I don’t know what happened today, but suddenly, I feel like I turned a major corner in my running! This morning’s run was a fast negative split, and it felt great.
Here’s my statistics:
- Duration: 57:57
- Distance: 6.25 miles
- Mile 1: 9:41
- Mile 2: 9:20
- Mile 3: 9:33
- Mile 4: 9:08
- Mile 5: 9:00
- Mile 6: 9:18
- Mile 6 – 6.25: 1:57 (a 7:54 pace)
I haven’t fueled up mid-run in a long run in a long time (I usually fuel over 7 miles), but I was feeling pretty hungry before I even left the house. I took half the goo packet around Mile 3 and could definitely feel the energy boost from the glucose.
I jumped into the shower because I only have 40 minutes to get ready for our party! We invited Nate + Kate and Matt + Kath over to watch the British Open.
Our modular couch came in handy! We arranged it so everyone could sit and see the TV. We served a buffet-style lunch off the kitchen countertop. We still need bar stools, but it worked!
The Husband made appetizers of hummus and cucumber slices.
It was really light and refreshing – a perfect summer starter!
My serving from the buffet:
I had a whole wheat wrap with a veggie burger, fruit salad, a regular salad, and chips + salsa. I went back for doubles of the fruit.
I’m quite tired from last night + the run + the party! We’re going to take a walk around the neighborhood, and hopefully it will wake me up a bit.
Anyone else experiencing a sudden burst of energy in their workouts? Isn’t it nice?
I had one today too! Last wednesday I ran a horrible 7miles, but I did 7 again today and it went swimmingly! Must be something in the air 🙂
