7:49, 8:02, 8:15, 8:17, 8:25, 8:43, 8:55, 8:40, 8:41, 9:03, 8:45, and 8:43. (P.S. I have no idea how to copy the splits from my Garmin ...help)
Hopefully I will learn from this practice run and be able to hit my goal of a sub 1:50 at San Jose.
After my run, I hurried and showered and was out the door heading towards my favorite restaurant ... Lauriol Plaza. If you haven't been there, then you need to go!! They have the best chips and salsa in my opinion! yum and some more yum. And after a long run it was the best dinner anyone could ask for.
|yes I ate two baskets!|
Saturday was glorious because I didn't get up until 8am!!! OMG ... sleeping in... I think I am in love! With my long run out of the way, it meant I now had a rest day! And what better way to rest than to go on a shopping spree :) Two dresses from Nordstrom, a bundle of socks, new running shoes (and a pair of normal person shoes), and arm warmers! Now my my wallet was complaining it needed a rest day too.

|These are hot pink... yes!|
Since I am now officially in love with all things sleep, I was in bed by 9pm and ready to wake up early for the Back Roads century. The alarm went off at 5am and we were out the door and on the road by 5:40. It was about an hour and half drive to start line and it was chilly when we got there. Hello new arm warmers! You are now my new BFF (sorry sleep). I loved the ride, absolutely loved it! the 50 miles flew by and it only felt like I had been riding 20! My legs felt great and my back didn't hurt at all!!! It was amazing! But I stuck to my plan of only riding 50 miles, even though it killed me :( Full Tour report to come tomorrow.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and fun at their races!
