We had awesome weather here today! It was 72 and sunny! The only downfall was it was pretty breezy. I decided that I should do a longer run today since I have plans all week long! I tried to talk myself into a short run since it was so windy but then I decided to stop being a baby and do my long run!! I did 4 miles like I had planned but it was a killer. Mostly because I went out too fast! I started off feeling great, running about a 9:30 min/mile for the 1st 2 miles. I kept thinking I probably should slow down but I was feeling so good so I didn't! Well after my halfway point, I started feeling very winded and tired. I kept pushing myself and finished the 4 miles without having to stop! Don't remember my exact time and I can't check my Garmin since I left it at my mom's house, but I do remember the final pace ended up being 10:14 min/mile! My last 4 miler last week was 10:45 min/ mile so that's quite a bit faster! And I was much more tired today than I was last week! I'm glad I went ahead and did it though!!
I can't wait for this weekend because I get to go to my lake house!! Yay! We have a lake house in Kentucky on Lake Cumberland and it is just beautiful!! Not sure if I will get to wake board or not, the water is still kinda cold in May. But I will definitely be working on my tan! Does anyone else have any fun plans for Memorial Day weekend??
PS: Who is excited about The Bachelorette tonight?!? I am!!
