Because it was dark when we started, and I'm afflicted with "navigational deficiency syndrome" I convinced one of my friends to run the route with me using intervals (aka the "Galloway method"). We started with 5:1s but then dropped down to 3:1s when 5 became too much (still running on tired legs). After the 6 mile run I did a lot of stretching (much more than I normally do...which is pretty much little to none) while I waited for other friends to finish...
(6 miles later...legs still feeling strong without my knee brace)
Today was bittersweet. It started off well with my last running adventure with both new & old running friends (that was the "sweet" portion of my day). But then it was time to finish packing and get ready to head back home to FL. Normally when I'm on vacation I get to a point where the "it's time to go home" feelings start surfacing. I start to miss my normal routine and the ability to jump in my car and head anywhere I need to go. But this trip has been different. It's been one activity after another and the time has passed by so quickly that I almost feel like I need a few more days. A few more rest days at the beach with my sisters. A few more early morning runs with friends.

How has your running been so far this year? (I know it's only been 3 days)
Happy New Year! Wow, it looks like a beautiful place to vacation!!!! So far, my running has been going well in the new year except today we are getting totally blasted with a snow and ice storm. :(ReplyDelete
I'm sorry about the snow storm :( hopefully it will pass by quickly so you can hit the road running again soon!Delete
So far running this year has been really great! It always is hard for me to come back from a vacation but once I am home my routines fall into place and that always makes me feel relaxed!ReplyDelete
So glad to hear things are going great!ReplyDelete
