I made sure to get a good warm up/stretch before Baby Sis got to my house. I also got a quick nursing session in with Baby Boy. It's like he does a fuel up before my long runs as well. So funny. Baby Sis and I got to the running trail and walked for a good warm up. I didn't time the first mile but I'm thinking it was 12:00 minutes or so. I did start timing at mile 2 and I was surprised it was at a 10:59 pace! We kept that pace up until mile 4. I was feeling some stiffening and decided to take some goo. I stopped the clock for bathroom, water and stretch breaks. I let it run for walking breaks. From mile 4 - 5, the wind was brutal and it did affect our time. The pace was more like 12:00 - 13:00. At mile 6, I felt awesome and was in the zone. I took another goo at mile 7.
This is a very stiff Baby Sis:
She did an awesome job! As soon as we got back home, there was a lot of this going on:
I also made a yummy post-run snack. I got this recipe for pumpkin yogurt from another blog. I ate it straight out of the container. There wasn't much left haha:
- 3/4 cup plain non-fat yogurt
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1/2 cup pumpkin flaxseed granola
