Two miles of continuous running bc that’s all that I could put into today. It felt great, I didn’t push myself too hard, and I probably could have kept going at that pace. But, this week is exhausting.
Set out to run 3 continuous miles, took a wrong turn, and ran 5. So I ran the first three continuous and then did intervals the last two to make it home, where Flapjack was more than excited to see me.
Also, my rough work week is *finally* over, so there’s a pineapple dancing it’s lil butt off to celebrate.
It was hot & humid again outside, so a slower pace was needed. Also, while I’ve been getting back into running, I’ve noticed that I’m losing some tonage in other parts of my body, so I’m gonna start cross training
Looking to do these 2x a week, and an upper body/core 2x a week. Let’s see how that goes.
Tomorrow is my long awaited rest day. Although, honestly, running is the only thing that has kept me sane and grounded this last week. Rest days are hard.
(Also, I’m only ever on mobile and *apparenly* I’ve been posting giant photos. Who knew? Let’s try this thumbnail thing to see if it’s friendlier.)
A nice slow run to get back into the week. Last night was my last night of bowling, and we came in around middle of the pack. Not bad for our first season, and better than any other sport we’ve played so far. Overall, I’m happy. We are all competitive though, so not placing was hard.
But, now I can run on Monday’s again. So there’s a bright side.
It’s hot & humid out and I’ve been forced into running at a slower pace. Also, with the return of PSL, work has been crazy busy. (Pumpkin spice chai with soy is probably my favorite drink we have ever come out with, so I get it) I thankfully missed the launch date, but did work a 10 hour shift today that ended with our BOGO event.
I left my last post in the middle of a thought because I was waiting for a friend to watch The Happytime Murders, and when he showed up I posted the reply instead of saving it. Not that I have all that much going on. It’s still hot and humid, and it’s supposed to stay that way for the next few weeks at least. Slower runs are in my forecast.
My hip started bothering me at work last night, and I was hoping that I would wake up and it would feel better. Since it caused pain walked up and down the stairs, (I live on the third floor) I’m taking an unplanned rest day (or two?) until it feels better.
Rest days are rough. Flapjack is doing his best to make sure it’s better though.
Happy three day weekend to those of you who get it off.
Ran a mile with intervals, ran two continuous miles, then ran another mile with intervals.
It was nice to ease back into running today. My hip feels 100% better and I’m excited to get back into the routine.
Also, I ate SO MUCH this weekend, and that combined with no running is making my pants fit very tight. Whatever amount of food you’re thinking, double it. Seriously, like 4000 calories. The real downside to working at Starbucks.
Holy moly it was hot outside. I couldn’t get into rhythm with today’s run, my whole body felt off. My hip still feels good, so it wasn’t that. But I almost felt like I was overcompensating for having a bad hip earlier this week. Hopefully tomorrow’s run will be better.
I’m not loving my splits or the heat and humidity right now. The only thing helping me push thru is thinking maybe it will be like this during marathon weekend.
I will never break a sub 5 marathon if I continue like this.
Yay for consistency! Or the closest thing I’ve seen to consistency in a loooooong time. Also, I have a three day weekend and I am so so thankful. Work has been stressful and I got passed up for a promotion. The guy who did get it so more than deserving, so I’m happy for him. But it still stings a little.
Well apparently my long weekend included a lazy weekend. I didn’t run the last two days, which made today a little rough.
I did go to the Conservators Center in Burlington yesterday, and that was so much fun. They have lions, wolves and tigers, along with some other large cats and small canines. I went with my BF, my work bestie, and his GF, who was our tour guide, so it was extra special. I highly recommend in case anyone is every in the RDU area.
I hope the hurricane doesn't cause too much trouble for you. Stay safe!
Also ... apple filling in the challah? Interesting ... I've actually never seen that, but it makes perfect sense for Rosh Hashanah.
