Today’s workout was supposed to be done entirely on the track but I got kicked off after two miles because the high school kids needed to have practice… they wouldn’t understand that my coach TOLD ME to run at the track. Rude.
To avoid getting lost two days in a row I pretty much just ran back and forth on the same street and passed by this beautiful lake and sprinklers way too many times. Not very nice Phoenix to tempt me the entire time to pause my garmin and jump into this beautiful water when you are so stinkin hot outside.
Something that I really love about the Garmin 10 is that it let’s you know when you have set a new speed or distance record. Even though this is the only 10k I have done using this Garmin I still felt really cool when it told me it was my fastest 10k.
Please remind me to charge my Garmin on Twitter or something tonight because chances are I will forget and be very upset about it when I try to turn it on in the morning and it is dead.
Today’s goal was a 10k with some positive splits. I started with a .5 mile warm-up and then my splits went like this: 7:13, 7:12, 7:10, 7:05, 7:00, 6:54 and last .2 at 6:45 pace.
The first time in the history of my life I actually accomplished negative splits and my first mile wasn’t my fastest like it usually is. Maybe I am learning something. Finished off with another mile cool-down.
And came back and drank 3 entire camelback water bottles. I sure bet Billy misses me coming back home to him in the morning bright red, sweaty, with crazy hair, high on endorphins and telling him about every detail of my run. PS I miss him.
My sister in law and I actually lived together before either of us got married so staying with them is kind of like a flashback to the past especially because she used to always cook for me. Nothing like finishing a run and having eggs and hash browns made for you to eat. Lots of ketchup added to both my eggs and hash browns.
After lunch we went to go buy ingredients for the below beautiful dessert. No Bake Chocolate Eclair… my SIL has made it before and said it really is one of the best desserts she has ever had in her entire life.
While we were at the store I saw this amazing bouquet. Who would choose real flowers when you could get a bouquet of candy bars.
Would it be weird to buy it for myself?
I haven’t asked you in at least a week…. what was YOUR run today? How was it mentally? Physically?
What is your favorite kind of flower?
Tell me honestly what one of the best desserts you have ever had is?
How often do you eat eggs? How do you like em…. scrambled/poached/fried/sunny side up/froached?
