After about two glasses of wine we left and took the party back to my house (after stopping at the store and getting a couple more bottles of wine of course). When it was all said and done, I think I ended up drinking over a full bottle by myself.
Which brings me to my long run this morning. Yikes. I was going to meet with my running group whom I haven't run with in months. meet up time was at 8am. Yeah, that didn't happen. I ended up doing the run on my own around 10ish.
Total miles: 8.5/10:59 av. pace
Here are the stats:
Mile 1: 9:18 (140 bpm) huge downhill that I will see again only going up at mile 8 Mile 2: 10:10 (160 bpm)
Mile 3: 12:54 (164 bpm) again huge uphill 381 ft in elevation and almost 1 mile long, I have never been able to run all the way up this bitch
Mile 4: 10:28 (164 bpm) Mile 5: 10:25 (162 bpm) took half a Mocha flavored Cliff gel that was way passed the expiration date. I could practically chew it. Gross. I don't think it helped anyways but at least the nastiness of the gel masked the nastiness of my wine hangover mouth.
Mile 6: 10:09 (164 bpm) Mile 7: 10:16 (166 bpm)
Mile 8: 14:27 (168 bpm)another huge hill only about 300 feet in elevation but always tough at the end of a run, I have never been able to run all the way up this one either. I should turn that into a goal.
Mile .5: 10:29 (170 bpm) I had to run and extra half mile for good measure since I walked up part of those two hills
