Since it's so hot in the summertime my long runs consist of 10K's. I like to keep my base at about 6 miles so when it's time to start training again I don't have to start all over.
This past Saturday my friend Jenny came to run with me! I love running with Jenny! We run the same pace and we both LOVE to talk when we are running! It makes the run go by so fast!
We ran my favorite route that leads us to downtown. The weather was perfect! It was 71 degrees and the humidity was only 79%!!! That's unheard of here on the Gulf Coast in the summertime! Usually the humidity is 100%! So it felt great!
About half way through the run we ran by Jenny's husband's work! Of course we had to take a picture and send it to him!
We ran a little ways on and then it was time to turn around and head back! We saw a sweet baby bunny heading back. He didn't seem too scared of us at first but when we got closer he ran back into the bushes. He was so cute!!! We also heard and saw a woodpecker during our run! I love hearing and seeing nature while running!
Before we knew it our run was complete! 6.2 miles was done!!!
I'm very happy with a long run pace in the 9's...especially in the summertime! I have to tell myself that it's ok that I'm slower during the summer.
After the run Jenny and I stood in my driveway and talked for another hour lol! You would think we had talked enough during the run! :-) So much fun!
QOTD: Do you like to talk when you're running?
