Today was my scheduled long run for marathon training for the inaugural St. Louis Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon! I am excited for my third marathon, and READY for some cooler temperatures that I’m hoping fall will bring.
This morning was another hot and humid run:
I was very proactive, though, in my pace and kept it slow and steady from the get-go. I averaged a 9:43 pace throughout, and doing so made it much easier to do the 8 miles. My leg didn’t bother me at all, going the slower pace. Yay!
But I tell ya what, I was never more ready for a tall glass of ice water than I was when I got back home! Oh so good! You know what else sounds really good right now? Watermelon…mmmmm. I may need to run to the store and get one.
I am done icing now so I’m going to get off here for now. I’ll be back later as soon as I get some pics from my 15-year high school class reunion, which was last night. It was a good time!
