That was the theme of this weekend’s run… 11 miles down and 11 weeks to go until Paris!
I had a pretty good run on Saturday – it was definitely very scenic and a new route. Although, I panicked on mile 10 (even the mile time was 1 minute slower than the others) as I realized that I had miscalculated the mileage and would be 1.2 miles short.
Sure, the solution is easy… Just keep running and make-up the distance. However, that meant a massive straight uphill for about 0.5 miles! No problem, I did it and got the 11 miles finished. I was pretty down on my time until I got feedback that I am actually running faster than what my plan has me on at this stage for the long run! So, that did make me feel a bit better! I think it goes back to being more consistent on my weekday exercises.
Here was my route
You know, my time would probably also be faster if I didn’t stop to take so many pictures… Ha, like that will ever happen! After all, I am my “Father’s Daughter”.
So, here we go with the pictures!
This was the beautiful view as I ran through Hyde Park.
Big Ben with the London Eye in the background.
As I panicked on trying to figure out how to get the additional mileage for my 11 miles, this went right past me!
Some friends came over for dinner on Saturday night and we had super yummy Nando’s!
This morning, we took Bailey to the Heathrow Express for her trip to The Hague! I know she will have so much fun and I can’t wait to hear all about it upon her return.
Afterward, we ran afternoon errands and then had a nice break back at the same park from last weekend.
I hope everyone has had a very lovely weekend, as well! Our house will be quiet without a teenager, but I think there is literally something planned each night.
Enjoy your week!
