I am unusually extra happy today. It may be because I slept the entire night without waking up once and when I did wake up this morning I ran 5 miles and they felt awesome. I am keeping my pace at about an 8:30 mile still but I don’t know how much longer I will be able to do that. We have another half in 3 weeks so I need to get in 1 or 2 10-milers before then but I am thinking that a slower pace will be the way to go for me.
Speaking of half marathons, this dude did one on a treadmill while ON a hot air ballon. I feel like I would get so sick from all of the wobbling back and forth. When we have gone on cruises in the past I always try to run on the treadmill but end up getting really seasick, I can’t imagine running on a treadmill up in the air.
I don’t think I have put on a creepy faced picture on the blog for quite some time so I thought today would be as good of a day as any to throw one in. I am over the whole utensil thing and now just bring a bunch of cut up fruit to dip into my yogurt for breakfast. I also can’t eat enough hard-boiled eggs which my students absolutely love to smell when they walk into the classroom.
Lunch was pizza. I usually get the salads at school but I can never pass by the pizza on Mondays. It is on a whole wheat crust so that clearly means it is healthy.
The highlight of my workday was during a driving test. It was very entertaining watching the cop try to get the cow off the road. I bet police officers never have a boring day, they probably come home with the most interesting stories.
What is your comfortable running pace right now? Does it change daily or do you have an average pace that usually just feels good?
Ever been on a cruise? Where? Were you able to run on the boat?
