Just a short and sweet post hoping today was a good day for you all.
I completed a 13 mile run yesterday morning – such a difference from last week, I could have worn shorts on this run. I ran on the Boise Road again with my buddies Austin and Beth (who, by the way, is officially an animal – she decided to do an extra 4 miles at the end, just for the fun of it. Austin went home with me). The run was good overall, with two minor issues:
- Coyotes were yapping around us, fairly close. It really wasn’t cool, that is my favorite road to run on and it kind of freaked me out. I am over it now. I think.
- I felt like I struggled for every mile on the second half of the run, which I realized later was mostly uphill.
So all in all, a good run. The Achilles tendinitis didn’t flare up, and my long easy run pace was faster than it had been in a while, much closer to where I wanted to be before the injury.
Today I hopped on my bike for a quick 15 miles before all the hustle and bustle of Easter and overeating started. I wanted to ride longer, but just didn’t have the time today. Gorgeous morning riding in a new place, all I wanted to do was explore and ride ride ride. That will have to wait until next weekend, I can’t wait!
