Last night after I finished my boring post, I had some quiet time in front of the tv and watched a movie. Friends With Kids. Definitely a good movie! While I watched the movie I also made sure to drink tons of water in preparation for today’s run.
Right before the movie ended I made a last-minute decision…. Jbone’s birthday is in a week but I won’t be around since I am getting CrossFit certified next weekend (yikes!). I decided to make him search for his gift a week early since he can use it on a business trip this week.
What does the best girlfriend in the entire world get her awesome guy? Oh just the newest Ipad. Of course I made him go upstairs to come right back downstairs in search of that little gem, but I would say it was worth it. He was more than surprised.
This morning I got up nice and early to head out for my run and hopefully beat some heat. Well, I beat the heat just not the humidity. Wow it was muggy out this morning! Anddddd…my mental game wasn’t there. Not sure my deal this morning. Rather than a regular long run today I had a stamina run where I had to complete a few miles, run an hour at faster than race pace and finish with sprints. I kept stopping. I kept psyching myself out about the time I think. I don’t really know what it was but I am not super thrilled with how my results were. I hit the times I needed but it was much harder than it should have been. I really need to work on my mental game. Lately that has been lacking and in running, I think, is just as much mental as it is physical.
I got home and was the sweatiest I had ever been in all of ever. I am trying to make sure to rehydrate today but I am doing a lousy job.
The rest of the day I spent it with my three best friends. I especially liked hanging with this one 😉
Any exciting Saturday night plans?
