It was a good thing I decided to do my long run on Saturday, because we got dumped on on Sunday. It’s a beautiful, white winter wonderland out here. Makes for cold toes and chapped lips, but I love how quiet everything sounds when the city is covered in snow.
Anyhoo, my long run went great. The miles FLEW by. I had the company of two friends, the weather was just right, and we certainly challenged ourselves. Aw, my poor friend Ali, she asked us if she could run with us this Saturday and of course I take her on the most mountainous trail run I could think of. Ha. This is our profile (having a GPS watch is so fun):
Ooof! Half mile warm up, then up up UP we went! Ran 1700 ft of elevation in total. It was a real heart pounder, but we never walked. I thought my legs would be more crazy sore on Sunday than they were, but they weren’t at all. I guess that’s a good thing!
This morning during masters swim, we swam a total of 3600 yrds. It was a speed work kind of day. One of our sets was “40 x 25” at various breathing drills/speeds, and that alone really rocked my arms. My shoulders are definitely sore but I was happy to be back in the pool after last week’s break when I was sick.
I hear it’s suppose to snow again tonight, so that means I might have to hit up the rec center’s indoor track for tomorrow’s tempo workout. Oh joy!
How was your weekend? Are you as happy as I am that the Packers won? :)
