I had so much fun today!! Coaches lied. They promised us a 20 mile work out and we only went 19.77.
I’m so proud of my walking partner K. We both had personal records — walked farther than we ever had before. Coach offered me the use of his Garmin GPS tracker again and our average pace (stopping the clock for each potty break) was 15:10 minute miles. We actually sped up as we went along – which was the goal.
Unfortunately, I needed to make 3 (or was it 4?) potty stops. Once, an entire team of bikers all dressed alike beat us to the 76 station, so we lost at least 8 minutes off the clock waiting our turn. Consequently, our overall time wasn’t as good as I would have hoped. Pace with the breaks included was only 16.439 minute miles. Damn.
What I’m I saying? It was fantastic.
I learned that Chocolate Gu tastes great, gives me a nice chatty buzz, but I’m thinking it’s a little more of a diuretic than I actually want in my life right now. Enough said.
When I got home, Andy had the griddle ready. He made pancakes right after he nursed my knee. I’m the luckiest girl alive.
