It is a hoodie and Lilly tolerated it for about 10 mins before I took it off. She had this look on her face of utter humiliation - I felt so bad! But he was so excited for it. He wants her to be able to use it while we are in Tahoe next week since it will be cold. I think he sometimes forgets she is a DOG with a fur coat! Oh well, if anything it lets me know that he is going to be one awesome Daddy someday!
On the running front I had the BEST, most AWESOME run last night! Granted it was on the treadmill but I did stick it out! One of my goals for 2010 is to run a sub 45 10K. I know it's in me, I may even have a sub 44! And last night just proved to me that I think I may be able to cross that one off my list sooner than I think!
6.2 miles 45:20 7:18/mi And the cool thing about this is that my first mile was an 8:15! If had started out sub 8 like I probably would in a race I would have smoked the 45 min range. I also felt really great during it. My kick was right on and my breathing wasn't out of control or too labored. In fact, my last mile I was running a 6:42/mi pace. Now if I can only have all of this go right on race day I would be one happy camper!
I am soooo glad it's Friday. I am getting up early tomorrow, cleaning the house real quick and then we are going to head up to Tahoe to do some early snowboarding. Ari is just itching to get up there with all the snow and I feel like I owe him since he did endure 6 straight weeks earlier this year of my racing :) I think I will only board on Saturday afternoon then let him tackle the mountain by himself Sunday while I try out my new Yaktrax and go for my long run in the most beautiful scenery!
To all you peeps who are racing or hitting up the long run this weekend, good luck! One week 'til Christmas!
Happy Friday and happy running peeps!
