10 easy miles on Saturday. I went up and down my usual canyon. Although I did end up going a little bit farther UP the canyon than I usually do. Most of the time I stop before this huge scary looking hill, but this time I told myself I could do it and I just pushed through and did it!
If you want to finish strong and fast and feeling awesome, end your run with "Happy" by Pharrell Williams.
I was flying during the last half mile when the song popped up on my playlist! As you can see here from my best pace.
Do you notice anything about this elevation chart here?
That is the scary monster hill that I mentioned. Yeah, it was intense. That is about 100 feet of straight elevation gain. Crrrraaazzzy. It felt so good to finally conquer it.
Later on Saturday, we took a little family walk/hike up the same canyon that I run in. We conquered that hill yet again! Our walk ended up being 5 miles. So it's kinda like I did 15 miles on Saturday, right? Well, that's what I keep telling myself anyway. Just mentally preparing for my 16 mile long run this week!
