Best of both Worlds

Remember when I said I had an awesome run planned?  Well I didn’t lie.  It was awesome!

After work I headed up to a nearby lake to get my run on.  The weather was perfect.  There was a cool breeze and not a cloud in the sky.  I met with a friend and we had planned on running 2 easy loops around the lake for a total of 7 miles.  We got 7 miles in but I don’t know if I would say it was easy!   We hauled ass actually.   I don’t think I have time for a speed workout tomorrow but I don’t even care.  I am calling today tempo.  At one point we were holding a 7:18 pace.  Get it guuuurl.

Unfortunately I suck and  have no pictures of how awesome the lake is. I do, however, have a picture of my awesome running buddy.  Can’t you see him 😛

When I got home I was instantly bored.  Since it was so nice out I decided to head out for a few more miles…3 to be exact.  This time I for real  took it nice and easy.  I put my music on blasting and just ran.

Todays runs were perfect.  I got to push myself and have company doing it…. misery apparently does love company 😛  But I also got in some time to myself with just the road and the music.  2 perfect runs and 10 awesome miles.  AWESOME I TELL YA!

I’m eating eggs again.  Did I tell you that?  I mean.  I don’t know how I feel about it.  I want to eat them.  But sometimes I feel like I have to force myself.  Really, it’s just an excuse for me to eat ketchup early in the morning.  It helps too that eggs keep me full for so long.

Tonight I was craving salt.  And sweet.   And rice pudding.  Cottage cheese + tons of cinnamon = fake rice pudding.  problem solved!

I plan on hangin with the puppers the rest of the night.  After the miles I did today I should ice my knee.  Should. It doesn’t hurt and isn’t swollen. I am rockin some sweet compression sleeves for my calfs calves lower legs since they were sort of sore on the runs.

See ya in the morning!
