“Long” run for the week done!
Since I am heading up to Reno early tomorrow for Page’s wedding, I decided to get my long run done early so I don’t have to worry about rushing around tomorrow morning and can actually (*gasp*) relax and sleep in a tad. I need my energy for the wedding festivities since I promised the bride I would bring my ”A game” to the wedding.
Kristin, Lauren and I met up at 5:30 for a run and I am so glad it’s done! I had originally wanted to run 14-15 miles today, but decided 13 was just right. As always we had a great run and I love having my girls to run around town with.
Fun flashback fact: 13 is not my longest pre-work run. One time back in September 2009 I ran EIGHTEEN miles before work! I was training for Cowtown Marathon, which was my 3rd BQ attempt. I definitely remember that morning very well.
Speaking of Page’s wedding, I can’t decide what to wear this weekend. I posted this picture on facebook last night and got an overwhelming vote for the black dress, but the green did gain some momentum!
Another fun flashback fact: I just remembered this morning that 3 years ago before my first SFM (and first marathon) I went to a wedding the weekend before and wore the green dress! It might be a day-of decision but any input is welcomed.
And back to the long run… I wore calf compression sleeves today. I have worn them a few times and am considering wearing them during SFM because I am trying to do everything in my power to help aid a quick recovery from that race. I am not sure if they really work or not (I do believe they work after!), but I am willing to try. One thing I am nervous about is they make me hot! This might also be a game day decision. Either way I will have them for after the race.
What is the longest you have run before work?
Green, black or purple dress?
Have you worn compression socks in a race or on a long run? Do you think they help?
Happy Friday friends!
