Wednesday (15,274 steps) - Rained. All. Day. Long. For the first time since we have been running out of Boulder, the trail run was modified. We ran a super speedy loop out of the hills. I wore my UD ultra jacket and was pretty bummed that I was soaked to the skin in a matter of minutes.
Thursday (11,398 steps) - Barre with Sienna. Belmar run club! I opted to actually "taper," and just walked the little loop with A and Ang. AND THEN, it turns out the "Second Saturday" folks got me a cake for my birthday!
Friday (7,749 steps) - Up early to shower and head to the airport. No issues with the flight, until we got about an hour in. Then we hit weather and it was the most turbulent ever. Landed on time, but sat on the tarmac for an hour waiting for the flights in front of us to taxi. Airport was the most crowded EVER, and even though I had landed at 12:50, it was almost 2:30 before Lisa picked me up. We stopped at Burger University on the way to her house, where I had a delicious burger, sweet potato fries and a beer.
We sat around at Lisa's house until 6:45, then she dropped me off at Heather's. We immediately started the drive down to Bastrop. It rained the WHOLE TIME. We got to our hotel around 8:30, drinking a beer and watching Catfished until maybe 10, then lights out.
Saturday (38,421 steps) - Wildflower 25K!
Sunday (13,497 steps) - Alarm went off an hour early on accident because I hadn't changed my watch back. Grrr. Helped Ang hand out bibs before running the 5 miler. My predicted pace was 10:35, and I surprised myself when my first mile clicked at a 9:50 pace. Uh oh. Walked through the first aid station, felt pretty good, then felt like I needed a break. Willed myself to run past the 2 mile marker. Another sub 10. Walked up the only hill that I remembered, turn around at the second aid station.
Monday (15,303 steps) - Got up to go to barre, drove to the studio, only to find out that class was cancelled. Wah, I could've used the extra sleep. Run club at New Terrain / North Table! Thanks to the rain that we got last week everything was SO GREEN. After getting in trouble by a ranger last week we had to split the group in half. A wanted to run with Sean, which meant counter-clockwise, and running the steep way. At least the downhill went fine.
