I love when my Blogger pals do a "Friday 5" or "5 Things Friday" post, so I'm jumping on that wagon for today's post.
1. Getting back to business and pounding out Tempo Runs. I have a love/hate relationship with them just so you know. The idea for my training plan is to run for minutes not distance (as I'm rigidly used to). This one was scheduled for 35 minutes and I think I did a pretty good job
2. Finally replenishing my stash of nuun! Have you tried the Pink Lemonade flavour??? Do it! It will make you day. ;)
3. Taa daa! Anyone who I work with, am close with, lives in the HRM area, LOL, probably heard me whining several weeks ago about how I lost my earring that I didn't even get a chance to wear yet. Well, when I moved all my running books off of my night stand today guess what I found underneath?! I have no idea how it ended up there but I skipped upstairs and called Matt, texted the woman I got it from and alerted them that the missing earring has indeed been found. :D
4. City Run! Yes, in the actual city and not the trail. I met up with Nick today for a good butt kicker of a run. (My words). It was crazy humid and this Genius did not bring her water belt. Rookie mistake. We did a portion of the Blue Nose route from the half marathon and it felt waaaaay harder today with the saturating humidity.....and I sort of felt like hills were popping up out of no where??? ;) I needed this push today and boy was it a good swift kick in the butt of a reminder to get those hills in! I have my first actual hill repeat session in two weeks and now I'm psyched. :D Thanks Nick for the run!
|Man, I look great when I'm at near death from dehydration! ;) NOT! LOL|
I hope you have had a spectacular week!
Heads up: I am NOT running in the before mentioned race tomorrow. I'm saving my legs for the Tely 10! :)
What are you highlights from the week?
Any running/racing plans for the weekend?
Favourite Starbucks drink: GO!
Thanks so much for checking in on this fabulous Friday with GGR. Have a beautiful day! And Lola says "Hi," or "don't even think of interrupting my nap."
