On Fridays I usually get done work at noon. Since I did not run at all during the work week I wanted to run Friday after work and follow it up with pizza and ice cream. I have been taking full advantage of this "off" week.
My husband came down to meet us so we could run on the river trail. I'm really loving that my husband is getting more into running. I think it's awesome when couples can find new ways to relate to one another and find joy in doing so. We kept a nice pace. Right now is not the time to work on speed work. It was also suggested to me that I not run any more then 10 miles on a long run for the next few weeks to give my legs the recovery they need. I wanted to 10 on Friday but 8 was great.
In a few weeks Jim and I will be running the Midnight Madness Run so it was good for him to get an 8 mile run in so he knows the distance is no issue. My husband is very funny. While running on Friday he was telling Kelly and I that he could do a half. I think he may be hooked! We will see.
The run was great, the weather was cool and overcast which was a nice treat. After the run we drove over to Kermit's Bake Shop for Pizza an a Ice Cream sandwich. I have been wanting to try their ice cream sandwich for about a year now and just never made it down that way. The ice cream sandwich was good but I think I should have got the banana walnut with chocolate ice cream. Perhaps next time. The pizza on the other hand did not disappoint!
