Is it still a back to back if you do the longer run on the second day? I really don't know. However, since my plan calls for several back to backs and Sunday works out best for me to run long, I do my "short" long runs the day before. Today, I met up with Michelle who ran with me and the great group of ladies last week in Millcreek Canyon. She was running a little late, so I ran about 1.25 miles before she was ready. We met at the Equestrian Center trailhead and headed up into Corner Canyon.
It was a very nice and easy run. I didn't want to push it too hard, since I have my long run tomorrow. I was a little frustrated at myself, because I unintentionally cut our run short by looking at the wrong lap screen on my Garmin. We finished up with 8.74 miles under foot, which was a bit shorter than I had intended. However, I was anxious to get to my son's soccer game, so we called it and I headed home. I then decided to just run to the game. I changed my socks and shirt and threw on my street shoes and ran the 1.66 miles to the soccer field. I felt much better about my mileage total after that, and bonus, it brought my average pace way down!
Can I also just say that I guess I should post more pictures of myself in my underwear, because I had a record number page hits yesterday! Ha ha! I suppose I should have seen that coming!
A lovely morning in Corner Canyon!
