First things first: I have run for 30 days straight!!! (Bravo Heather I know...lol). Matt and I just sort of started streaking and I truly decided on Friday that I was done. Then I realized that I was only 2 days shy of 30, so in true stubborn runner fashion I kept chugging along until I saw the big 30! Obviously not every run was super fast or super far or super hard. I was wise and snuck in a few super easy 2 milers to stay on streak mode and also I didn't want to get injured. Amen.
Here's a bit of what I've been up to this week....
I am running on the TM as a warm up lately. I decided this is a good idea so that when the fist of winter pounds down on us Nova Scotians I'll be totally used to the TM and will not almost fall off like last winter. ;)
Every evening by the time Lola is walked and dinner is cooked/prepped, it is Dark O'Clock when I get out. It's usually super quiet and I see the same people walking dogs, or people walking for fitness.
On Wednesday evening I ran sort of long because I had a full on marathon session of Parent-Teacher Interviews the next day, womp womp. I really enjoy meeting the parents and chatting about their kiddos, but I get super nervous!
Oh she glows!
My Vice Principal (who is also a runner) and I snuck out between sessions during the supper break to squeeze in a short 5k run. We sort of underestimated the trail and got (cough) lost, completed 7.something km and had to sprint back to school with Subway subs in hand so that there was time to shower before the evening interviews, lol. Good times.
After not getting home until 9 the previous night from Parent-Teacher, this gas station coffee tasted amaze-balls.
On Friday I was ready to call an end to this 'streak' thing. When Matt informed me that it was day 28 I decided I may as well hang on until at least 30? ;)
|This is my "Friday evening I'm exhausted and can't wait to get home to put on PJs and watch the Vampire Diaries but I'm running anyway" run.|
So check out this hill just past 3mi on the elevation chart. It goes on until the end of time and when I get to the top I always feel like vomiting. This will be my Boston Marathon Mojo hill this winter, (virtual fist pump).
Still Loving Starbucks
I realize it probably appears that I am a coffee snob who only drinks Starbucks but the truth is actually that I will drink any type of coffee. It just so happens that I got a ton of Starbucks to spend from gift cards from my big Bday! :D
So check out this reindeer sweater that I bought for 50% off today! I'm definitely wearing this to our Girl's night holiday get together.
I hope you had an awesome Saturday and didn't get trampled by shoppers at Black Friday Sales! ;)
Have you ever run streaked?
Favourite type of coffee?
Did you hit up any sales this weekend?
