Saturday 10.0 miles/1:31:00/9:06 average pace
I had another great run where my pace felt easy and my breathing was under control. Zach and I ran on the Alameda Creek trail and kept a very consistent pace. I was talking the whole time which Zach said must mean I'm feeling good. And I was. Yay!
Later Saturday, we decided to go run an errand on our bikes, which turned into longer ride with a few more stops. We ended up riding almost 11 miles total and stopped for a yummy BBQ dinner. We made it back just before dark and crashed.
Sunday, we got up and went swimming. We didn't make it to the outdoor pool though. I wanted to try a longer distance swim again, so I completed 30 laps = 1500 meters! It took me just about 40 minutes. It was a slow pace but I felt good and focused on rolling side to side, and reaching with each stroke. I counted strokes too, and tried to keep it about 18 per length although when I get tired that number can jump up a few counts. I hardly took any rests and Zach commented that I looked comfortable and smooth. :)
Besides all that, we also attended a jazz show at Yoshi's jazz club in Oakland, where I enjoyed my fair share of Yoshi's Red Apple Martinis. I also spent a couple of hours in a used book store that was going out of business, and watched a dozen episodes of Family Guy. But really, It was a very active weekend, although I more than made up for the activity with food (ahem, onion rings) and slept like 10 hours each night too. So I'm surprisingly not tired or sore today beyond the normal Monday tiredness.
