Wednesday: 6 mile bike and 25min of hills. Ran the hills in the Vibrams and OHEMMGEE! Fantabulous! I cannot believe how great it felt running almost barefoot! We'll see if there is any residual new soreness in the legs from running in them once I wake up tomorrow!
Thursday: 4 mile run. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Nicely surprised that the Vibrams workout on the hill yesterday didnt do a darn thing to mah laygs.
Friday: Rest day.
Saturday: Ran with a new group this morning since KW is on hiatus until May 7th. 10:02 average pace? WTF? damn it was HOT out too. But I was pleasantly surprised at that pace in that kind of weather (73deg 87% humidity). I definitely felt it though. The route was only 8 miles, and since they started at 7 and I didnt know anyone really, I got there on time (my friend started early and didnt tell me!!! wwahhhh!), which meant when I finished the 8 mile route, I wanted to hurry up and get on the road to the lake! So 8 miles instead of my normal 10. The group I ran with, a split off of some Houston Fitters, are called the Knuckleheads. I was invited by a friend of mine in the KW group because she wants to play matchmaker. :) She (and one other person I know) thought we would be a great match and so I agreed to meet him. Super good looking! And super nice! And we have a lot in common from running to our jobs to the way we eat (he's Primal/Paleo as well). Unfortunately after the run he asked to go to breakfast but I couldnt go (again I needed to get on the road for the water and jet ski's that awaited me!) They are going to start earlier this coming Saturday so that works for me, and I will get a couple in beforehand if the route is less than 10 miles this coming week. What sucks is that there are no water stops so I ran with a handheld (hate! we are so spoiled with KW!). I stopped off around mile 6 and bought a Powerade Zero to fill it back up and go potty). While I am sorta kinda 'seeing' someone right now...this new guy I met is more up my alley. So we'll see if it goes anywhere! I am DEFINITELY interested. :) I have been for some time now, ready to be in a real live relationship. You know where you can actually be in a solid relationship where everything is mutual. Hard to find someone that I would even consider though. This guy has definite potential. Been a while since I could say that about anyone. I am hoping to be on my A game though so I can run more with him this coming Saturday. :) At the very least, maybe he will make me faster. :)
Sunday: No run.
Monday: 6 miles. Did 7/1's today. I just didnt feel like getting out there to be honest, so I had to make a deal with myself. :O) About 1/2 mile in I realized I forgot my tunes. That part sucked. At least I remembered my 10oz handheld (smaller than the one I used on Saturday); I had frozen Powerade in it last night. Only way to keep it cold for any amount of time in this heat. :)
Stay tuned! I will be posting some pictures from my fantabulous time off! I had such a wonderful weekend!
