Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was my second favorite book in the series, behind The Goblet of Fire, so I was super stoked to see this movie. I loved it. I re-read all the books around Xmas, so I'm sure they left out some details and such, but because it's been awhile, I don't remember the details, so I can't complain. I actually can't wait to see it again when I'm not deathly tired. Also, I'm slightly in love with Miss Luna Lovegood. (Pictured left). She cracks me up. :)
To keep on with my Wild West Relay training (which is really just my 1/2 marathon training with some modifications), I planned to do my easy run the morning following my evening tempo run. By my calculations, for the relay my legs will be 9-12 hours apart. I had planned on getting up at 4:30am with Taylor, but my eye was still bothering me, so I went back to sleep. I called in sick to work for the morning, since I knew my eyes wouldn't be able to handle 8 hours of staring at the computer (I was right, they were killing after being at work for 3 hours this afternoon!) I went out for my run at 8:30am this morning. While it wasn't my second run for the day as I had originally planned :( it was less than 12 hours apart, so it worked for me.
The easy 5 didn't feel too much different than they normally do after a day of speed work. The legs were a little heavy, but that's to be expected after running so hard the day before. All in all, it wasn't bad, and I think 2 easy runs (one in the morning, one in the evening) would kind of be a fun way to "spice up" easy runs that I sometimes get bored with. Also the miles were really consistent which was cool.
5. 9:09 (I always just want to be DONE during that last mile and can rarely slow down my pace, oh well.)
I finished the 5 miles in 46:53 for a pace of 9:23.
Post-work I got to enjoy my leftover shrimp fajitas, YUM and am now catching up on SYTYCD while the lover boy is at class (he's not a huge fan, weird). :) I could really go for the other half of my watermelon though!
