Every Friday morning should begin with mini cinnamon rolls with coworkers. :) We had PD for the morning and then hit up the teacher favourite lunch joint: ChaBaa Thai. Life is good.
Friday was my Rest day as you probably suspected. It was a good thing too since I had so many things to do after school at work and then get groceries on the way home. By the time I got home, I was completely zonked!
Lola and I enjoyed a lovely walk before she headed to the doggie spa for the day. Or in other words, got her hair did. ;)
Soooo, our streets are still sort of snow covered :S But it's all good. My run today wasn't really affected by it except for the first and final 1/2 mile. Everywhere else I ran was clear. :)
Distant Runners posted something on facebook this week about double thumb holes, and I never really thought much about it before then. I always double hook the thumb holes.......only one is hooked over for the pic but I ran with both covered over. ;)
I did an out-and-back route today that felt all uphill for the first 3.5 miles. The funny thing is that it didn't appear to descend quite as much as I anticipated on the way home. Weird how that happens. Between 3.5 and 4 miles the head wind of the year made an appearance. Wow, it felt like I was running backwards at one point. :S
Aaaaand, my potty mouth was activated when the hot water hit me in the shower: OUCH! I am still puzzled how I managed to chafe on a 7 mile run. I did dress quite warm since I thought it was colder than it was, but running less than an hour should not have caused this! I need to remember to put a Band-Aid there for my long run tomorrow.
Look who Courteney and I met post-run!!! Baby O finally made an appearance on Friday and he is even cuter than I imagined. Just wook at him. ((baby voice)) ;) His Mama rocks! She was at the gym just hours before she went into labour......there's nothing Idle about her Hide.
I've finally added a page element to my blog titled "Race Recaps." I have been thinking of doing this for months now, and have not gotten around to it in the thought that it would take forever. It really didn't and was super quick and easy. Just click on a race title and my blog post from that run will appear. :) My 2014 Race Calendar has started to grow as well on the "Start Line Schedule" page. Check it out!
Tomorrow's long run isn't that long. It's a scale back week in mileage for me. I have 10 miles to clock.
What's your distance for your long run this week?
What do you do with double thumb holes? Single or pull them both over?
Thanks for stopping by GGR and have a wonderful day!
