I’m OFFICIALLY on VACATION!!!
Yesterday afternoon I was a tired bear. I got home and planned on napping but knew I would wake up a cranky B. So instead I hung out with my Besties.
The only reason I gave my dogs human names is so I don’t look completely weird when I tell people I spend all my time with Jake and Lola.
Seriously, look at how cute those suckers are!
For our walk I brought along some coffee since I skipped my nap.
You need to try the french toast coffee if you have a Keurig. Dude, so delish.
After my walk yesterday I went for a run. I let the house with no watch or phone and didn’t even notice the time when I left. I went a completely new route and just ran. It felt so nice. I don’t know how slow or fast I went, but that was the point. Just to run… No pressure, no time, no music…just run. CLEARLY I am a freak and had to know how far I went so I mapped it out as soon as I got home. 4.5 miles. Thats the perfect in between distance for days when I just want a nice easy run.
This morning I woke up and did speed work on the treadmill. I did five 800’s. After 2 I was like “wow, this is nice, I think I will do 6.” After 3 I was like ” KILL ME, MAKE IT STOP.” I met in the middle and completed 5 800’s. With warm up, cool down and the walking in between the sprinting, I did a little over 4 miles.
I used to do speed work at a track with one of the best coaches ever. We were hardcore. She always pushed me to my max and I think it really helped me a ton! We live farther away from each other now so it isn’t possible, but I am hoping that next week I can make it to the track to do some speed work OUTSIDE.
I am gonna go get my vacation on. And I guess I should start packing!
Body pump is on the agenda for tonight! Followed by the celebratory vacation brew or two 🙂
