Second run complete. 10 miles. 1:48: 44 (average 10:52 min/mile). Thanks to Marc and Amanda for joining me for this run.
We started out with a 5 mile loop around one of my favorite greenways. After a brief bathroom/water/stretching/Gu break, we took off down another part of the greenway.
As we started going through the two tunnels to another section of the greenway, I found a little surprise that Amanda had set up for me.
When I saw the first one, I had decided to walk that short but steep hill. I laughed, because I figured one of the nearby high school track teams had been leaving messages for each other. But then I got to the next tunnel.
It says “Keep Going” and has a hopscotch with 35 on it.
Have I ever told you how awesome Amanda is? She drove to a different part of the park early to write it on the greenway with chalk. Best part, I’m running there tomorrow so I’ll see it again!
Fortunately the rain held off for these runs. Had a little drizzle in the first run, but it was very light. But it was really warm, especially for December. I had a few more walk breaks this run and walked any small hills.
The park where we ran has a giant tree decorated for Christmas. So, of course we had to get a picture in front of the tree!
After the run, I went home and made a little dinner. Then I had a 60 minute massage scheduled. Really glad I had that set up.
Banana about an hour before I left for the second run.
Salt packet and Mocha Cliff Shot and some sips of Pedialyte before the run.
Salt packet and Peanut Butter Gu and some more Pedialyte at the break.
Chicken broth after finishing 10 miles.
More chocolate milk.
Baked salmon and broccoli au gratin rice for dinner with a small Coke and some nuun.
Couple candy cane oreo type cookies for dessert and water and a small ginger ale.
