How To Get Haute Running Hair
1. Drink a lot of this
2. Throw on your running sneaks and pound out mileage
3. The Result
Fracking disgusting. Yes, I know. You should have seen it before hand. Oh wait, you can.
Ewwwwwwwwww. Wait…one more
Running + cloudy misty weather + sweat = total nastiness.
Today’s Run: 17.25 miles (in the HOT PINKS), rolling hills mixed to the beach and then a few slow climbs, 2:26, avg pace 8:28.
I started with a loop around my hood. I then headed through the valley and out the beach. Around 13.5 I realized my cell phone was trashed and had a slight freak out moment about how I would call to get a ride home. At mile 15 I found a pay phone. I took it back to 1985 and called home collect. At first LD thought I was calling from jail. Nice. Asked the fam to pick me up at a local Starbucks and finished my run.
It was NOT easy and my legs were DONE. And then there was coffee…and breakfast.
SO STOKED on today’s run. Not only was the weather absolutely poifect but I was able to finish at my goal training pace! When I found myself going a little faster than I should have been I stopped, took a sip of water and slow it down. I am really trying to work on keeping my long runs at 30-45 seconds SLOWER than race pace. I am hoping this will help prevent injuries and have me ready to persevere.

Thank goodness it turned out to be a VERY SMALL RACE. It was a bit of a gong show but we pulled it off. Once I can get some photos uploaded I will fill you in!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
