Don't believe me? Last weekend I took 1 hour and 40 minutes to crawl 8 miles. This past weekend I did 9 miles in 1 hour and 46 minutes. That's an 11:40 minutes per mile.
That's my glamorous Garmin as I stick my legs in the ice cold water in our swimming pool. Real runners go ice bath. Lazy runners just sit by their freezing pool for a few minutes.
My Italian stallion husband parked his legs in the pool, too. I'd call him lazy for it except he ran those 9 miles with me carrying a water bottle for me and periodically saying encouraging stuff. He'd like it noted that he was running despite a heinous blister that was developing. I'd like it noted that it was really nice of him to run with me. Dude runs way faster than me so just the fact that he had to do my slow crawl for 9 miles is a testament to his love.
|The 9 miles were clearly done by this point. You can tell by the smiles. You can also tell what a photo taking pro I am by the stupid cord to my headphones that was still attached to the phone while I was taking the picture. Genius!|
|Keeping it classy walking down the street barefoot post run. He'd like it noted the blister really hurt. I'd like it noted we are officially The Clampetts.|
|Note to self: This camera angle ain't great. I expect better from that kid. She's 9 now. She needs to act like it. Amateur.|
