Weedon Island Trails
Hubby and I decided to run there yesterday for about an hour. He knows the trails, luckily, because I would get extremely lost without him. The trail run is hubby's favorite type. I also love trail running. It's like an adventure. And Weedon is really pretty.
|Seriously, there is a 40 pound sandbag in his pack!|
Yes, hubby is hardcore. Those who know him will not be surprised by this. Me, on the other hand? I can barely carry myself during a run. So the first two miles, we were at my pace, but hubby kept up like a champ. And even sped up as we got back to the car where he dropped off his pack.

Friday cooled down, leading into a cold weekend. Which was great because I got to wear my full-length compression pants. LOVE THEM! That and my Calvary Chapel Running Team shirt kept my temp regulated. I felt comfortable almost the entire time. Near the very end, I tied the long-sleeved shirt around my waist and my t-shirt style Dri-fit was enough to keep me warm.
We ended up going for about an hour and ten minutes. Hubby used Mapmyrun.com to calculate the distance because I hadn't brought my Nike+ sensor. We went about 6 1/2 miles averaging 10 minute miles. That's so awesome for me. I felt it, too. Hubby was "driving" us, as he called it. I can't chat much in that case, but I could enjoy the scenery.
