Well, I must admit – starting my day an hour early because of daylight savings time was an added bonus to my Super Sunday.
On tap this morning was 12 easy miles. Two of my girlfriends, Meghan and Lora, were due to meet me around mile 6 and run my final 6 miles with me.
I started off at about 8:30 am and headed north along the waterfront of Bellingham Bay. This is one of my favorite spots to run.
The morning was gray and the sky threatened rain – but thankfully, it held off until the afternoon. Mild temps made for nice running weather! My legs were still a bit heavy and tired from Friday’s marathon pace miles, but overall, no big deal since today was just easy pace miles. I was shooting somewhere in the ballpark of a 9:00 min mile.
I met up with Lora and Meghan, right on schedule. Meghan, however, had to turn back after a couple of miles and we were sad to see her go. She was not feeling herself and had a terrible side stitch that would not go away. (**FEEL BETTER MEGHAN! xo**)
Lora trudged on with me and we made it back in no time. I think we even picked up the pace just a bit at the end.
Overall – here were my miles:
According to Strava – I completed 12.3 miles in 1:46:42 for an average pace of 8:42. I’ll take it — SUPER!!
Four more weeks and Viva LAS VEGAS BABY!
