Is it really only Wednesday? This week has been crazy busy!
|Cookies & cream batter, yum|
My Business Man's business is celebrating its 90th birthday this week... so

It was loads of fun, but I will admit I'm a bit relieved that I don't have to bake cupcakes today. ;)
Now onto the running...
Last night our local YMCA hosted a 5km - the Herb Jay River Run. I wasn't sure if I'd be up to racing after baking for 10 hours straight, but by the time 6:00 rolled around, I was more than ready to get some fresh air. (Just not sure how fresh my legs would be after running around like a crazy person in the kitchen all day.)
The course was on the riverwalk trail here in the Bean Town, which has several little rollers. The temperature was perfect (about 60*F), but it was pretty windy.
|At the start|
- Mile 1 - 6:00
- Mile 2 - 6:17
- Mile 3 - 6:16
- 0.1 nubbin - 0:39, for a finish time of 19:12
All in all, I'm happy with my performance... only 22 seconds from my lifetime PR on a day when I wasn't really mentally or physically prepared to race. Bonus - the course was the accurate length and I didn't get lost or confused on where to go! Heh.

I picked up an award for one of my friends who had to leave early, so I let my Business Man pretend he received 2nd overall male for a moment. (The boy can dream... right?! Haha.)
Today's plans? A simple recovery run... it is National Running Day after all. And then I'm thinking an afternoon at the pool sounds mighty fine. As long as it warms up out there! What's up with this 60*F weather in June?
