The boss helped me complete my 10 miler today which was awesome since he acted as photographer AND motivator. We left at around 7 and just as we got going
I discovered my watch was dead AGAIN! Seriously??? I just charged it two days ago and it hasn’t been used yet! I’m giving this thing one more chance before I ship it back to Amazon because this is getting beyond ridiculous.
I went back to my room and switched the “new failure” out with “old faithful.”
She hasn’t let me down yet!
Anywho, the boss ran the first two miles with me and then let me drop him. He just walked and listened to music while I ran my little heart out for the next six miles. I picked him back up at around the 8 mile mark and we finished out together.
I completely appreciated the company during that last mile. I picked the pace up at the end and just when I felt like I was going to pass out, I finished . . . with a 6:51 pace
My average pace was actually 9:35 which is a huge improvement over my usual 10 minute miles. The 1:41 time also includes a walked Gu/Water break. Afterwards, we walked to the minimart and got Powerbars and ICE. Here I am just outside the store with the Boss telling me that it’s not embarrassing at all to shop when you’re reeking and dripping with sweat.
So you know what happens next right? Here is my I’m not looking forward to this look
I just stepped in and it’s SO! COLD!!! Ok, ok, I can handle this, I swear . . .
give it a minute and it’s not so bad . . . really
10 down and only 16 more to go
Hope you had a great weekend!
