This morning came early... well not that early but it sure felt early. Traveling and training really kicked my butt the first half of the week and it all caught up to me last night/this morning. I woke up and immediately had to rush to make it to my annual eye exam on time (made it!). Not a lot of change over the past 10 years - I'm still nearly blind. They don't even make certain contacts in the prescription I need... sad. For the first time ever the optometrist is younger than me; what a strange feeling! But the most thorough I have had in a long time. She fitted me for new contacts and my oh my they feel so much better than whatever I've been wearing for the last year. Yea for good doctors!
I returned home did a little work then headed out for LT run, 8 miles with 4 miles @ 15K pace. This all translates into an 8:20 - 8:42 min/mile for me. I'm happy to report I did not fail! I had some trepidation heading into the run but once I got over my warm-up I was rearing to go.
LT mile 1: 8:38
LT mile 2: 8:27
LT mile 3: 8:22
LT mile 4: 8:20
Yea for good runs that boost the confidence! Next up... 15 miles on Saturday.
And one final item. I want to give a big birthday (3-0) shout out to my girl Jami! Yes, we have the same name but she spells it all wrong ;) Jami I know you stalk my blog to catch up on my life instead of calling. I would too b/c I know I talk way too much. I'm looking forward to celebrating with you on Saturday!!! I'm know it will be a great time just like it is every time we get together. And I'll try not to get you into trouble (drinking wise) but you know it is inevitable when we get together :)
This is a day early but welcome to your 30's girl!
