9 Miler and Graduation

I ran my 9 mile long run this morning with Amy!  It went very well and I had a goal to not walk and keep my splits under 9:30.  I just missed my goal with a 9:31 mile 2, but was so happy my average pace was 9:25.  I was tired, but I haven’t done a long run like this in a long time. I was happy to pretty much reach my goal even while I talked to Amy the whole time.

Next weekend I have 10 miles and I want my splits to be under 9:25 and hopefully have a faster overall pace.  If I can gradually increase the speed of my long runs a little bit, I will feel better about race day! It is coming up soon! April 27!

Today was Bella’s last day of puppy school at Pet Smart!  She even got to wear a little graduation cap for a picture! She is getting a little shaggy, so we are hoping to get her first hair cut in a few weeks.  We need it to warm up!!

  1. Wish I was posting about a run! But I had quite a day with an 8 month old teething , however we did walk in the stroller. Bella is adorable. Thanks for your blog and the cute updates on Bella – I can see why she is so loved. Keep up the great training!
