Cheat day(s) #12

So this past weekend we moved up cheat day to Friday to celebrate Joe's bday and then decided to run our 1st 10K on Sunday and proceeded to celebrate a mild cheat day after the 10K as well - so this weekend was a lil messed up but we're back on to the SCD as usual today :)

Friday we started out with a morning run (2.5 mile) and continued with air squats and wall presses before and after meals throughout the day.

Sunday we launched the day by running the Capitol 10K here in Austin, TX. Unfortunately, since we signed up late we had to do the un-timed run, but were still able to keep track of our run times through unofficial methods... Joe finished in about 50 mins and I finished in 60 mins, however both our times could have been lessened had there not been so many obstacles during the race (i.e. walkers: it seemed as though 50% of the near 30K participants chose to walk - very frustrating for us runners!!). I could have also shaved off a few minutes had I not paused to use one of the restrooms halfway through the race...Anyways Joe & I are definitely ready to run a 1/2 marathon now - the 10K was much easier than I expected and was quite a lot of fun! Looking forward to our next one!
