Wednesday (18,384 steps) - SO.SORE. allll day. I don't know why, it's not like I haven't been doing strength/core for months/years. Either way, run club in Boulder was definitely a struggle. As I predicted, we ended up going up Bear and down Skunk. A ran with me until we hit the road on the way down. It was interesting that as awful as I felt for most of this run that I still set some segment PR's. Crazy.
Saturday (22,222 steps) - First - my 11 year anniversary of when I quit smoking. ELEVEN YEARS.
Sunday (15,026 steps) - Last RMRR race of the year... at Wash Park again. I had finally gotten a fantastic night's sleep, but I was still tired. A and I both opted for bare legs and it was pretty chilly, especially standing around at the start. My predicted time was somewhere around 9:35, but I knew there was no way that was going to happen. I've been really tired and unmotivated, so I planned intervals again. Pretty pleased that I was able to manage right around a 10mm pace for the 4.5 miles (two road inner loops).
Garmin time - 45:35
Garmin distance - 4.54 miles
Mile 1 - 9:38
Mile 2 - 10:13
Mile 3 - 10:23
Mile 4 - 10:08
Mile 4.5 - 9:42
|I wonder if A is smiling because she was able to blaze right by me... I'm guessing yes.|
Such a fun night with all my favorite people in one place! Like last year, I managed to not take any pictures, and I think I was only IN a handful, thanks to Jen.

Monday (13,721 steps) - Left work early because A had a dentist appointment. Headed over to Runners Roost Stapleton for the first time on a Monday since the store opened earlier this year. Got to see fellow teammates Holly & Bill working, and Othman showed up right before the run, and we got to share some miles.
