NC was so much fun!
It was short but SOOO worth it to spend time with old dear friends!!! I have no idea which photos they would want me to share here so I will just say it was amazing. We celebrated their 10th anniversary at Angus Barn (in the wine cellar). It was a big party, but in the end, Josh and I ended up hanging out with K and Dr S until 1 AM just talking. It was shocking and totally fun to be the ones that lasted the longest – ha!!
We then flew back (including a random upgrade to first class from credit card point-related status which was totally unexpected + fun — though it’s not even a 2 hour flight. I SAVORED the legroom and larger snack variety, hahahah).
ANNNNNND we got home from MIA and drove straight to a bday party that lasted from ~1p – 6p!!! Honestly, we basically partied all weekend and it was great. Today is more low key and for once I feel like I have a chance to prep for the week AND get in some downtime.
This is now being planned out by my running coach – I will not post the plans but here’s what actually happened! I didn’t resume strength training yet (this was a post-half-marathon recovery week) but I have it in the plan next week!
M: 3 mi @ 11:00/mi (day after the half, shakeout run). 72F / 83% humidity
T: 5 mi @ 10:13/mi average. 76F / 71% humidity
R: 6.25 mi @ 10:09/mi (6 mi + 2 x 20 sec strides). 70F / 89% humidity
F: 10.75 mi @ 10:10/mi ave in NC in Umstead Park (hilly trails). 62F / 73% humidity. Josh ran with me!! I think mostly to prevent me from getting lost in the woods . . .
S: 3 mi @ 9:58/mi. 65F / 90%.
Total mileage: 28 // Strength: 0!
