But it looks like the hills threw red paint all over my face, injected my cheeks with puffiness, dipped my hair into the ocean and spit me out into the locker room.
P.S. It is cool to wear a purple shirt and blue shorts, I got dressed in the dark and I love me some mismatching.
As you know I am just getting into the whole hill thing and push yourself to the point you want to puke thing. I can already feel the benefits (maybe they are all psycological but either way I am going to take it). What was I thinking just focusing on upping my mileage…um, boring. I am loving switching things up and seeing how hard I can push myself.
My Hill workout: Key point….keep the same pace on the (uphill or even fast) as you do on the flat part….KICKED ME IN THE FACE.
10 miles with nine 1/2 mile hills in 74 minutes. Each week these hills are going to get a lil bigger:) Seriously, inclines hurt but it made the 0% feel easy and like I could go forever!
I know you aren’t supposed to ‘reward’ yourself with food. But whatever, it works for me and my new bag of skittle from the MIL were running through my mind during this run…don’t make fun of me but I may have visualized a big pot of them at the top of each one of my hills. It made me run faster.
You have to check out the cutest Val’s post about The Month of Love.…it made me all tingly and happy inside my heart. Love her.
What workout are you going to do this week (or have you already done) that is pukeworthy?
-Today’s hills made every muscle in my bod shake!!
Do you reward yourself with food? What do you reward a hard workout with?
-I think this can be unhealthy for some peeps but for me I do it all the time…….I love food and even though I would eat the skittles/ice cream even if I didn’t do the workout it is still fun to think about rewarding myself with its delciousness later on. Me and the Megan (CHECK OUT HER AMAZING GIVEAWAY!!!) are going to get Gatorade’s after spin tonight….chatting with the bff and a nice cold beverage sounds good to me.
-I also reward myself with laying on the couch for 6 hours being the laziest soul on earth, watching my favorite tv shows and back in the single days when I was loaded (not actually rich, just really stupid with my money….I thought money was enless) I used pedicures, massages and shopping trips as a reward:)
What are the bodily consequences for you after a hard workout?
-RED FACE, chaffing like crazy on my arms, people don’t like standing within 20 feet of me, beads of sweat and ENDORPHINS to the MAX!!!!
