Time for a quick post. Last weekend I missed out on my long run, doing a gallbladder / liver purge. This was one of those homeopathic approaches to cleaning up your digestive system. Without getting into details, lets just say that I spent Sunday in bed (as well as part of Mon morning). The good news is I am feeling just fine today. I am not sure if the purge did it's thing, but so far I am doing great.
Feeling better, I got up early this morning for a 4 mile run. I took it easy since I was still not sure how I was after the purge. I did just fine with the following splits:
Mile 1: 11:01
Mile 2: 11:24
Mile 3: 11:32
Mile 4: 11:02
Total: 4.03 miles / 45:19 min / 11:14 min pace
Avg HR: 160 bpm
It felt really good - and the weather was perfect. Sunny skies and 58 degrees.
Corporate 5K: As captain of my Corp 5K team, I was busy today getting race packets together for pickup in time for the Thursday evening event. I had the help from a few fellow runner / team mates stuffing envelopes with 2 t-shirts (the race shirt and our team shirt) race information and race numbers. We had 73 people register for the event! I finally got the food ordered today and have started to review last minute details. It can be hectic, but we have a lot of fun. I am hoping to run into Maddy again - this time with camera in hand!
Still working on Episode 3 - hoping to get it out by the end of the weekend. Older daughter's birthday coming up so that will keep things busy!
