It's been a loooooong 3 weeks of hittin' the 'mill for some miles, (womp womp). Of course that is with the exception of last Sunday's 13.1 miles of Ice Capades, I mean (cough) half marathon. I have to tell you, I was super duper sore ALL over the next morning, like the type of DOMS that have your eyebrows hurting and all. :( So let's just say that my next run was not until Tuesday.
Here are some of my TM runs....
|I definitely did not notice this sign until I was at home swiping through my pics...LOL. "I didn't choose the treadmill life. The treadmill life chose me." ;)|
Okay, I just have to say, everyone on the TM is all like "lalalala, I'm just here running and watching TV or whatever," and I'm over here all like "OMG I can't look up or I'll fly back on the thigh squeezy machine." I'm pretty sure I almost fell 71 times in 8 miles. :| Why the heck can't I run AND watch the TV???
See our streets were looking a lot like this for a very long time and this photo was taken a day or two before they were 'Good,' not 'Great' just 'Good.'
|Excuse the fuzzy pic, but Lola was just too busy to slow down and wait, lol.|
And some Career benchmarks were reached! :D
|I finally secured my Probationary 2 Contract...it was only 9 years in the making. ;)|
|Obviously I was racing the chick on the left, obviously. ;)|
That moment when you realize one of your compression socks made it's way into the DRYER! :(
Lola the demon dog apparently stares at me when I'm sleeping...lol.
|"Oh, were you asleep?"|
|I ran on actual pavement with actual hills and actual wind and it was awesome!|
Sam and I had some macaroons to celebrate our first successful neighbourhood run in forever!
Sunday's long run fuel...
I had 18 miles to do today....18! I wasn't going to run along the main road even though it would offer a lot of distance because traffic is just too busy for me with no sidewalk. I ran 75 000 loops of the neighbourhood to make up my big 18.
Along the way I noticed some neighbours got creative with their ice...lol.
|"We were here"|
I started getting hungry at 8.5 miles, and then at 9.5 and 14.5 miles I had a Gu.
|Good runners stash their GUs in their pocket or trash them. ;) Don't be a litterbug!|
Now if you need me, I'll be enjoying my Tim's Birthday Cake Timbit. :)
Thanks for stopping by the GGR blog. Have a beautiful day!
How was your weekend in running?
