Let’s see, Friday I went to a wine tasting with V and Strawberry E (although she just hung out as she’s running Boston). We sampled lots of delicioso reds and I promptly went to bed at 9 PM. Yup. Totally admit that I am a lame-o.
However, I did get up at 5:30 AM for my 10 mile run. I must say that it was one of the best 10 mile runs EVER. I took a Gu with caffeine prior to the run and it made a big difference. I wasn’t starving by mile 6 like I normally am and I had a little extra pep in my step, so to speak. I even charged up the hill which normally kicks my booty.
After my run I went in to the office, the next term starts tomorrow. And then I did some prep for the impromptu party for Straweberry E’s birthday. The BRA came over and we did it up. Ice cream cake, pizza, wine (for some), Dr. Pepper (for others), water for all. Today is officially Strawberry E’s birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY girl!
Oh, and by the way, Lloyd decided to be a ninja during the party. He’s such a ham.
I made it to the pool today for a little sun and am going to a head out for a trail run in a bit. It’s been a really relaxing weekend thus far.
Life is good.
Great to hear that you had the best 10 miler ever. Happy Sunday! 🙂
Sounds like a fun weekend! And woohoo for Gu…I couldn't have made it through my 10 miler without one, as my energy was dropping off by mile 5-6 but came right back after I took a Gu.
I must be out of the loop….I ddin't know they made it with caffeine in it…
At what run length do you start taking Gu? I'm building up mileage and trying to figure that stuff out. 🙂 Love your blog, congrats on an awesome 10 miles!!
Nice to hear your run went well. I have not tried the gels with caffeine, but have had Cafe flavored Perpetuem and I agree that it can really make a difference.
isnt it great when runs go that smoothly!
i never thought of taking the Gu before the run. great idea! i will try that!
great job on ur run!
What a fun weekend! Ice cream cake, yum!
relaxing weekends and time with friends…that's a superb life
super jealous – what is it like to relax again? HA!
I've never heard of calling someone a "ham" before. I think I'll call my brother that this weekend.
Love your dog 🙂
