All you have to do to make yourself have a good run on a Monday morning when your eyeballs are still wishing they are closed is to wear a shirt that tells you to run happy. If you don’t have a shirt that says this then make sure to just write it on your arm or something.
I was going through my running clothes drawer yesterday and found a running skirt and decided to try it out today. It felt comfortable and great but I just don’t think I am a running skirt person..I like them on other people but I felt kind of weird in it. I think I am just a shorts person.
Today’s run was W.I.N.D.Y. Did you know that you get 100 extra running credit points when you run in the wind? I promise.
On the schedule I had a warm-up mile (@ 8 minute pace) followed by 5 miles at a 7:30-7:20 pace and a half mile at a sub 7 pace. After the first 6.5 miles I had 10 x 20 second strides with a 1 minute jog in between to do.
It was a total of 8.5 miles at an average pace of 7:18 and once again my legs felt like they were seconds from falling off during the strides. The wind did not help the falling off sensation I was experiencing but overall I came home happy with how it went.
It scares me that stretching and core work have just become natural now after a run. My running coach has brainwashed me.
Chicken fajita sandwich for lunch.
My new favorite activity. We just bought our first baby monitor. We didn’t have one before because our apartment is so small you don’t need one but we bought one for anytime I need to get on my treadmill for a run during nap time.
I don’t know why I think it is so fun to sit and watch her sleep.
Please take advantage of the Blizzard flavor of the month. I saw it on a commercial the other day and I teared up. Pure brilliance.
