Why did I take a selfie with the sky this morning?
Because it was super overcast, about 60 degrees and it rained a tiny bit while I was running. Talk about the best weather conditions for a ‘return to training’ run. Even better—> the feet (my left was worse than my right last week but both were letting me know they weren’t happy) were good for the entire run.
You know your friend Sara is a really good person when you can text her bright and early in the morning and ask to borrow her garmin because yours is frozen and then she brings hers out all ready to go. I’m in love with the purple.
The plan today was for 8.5 miles:
1 @ 8:00, 1 mile on @ 7:00, 1 mile off @ 8:00, 1 mile on @ 6:45, 1 mile off @ 8 , 1 mile on @ 6:45, 1 mile @ 8, 1 mile @ 6:45 and .5 mile cool-down @ 8:00.
I averaged about 4 seconds faster for each mile.
First time in what felt like ***forever that my running felt good. It was nice to have some faster miles but I definitely had to work for those. Some fitness was lost but not too much.
***please note I am super dramatic
The song of the run was THIS one. I don’t know why I like it so much but I just do.
The best is to come home from a run to a well rested toddler.
We hit up Runner’s Corner today to get fitted for some Moving Comfort sports bras. We’ll talk more about sports bras next week. Time to wear properly fitted sports bras and to avoid chaffing:)
Brooke did a few laps while we were there.
Next up—> Costco. Turns out I made her entire month by getting the blueberries. She hugs her food just like I do.
Lunch with my older bro that is in town. We order alike.
Wanted candy when I got home and had a heated up apple with cinnamon and almond butter instead. Baby steps.
My running rules are HERE if you want to check them out:)
How is the weather right now where you are at?
Garmin owners—> which one do you have?
What are some of your running rules?
Favorite type of berry?
