I did my long run on Saturday because of Easter and other conflicts on Sunday. T and I went for 12, my last long one before my half next weekend. It was hard to know how to dress but I think we hit it right. The miles were pretty painless. At that point the sky was blue and there was not much wind. I had plans of going for a bike ride later but that didn't happen. As we were nearing the end of the run instead of feeling dead and ready to be done like I usually do I started picking up speed. My last mile was 10:02, a good deal faster than the previous miles. I felt great and it gave me some confidence for my half next weekend.
A gorgeous day to be running back in Vermont
Sunday was a 3 mile pace run. I am loving these pace runs and need to keep them up when I am not seeing them on a training schedule. I felt especially good about this one doing it the day after a long run and liking the results. My miles were 9:18, 9:47 and 10:02. Some day I am going to get that third mile in this series under 10! The first 3 are basically uphill - some quite slight but it is a good place to do a pace run.
Yesterday I spent several hours making a purchase which I will share later this week! Jameson helped me out. Today he came for Easter dinner so of course I have some pics of Jax. Some of them Jameson shared with me from a fun time at the beach near his house early on Saturday. Some are when Jax was visiting our house and the cats. He loves it outside because he can be off the leash and run around like crazy but I am not so sure he likes it inside our house. He just wants to play and those darn cats just don't get it.
Just a cute picture.......I mean really! I asked Jameson
if he staged this picture and he said no!
Playing at the beach.
Got to love those ears!
Easter - Jaxon has gone outside and Rocco tentatively tries
out his bed.
He looks like he's about to nod off but he could never do
it. I think he was too afraid he would miss something.
