It was hoppin' today on the Greenway- bikers, runners, walkers, a lot of people with their pets... and the occasional illegal golf cart. My partner started mentioning only doing 7 or 8 once we got to mile 3. No way I was having any of that!! I was doing 10!!!! So, I made a deal with her that she could just walk starting at mile 4 and I would keep going to mile 5 and turn around. She agreed- hurray! Miles 6-8 seemed to take forever. We had already covered most of the gossip and chit chat during the first miles or during the 6 mile run we had on Wednesday. Peace and quiet is sometimes nice. I got to mile 9 and told her I was going for it. I picked up the pace and finished strong which I was very happy about. Overall, a great run. I got some more sun, enjoyed a beautiful morning, and even saw a couple work friends out on the trails.
I also got to road test a new Adidas sports bra which was awesome!! I think it is my favorite yet- and on sale at the Adidas outlet for $9.95 each! I might head back and get every color they have (such a Tiffany thing to do). I am becoming more and more a fan of the Adidas gear- cute, functional, and a good deal at the outlet. Wooohooo!!
Hope everyone else's training is going well... I have been following the blogs :)
