The good news...this run felt great! I made sure to keep my pace around 11:30. The first 7 miles were fabulous! Around mile 7 I started getting pretty tired but I made it!
The route was one of my favorite ones. It's in the country and so we saw lots of cow pastures with cows in them. The cows looked at us like we were crazy...especially when we yelled "Good morning" to them lol!
We also had to run by the same house three times...and there was a dog there. Luckily the owner was sitting in her garage and kept the dog from attacking us but he barked at us like crazy! He didn't look like a mean dog but you never know.
And I know you are wondering about the pecans right? Part of the route was on a road with lots of Pecan trees...and all of a sudden pecans started falling onto the road! Luckily we didn't get hit in the head by one but we were nervous lol!
I also tried a new gel today...2nd Surge Gel which came in my Kona Kase this month. I will be doing a review of the Kona Kase soon so stay tuned for that!
The gel was a chocolate flavor. It was so good! I loved that it had all natural ingredients and protein in it. I may be switching to these because I really liked it!
Overall this run was great! I had a blast running with Paige and catching up! My hip was pretty sore after the run but I iced it, rolled, and took some Aleve and it seemed to help. Next week's long run is 16 miles...yikes!!!! ;-)
Tonight my two sisters are coming into town!!! It was Christy's birthday last Thursday and my birthday is this Thursday so we are celebrating both of them tonight by going out to dinner! I'm excited! :-)
QOTD: What are some interesting things you see on your run routes?
