It was a beautiful day to run today. Unfortunately, my run didn't match the weather. Hmmm... wonder if it had anything to do with a late night of drinking... Went out to a local metro park and did eight miles - had to go out and back due to the said construction on the path. My splits were not consistent at all. My legs felt very heavy and, for some weird reason my butt hurt. Not sure why since I haven't lifted legs in the past few days.
Mile 1 - 9:25
Mile 2 - 9:44
Mile 3 - 10:04
Mile 4 - 9:49
Mile 5 - 9:50
Mile 6/7 - 20:03
Mile 8 - 9:53
Since I did out and backs, I had to go down the hills that I usually run up. Wow, hadn't run down hills in a LONG time. Ugg... I still don't feel like a "real" runner again yet.
Oh, and apparently there was a sighting of a girl running in a pink, leopard print skirt in the metro park where I was running. I didn't see the sight myself, but apparently it caused quite a stir among the other runners. You know, guys running off the path, women stopping in their tracks because they realized they would never be able to pull of that outfit. There are only 200 of these skirts out there, so getting a glimpse of this is something only a few can say they've seen.
Last night I went to the Tiger's game with some college friends. Prior to the game, my college roommate and I hit the Detroit Beer Co. - one of my favorite's. We've decided that if we lived closer to each other (she lives on the other side of the state) it would be trouble. :) Not a huge baseball fan myself, we went down to one of the bars in the park to watch the last quarter of the Piston's game. WHOOOO HOOOO! It was so funny because every TV with the Piston's game on had a huge crowd huddled around. One cute old woman was there and goes, "How many years have I had season tickets? The Tiger's are finally good and I'm watching TV!" It was VERY stressful, but much more exciting than the baseball game. Unfortunately, the Tiger's ended their record-setting winning streak but the Piston's pulled off the victory... barely. Afterward, we enjoyed the post-game fireworks and then went to Chelios Chili. It really is fun hanging out in downtown! Later my old roommate and I attempted to change and go out in Novi. It was around 12:30 am but we were SO tired. Yeah. We didn't make it. All in all, it was a great night.
