Have you done your Saturday workout yet? I did! Oh yeah. I haven’t been blogging all my runs, but I’ve been following a 10K training plan, and I was due for a long run of 4.0 miles. I tried to squeeze it in last night but didn’t end up leaving until 7:30 PM – so I just did 2.5. But this morning… I was READY.
Pre-run fuel (eaten whilst feeding Henners).
When I set out on my run, I intended to listen to the Pitbull station on Pandora (best running music ever!), but my mom called within the first 0.1 of a mile. It’s really hard to find the time for long conversations nowadays so I didn’t want to pass up an opportunity to chat. The iPhone earbuds have a little speaker on the wire so you can listen and talk, and mom ended up joining me for the entire run (I just hold the phone in my hand – but would love any recommendation for nice carriers). It was awesome! Like having a virtual running buddy to talk with – we gabbed the entire time and the four miles flew by so quickly that I ended up going a little over without even realizing it. I probably looked like an idiot talking to ‘no one’ but who cares.
Now it’s time to round up some real grub. Have an excellent day!
Great job Caitlin! Run buddies are definitely the best way to make a run go faster! Enjoy your day!
