This is what happens when my photographer (aka Billy) is still at school after my speed workout. (p.s. honey, photoshoot>electrical engineering homework, thanks).
I have a little too much fun with the self-timer. I was a little tired after this workout. My legs are still learning what speed work is.
6 mile repeats @ 6:17, 6:17, 6:17, 6:17, 6:20, 6:21. Pretty good for only my second real speed workout ever.
Every muscle in my body hurts. I almost lost my tuna fish salad sandwich 3.5 times and Mary Ann (my most awesome ELITE training buddy) saw me at my worst. I even cursed in my head at one point and I DON’T SWEAR, that is how you know it hurt. But it was the good hurt…..ya know where you are thinking that you are the bomb.com and that the only thing that could stop you from finishing your workout is a tornado or a table filled with donuts and hot chocolate. (I am still on my runner’s high as I write this).
I hurried and took an ice bath (after I finished my CYTOMAX, gogurt and Glutamine chocolate milk mixture, found on my gear page) and attempted to not look like a beast for my girls only Bachelor party.
Allison made us delicious soup!!! Tomato Vegetable Parmesan. She is a rockstar! I provided the girl scout cookies and skittles of course:)
We spent two hours of our life (plus an hour after the show) talking about the show. Worth every minute. Who needs to lesson plan or shower? Overrated.
Like my new shirt? It says ‘I run like a girl. Try to keep up.’ I won it from JESS’S BLOG…..if you haven’t been to her blog, GO NOW… She is the most beautiful, talented, sweet girl ever.
Welp, Today is going to be a long day……7:45 a.m. to 9 p.m. at SCHOOL!!! I will post at about four so come back for more weirdness and a triple tangent TUESDAY!!!
What is the favorite job you have ever had?
-I really do LOVE teaching the mostest but days like today are LONG and I reconsider working in general. Why can’t I get paid to run and eat all day?!?!
Does running with other people push you or frustrate you?
-IT PUSHES ME!!!!
What did you think of the ‘Girls Tell All” Bachelor Episode?
-Don’t read comments if you haven’t seen it yet, that doesn’t mean don’t comment…..just hurry and scroll down to the bottom with your eyes closed.
Where and what is the best soup you have ever had?
-Last night’s seriously was my favorite, I will be getting the recipe, and also in Seattle I had the best clam chowder ever.
Jogging with Fiction
You are super speedy! Way to go on your workout!!
It depends on who I'm running with whether I get frustrated or push myself.
My favorite job was probably when I was a nanny during my college summers. So much fun! basically we went to the beach everyday.
All of these articles have saved me a lot of headahces.
hahaha i can't (definitely can) believe you posted those self-timer pictures! : ) you're so hardcore.
Great stuff, you hlpeed me out so much!
That soup look amazing!!! My fav is cheesy chicken tortilla, which is basically plain ol' chicken tortilla soup with a cup of cheese thrown in while cooking. Cheese+spicy+tortilla strips= deliciousness! =D
Congrats on your speed run!!!
yep, definitely get us that tomato soup recipe. it looks SO good!
Ha! Those pictures crack me up! Dang girl- you are so fast doing those 6 mile repeats!
My fave job would probably be being a nurse, but a close second would be when I worked at Starbucks- free coffee & pastries….yum!
Running with other people definitely pushes me, too!
The Bachelor was def drama filled but I fell asleep before it was over!
My fave soup is my mom's chicken tortilla soup…I could eat it everyday!
Why do you have to stay at the school until 9?? Thats absurd!!! I hope you packed extra skittles!!! Nice speedwork, I am jealous as always. The most mile repeats I've done is 4, I cant imagine doing SIX!! Like you, I'd really like to get paid to get and run all day and hang out with my dog. Why aren't there any positions open like that?! *sigh*
That soup looked AMAZING… I honestly wish I were there for the soup… save some for me next time k? haha.
I am a structural engineer. Had to take 2 semesters of electrical engineering. HATED it. It made sense to me, I just HATE anything electrical, to this day I still break electronics like it's my job.
Running with people. Frustrates the heck out of me. I am a loner on the trails and I LOVE LOVE LOVE speed work and tempo runs. If my body doesn't feel trashed after a run, then in my mind, I didn't run.
Keep up the good work!!!
GAH i can feel your running pain already! ahahaha LOVE THAT SHIRT. i literally JUST saw the girls tell all… i feel bad for michelle.. but i totally thought they woul FRIGGIN ANNOUNCE THE WINNER ALREADY GEEEZ
Way to lay it out there on the workout!
Jill @ Run for the Hills
That soup looks divine.
PS. I had my (dairy free but still delicious) ice cream in a mug the other night a la Hungry Runner Girl. Ingenious! I'll be doing that all the time now. :)
Always a good job right here. Keep rlonilg on through.

Congrats on the strong workout. And I love the self timer pics! That's about how I felt last night after 2 x 2 miles on the track.
And that soup looks amazing, please share the recipe! My favorites are clam chowder and Italian wedding.
AMAZING job at the track, that was a killer workout, and you nailed your times!
That soup looks amazing! I am a big fan of seafood soups like chowder or a creamy tomato soup- those are the best!
Girl, you are a super star!! Those splits are amazing!! I can't wait to see you rock Boston! :)
My favorite job was working at a local bank. I was a "substitute teller" so I went to different banks around the area every week to fill in for tellers on vacation. It was an awesome summer job! Now my only job is grad student extraordinare! ;)
I don't know if I've ever had a favorite job, but I do know I've rather enjoyed working from home these last 12 years :D
I like to run with other people. I particularly like to ride my bike with other people because I really feel I can push myself in that sport in order to keep up…not so much in running.
I had an amazing clam chowder at the coast last year but I can't remember the name of restaurant. SO YUMMY…and BUTTERY!
I used to wish I had people to run with, but now I think I'm pretty set in my ways of running alone.
Great job on your speedwork! Very impressive!! Keep up the awesome work!
My favorite job I ever had was being a college student. I got to volunteer for some really cool places, go to class and be a Papa John's delivery girl! It was fantastic!
Running with others typically pushes me to try a bit harder than I might if I were alone.
My favorite soup is my grandma's homemade turkey noodle soup that she makes after Thanksgiving.
Dang, 6 mile repeats! The most I've ever done is 5 and I thought that was death. Way to go. I've been doing more straight tempos lately, but you have inspired me to throw in a mile repeat workout this week or next! Thanks!
Your speed workout WAS the bomb.com lady!
Best job ever: working at a bagel bakery. Not really…but I wouldn't mind returning to the days of boxes full of bagels and donuts.
Running (and swimming and biking) with others totally pushes me. I love training with fast boys because I don't want them to beat me ever.
You are SUPER fast! Holy Smokes! I LOVE having a running partner! I love running with girlfriends but my favorite running partner is my husband! My most favorite soup is Albondigas (meatball soup) it is so yummy!
Yeah, want that soup recipe. Looks so good. Love your pix. Too funny. You are like a gazelle. How do you do it!
Have a great day :)
Wow-Great job on the speed workout!!! SPEEDY!!!!
Favorite job-working at a movie theater. Yes, I like popcorn……and candy…..
Running with others both pushes AND frustrates me. I used to run a lot with my sister. She is faster at short distance than me and that was a good push. In the same token, it frustrated the heck out of me when she would push through recovery or try to race me outside of the paces we had set. We are just a tad competitive-I love her!!!
I love soup! That looks awesome. White chicken chili, lasagna soup, french onion soup with loads of cheese!
Have a great day Janae! Congrats on the killer second speed workout EVER!!!
Hahahaha love the pictures!! WAY TO GO ON THE WORKOUT!! I don't even think my legs would move that fast if I tried!
Long school days are awful. Today my kids are taking a mock state-test to see how much more work we have to do before the real thing at the end of April and it's so quiet and boooring! I love my job though and wouldn't trade it for anything. Thousands and thousands of teachers across Texas are being laid off this year though because of the state budget (or lack of) so I'll just be thankful to have a job next year.
I'm learning to run with other people. It makes me nervous because I don't want them to judge me for being such a turtle but I tend to do better when I do.
You're going to be incredibly fast after you've done speedwork for awhile. I'm not fast by any means, but when I added it a few months ago I managed to shave 8 minutes off my 1/2 marathon time. It's hard but so effective!
Congrats on the amazing workout!
I looooved the Women Tell All. I can't believe I'm saying this but I felt bad for Michelle when she was cryin' her eyes out in the hot seat. Those girls were just attacking her. Ridic.
Also, I absolutely adored Dentist Ashley's makeover. She makes a fab brunette.
I WANT THAT SOUP RECIPE! I love tomato based soups! Hmmm, now I really want soup!
Okay, my favorite job? Shoot, I don't know. I don't really like the one I have right now, I can tell you that much. However, I hope to like my future job…Personal Trainer. I'm sure I'll love it!
WAY TO GO ON THAT WORKOUT!!!!
I hit my speed workouts this am too-you are a rockstar! My motto today that I repeated was "In my dreams, I am Kenyan" (which also was the saying on my headband haha). I am queen of dork city!
I love the random baby watching the Bachelor with you, so cute!
Awesome job on that workout, you are so speedy!
my little celebration
You are silly, and I adore it.
My favorite job I ever had was a soda jerk at an old diner. I made shakes and sundaes all day. My favorite thing about it was getting to eat the extras that wouldn't fit into the glass. "Whoops, some for you, some for me." :D.
My favorite soup is probably tomato bisque. YERMS.
Nice run speed racer. Sub 3 Boston, Janae's coming for you.
I don't watch Bachelor! (gasp) Can I still be a follower?
Favorite job … definitely being a life guard and swim instructor from 15 yo – 20 yo. Sit in the sun, play in the water, get paid … yes!
Right now I have been liking a spicy mex tortilla soup.
Haven't got myself together to put up more about my race .. but soon, check back with me later in the week.
SPEEDY! You are my idol!
Haha- LOVE the self timer portraits- you are too funny :)
I have NOT seen the Bachelor yet…but it's on my DVR- I was a grandma last night & curled up in bed at about 9am..if not sooner ;) I was just SO tired yesterday! I don't know what came over me.
AWESOME workout- GO YOU GO YOU :)
Good luck with your long day today, I hope it FLIES by! :)
Great job on the workout! I always felt like I was doing great with my mile repeats when I wanted to lie in the grass on the boulevard and take a nap … or when I sped up just so the pain would be over.
I'm not sure if you could call it a job but my favorite work experience was the college newspaper. A bunch of idealistic 20-somethings eating and breathing what they love. Awesome.
I don't have a favorite job. I've liked pieces out of all my jobs and was really sure that I would love teaching. I just didn't forsee teaching Spanish instead of history. :D I get to go back to school in the fall so maybe after that I'll come across my perfect job. :D
I've only run with another person once, and that was before I really started running. I ran with my mom and (bless her heart) she did hold me back.
Chicago Cuisine Critique
That shirt is adorable!
Loved the 4th picture down! Congrats on a great workout! My fav soup is Tomato soup from Zuppas. RE: Bachelor. I was disapointed and it felt like filler. Michelle crying was ridiculous but I was disapointed how some of the girls attacked her. It was inmature. Ashley H's makeover was WOW!! She looked great and I loved that Brad had to do a double take. I think he will hook up with Chantel. Cant wait until next week!
I had a little photo shoot with the self timer last night, too. It's funny to see what gets cut.
Amazing speed workout! Soooo fast! I'm new to running with other people. The time definitely goes by faster. Billy and I watched the Bachelor last night – so much drama, sort of hard to watch. I feel sorry for the girls who cry. So, who do you think he's going to pick??
Sorry about the long day, but you can do it!
Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn
It's fine I'm a weirdo too:) Slash I HAVE NOT SEEN IT YET boooooo
SOMEWHERE I have a shirt on it that says RunnerGirl but I am thinking it is from my childhood and would fit like a belly shirt at this point.
Jess @ Blonde Ponytail
HOLY SPEED DEMON!!!!! That t-shirt looks fabulous on you and is COMPLETELY accurate!!! thank you for the shout out–I have already have had several "visitors" on Blonde Ponytail b/c of you!
Do you think one day you could have Billy video you running your track workouts? I would love to have a visual of what it looks like to run that fast–it may help me change some things on my form or at least know what "lightening fast" looks like!!! I hope this request didn't wierd you out–just wanting to learn from you!!
I don't think I'll ever get used to this working full time thing. It stinks. I wish I could get paid to run, eat and blog all day. That is the dream! Why can't that happen for us Janae!? We need to invent something amazing like your dad, and then make millions so we can run for a living. :)
Jess – that's a brilliant idea!! i want to see you do track workouts too!!
That's 2 people that voted for it!
hey- Guess who I met this weekend? Mitchell from Modern Family!! Yep. Be jealous!
Ahhh I hate long days at school! Hello people! 9 o'clock?! are you serious?
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey
Yowza! You are so so fast!!! You amaze me! I watched the Bachelor Girls Tell All episode with Charlie last night. We both thought the girls were visciously mean to each other!!!
This place called Texas de Brazil has the most AMAZING Lobster Bisque!!
I like to run WITH people, it motivates me to keep up with their pace and run farther!
I ran 6 miles with my husband on Saturday!!!
My husband makes fun of me for taking pictures of everything now!…but I can't figure out how to add them to my posts!
rock i love those workouts where you just want to pass out on the floor!
my favorite soup currently is a mushroom beef barley stew, i love it.
HOLY GUACAMOLE JANAE!! I PUT the treadmill on a 6min pace and held it for like, ohhhh…… .15 of a mile. i was SCARED running that fast! yikes. i'm in awe.
my favorite job ever is being a mom. (gushy i know, but the on-the-lip kisses are the BEST)
i LOVE running with people too. it makes the time go by faster. i'm training my hubby for his first 1/2 marathon and we ran 6 miles together sat. the time FLEW!
michelle…that's all i can say. she's a nutcase. how many times did she say, "i did this for the right reasons…i left my little girl…"
favorite soup? LOADED POTATO!
Those are some really fast repeats! Your pictures are always awesome, your baby sitting pics were hilarious, you really would be the best baby sitter ever, haha
And I looked up the 2012 Olympic Trials marathon qualifying time to be able to run at the trials, its 2:46. I'm not sure what your goals are, but I think you have a shot at approaching a time somewhere around this (your coach might have a better idea of this, haha).
You are such a doll! It's so fun to procrastinate and watch reality tv and eat food. I do that a little too much ;)! I felt kinda bad for Michelle last night, esp. after they talked about her mothering…
I heart your blog big time!! :)
Once again, you have cemented your place in my heart as my hero. Holy cow those repeats are sick!
You are a rock star!!! Way to go.
These pictures are great! I love your blog! I am getting ready to train for my first half marathon :) Any words of advice/wisdom?
Wow, great job! When I'm tired, I think of your awesome workouts and run faster. Haha, those pictures crack me up!
Just Run With It
Those self timer shots are priceless! You are making me LOL girl :) Also? You are SICK fast! Well, I mean, I already knew that, but STILL! Good job you!!! I felt so bad for Michelle during the "girls tell all" thing last night, I couldn't believe how harsh they were being! But the saddest thing about the Bach this season? Is that the winner was LEAKED and I accidentally saw who wins on the FRONT PAGE of a magazine at the grocery store! Don't they have laws against showing that stuff?! Dude, so if you don't want to know how wins (if you don't know already), don't go grocery shopping for the next week!
Wow, what a workout! And that soup looks delicious. I think the best soup I've ever had is my mother in law's split pea and ham soup. Seriously to die for.
Running with other people pushes me but can be frustrating if the other person is either waiting for me (which I hate slowing other people down) or they are worried that I am frustrated with them (which never happens).
My favorite job ever is being a mom. It is the hardest and most rewarding thing I've ever done. But right before that I was a project manager for a construction company and got to pick out all the colors and carpet and cabinets for the spec houses that we were doing. It was an absolute blast!
Woot! Nice job on the speedwork, Speedy!! Very jealous of that right now…me and the boot barely walk 45 min/miles :). The self timer is funny. Have a blast at school today … I am off early for standardized testing – yay!
Love self timer and good soup :)
The best soup I ever had was a butternut squash kind that came with cinnamon sugar croutons on top. To.Die.For.
I just bought a tech shirt that says that too!! I also got one that says "Will run for chocolate!" :)
hmmm… I really loved working at the Hello Kitty Store and being a 1st grade teacher was also a blast and a half. I'm a hs teacher now and work at a school with very disrespectful students…I'm depressed with this change. Blame budget cuts.
I run with a buddy and she really pushes me. I make her do the timing because she really pushes me hard that way! I love it!
Best soup? My mom's chicken cream noodle soup. Can't beat that!
ha at least you have a photographer. marshall refuses to take weirdo photos of me!
on your amazon store thing.. can you email me more about that? i am deciding between that and open sky and want to hear what you think of it!
dang girl that is an awesome workout!!! I am envious!
running with others totally pushes me!
I love your t-shirt!
Great work on the mile repeats!
I have had to take the last 3 days off because my left calve was feeling really tight, like it was going to snap. It feels better today and I will be running again tomorrow.
23 days till my race!
Best soup ever, kumara (sweet potato) and parsnip with parmasean..
Haven't watched The Bachelor from last night yet, but I'm pretty dang excited to watch! Love the self-timer pictures; you are a rockstar!!!!
for the most part running with others pushes me…not always in the physical sense but when i'm running with someone else i am pushed to be a more motivating/understanding/encouraging person!
I just did the opposite of what you suggested, and scrolled through all these comments LOOKING for bachelor related comments. Only like 3 people talked about it! boring!
First of all, I've always loved Michelle. I think she is hilarious and entertaining and beautiful, but obviously never meant for Brad.
Second, every season they edit these talk-show type episodes like whoa. It's really annoying, you can tell they cut what someone really said.
third, I agree Ashley looked good, but she had work done, right? I stared and stared until I figured it out — I think she had a nose job.
I also thought it was funny that Shawntel looked like she wanted to punch someone whenever Brad talked or was mentioned
Kate (What Kate is Cooking)
If I'm running with someone fast, it pushes me, but if they're slower, I feel bad and stick back with them :)
You totally are the bomb.com. Those are some awesome mile repeats!!
I love all soup. All of it. Except for maybe gazpacho…I'm not sure I could enjoy cold soup.
I like running with my best friend, but we don't really push each other. I'm not sure how I'd feel having to keep up with someone.
Do you like the Camelbak water bottle? I have one, but I feel like when I am really thirsty I can't drink out of it fast enough!
It's two days in a row that I'm plugging my giveaway on your blog, but it really has your name written all over it! So I think you should enter. http://www.therunofit.com
Any chance you can get that soup recipe from your friend? It sounds awesome! I love soup. The thought of picking a favorite has me paralyzed with indecision.
I want a job where I get paid to snuggle dogs all day and exercise for a few hours. I don't think that job exists.
My fave job was a tie between my two jobs I had in college! I worked part time at a local amusement park in the group sales ticket office (sending tickets to companies who rented out the park for private events, etc) and working in the international admissions office at my college!
I haven't had my favorite job yet – but it would be being a physical therapist or personal trainer. Maybe one day!
Batchelor – I thought Chris Harrison was suspiciously sympathetic towards Michelle. Makes me wonder…
Love your blog, as always!
You and your blog always make me feel like it is more than okay to go 4 days without shampooing my hair… I love it!!
I love the bachelor and wish i could watch it with you…. i have a feeling squeels and giggles would be going on!
Great job on your speedwork!
WOW! I'm very impressed with both your speed and your ability to keep your miles consistent. You go girl! Teaching is so frustrating, my favorite job ever was a Starbucks barista, so much fun. If I had married a rich man I would quit teaching and just do that.
Sabrina @ Radioactive Runner
Way to go on your workout.. you are so fast!! I love the photos you posted.. haha you are so funny.
Love your shirt, whoever made it must rock! Ha ha! If you send me a picture of you wearing it I will post it on the Chick 9 Facebook page and website…you can be one of my models!
I used to be in a soup club at work, so I have all kinds of great recipes! My favorite is green chile soup with a little bit of cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips on top! Sooooo good!
Big Daddy Diesel
– Favorite job PIZZA MAKER!!!!
– I love to bike with fast people to push myself
– What show?!?!?!
– Clam Chowder from Boston
What did you do in between the miles? How long of rest? Or no rest but jogging? Thanks!
