Just didn't feel well this week- if it isn't one thing it's another! Monday I made myself motion sick on the elliptical trying to multitask and get some reading done! Ugh! Had a couple nice runs with Griffin in Pisgah early in the mornings - well it's not dark so it isn't too early. Had a migraine Wednesday. Always a pleasure. Got to a spin class finally on Friday - not sure I put a ton of effort into it but it felt good to get up and out the door early. Walked with Grif in the woods Saturday.
Sunday we celebrated our anniversary with a 10-mile road race (my idea!). Not sure what I was thinking- I guess I just wanted to see just how out of shape I had gotten this fall. We went to Concord - the weather was perfect for a race. The entry fee was pretty steep (45 each), but once I saw the shirts I figured oh well- nice shirt and a good workout- and a day trip with my husband! Priceless! The course was pretty and pretty challenging. (Who knew Concord was that pretty?!) I felt good throughout, but rigged the last mile. I was roadkill to three people that I had worked so hard to pass during the 7-9 miles. Bummer. But overall I was pleased with the outcome at 1:22:54. I went in praying I could be near 85 minutes, so was surprised I was well under. The last mile worried me a little- thought I was going to have to walk but I kept it together. Miles: 8:00, 8:25, 8:40, 8:25, 8:23, 8:20, 8:21, 7:54, 7:45, 8:34 (ouch). I don't think I couldve finished a half marathon! haha There were some really good hills, but the second half seemed a lot easier. Greg won- so he won our entry fee back plus 10 dollars! woo-hoo! We had planned to go out to lunch, but immediately felt guilty when thinking about Griffin and hightailed it home to take her out in Pisgah.
Alright week- I don't feel as behind as I thought I was and if I can get it together I may end up running a PR at Lil Rhody and Pie and Glove. Already getting excited for the next half marathon- and then a full. It's a process, and I love it (and my husband of 1 year!) :)
