Weekend Recap

Saturday I set out on a run that I have wanted to take for a long time. The  run goes from my office in Issaqauh to Redmond, I figured it would be close to 9 miles. The day was beautiful for Washington mid 60s. I carried my water as I knew that there would be no stops. It started out ehh, but that is pretty normal for the first 3 miles, then I felt like I hit my stride from 3-6 and after that well lets just miserable. I was thankful for the water I carried and was surprised that it didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. My average pace was 13:39 for 8.75 miles. I want to blame it on the gravel trail I ran on and on the weather but I don't know it could have just been me over confident. When I reached the meeting spot the temperature read out at 67 degrees on the warmest run this year.

Sunday - Happy Easter!  My daughter woke up at 6:30AM all ready to hunt for eggs and to make sure the Easter bunny had stopped by.  Let just say that made me extremely tired for the rest of the day.  After our Easter dinner, I decided I should hit the treadmill and knock out a few miles. I ran 3.25 doing intervals between 5mph and 6mph per quarter lap. It felt great to get my legs moving after yesterdays bomb of a run.

Not the best picture but I tested out my outfit for the half marathon. I actually wore it the past two runs to make sure that it was right and I am really happy with it.


  1. Cute outfit! GOOD JOB getting out there and doing those extra 3 miles after your "bomb" run! : )

  2. Great job on the run on Saturday Jen.
    I hear you on the weather, my terrible run yesterday was at 80 degrees. Probable warmer in the heart of the city where I ran.

    Thank you for your sweet comment on yesterday's post!

  3. good job and great outfit!
