Last night the boyfriend and I decided to head down to a local bar and participate in their weekly game of BINGO.
He won the first game and the crown...so I punched him in the face, because I wanted the crown! (notice the black eye).
OK OK just kidding! I didn't really punch him (even though I really was jealous of the win). He got the black eye from an injury at work, and we have been joking all week that I have been roughing him up.
Bingo was fun, even though I didn't win a damn thing! The boyfriend won the first game, the crown, a Spiderman yo-yo, and a free drink. Let me tell you, no one should ever allow this guy to have a yo-yo. I was worried all night that I was going to be coming home with a matching black eye!
A BIG THANKS to everyone who crossed their fingers for me and my ankle. Because it worked! All it needed was a little TLC yesterday and I was ready to go again this morning, with zero pain! The boy and I goggled searched ankle pain and we came to the conclusion that it was probably inflamed from running on it for so long. Since that was the first time that I had ever ran that far. A little rest, icing, and ibuprofen and I was good to go!
This morning I wanted to do my run at a little faster pace, since it was a shorter run. I decided that I wanted to aim for a little bit better than an 8 minute mile pace...and I beasted it!
Here are the splits:
Mile One: 8:08
Mile Two: 7:53
Mile Three: 7:51
Mile Four: 7:54
Mile Five: 7:34 <----I totally BOOKED it for the last quarter mile
By the time I was done I was a smelly, sweaty, muddy mess But isn't that just the best way to be after a run?! Maybe its just me...
Now its time to shower up, eat up, and get ready for another long work day. I just have to get through tonight and then tomorrow I have the whole day off. What am I going to do with myself?!
