Long Run: Check!

My day tomorrow is pretty packed, and so I decided it'd be best to do my long run today.  I waited until Mathis got off work for us to run together on the Huckleberry.  The weather was a little warm -- still in the 60s so I can't complain too much! :)

Today I got to run with my new Garmin Forerunner 305!!!! :)  It arrived on Wednesday, and this was my first run with it.  I LOVE IT.  It works so well, and I can hook it up to my computer which is something I never did before.  I also ran with compression socks and my new bicband today -- both made the run great!  I will wear both next week for my half-marathon, and I wanted to do a trial run with them today.

I really tried to push the pace today.  I am hoping to PR next week, and I feel that I'm at the point where I should be working on my speed a bit.  It was tough, but I'm pleased with today's run!  Having Mathis with me really helped.  I carried water with me, but still got pretty thirsty towards the end.  I'll do a few more runs before Saturday, but I'm getting very excited about the Capital City Half-Marathon!

Tonight I'm stretching my legs and enjoying a night on the couch watching my Spurs.  We're going to open up a bottle of Virginia wine and just relax........ :)

Have a great weekend!
