7 in 70

Yesterday after my run, I spend some time wandering around downtown, then some time at the beach, then we went out to dinner. With all the wandering around, I didn’t drink as much water as usual. Plus, the time at the beach bar and then dinner lately meant that I probably drank more alcohol than water yesterday. I had a few glasses before bed. I still woke up feeling pretty dehydrated, so I didn’t have high hopes for the long run this morning. It went pretty well, though. I didn’t really have a pace in mind when I left. I just took it slow the whole way. I took two walk breaks. One at 3 miles and the other at 5 miles. I had to keep myself from pushing too hard at the end. I managed just about a 10 minute mile pace.

Actual workout

1 mile warmup

7 miles at 9:58 pace

  1. Oh, I feel so bad for you. That time at the beach really is hard on your ability to run. I am glad I only have to contend with sub zero temps, ice, snow, crazy snow plow drivers and the occasional slushy shoe…why do I live in Buffalo? Go Bills.
