Nothing like an early morning run on the busiest streets of my city with a forced smile because I was actually too tired to do a real smile. The scenery of my run was beautiful;)
Today on the schedule I had a pyramid run to get done. I am lame and had my garmin set on showing my overall average pace instead of my mile average pace (didn’t have enough time to figure out how to change it because I was already running late). Because it was showing average pace I kind of had to just guess where I was in terms of each mile but I came pretty close to what the workout was supposed to be.
Workout said to do: 7:30, 7:15, 6:45, 6:45, 7:15, 7:30
What I did: 7:29, 7:13, 6:41, 6:42, 7:20, 7:22 followed by a cool-down, performance stretching and some core work.
I took Brooke to her gym class for her workout of playing with 40 other little kids, singing songs, doing an obstacle course and playing with bubbles. It seriously makes me so happy that Brooke gets a gym pass too now that I will be teaching at the Y. They have so many classes for kids.
And for lunch I had my lettuceless salad on top of lettuce.
My SIL sent me this article called Learning to Celebrate the Pain of Running and it is one of my favorite running articles ever.
“My sport is your sports punishment.” The article goes on to talk about why we runners punish ourselves!
How does running change you emotionally?
Do you feel like you eat better when you run?
-Yes. It is crazy because the days I do run I crave fruits and vegetables (and donuts) and on my rest days I just crave donuts.
On your Garmin/GPS thingee what stats does it display on the main screen?
-Distance, current pace and overall average pace.
Last vegetable you ate?
