Donny came with me on my long run on Sunday. I was supposed to do 9 miles but couldn't remember how long that particular route was so we only ended up doing 7.6. Oh well. But during the run, I was feeling pretty good. It was near the end and Donny and I were talking about our plans for the week. I said that I needed to do some speed work, and do you know what he said? He said, "I'll say!" Apparently I was running too slow for his taste.
So yesterday afternoon I headed outside and did about 30 minutes of speed work on my street. I live on a pretty quiet street so it was easy to just go back and forth and not really worry about cars. But it was NOT fun. I was breathing so hard and it was pretty warm so I was drenched in sweat.
I came home and stretched and iced but apparently I over-iced and froze my skin just a little bit... it was really weird because it felt like there was just a little piece of ice attached to my skin, but then I realized it was my skin! Nasty, right? It left a little welt/burn thing.... whoops!
I would have run Saturday but it was another full (but great) day.
I met up with some ladies from church for a 4 mile hike Saturday morning. We went to Fish Canyon in Duarte. The hike ended at a waterfall that would have been great for swimming.
There were sooo many options. I ended up with a carnitas taco from Gringos Tacos and a spam-egg-masubi from Rice Balls of Fire. Donny got the Grilled Cheese Truck so I also picked at his tater tots and mac-and-cheese-grilled-cheese-with pork-kill-me-now-it's-so-good sandwich.
What type of training run do you prefer? Long? Speedy? Easy?
