Don’t we look like quite the party animals?
The stars aligned perfectly and we were all able to run at the same time this morning and everyone was game for some tempoing (not a word but it sounds cool).
The weather was in the 40s! Magical.
I took this picture below because a bald eagle flew right by us during our warm-up. It was so beautiful but I clearly didn’t whip out the camera fast enough.
And during the warm-up I made sure to take a very artistic running shot.
We did a 3 mile warm-up and then started our 5 mile tempo. The most amazing part about those 5 miles were that we didn’t have to stop for a light/car the entire time. Once I stop it is really hard to get my legs moving again. I just want to get it done with zero breaks. A 2 mile cool-down for a total of 10 miles. I really love tempos because you are working hard but at a pace that is doable for you (unlike how I feel during track workouts;)
I must have knocked on wood after writing my review for the 620 because it stopped working?!?!?! Back to the 305 until I get it replaced. Good thing I still adore my Forerunner 305… we have been through a lot together..
Happy with how the splits went down. I tend to fly and die because I feel great in the beginning but I held myself back even though the girls were ahead of me. I knew I wanted to finish feeling strong and avoid positive splits (second 1/2 being slower than the first 1/2).
I got back to my mom’s and Brooke was doing her own tempo.
I was hot during my run but I am always FREEZING after a run until I take a shower. That meant a large coat and penguin blanket were necessary until we went back to our house.
Other people enjoy hanging out at their parents’ house all of the time too right?!
Time to start making something for dinner. My bro, his wife and their kiddos are in town from Arizona and we are going to live it up tonight at my house.
How did your workout feel today on a scale from 1-10?!
Was your workout Inside or outside today?
What animals do you get to see while you are out running (besides dogs/cats)? Has anyone seen a mountain lion or moose while running (I am terrified of both)?
What are you having for dinner tonight?
