My first long run….post injury!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! I sure am!

Last night was shrimp taco night! While I was prepping everything I noticed the size of this avocado was a total tease! Check out how big the pit is! There was hardly any “meat”!

Instead of weights today, I focused on body weight strength training for my legs. I did a circuit that took about 20 minutes and I was feeling the burn!!

Today was very busy so a quick recap of my lunch:

No for the RUN!!
Today Mike and I did my first long run post injury! A WHOPPING 5 Miles!!

This run was very humbling… it reminded me that running takes hard work, dedication, and passion. We even did some hills!

Here are our stats!

Distance: 5.00 mi
Time: 43:13
Avg Pace: 8:39 min/mi
Avg Speed: 6.9 mph
Elevation Gain: 421 ft
Calories: 509 C
1 8:27.6 1.00 8:28
2 8:26.6 1.00 8:27
3 8:42.2 1.00 8:42
4 8:57.8 1.00 8:58
5 8:39.3 1.00 8:41

There were some hills all through 3 and 4 which made this tricky at the end!
