We had some fun house guests this weekend.... Scott's aunt and uncle came to visit from San Diego and stayed with us last night. Moana had a ball with them and of course loved all the extra attention. It was almost as good as a visit from grandma! :)
Anyway, it was the first time I'd met his aunt and uncle so of course our conversations involved a lot of 'get to know you' talk... They asked lots of questions about my training and racing of course, which is always an interesting subject for those who are not exactly familiar with the sport. Yesterday the conversation went something like this:
"You biked how far this morning?"
"And then you went running? After you already rode your bike??"
It's funny because these workouts we do on Saturday morning are just completely normal for us, but when I say them out loud, to people who don't know the sport, I almost feel ridiculous. At one point this morning I was chatting with his aunt and said something about how we are 'fairly active on the weekends...' She was like, Um, I would say so. Lol.
I did not tell them how far I was running today. Maybe some things are just better kept to ourselves... But I can tell you guys, right? You guys understand. That's why you read this blog, right? So how's this... 14+ hilly miles... I felt average... just plugging along doin' my thang... checked my watch for my split at the turn around and saw I was there about a minute faster than ever before... cool... ran home solidly... never felt like I was pushing it but hit my watch at the end to see a negative split and a total time that was a full 3 minutes faster than I've ever done this run before. Now THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! Sweet. :))
2 weeks til Honu.
