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!
