After my 1 mile warm up jog over to the high school track, I ran the first mile in 6:31 which was quite a bit faster than I had planned. I have such a hard time holding back when I'm on the track. After my 800 jog I ran the second mile in 6:51 which is right about where I wanted to be for tonight's workout. Another 800 jog and I busted out the last mile in 6:29! I was so happy with that I had to take a picture.
I had Ryan Adams blasting on the Ipod and I was flying! The leg hurt a little but nothing too serious. I had a great time I wish you all could have been there with me.
I snapped a few pictures on the way home of the Oklahoma sunset. SOME people will like it because the sun is blocked out by the clouds. I personally like it better when the sun lights up the entire horizon of a clear sky but to each his (or her) own. It is a beautiful night here, about 65 degrees and very little wind. I think it hit 70 today but I wouldn't know because some genius from our other office decided to schedule a meeting at 3 P.M. so I couldn't sneak out of work early to enjoy the afternoon! Who are these people that would do something like that. Nothing good can happen after 2 P.M.! Doesn't everyone know that? No meetings after 2, it's in the rules somewhere. That time moves up an hour for each 5 degrees about 70 also. It's a mathematical law.
Anyway, things are going much better for me now that the week is almost over. The week really wasn't as bad as I thought but I am still glad it's over.
Rest tomorrow and then it's the Deer Creek Classic 10K, the first race of the triple crown. Can't wait.
Good luck in the Napa marathon RBR. We're all pulling (or pushing) for you!
Thanks for listening
