Met the BBK's at Monarch Meadows park to run the pumpkin run in reverse (UP first!!) Started out nice and slow and got to chat with Michelle for a while, then when everyone stopped to regroup I kept running and Kelli came along with me (I knew those speedsters would catch back up). Once we hit the park we did an extra 1/2 mile out on Butterfield Park Rd so we'd finish with a full 6. Had a wonderful nice easy downhill run back, then decided to take an extra loop with Kelli and Becca that turned out to be about 1.5. Since I was now pretty close to 9, I decided to go for it and make it 9, so I ran with Kelli back to her house and then the last part of the loop again. I totally missed the addition/guessing of miles, because back at the car I finished at 9.87....so I finished up at 10.
AP: 9:20 HR(147) splits: 9:17 (151), 10:03 (153), 9:43 (156), 9:01 (143), 9:12 (140), 9:03 (144), 9:18 (147), 9:07 (144), 9:27 (148), 9:06 (140) - again it amazes me how I can tell the hills not only by the slower pace, but significantly faster HR.
Now I'm off to the gym for weight training (45 min) and then I'll ride the bike for another 1/2 hr or so to spin these legs out!!
