Mizuno weightless tanks are amazing for hot summer runs!
Monday: My Monday was awesome because I got home from work and these beautiful Mizuno Wave Sky shoes arrived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was crazy excited!!!
It was also the one year birthday of the BLT Runners!!!! We celebrated in style post run with a delicious Costco cake...mmm!
|LOL I had to post this photo of the BLTlyweds...just kidding!|
"Heck yeah, I'll take a corner piece!"
|Thanks for the Cake!|
And I listened to this song on repeat. I tend to do that...lol.
So much deliciousness!
Wednesday: Oh my goodness Wednesday was Global Running Day as you probably know, and I wasn't exactly sure when I'd fit my run in because we had a retirement dinner after school for our Phys. Ed. teacher Brad! It was so delicious but I was reminded why I shouldn't run on a full belly of pasta....oh boy! It felt like a brick was in my belly the whole 4 miles.
|It was almost 9 before I left for my run but I wasn't going to miss running on GRD!!!|
This year at MRW I'm doing the Sunset 5k and Saturday afternoon 15km trail run!
Thursday: I was soooo tired on Thursday I did not want to run...at all. The only thing that pushed me out the door was that Friday would be a rest day and I was looking forward to that. #teachertired
|Facebook told me on Satuday that I had my Garmin for one year now!!!|
The funny thing about this run was that I was all sad a few weeks ago because a Strava segment I created was never showing up on my runs. I realized when I got home and uploaded my run that it DID work...I was just running it in the wrong direction! LOL.
p.s. Now that I know how to create segments Strava users, expect to see them pop up all over my runs! ;)
Friday: My Friday sort of sucked. :( I had to leave work at lunch because my eye was very irritated and swollen..and RED! I went to the doctor and got some medicine so my leg massage was cancelled for the day because I couldn't imagine laying face down for an hour with an inflamed eye.
Saturday: Saturday I felt a bit better but the sun was blazing! I left way to late for my run, (which was planned speed work). It did not go as planned but I still got in a few fast miles. 3 mile warm up, 3.1 miles hard and 2 mile cool down.
|Matt aqnd Lola are the best photographers...lol.|
Matt and I enjoyed some Saturday nachos later that day!
Sunday: Today I wanted to do a sort of longish run but not too long. So I decided between 10-13 miles would be good. I slogged through the heat once again for 12.5 miles and when I got home I drank ALL THE LIQUIDS!!!!
