Saturday's long run was actually surprisingly good. Friday night, I went out for sushi and a movie with a few girl friends and didn't get home and in bed until midnight. Needless to say, it didn't take much convincing from Dan to not get up at 4am for my run. Instead, I enjoyed a morning of track with Emme,
|2nd in the 400|
|4th in the 200 (with her shoe untied)|
|all black in the middle (we cut off his hair)|
his team won both games they played
I'm not sure that I've ever run so far, so late in the day. I don't think that I had fueled very well throughout the day and by the end of my run, I could tell that my body was feeling pretty sluggish. Other than that, though, it all went pretty well. I didn't really have any pace goals, just a nice and easy run, without much looking at my watch. The easy part, happened mostly, but I couldn't help checking out my splits every time 'Ol Gertie buzzed for another mile.
If nothing else, it was wonderful to be running in the sunshine and just really enjoying myself.
