Double Shot Day!

Today I woke up and felt like I had just closed my eyes.  On top of being exhausted it was pouring down rain and cold here today!  I got my little guys up, fed and ready for school and we headed out the door.  On the way to school my old son asked me if we could play lacrosse after school and my little guy chimed in and said "yea mom you are the best coach and lacrosse player".  That conversation and a little Starbucks were exactly what I needed to wake me up and realize how lucky I am!

I sent a text to my best buddy and running partner to see what she had on tap and if she was running on the TM  today.  I had a 10 miler and since it was POURING rain I was heading to the Y for my miles.  She agreed to meet me there and we got our run on!  I have a big problem with sticking to my "easy" run pace while running on the TM.  I just watch the numbers and time tick by instead of just running and enjoying the pace.  Thank goodness Angel met me today because the miles flew by and we got to chit-chat the whole time...Well, mostly I talked and she tried to breathe because she was running some KILLER hills today!  So I ended my run with pushing the pace for my last are my splits:

 Miles 1...8:12

Miles 2-3...8:06                                                                                                                             

Mile 4...8:00

Mile 5-7...7:47

Mile 8...7:35

Mile 9...7:24

Mile 10...6:48 

I followed up my run with some foam rolling and medicine ball rolls.

Any coffee drinkers out there? What is your favorite coffee drink?

Happy Running!


  1. Can we get the y to install a Starbucks machine by the TMs?
