This week’s running

Guys, thank you all for your comments and enthusiasm about the inaugural Running The World post. I was so excited about it and I’m so glad you liked it. I’m hoping to have something great for next Wednesday as well.

In terms of running, this week looked like this:

Friday: Long run – 12 miles at 9.22 pace

Sunday: Hills – 5 hilly trail miles at 11.09 pace

Monday: Tempo run – 6 miles at 8.35 pace

A decent tempo run. M1 – Normal, M2,3 – Tempo, M4 – Normal, M5,6 – Tempo with tempo miles averaging 8.19 pace. Those tempo miles did get progressively slower…but whatever! 🙂

Wednesday: Intervals – 4 miles at 8.35 pace

The Dude was poorly all day which is horrible for both child and parent. In the evening, when the Husband was home, I got outside for the first time all day and knocked out a sluggish run. Unremarkable but I was glad I did it. The pre-twilight light was beautiful!

What else? Yesterday afternoon, I went to the wedding of two dear British friends at the beautiful San Francisco City Hall. The Dude was much better but not well enough to go, so the Husband came home from work to look after him so I could go, which was very sweet. I love a good wedding!

Lovely girls

Every now and again, I like to get dressed up!

This weekend is going to be a corker because I’m going trail running with Jen and a couple of other people up San Bruno Mountain. This was the run we postponed in January due to one of the few deluges we’ve had this winter. But Saturday promises to be dry, if not even sunny, and we are finally running the beast that’s whispered to me every time I drive past it!


We’ll be running along that ridge!

And if that wasn’t enough….IT’S FLIPPING GAME OF THRONES WEEKEND! Bring on the dragons! Dracarys!

About Cathryn

I'm from Wiltshire, a beautiful rural county in the south of England. My husband, son and I moved to California in August 2010 with my husband's job, whilst I stay at home with The Dude, our gorgeous five year old son. I love running and cycling. I'm a Christian. I am finally learning to cook (about time too). I'm loving exploring this new part of the world and meeting its wonderful people.
