My brick run was optional but I was feeling good so I took off with my teammate Pam. We were supposed to go out and back along the river for 15 minutes and we hit our turnaround point before I knew it. All in all, a good night of hill repeats and a great brick!
I had an optional rest day today, but since I won’t have time to get my run in tomorrow I decided to do it today. I headed out to Baker Park for the first time this year for a 5 mile run. This probably wasn’t my smartest decision since the pathway along the river here is hilly. I just sucked it up and made peace with the fact that this run wouldn’t be speedy. At least it was gorgeous out and warm! As I was coming down the final big hill with one mile left to go I looked down…just a little too late…and saw a snake!! It was just a little itty bitty snake, but it still scared the crap out of me and I jumped and screamed like a total girl. Yeah, that was enough incentive to get me to pick up the pace for the last mile back!
