I wanted to do a long run today in Forest Park with my friend Jen. She asked if I wanted to attend her boot camp class outside first—so YES we did a boot camp class outside, then 9 miles. Was it easy? Um…no. A really tough workout. I seriously wouldn’t have made it through without her, but I felt fantastic afterwards.
We ran around Forest Park (6 miles) then we added on a bit more. On the last mile we ran into my trainer Mike, who was just starting his run for the day (though oddly was already hot enough to have taken off his shirt…hmm…). When my Garmin hit 9 miles, we walked the rest of the way back to Jen’s gym where we had parked our belongings and my car.
After that we hit up a crepe place and ate what was likely entirely too much whipped cream. Yum!
I’m tired…so tired…and would do more blogging but instead will go to bed. Let me fill you in later on caipirinhas, a wedding, and LARP (live-action-role-play) in the park. Or not. I might forget . (and for the record, I was an observer of the larping, not a participant. I may like Lord of the Rings but I don’t want to live it.
