Weekend Wrap-up – Week 8 Days 6 & 7: 5/3 Miles – Results

After last week’s triumphs we felt great… that is until our little bundle of joy decided that 3am was an appropriate time to wake up for the day.  The lack of sleep coupled with head colds and still feeling sore from the race weekend led us to the point of 0 motivation to run on Tuesday.  Unfortunately that carried over into Thursday as well and we more or less took the week off until Saturday
WEEK 8 DAY 6 – 5 MILES
After not running all week it felt GREAT to finally be back at it again.  That and our bodies were well rested and the colds mostly passed.  We did stick to the treadmill as we hadn’t mapped out an outdoor 5 mile route yet and were concerned whether or not the little peanut could last the whole run with us.  Shan set out to run as fast as possible.  I was watching Leverage on DVD and just took a nice leisurely trot to ease back into running.

WEEK 8 DAY 7 – 3 MILES
I definitely started the day off wanting to beat the Gazelle but I did push her a bit as she told me she would “be back in 26 minutes” to which I replied “Really? I thought you’d be faster…”.  That certainly got her motivated and she did pretty darn good.  I was happy she chose to run first as it let me know exactly what pace I had to run at to beat her, and I did!  She legitimately did not believe me when I told her that I beat her let alone by more than a couple of seconds.  All in all we had a nice weekend!
How was your weekend?
