It didn't bother me that they kept saying that 5 and 6 minute miles were slow, because that pace is slow for the elites. However, the weirdly sexist and racist comments were a bit much. I thought about muting the commentary, but, instead decided to take a page out of Mike's book and take the crazy path: I just started arguing with them. It didn't seem to bother Bungee the way it does when Mike's yelling at basketball games.
After tuning into the race, I got back to work for a few hours. I did my run in the morning, but after watching the race, I felt energized again and wanted to run more. I planned to take Bungee running, but when the temperatures skyrocketed, I didn't think she'd appreciate a run in the sun.
Instead, I took her for a long walk and then opted for the coolest running route: the basement. Buffy was calling my name and a little butt-kicking really helped my speed! I did three more miles, for a total of a little over 10 miles for the day. The walk and runs tuckered both Bungee and I out.
|You'd never know Bungee was 3 with that ridiculous beard.|
It was amazing and ridiculously filling. I just wish there were leftovers for Mike's lunch.
Did you watch the marathon? What'd you think of the commentary?
Are you ready for summer running temps?
