Run: 13 miles in 2:24
Temp when I started running at 5 am= 74 degrees and humid due to monsoon rains yesterday
Number of hand held water bottles drank = 4
Reason I run on the Rillito River trail= water fountains
I knew things would be slow this morning due to the heat, humidity and the fact that I wanted to go so far so I grabbed my camera on the way out to keep myself entertained along the way. I give you photos of my long run run from my neighborhood to the Rillito River trail and back.
|And we are off|
|Cutest house in the neighborhood beside ours of course.|
|Heading towards the 'river'|
|Stop to say hello to the fish in the pond outside a business|
|On the river trail|
|The cool thing about this route is there are a ton of I guess what would be described as public art pieces. Some really comfy concrete recliners.|
|Another bridge, more bridge art|
|Turn around (one of two)|
|Life saving water fountains along the way and bathrooms = runners paradise|
|Saw four lizards this morning.|
|Look at those river rapids.|
Mileage for this week: 31.5 highest mileage week this year. Think it is time to drop it down a bit for next week and then onward towards higher mileage?? How to accomplish this, more days running, twice a days, longer long runs....hmmmm any advice?
Plan for this week.
Monday: xtrain am/ zumba pm
Tuesday: run 6 miles/ muscle pump
Wednesday: xtrain am/ zumba pm
Thursday: run 6 miles/ muscle pump (for real this time...fingers crossed)
Saturday: Saguaro East Loop with Erica aka the marathon slayer (I am a little scared this run is a hilly, hot 8 miles and Erica is kind of a running badass).
Sunday: Nada/ maybe xtrain
My awesome outfit after running. I think hot pink compression really adds something, as does the crazy face.
