Ran outside -
harder effort, mostly flat with a couple small hills
Man, I felt good running today. I ran 1o miles in 1:14 and then a cool down mile and a half in 11 minutes.
I don’t know if it was taking a rest day yesterday, eating an energy bar beforehand, the lack of humidity or the new energy supplement (sounds a little kooky, I know) I was sent that I tried today, but it felt good to run hard.
Just because it was a great run doesn’t mean it wasn’t hard: I kept telling myself to “Get uncomfortable” and “Don’t fall back into comfortable”.
By the way, reader Marlena alerted me about the ActiveGearUp (the company formerly known as Prince Schwaggle) deal on Pro Compression: 50% off! Check it out here.
Speaking of Pro Compression, they are sponsoring me to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon this Sunday, and I’ll be at their expo booth #336 Saturday afternoon around 2pm hanging out. (The expo is at the Sands Convention Center.)
So if you’re in town, come by, say hi and make me feel like less of a loser than I normally am. thanks
Last year I ran the race and got pretty stressed out over the lack of corral enforcement so this year I’m going to run purely for fun. It will be my last and 15th marathon of the year so to make sure it’s just a fun run, I’m running in costume… my favorite thing to do!
Now I just have to make the darn thing…
