Somehow she snuck into my bed last night without me even realizing… she can be quite sneaky when she wants to be or maybe I was just snoring so loud which made it so that I couldn’t hear her.
Tuesday repeats on the schedule and after the workout I tried to touch my toes (my flexibility is non-existant).
I read THE BEST article about attitude right before my run. It was an awesome way to go into a workout and I actually experimented with it a bit during the workout. During one of the repeats I stayed positive and the pace felt difficult but doable and every now and then I would throw in a negative thought about my running and boom… just like that, I wanted to push the stop button and the pace felt impossible. It is crazy how just one little thought can change so much about how we feel while running. He includes 4 tips to help have a successful attitude so check it out. If we can rock our training plan and have a good attitude—> we are all set to reach our goals. Just like with training our bodies, having a positive attitude about running takes time and work but over time it will come and make a huge difference in our running worlds.
I averaged 12:44 for each 2 mile repeat (if I could have been able to do this outside it probably would have been a bit slower) and 12 miles total with w/u and c/d.
We runners sure take a lot of steps each day.
Lunch was supposed to be a ground turkey, red pepper, cheese, avocado omelet but it quickly turned into a scramble (and then I finished off the pan of Brooke’s shells and cheese:)
We sat right by the heater and I don’t hate when she puts her arm around me while we read.
And then she brought her laptop and chair (and told me to turn down my music ((Damien Rice… every day while I blog)) so she could get some work done) over while I was typing up this post (ps I love to put my leg up on the table while I type, it is weird).
What is your sentence for the day?
Do you ever snore?
-If I am beyond wiped or sleeping on my back… absolutely.
Are you a deep or light sleeper?
Do you notice a big difference in your running according to what your attitude is that day?
-Big time… the more positive the better BUT I will say when I am angry—> those are usually my fastest races (i.e. any of my half-marathon prs:)
