2nd Long Run

I wised up half-way through today's long run and decided to run with the slower group. I don't know WHY I was trying to run with the other group in the first place, obviously my mind thinks I'm faster than my body knows I am. So when we made it back to the mid-way point I rested a bit and waited for the other group. I think I will make them my permanent running partners. I actually did a conversational pace, which is what the long runs are supposed to be. At the pace I was trying to run there was no way in hell I was going to be able to carry on a conversation, shoot, I was lucky to be breathing at all.

Today was a good run and we went for bagels afterwards. Food, my downfall....I would be much thinner if it wasn't for my weakness for food. Not to mention I have no willpower. I guess that is the bigger issue. So we go to Brugger's Bagel and what do I order? A cinamonn sugar bagel with strawberry cream chees! WTF was I thinking...I was just going to blow the whole calorie burn from the run in one sitting. I especially felt bad when I saw one of my fellow runners with a whole wheat bagel sandwich with egg and what looked like vegetables. I felt so bad I ended up only eating half of the bagel. Next time we go for bagels I promise I will make a better choice!

Girl what you don't know is I stopped at McDonald's for an english muffin on the way home! Just kidding... Dont' ever feel bad about what you are eating when you are with me! I eat stupid things to begin with... I really wanted what you had! Oh and I take offense to the slow group comment.. We the "slow group" are rock stars and you just haven't figured it out yet!

I've figured it out now! The "slow group" is the best group EVER and I'm proud to be a part of it.
