Post 20 Training

I was not sure how I was going to feel at lunch yesterday when I got out for my first run after the 20 miler on Saturday.  I had been up really late (for me) on Sunday, so I didn't make my usual 4:30 am run, and decided lunchtime was a good time to do it!  Especially because I had to go home and get dinner into the crockpot anyway. 

I got home changed into my current favorite "I am not sure what the weather is doing, so I better be prepared" pink and purple outfit, and set out to get my three miles.  I didn't know how my legs would feel or what they were going to do, so I just let it go.  I just ran for three miles.  And it ended up being quick, especially considering Saturday!
Splits were as follows:
Mile 1 - 9:16
Mile 2 - 9:14
Mile 3 - 9:12

I am quite pleased that my legs felt like running in that manner yesterday.  I was not expecting it at all. 

Here is a pic of the pink & purple after the run.  I do <3 this outfit!
Those pink shorts?  They are asics and have a little piggy on them (flying pig, baby!).  I got them at the heart mini expo because they were on clearance for $5.  Best money spent ever.  Seriously.  The liner in them is longer than your standard running shorts, which helps with chaffing, they are super comfy, and I like how they fit me.  I feel like they make my legs look strong!

After showering and stuff, I threw the meat in the crockpot and made myself a quick lunch (which was repeated for breakfast today!)  GREEN MONSTER!  I drank it in the car on the way to my office (and finished it when I got back, after all, I work only 1.5 miles from my home!
Tonight J and I have a date night and we're seeing the Addams Family!
