cute, here’s a picture of Hank and Scout napping from this weekend.
A minute after I took this picture Scout switched to a new sleeping position.
And she stayed that way for the next hour or so.
What time do you usually go to bed?
10 or 10:30 on weeknights. Sometimes earlier on Friday nights before my long run 🙂
Is there a running group that meets weekly where you live?
If you have pets, do they have a funny way of sleeping?
