10 miles is done and done. At 5pm yesterday my dad and I laced up and out we went for about 2 hours of running. I don’t know what it was but the run felt easy and I felt great the entire time. I love when that happens!
And we cut 5 minutes off of our time from Saturday so I’ll take that as a major bonus!
I hope the half feels as easy and comfortable as yesterday did.
To be honest, I’m pretty shocked it felt that easy. After a full day of work I thought my legs would be dragging but surprisingly they weren’t. I ran without my Garmin too – only with my watch. That seemed to help me not analyze my pace constantly and prevented me from feeling like I was going “too slow” like I always do. Maybe I’m onto something here…
When I came home I was greeted with a little package – my compression sleeves came! I got a pair of these.
After my shower I put them on and wore them all night while I slept (it’s okay to wear them that long right?)
Here’s an awkward picture of what they look like:
When I took them off this morning my legs felt like brand new. Well still tired, but they didn’t ache and hurt like they normally do for anything over 9 miles.
I’m off to work for a few hours before running some errands and heading out for the weekend – I’ve got some fun stuff planned this weekend. So I’ll check in on Monday probably.
Have a great weekend!
