10 miles and Ramblings

On Saturday I ran my first long run after the marathon. 10 miles felt really good! I was able to run the first 5 in 44:30! I was wanting some speed work; so I pushed myself to that uncomfortable pace. I took a little stretch break and took a Gu but I was not able to push out that pace for the next 5 miles. I was also going uphill most of the way back since I was on the Pike. Overall I was happy with the run. I had some goals in my head and was disappointed in my final time of 1:45 but hope it was the hills.

With that being said I am going to go ahead and do the local half marathon on Sunday (Halloween). I have some goals in my head but the #1 goal is to beat 2:32 (my first half). That should be a done deal since at 13.1 during my marathon I was 2:14 for my half way split. I would like to be even quicker than that but we shall see.

I registered for a very important race this Friday. I am doing the Black Cat Chase in Frankfort with my MOM. My mom starting running this summer; she says I inspired her : ) She has been running 3 miles for the past few months and has decided to tackle her first 5K. It is suppose to a real fun race and I am looking forward to running every step with my mom. She is even considering signing up for a half marathon in the Spring.

DVR: Greatest invention ever! Since I am not marathon training right now I am getting in some extra miles on the trainer. My favorite show to watch is Biggest Loser; even though they are hands down the worst cast ever! I also watch Days of Our Lives, Amazing Race, 90210 and chic flicks! Nothing like an hour or so on the trainer to get me to 2010 miles.

GO KRIS! Kris is going to knock out her miles this week. She is awesome. Follow her new blog (linked on the side) as she trains a few ladies for their first half.
