Do you remember 2011's "Pumped up Kicks," by Foster the People??? Well they're back with another awesome tune called "Coming of Age" that you can add to your running playlist. :) Why not listen while you read? :)
I always look at Thursday as my 'last' run of the week! Technically it isn't, but when I'm totally zonked from work and training I can 'trick' my mind and body into saying, "Okay, since tomorrow is a day off from physical activity, I guess I can go do an easy 5." ;) Works like a charm.
I gave my body a complete rest day and decided that after such an exhausting week I'd bring this guy out to play at dinner time. :D
My favourite time of the weekend is Saturday Morning. I get to catch up on some much needed sleep and I totally enjoy it (even if it's only until 8:00). One of the awesome things about Saturday morning is the fact that I have no deadlines, only distance. And it never hurts when it's completely beautiful out.
The moment where my patience level dropped to zilch! Grrr.........so close yet so far. And in case you're wondering it DID bump back to less than half seconds later, lol.
The warm temperatures caused a lot of melting, which therefore leads to many puddles that get your feet wet. I didn't even mind since the sun was so warm on my face. It felt just like spring!
While I was rehydrating from losing so much sweat on the run, I decided I'd check on myself in training via my hard copy training log from 2013. Runner's World sent me this as a free gift last year with my calendar and I wrote in that baby every day!
Check out what I was up to on February 22, 2013. :( This is so vivid in my mind. I can recall whining at home about how I had missed so many training runs from a Sinus Infection that then morphed into a chest infection and how envious I'd get when I'd see other runners. I dreamed of the day I could run and train for Boston again. It was a nasty time...lol. Since that bout of illness, I have learned to really appreciate my Health.
First stop, Starbucks. A Grande Café Misto was calling my name.
I did another bunch of errands and then headed over to a sports store to pick up these bad boys so that I could get jacked! ;) Totally kidding of course. I just upped my weight since my 10lb'ers are only good for so many exercises and I really missed the 12s I used to use at the gym. Yes, I always wear runners when I'm out and about. Be amazed at how fancy I am.
|Yeah, my car has 3 running related bumper stickers in total...lol. I'm THAT girl.|
A Definite Link to Click (Runner Jargon translated)
Okay, I try to never post links to boring sites with a ton of information that you could have just googled yourself, so trust me when I say this is HILARIOUS! (if you are a runner that is). Tears were totally running down the corners of my eyes and at one point, I knee slapped. No lie.

Here's a sample of what you'll find, but there are so many more! LOL-pretty sure I'm guilty of most!
Lastly, Lola says thanks for stopping by GGR. Have a wonderful evening!
Do you use a training log? If so what type?
What distance is your long run this weekend?
How funny were those Running translations?!?!?
The Hypothermic Half Marathon is in one week!
