10 miles, 9:26 pace

I slept most of the afternoon but was able to pick myself up off the coach around 6 to go out for my second run of the day. My legs felt pretty good but I could definitely tell I had run 20 miles this morning. I dove to campus to do my regular 2 mile hill loop. It went pretty smooth, although I was a little low on energy from not eating enough in between runs. There was on brief exciting moment in the run. I was feeling inspired by Rob's post about a week ago about his run in with his neighbor and the biting dog. So when a car stopped right in the middle of MY cross walk and refused to move as I came closer I gave the tail light a little love tap. Unfortunately there were no words exchanged and that was the end of it. I work to protect the rights of the common runner. You can thank me the next time you see me. After I finished my run I made the mistake of going straight to the grocery store. Needless to say I came back with some food I didn't plan on buying. I hope the weather improves this week. I think the picture Kim posted today sums it up quite nicely.

You really should have gotten some carbs in between those runs. I hope you got some carbs/proteins in aftterwards.

Funny story. I have come back from runs and had bad trips at the store returning with more ice cream than one body should have.
