Weekend Shenanigans

August 24th (Saturday): 8am wakeup. Some breakfast snacks. Out for 6 miles (41:58) at 9:15am. Back to stretch, foam roll, and shower up for the harness track in Saratoga. Watched some horse racing, placed a bet (lost), and hung out with some co-workers for a few hours.

Headed out to meet up with Sean Gavs at SPAC for an easy 7 miles (50:11) through the trails. Back to the house to shower up and grab some food before making my way back up to Saratoga to hang out for the night. Crashed on a buddy's couch for the night.

Souvenir cup.

Worth the 5 bucks.

August 25th (Sunday): 8:00am wakeup and back to the car to drive back to the house. Stopped at the grocery store for a Gatorade, orange juice and a frozen Kashi pizza. Oat bran with almond milk and maple syrup for some morning fuel. Chilled on the couch for a while before cooking up the pizza in the oven around noon. Lots of vegging out and refueling/hydrating for the long run (with a tempo at the end). 

Out the door by 5:00pm for a 12+ mile loop warmup in 77:13. 5 mile tempo loop through the neighborhoods. 5:15, 5:22, 5:23, 5:07 (overall downhill), 5:12. 26:19 for the 5 miles. Walked off a bit before a 1.5 mile cooldown back to the house. 18.5 mile long run. Total time: 1:51:43. 92 miles for the week with a good workout and a pleasing long run.

Sunday consisted of a 4 Cheese Pizza with bleu cheese dressing, the blog update and TV movies.
