This morning I woke up at 6 am and headed out for a 5 mile pace run!!! Today is the beginning of our so called vacation! I wanted to start it off with a good run! The weather was decent 69 degrees and 90% humidity!! I ran 5 miles with an average pace of 8:42. I felt really good running! On my program I was suppose to run 5 miles at race pace. So if I want to run my marathon in 4 hours, I need to run a 9:09 pace. So I ran 8:42 pace and was not really that tired!! So am wondering if I should go faster on my pace runs. I thought pace runs were supppose to be really challenging. I don't know I'll just keep running.
After my run my hubby and our nephew wanted to go mountain biking. So being an overachiever like I am I said yes!! So we headed to Erwin Park in McKinney and rode a 8 mile mountain bike loop! These running legs are not use to mountain biking! I haven't biked since last summer! Mountain biking is a really good muscle builder! I think I'd you were to do that 2-3 times a week you would be really strong!! So now after all that I'm tired. We are leaving in about two hours for Great Wolf Lodge!! Nice rest and relaxation!!!
