Rainy Day Running

Today's workout:

9.5 miles on the TM/ 1:12:15

I was prepared to run outside but the pouring down ran shoved me inside!  I do love my treadmill running but mentally I wanted to hit the pavement.  I have an amazing group of friends at my YMCA and once I saw them it was game on!  I set my incline to 1% and started out running 7.5/ 8 minute mile pace.  After 20 minutes I increased my pace to 7.7 and stayed there for 10 minutes then increased speed again and again until my last mile was a 6:39.  It was a total sweat fest and felt great!! 

My mom had text me while I was running and asked if I needed to go to Costco!! Sometimes I think she is psychic!! I ran home showered quickly then we were off to one of my favorite places to shop.   

We always seem to end up at Costco with our carts full on rainy days, go figure!  We had a delicious lunch at California Pizza Kitchen before heading into to Costco.  I think I found my all time favorite salad EVER!

It was amazing!! Field greens, spinach, warm caramelized peaches, toasted pecans, dried cranberries, red onions, gorgonzola cheese and I had it topped with sautéed salmon and white balsamic vinaigrette on the side!!!  Wow, I was in heaven! I highly recommend it.

How do you like to refuel after running?

Happy Running!
