This week was the first time since reuniting with my running love that I truly felt like a runner. From having a couple of good runs, to getting my very first toe blister, to buying new running clothes. This week, has been one of best thus far.
I won’t keep you guys waiting anymore, here it goes.
Number of miles ran: 14
Workout thought for Monday: wow, this isn’t half bad.
Workout thought for Tuesday: I pretty much kick a$$. Yes, I realize most people kick a$$ if they are only running 2 miles, but who are you to judge? Isn’t there something in Ms. McGlovers church-house bible about that? If you are lost about aforementioned joke, laugh anyway, then check out the previous post.
Workout thought for Thursday: this workout officially qualifies as a Fartlek….ouch!
Workout thought for Saturday: Treadmill running sucks kangaroo
butt…Part three! But I stuck it out and 5 miles and 52 minutes later, I did it. This was the longest I’ve EVER been on a treadmill. How’d it feel, see first line of this section.
What’s on my I-Phone radio
while running: Ok, this is random but I decided to listen to the Anita Baker Pandora station this week, and what I found is I actually allow myself to relax more on my easy runs when the music is calmer. However, I was dying trying to get through Saturday’s long run on that station. It lasted 2 minutes and I switched back to Ciara with the quickness.
My save-all song:
This week, anything Anita. Though she doesn’t play that often on the Anita Baker station. Go figure!
Low moment: skipping my strength workout yet again, and on a day I was snowed in with nothing else to do. Oh wait, except make homemade Cinnamon buns.
High Moment: I bought non-cotton (stop the snickering) running pants. I feel so official now.
End of the week thought: I can’t choose between “ok snow, stop it already!” and
“Megan McGlover for president!”
Hope all of your runs are going well!
