I got my 18 miler done Sat morning - nice and early. Thank Sweet Baby Jesus for the overcast weather here. Nothing to report on the run really. I remember looking at Big G several times and thinking "holy shiz, I'm way too slow." Then I would speed it up a bit. But by the time I looked at Big G again, I was slow again. I also thought I would pick up the pace on the way back. But once I turned around, I realized I was going against the wind. Overall, not bad - 2 hours; 55 mins. That's about a 9:45 pace. Like I said, I don't remember much about the run - I was totally zone out. I think I need to zone out, so this is a good thing.
Of course I had to hurry and get ready after the run to meet my girlfriend for a fun girls day. I had a quick recovery shake (not really shake, but chocolate soy milk with frozen banana), showered and headed to her house. I was still zoned out, like a space cadet. We went to lunch at my fav place - The Old Vine Cafe. I had some sangria, which made me even more loopy. But it was fun. Then we hit the mall and Target. Went back to her house, made the BEST sangria EVAH... and got even sillier. Perfect Girls Day, with a new pair of shoes to boot. (I hate when people say "to boot.")
I love not working on Fridays. Being a woman of leisure is awesome!
