3-Part Run

Welcome to all the new followers!  You humble me with your presence and comments.

I have been busy while away.  My in-laws were here, ADP was home from work for their visit, and I've been running.  I ran on Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and decided to get some extra sleep on Friday morning so I did not run.  Saturday is ADP's day for his long run (more on this another day) so I stayed home and took care of things around here.  On Sunday I ran again.

it was mouthwatering!
Sunday's run was a three part run.  I just was not feeling it, but I did the best I could.  I don't know if it was the vino, food, cake, or lack of long-nights of sleep...
I was up an at 'em at 6:07 a.m..
Training goal:  9 miles at PHMP + 20 sec

Run 1
Miles:  5.0 miles
Pace:  10:03/mi
Water:  20 oz
Food stuffs:  1/2 banana before starting, Hammer vanilla gel at mile 4 (neither sat well)
Splits:  9:53, 9:54, 10:11, 10:31, 9:44
Called it quits:  at the 5-mile mark, could not keep pushing (was ready to give up at 3 miles so I'm happy with 5 miles)

Run 2
Started at the 5.0 mile mark of Run 1
Miles:  2.14 miles
Splits:  10:16, 9:57, 9:47 equiv
Called it quits:  at my front door step
She's ready to go, I'm ready to rest
Run 3:
Started as soon as I dropped my handheld and got Maddie's leash on her
Miles:  1.54 miles
Splits:  10:25, 10:13 equiv
Tired and hurting human:  1
Extremely happy dog:  1

Running into the morning sun
I didn't quite finish my 9 miles and I most certainly did not do my PHMP + 20 sec for the whole thing, but I did run.  My left-hip wouldn't cooperate so I've been busy rolling and stretching the left-leg tightness out.

Molly said...

A three part run?! I think you did a great job, I don't think I could motivate to run twice in one day, let alone three!

thanks for posting my giveaway : )

Wow, I'm so impressed that you tried 3 times to get your miles in. I honestly would have tried once, then cut my loses! Way to go!
