Phew! The last 2 days have truly been something!
As I quickly informed you all yesterday, I made it to 10 miles! It surely didn't feel as effortless as it did before, but I am where I want to be. 12 miles is my goal for next Sunday; however, I would be much satisfied with another 10 miler. I am going to be pretty busy next weekend as well with my cousin's wedding in Lynchburg, VA so if all I can do is 10, no biggie.
Later that evening, Peter and I went to the Legends of Summer Tour, which featured both Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.
We sat about 30 miles away from the stage, but still managed to enjoy ourselves. Honestly, I think I sat in the same area when I saw Nsync there 12 years ago.
We arrived home in the wee hours of the morning due to bad traffic leaving the park. And boy, was it rough waking up! We could not sleep in, but it was because we had to pick up our new puppy!
Alpha came home with us today and has been a very excitable pup. Really...he has been peeing all over the house! But, that's just one of the things we anticipated. I am sure he will get better as time goes on.
Since I was still very exhausted from our late night and early morning with the puppy, it took me a while to get motivated to run. I did one 5k session after lunch and sported a very colorful outfit.
Check out the new Mizuno Wave Riders! Aren't they gorge!? They feel amazing in comparison to previous shoes I have used on road runs!
I also did second round of running this evening. I was joined by my dear friend Ashley on the trail! I do not frequently run with partners...and by that I mean, I NEVER run with anyone. But I have enjoyed both runs I have done with her and we look to try to run with each other once a week now. Tonight, we did a nice 4 miler. That brought me to 7 for the day.
My goal for the week is 30-35 miles. I don't think I'm quite ready to get back to a complete 35 miles just because I am not feeling my normal self quite yet. That and I have another super busy weekend ahead. But I wish you all a successful running week! We got this :)
In the past week, what has been your longest distance?
Have you been to any summer concerts? Would you go to the Legends of the Summer Tour?
Do you prefer running alone, with a partner, or are you indifferent?
