I ran this morning - I had wanted to do 10 miles - but only made it 8.8 miles. I took a path that I hadn't taken in a while and by the time I got back to my neighborhood and realized that I still had a little over a mile to make my 10 . . . I just didn't feel like doing an extra loop. ;-( I don't really feel too bad, especially with the bike ride tomorrow. My average pace was 9:56 - I am OK with that.
I took my handheld with me today and thought I would be able to refill it at the beach / or boat launch area near the Lake - this would be somewhere near mile 6. There weren't any bubblers (or water fountains) . . . . I have noticed that in the last couple of years - parks that use to have water . . . no longer have bubblers ;-(
At least there was a vending machine at the boat launch, and I had brought $$'s, so I was able to purchase some Sobe water . . . it was cold and tasted good. Last weekend I ran by a convenience store and took that opportunity to stop to refill with water.
This last week I did 8 x 400 repeats and again was happy with them. The times were a little sporadic - I am clearly not a consistently timed runner - oh well.
Wednesday's 8 X 400 repeat splits - pace. Now if only I could take those paces and run 13 miles at that tempo.
VACATION Day today - I took today off of work, I need to get a new bag for my bike and do a little maintenance on it. I only have one water holder on my bike and really need to carry two water bottles. On my training rides, I usually duck tape the second one to by rack on the back and then use that to refill my regular water bottle - works OK - looks pretty lame. ;-) Who knows - maybe that is what I will do for tomorrow.
I hope everyone has a good running and biking weekend.
