This morning, I woke up with a sore throat and “stuffy” ears. Meh. 😕 But, otherwise, I felt great! 😉 So, I decided to join my TNT team for a long run this morning.
Before we headed out the door, Mal and I “fueled” with our usual breakfast of peanut butter + banana and iced coffees with soy milk.
We each ate a piece of cinnamon-raisin bread and half of a bagel.
Iced coffee was much-needed this morning.
Our team was scheduled to run 16 miles today, but my body just wasn’t ready for it. Usually, after 2-3 miles, my legs warm up and I’m able to truck along for the rest of the run. But, today, it never happened, and I really struggled to keep moving. My body just couldn’t do the full 16 miles, so I ran 8 miles and called it quits for the day.
- Mile 1: 9:27
- Mile 2: 9:10
- Mile 3: 8:59
- Mile 4: 9:24
- Mile 5: 9:29
- Mile 6: 9:22
- Mile 7: 9:11
- Mile 8: 9:32
I was a little bummed that I couldn’t make it the whole way, but I didn’t want to push it. I’m sick of being sick, so 8 miles was plenty for today.
After our team run, we were treated to Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and bagels! 😀
Mmm… bagels. I immediately gobbled one up with cream cheese.
We also received $5 D&D gift cards for our participation today. Sweet!
Mal and I are off to run a zillion errands, but we have nothing on the agenda for tonight. Thank goodness. We both need some R & R.
Enjoy the day, folks! 😎
