This post is full of moosellaneous items. . . . .cheesy, yes, I know.
This little guy was in our neighbor’s yard one morning. I was watching him, he was watching me, good thing there was a fence between us. You could tell he was shedding his winter coat.
I did 22 miles in the rain—although it didn’t rain that much during the run. It was chilly though at 50*F. I know that is perfect for some of you, but I was chilled. I also think that’s why my pace was a little slow.
Overall it was a good run. Craig biked with me for the first 10 miles, which was nice. I started off kind of slow but was able to pick it up towards the middle. My overall pace was one second under 8 minute miles, which is basically 8 minute miles, but that 7 makes it feel that much faster.
Distance: 22 miles
Pace: 7:59 minutes/mile
I am really loving my new Mizuno Wave Rider 16s. At first I wasn’t sold on them, but now that I’ve broken them in and worn them on a few runs, I love them. They are light weight and fit my foot really well.
I especially love all the mesh in the toe box because it gives my wide feet additional room.
Speaking of running items I love, I am loving my running skirts. When running skirts first came out, I thought they were kind of weird but over the years they have grown on me. Both of my skirts are from Lululemon. You can see pictures of the Lululemon Run: Nothing to Hide Mini Skirt through the link.
My second running skirt is the Lululemon Run: Light as Air running skirt. I got it on sale last fall and have finally been able to wear it this summer.
Like the name implies, it is very lightweight and has a great fit. The shorts underneath fit great and stay down due to the silicone piping on the underside. These shorts are also a little longer than on the other running skirt I have, which helps eliminate the chafing that often happens to my thighs.
The waistband is really comfortable and has two pockets, plus there is one zippered pocket in the back and two on the shorts. I love the fun colors and the little bit of feminine flair a running skirt gives.
