The Adventures of Half Marathon Training: Day 21

Oh man, we did a lot of walking today! 

Well, first I did a little bit of running. πŸ˜‰ Luke drove me to the nature trail and he ended up napping in the car while I ran haha. 

I aiming for 6 miles for my long run today, but halfway through my run the sun had come out and felt like it was beating down on me. Then the pavement warmed up and sent the heat right back up at me. Gross. So after 5.5 miles I was completely drained and absolutely done. Plus things were super slow going for me today, so I had been out for longer than planned and I was just done. Ah well, I got close enough. 

It wasn’t all bad though. I listed to Bang Bang (Green Day’s new single) about 8 million times and I caught my first Dratini on Pokemon go, so I’m very happy about that. πŸ˜„

Immediately after my run, Luke and I went to a park to look for more Pokemon. We didn’t really find anything good, but we walked around for about 30 minutes, and that’s always a good thing. 

After our walk we took Lily and Dean to the dog park. By then it was 86 degrees, so we all got really hot, really fast. But we wore the dogs out and that was our goal! 

We got home around 2:30 pm (we left at 6:40 this morning), so I was ridiculously happy to finally shower! And to sit down! I’m kinda worn out! 

Now I’m watching Olympic diving and I don’t plan on moving for a long time. I do need to stretch at some point though, so I guess I’ll have to move at some point, but that’s not happening any time soon. 

Well, I guess I need to eat something too, but that’s pretty easy to accomplish! πŸ˜„

Happy happy Saturday!!
