I spent mine back at my old college stomping grounds with the gal pals, eating nachos, late night pizza, and fireball shots.
Just like the old days…except for far less drinks and passing out at midnight. We have officially surpassed the college days.
After the drive home and a round of grocery shopping, the little bit of daylight left and a whole 2 hours of actual sleep, I knew my 9 mile long run was not gunna happen. This whole daylight savings is really grinding my running gears.
I refuse to torture myself that long on the treadmill. Instead, I took it easy and planned to somehow sneak it in tomorrow. Plus I’m really anxious to see how the vitamin C works out.
I did manage to get in a tough, but oh so rewarding tempo run on Friday. I averaged a 9:20 pace, even with my slow starts and finish, and brief walking period. These are the kinds of runs that make you feel so strong and remember why you love pushing yourself through.
This is your brain on running.
Since I have a recipe post coming to you later this week, I thought I would take my half-awake (because I’m optimistic) mind off of thinking too much, and share some of my favorite posts recently. Here’s some link lovin’ for your Monday!
