ten is the magic number

I’ll have to admit, I was less than thrilled to see 10 miles on my training schedule for this weekend.  Just the idea of this long run had me in a funk all morning.  I knew that I just needed to get it over with so that I could enjoy my weekend.

It helped that the sun was shining and the temps were perfectly comfortable- in the high 50’s.  Definitely a beautiful day for a run!  It took me roughly an hour and a half to complete this run- which included some pretty challenging uphills.  This works out to be around a 9 min/mile pace, which I can totally deal with.

Side note- The other day in the car, Macy informed me that her favorite color is “blue like the sky” 🙂 So sweet.  I now have a whole new appreciation and love for the blue sky.

Once again, I indulged in some good eats after my run- animal crackers (a pre and post run favorite of mine), a peanut butter egg, a Blue Moon, and an awesome salad topped with blackened chicken.

So, this is what I look like after 10 long miles.  Do you know what you look like after running 10 miles?  It’s never too late to find out!

  1. Perfect day for it!! Great job!
    I went out around 10am to get it over with as well. Rob was supposed to get me after an hour and a half but was late and I ended up running 12.5. I’m alittle sore and tired.lol
    Let’s try and get out somewhere new and go for a run. I need a change of scenery.

  2. Way to go Rita! I bet you felt great once you were done. I need to go for a run today and will think of you when I want to stop 🙂

  3. I would not have a smile on my face or even be standing if I ran 10 miles….LOL! Good for you Rita!! What a great feeling to reach your goal!

  4. […]  The only problem is that I think I can eat crap like this at every meal now since I have been running a lot.  I think if I keep it up, I better increase my pant size mileage before I start packing on the […]

  5. You look great Rita! My 10 mile picture would have an ambulance in the background!
