My Behind

Yesterday's Run: Road; 53 degrees. 7 miles; Splits: 9:13; 9:15; 9:15; 9:26; 9:18; 9:17; 9:04; 1:04:48; 9:15 per mile average pace.

If my title has you expecting an ass shot of me, you're out of luck. Trust me, I have no ass to speak of, so you're not missing anything.
I'm behind in my half training and I'm behind in reading your blogs. It's tax season, my wonderful wife is working 7 days a week, so I have extra parental responsibilities and less free time. That's my disclaimer.
Yesterday's run was dedicated to Jill at
onelittletrigirl.wordpress.com
Please go tell her I told you to say "Hi."
My run couldn't have gone any better. Once I got past my left brain trying to convince me I was tired and should quit halfway through, I was fine. Except for temporarily getting lost running down a "court" that led to two house's driveways. My splits were very consistent (See above), and I surprised myself by averaging a 9:15 pace. That was totally unexpected, since I had such difficulty with my road run a few days ago. I even conquered "Hell Hill." I ran for 7 miles, and think I could have run a half marathon distance yesterday if I wanted to push myself. I'm sure my split times would have increased, but so what? Back to P.T. today. I'll update you later or tomorrow about that.

You have inspired a new plan! I'll be posting it later today so stay tuned. Seriously, pat yourself on the back (but not too hard, you might break your arm) because if you hadn't said you would run for me, I might not have thought of it!

THANKS :)

Awesome run!

I thought of you today - my mom got some kinesio tape from a PT several months ago. Have you heard of it and/or does your PT use it? I was having awful piriformis pain (in addition to my ankle sucking right now) and after she taped me, I was almost immediately shocked with the results.

Anyway, just figured you'd know or could ask since you're currently in PT. And hey, it can't hurt to try it if you're hurting! (I made fun of my Mom for her "magic tape" - but it really did help!)

What??? I was expecting the ass shot. What a disappointment. Now I am sad for you, you don't have one? Hmmm, that must make life difficult for you.
Nice dedication for onelittletrail girl. I saw her post and it made her so happy, I think we're all jumping on board too!
Can't wait for the latest PT adventure!

You are definitely making up for lost time. Your splits look great and you are well on your way to that half.

By the way... try this for linking: highlight the word or phrase you want to have a hyperlink attached to. You can do this by double clicking on the word or clicking the mouse and dragging it. Then click the "link" button at the top of the blogger window. Type or paste the web address you want linked. Then hit ok. I hope that helps!

Way to kill Hell Hill!!! Nice splits there, too~ You're getting stronger!! :)

Great run Rick, and hell hill?! Sounds scary! But I suck at hills.. it's the left brain that does most of the work since I'm missing part of my right brain :/

Anais said...

7 miles, you're on a roll!!!

I'm probably going to regret saying this one day, but I actually enjoy hills. Don't quote me on that :P I just love how challenging they are and it makes me feel like I'm doing something other than running for a little bit.
