Why is it that I have THE WORST luck when it comes to meeting up with a group to ride or run???
Yesterday my body begged for a day off and I took it. When I got off work, I came home and crashed. I made sure to get to bed early because this week is going to be filled with 4:30 wake ups.
So, as I was saying, my normal Saturday morning running group also does some weekday morning runs at 530 from the same starbucks. I spoke to the girl who leads the group during the week and she said shed be out of town, but I talked to others who said theyd be here this week. So I told them Id meet them today (Tuesday) since Cathy and I werent carpooling today. I pull up at 525 and to my surprise, noone is there. Then 5:30, still noone. FInally at 5:35 I said the heck with it and drove to the gym since I was going to have to shower there anyways.I swear I have like a 50% failure rate for meetups outside of my normal saturday morning runs.
I ended up doing 4 miles on the dreadmill in 35:48 for an average pace of 8:57, and the last mile was my fastest at 7mph(8:34). I HATE THE DREADMILL. I swear it throws my form outta whack and isnt great on my knees. I am going to do my best to stay off it unless the weather is supa bad.
Tonight I will return to the gym for a swim.
One last note: Cathy came across this picture today. OMG That is scary. I hope those that survived are doing ok. That is tragic
