And after the run, I could still smile. Such a success!
|Still standing...a good sign!|
|If I can smile I'll live!|
It was my second 20 mile run, and this one was much easier. It's true that these long runs are so important for your confidence. The treadmill only runs on a 99 minute cycle, so I split the run into 2 parts, for a total of 3 hours, 18 minutes. I was hoping for negative splits, but didn't quite make it. Still happy overall. I went slow enough to only need one walk break for a minute around 16 miles.
I could have sworn there was a granola bar in the car, so after a quick search that left me empty handed (well, I did find 2 saltine crackers-yes, I ate them) I stopped off to grab something to eat. I can't remember being that hungry EVER. Tried a new protein bar. Tasted great, but that may have been because I just ran 20 miles....
Instead of spending the rest of the day watching bad television and eating, I was over at the new house scrubbing floor and hauling wood. I know, I really know how to live it up. When I promised hubs I would be fine to do work after my 20 mile run I must have been crazy. Or high.
If you notice in my close up picture at the top of the page....I'm wearing make-up. I promise I didn't wake up and put on eyeliner before the gym. But, I have a confession. I don't even OWN make-up remover. I just shower, some of it comes off, and then I moisturize and it disappears. I know how bad it is, plus it looks horrible when I'm sweaty. But I'm just that lazy!
Do you wear make-up every day? Remove it each night?
I only put on make-up a couple of times each week. For the record, I do wash my face. Just the removing of the make-up seems like such a mission to me.
Any special Labor Day plans?
We're hoping to hike with some friends tomorrow--but nasty weather might prevent that. We were going to hike to a lake, but I won't be swimming if there is a lot of lightning!
