Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was filled with wedding festivities! Ben’s sister got married Saturday night, and the whole day was just awesome. I loved getting to stand by her as she married her now-husband!
Here’s a picture of me and Ben (he was the best man!):
Onto last week’s runs!

- Wednesday- 2 mile walk
- Thursday- 1 mile (10:14), 1.15 mile walk
- Friday- Rest
- Saturday- Rest
- Sunday- 7 miles (1:24:33)
Monday’s Run (10:25 pace)
This run was very typical for a Monday. A nice and easy pace on a cool morning!
Tuesday’s Run (10:36 pace)
Tuesday, I was supposed to run 4 miles. I can’t remember exactly what happened, but I remember my legs and body not feeling very good and also not having a huge amount of time (I was running late for school as usual). For those reasons, I cut it short and went ahead and did 3 miles rather than 4.
Thursday’s Run (10:14 pace)
Anddddd another fail. This was supposed to be 3 miles, and I was pretty wiped. I went out and decided I’d just see how I felt when I got out there. I stopped at one mile, promising that I would do at least 2 on Friday. WELL, Friday came and I slept RIGHT through my alarm. Mega fail 😦 So there’s that.
Saturday’s Run (12:05 pace)
This run was truly horrible. It was so tough! We got home from the wedding around 11 Saturday night, so I ended up getting in bed around midnight. I woke up at 7 AM to run. I was exhausted, my legs were tired, and I was still sluggish from all the yummy food for the wedding! I went into the run planning on running 0.90 miles and walking .10. I figured that would be a great way to give my body and mind a little break but keep myself going. That plan worked up until mile 3 or 4. Somewhere in there I started to crumble. My stomach was hurting quite a bit, and my feet are NOT liking my shoes! That being said, I FINISHED. I told myself that no matter how long it took, I was going to make my watch say 7.00 miles. I seriously considered walking the last 2 miles, but I knew it would take too long and I wanted to go home. I ended up running .15 and walking .05 for the last 2 miles. It isn’t the fastest method, but it helped keep me going.
- Mile 1- 11:48
- Mile 2- 11:33
- Mile 3- 11:51
- Mile 4- 11:35
- Mile 5- 12:07
- Mile 6- 13:24
- Mile 7- 12:15
As you can see, it was a tough run. I came home, drank a bottle of Gatorade, and ate a cinnamon roll (which gave me a headache for the rest of the day- sugary breakfasts after a run seem to be a no-go!).
It was a busy go-go-go weekend, but I loved it. I hope your weekend was full of fun!
Have a great Monday?
