Training Peaks sent me a 5 mile Marathon Pace Run to complete. You totally can't tell, but it was so chilly along my route that my eyelashes had tear-sicles on them! :0 I had to keep pinching them with my fingers so that they didn't freeze together. I'm pretty sure that only Runners would be crazy enough to go through this....lol.
There is something weirdly awesome about hearing 'The Sign' at 6 a.m. via Songza while straightening your hair. ;)
My Friday 'Workout,' REST DAY. Yes Please!
My PT thinks he'll be discharging me on Monday :D I'm on cloud 9, even though my visits involve things like playing dress up with 'Wayne,' The One-legged Skeleton, LOL. I was told to caption this "I'm too sexy for my skin." LOL.
|I think I found Wayne's other leg!|
I'm on the mend. Tell Yo friends. ;)
Super duper awesome Friday mail: Neon dots!
And my other non-running sock fave these days....
One of my students read a book to me this morning during my Early Literacy teaching called "Making a Pizza." He didn't know it, but it made me crave pizza all day! Look what I ended up including in my dinner:
An exhausting week of work and training equals one wild Friday night where you pass out on the couch before 10 p.m. True story.
This dog is always up for sleeping in!
But some of us have to get our run in Miss Lola. ;)
My workout today was a Pace Run @ 8 min miles for 6 miles. As badly as I wanted to keep going to the Post Office (which would have given me a 7 mile run) I didn't. I stuck to the plan. I am really working hard for this Marathon Training Cycle to stick to it and not veer off. Boston Bound will make me a stronger runner if I follow it properly. So far, I've stayed on track. :)
My run today felt exactly like Spring. It was above 0 degrees for the first time in forever and the sidewalks were clear for the first time in forever. Great run!
P.S. I'm in dire need of new sneaks. Looks like I'll be chatting with Hashem today. ;)
