Well I did the run with the four mini-sprints this morning and let me tell you it didn't feel good. I only ran a few miles and then finished off with four 20-second sprints (2-minute slow breaks in between). I got down to 4:15 pace on one of the sprints but it truly was a struggle from start to finish.
Today was my official first day of vacation and it was a gorgeous (but cold!) day in San Francisco so I took my run to the track!
I beat the sunset tonight by getting in four miles (one less than planned) and this was the first run I did since the marathon 17 days ago. I hit the exact pace I was supposed to -- 10:32 average for all four. The surprising thing was how HARD it was. Considering I thought of four miles as a warm up about a month ago, and that the assigned pace was slower than my average, it was surprising to me how much I struggled tonight.
Apparently The Jesus Lizard show Jon went to was a real hoot. Here's David Yow giving these people what they came for... Like them or not, he still puts on a good show after all these years (from what I'm told).
Okay two weeks have gone by since the marathon and I'm getting pretty antsy to get back out and run with a purpose, so I've nailed down my next fitness goal!! But first a quick catch up on our weekend...
On Saturday we celebrated Crocodile's birthday! We had some of his classmates join us at Peek-a-boo Factory to run around and then eat club sandwiches and cake.
