Happy Birthday to Me!!


Today is my 25th Birthday and I started the day off with a great run!  My first MWMLR (Mid week Medium Long Run - created by Marlene!)

It was 9F outside this morning so I got up at 5am and headed to the gym.  My legs felt fresh since I switched up my schedule this week and rested yesterday.  The run was tough but 7 miles later I was done.

1 mile easy (9:05)
2 miles at half marathon pace (8:00)
1 mile easy (8:49)
2 miles at half marathon pace (8:00)
1 mile easy (8:41)

Official Birthday celebrations will start tonight with dinner, cake and hopefully some good gifts and the partying will continue into the weekend although I do have a group long run Saturday morning at 7am - definitely going to need a nap that day!
