Happy Friday everybody. I got my long run in this morning. 13.2 miles around my neighborhood. The mission was 1 – 1.5 minutes per mile less than goal marathon pace. I managed to average 10:21 per minute. Not bad considering the wind was blowing pretty hard with gust at 15-20 miles. The goal was also 15 miles but I had to cut it a bit short, no biggie, sh*t happens right?
The last mile this song came on and it just cracked me up.
I was going to take a selfie after my long run but then I decided not to. Mainly because a lot of my neighbors were out and some of them may have seen me take a running selfie, or four, in the past. I’m pretty sure they already think I’m a little self involved. There probably thinking this:
I deliberately kept my runs on the slower side this week. If you’ve read my post on slowing down to get faster then you know why. Anyway, its been somewhat of a challenge to keep a slower pace for a few reasons but mainly it’s been mental. I just keep telling myself that it will pay off in the end and I’m sure it will….
I may run slower than a lot of other runners but I did find something that I think I could medal in. In fact, if this were an olympic sport, I’m pretty sure I would own it…
Right? With my OCD and my love of running, can you imagine? I’d rack up more gold medals for the good old USA than you could imagine. It would be amazing.
And now, because it’s Friday, I’ve got a few funnies for you. Some running related, some not but just plain funny, enjoy!
Y’all have an awesome Friday!
