Long Run Saturday

Miles today: 2.55 miles
Miles yesterday: 18.35 miles
Miles in 2013: 1121.58 miles

Wahhhhh. Sunday is over already! Lucky for me, this is a one day work week. Tomorrow I become an aunt (again)! This weekend had some awesome moments and a few that I wouldn't mind forgetting.

The good: An incredible 18 mile run with friends. We are all running the ultra in a few weeks. I don't know if I would have run that well without the motivation, laughing, and food discussions. 
The sunrise didn't hurt to look at either. 
This really was one of my favorite runs in a really long time. So glad we could run together.
I was surprised how strong I felt after the 18. Definitely had more miles in me, which was a much needed confidence boost going into a 50K in a few weeks. 
The Bad: After the run, I was starving. Irrationally hungry and desperate for some french toast and potato casserole at my fave breakfast spot. The mimosa was needed too (After a bunch of water and nuun)
My eyes tend to be a little bigger than my stomach in times like this.
It was delish. Until we were driving home. I went from great to horrible in about 2.5 seconds.  I couldn't make it home and ended up puking out the side of the car in the middle of a busy road. I am a mess. My apologies to anyone walking along 10th St yesterday. I spent the rest of the day feeling weak, nauseous, and nursing pedialyte. Not exactly how I envisioned my Saturday.

The Ugly: Uh, hear about a football team out of Gainesville, FL? They break my heart on the regular.

Anyhow, I woke up this morning feeling a little better, but a little weak. Instead of running the planned 10-12 miles, I settled for snuggle time with the pups and the cutest little almost-two-week old in Naples.
I did get in a couple fast miles before lunch. They felt good, but I was taking it easy. Looking forward to getting in lots of miles this week in some cooler temps.

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
Yay for short work weeks!
