Last night was my first run in twelve days!!!! it felt.......goood!
It was hot, but not humid, this is a super bonus this time of year, my training plan called for a 3 mile run! My only goal to run the entire time! I picked a new route as to not get bored and dread every inch of it! It worked I was totally distracted with the hopes that no one would jump out of the woods and steal me, as the path I was on was backed directly to the woods.
I ran all the way to a local grocery store and back...I felt like laying on the road and dying when it was over.
A few things I noticed:
I am back to being really freaking slow, I mean I ran the entire time but I barley got my pace below 11:00 and that was just occasionally.
If you are at all semi-violent, setting your garmin to beep when you drop below a certain pace or heat rate is a really bad idea....my garmin is lucky to be in one piece today
Dumping water on your head mid-run feels so completely awesome
Flipping Mosquitoes need to leave me alone, I barley can put one foot in front of the other and there they were sucking more life out of me!
Mosquitoes is really hard to spell!
A dude in his mini-van yelled "don't sweat baby, just work it" and I was disgusted.
Bikers need to recognize just sayin'
my kids were excited that I was going for a run, not sure if it was the popcorn and movie daddy was gonna do, or the fact that I am a nicer person when I run.
Did I mention I am nicer when I run?
Is nicer a word?
Oh anyhow I need to fuel better and drink more water
I felt like Jalapeno and black bean chips were the best post run recovery
followed with a cup of coffee!
All these things are very random things I noticed, this is why I love to run! I go off into a different world and my brain is far into la la land....other than the huffing and puffing that still registers!
Tonight, speed work! 5x400's with a mile warm up and a mile cool down! Sweet! The weather awesome, 80 with no humidity, I could live outside in this weather!
Happy Hump day
