I finished the 16 miles in 2:27:48 for a pace of 9:15. Yeah, 16 miles is *easily* my new fave long run distance. Enough to kick some butt, but doesn't psych me out mentally. Conveniently my other fave training run distance is 10 miles. I won't be running a marathon in less than a month (EEK!) I'll be rocking a 16 miler and a 10 miler. And perhaps tack on a little .2 just for s&g.
When I got home I was shocked at how salty I was. I will be honest (and have been many times before) I am a sweaty sweaty girl. Sweat is sexy, whatever. I am also a very salty runner. Case in point, when I first started running, could not understand why I would crave dominoes cheesy bread, green olives, tortilla chips, etc. the Mondays after my LRs. Well now looking back on that, uh duh. Whenever I'm done running I always wash my face before I stretch because it hurts from all the salt built up on it. Usually, however, I can only feel it's crusty awesomeness, but Saturday, I could see it in all its glory. Of course I decided to document this for you all to be disgusted by as well.
Also, I just recently realized (like Saturday) that I have a very pointy nose. Please no mean comments. :(
Be impressed, unlike my face which is sooooo over the salt. :p
And apparently the flash is too potent for you to see the salt patches on my neck, but they're pretty nast there as well.
Also wanted to show you how I've even managed to get little tan lines from the slats (slats?) of my Garmin. That's impressive kids. [Also check out my sweet ink!]
And the obligatory post LR garmin tan line shot with Polly Sunshine as a backdrop.
