Sunday workout: attempted 20 miles, bonked at 13
Sunday was supposed to be our longest run to date. I bonked.I cried. I sat in the freaking hot sun and talked about how frustrated I was. Phil picked me up and got me to hammer out a few more miles. We called it. I wasn’t hydrated enough and I ran over 9 miles yesterday, but I cannot figure out why I totally ran out of gas both mentally and physically. This run will get a whole post of its own later.
For now let’s focus on the fun stuff from this weekend.
For Halloween I was going to be a fairy princess, however my costume was WAY too skanky for me so I last minute swapped to plan B. My friend Andrea had the amazing (and easy!) idea for a marathon runner costume so I dressed up as Kara Goucher. While I was dressing up as my idol, SkinnyRunner was meeting her… check it out here. Lucky B.
Halloween in SD is a sh*tshow. There is no other way to put it, so apologies for the crude language.
I was probs the least scandalous lady out last night, although our group was pretty tame. We went for cute, not cooter-showing. We even had a punky bruster!!!
A crazy legit bagpipes and drum duo was rocking out in costume. Every British citizen and girl on the street hit on P-money. It’s cool he deserved the love. Kev, the tall Saudi bought his costume in Saudi Arabia… forreal. He was so authentic that all of the middle easterners LOVED it and took pictures with him all night. He was doing more cross culture peace building than the last 3 presidents combined. They kept asking if he was born in the middle east. He is a 6’5” Irish man from Chicago…
Occupy San Diego did a march which I thought was pretty cool. Have I mentioned I was a politics major, so I love any (nonviolent)activism that comes out of my generation? Warms my little Federalist Paperwrapped heart.
Next weekend will be an unofficial Ragnar meetup while abunch of us girls run the Del Mar Iron Girl 10k. I was peer pressured into this run via Twitter. Nicely done ladies, nicely done.
I’m feeling like I need to drop a few lbs before the holiday season really kicks into gear. Not sure how weight loss and the end of marathon training will play out, but I have a plan…I hear lots of advice against weight loss while marathon training. Thoughts? My recovery month after the Mary is going to be wholly dedicated to weight loss and mental happiness. I’ll outline my master plan ASAP.
