It’s Saturday, so its long run day. We ran along the Ventura River today, a 10 mile up and back down. The workout was 2 miles easy, 3 miles at half marathon pace, 1 mile easy, 3 miles at half marathon pace, and the last mile easy. I think this was the hardest effort I’ve done on an uphill. I’m getting better here and look forward to doing it again.
I use Final Surge for my training and one thing I love is the ability to look a different parts of a workout…and to get summaries. Here is a bit of data:
First race pace segment (miles 3-5)
Second race pace segment (miles 6-9)
After our run, we (Scott, Megan, and me) went out to breakfast. By the time we actually ate, we could have called it lunch. This is typical for a Saturday.
Scott was then off to a Rams football game. Megan and I talked about seeing a movie but couldn’t find one. In honor of #nationaldogday we gave the chihuahuas baths… they would have preferred treats. She went home and I started looking at the hallway that I have been ignoring. (I’ve been removing 100 years of old paint from the trim, so that we can eventually paint).
Yesterday I did some hand sanding. Today I decided to make some progress with the random orbital sander. This works for large flat pieces and I’ll be using smaller sanders later. So, 30 minutes of taping plastic over doorways. Just over an hour of actual sanding, followed by about 45 minutes of cleaning up the mess. I think I’ve been putting off the project because sanding is so damn messy!
Then a shower. And now I will sit down with a glass of wine and begin reading a new book.
Happy Saturday everyone. I’m thankful that I could do all this today!
How was your Saturday?
