What a day! Finally some time to blog I have been go go go!
I actually woke up feeling great today despite doing my long run yesterday. 15 miles isn’t really “long”, but it is a heck of a lot longer than I have been running. I guess this is a good sign that my body is handling the increase in mileage well I can’t wait for the 20 milers!
I had to be at work a little earlier than normal, so I was running solo today.
Distance: 9.2 miles
Average Pace: 7:37 miles
I was actually pretty fast today Where the hell did that come from? My body was feeling great though! Those massages seriously make me feel like a new person. I want another one!
I actually enjoyed getting a run in by myself. I haven’t been running alone nearly as much anymore, but I think that is going to change for the rest of the month. My schedule the next few weeks is completely nuts, so my running is going to be either really early or in the mid afternoon. I am working 40 hours a week and I really need to buckle down on my online class. I have to squeeze in four tests at the test lab in the next few weeks along with my tutoring sessions (more on that later).
I also miss the “me” time while running solo. Running is usually my time to reflect and have some time to myself, but when I am running with a buddy, that time is taken away. I LOVE running with other people, but not every single day. Hey, I need my space. I think I will stick with a few solo runs every week at the minimum to keep me focused and help keep my eye on the prize. What are your thoughts on this?
My run kick started a great, but long day. I had to work until 4:00 and then I had tutoring until 7:30. It is going to be like that most of the days during the week until I get back on track with this class. I have really slacked off on it this summer and it is really overwhelming. It is one of those “weed out” classes and actually 1/3 of the kids who take it don’t pass. Thanks for telling me! Haha. Anyways, I found a great tutor and he is only $20 an hour, which is pretty much a steal. I learned more tonight in 2.5 hours than I have the whole summer trying to figure it out myself. Yeah, I think I will stick with it.
Other than being super busy, it’s going to be a great week. I have some fun stuff planned for this weekend and I can’t wait for it to get here!
How is your Monday going?
This is a good song.
Lea Michele is really hot too. That is all I have for today
