Hey all. Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday so far. Mine’s been a little crazy, I haven’t had any time to sit down since 0730! Obviously I know I’m not the only one with crazy busy days but, man, knowing that I’m not going to have any time to do my work until 2100 or later is really agitating. I’m trying to just accept it because there isn’t much (read: anything) I can do to change my Wednesday schedule but it’s so hard to do.
Onto running though! Today was a recovery run + lifting day and I feel really good about it. The run started off sooooo slow. Honestly the pace was 10:00 for the first few miles! I like to keep my recovery pace around 9:30 (well really closer to 9 but it’s smarter for me to go slower) and it was an ego knock to see those 10s but I gotta do what I gotta do to do what I wanna do (ie: run slower today so that I can hammer home a great race in April). My legs did warm up and pick it up by the end and my overall average pace was 9:26. I’ll take it! Whoo-hoo.
Plus the weather was pretty nice. Yes it was still coldish (~21*) but it was a weird mix of sun and flurries. There was a dusting of snow overnight and *very* light snow when I left for the run. I like this kind of precipitation, just enough that it’s nice to look at and wander about it but not enough that it sticks. And by the end of the run the sun was shining and I felt good bringing it home.
My lifting was a bit hard today but in a good way. I definitely felt like my legs and arms were working hard but not completely exhausted and drained. I’m always a bit worried that after Tuesday and Thursdays of really fast workouts my muscles are going to be exhausted walking into the gym and lifting would be pointless. Not the case so far which is very reassuring. I like having a spring in my step after a workout rather than feeling like death. Death = no bueno.
Speaking of death, well not really but sickness: my nose is starting to clear up. No help with the pressure in my ear and face but I’ve only been on the antibiotic for 24 hours. Hopefully soon though especially since I’m on a heavy hitter. And thanks to those who called me a champ and whatnot for sticking with my workouts with it: it really hasn’t impacted my daily living just my sleep. The only time I’m really in pain/discomfort is when I lay down. Super annoying because when I crawl into bed at night I just want to crash!
And LOST?! Ummmm I’m not quite sure I can say that it was amazingness last night but I can definitely see this season being amazing. I suppose that I’m not impressed because it was mostly a setting things up and confusing the hell out of the viewers type of episode. I have faith though and am sooo happy it’s back on.
Okay sooooo lame post I know! I have to run off to my Quantum class. Tomorrow is tempo Thursday so I will hopefully kick butt and be really excited in my post haha. But check out these giveaways from Tricia and Mel and Mary. Pretty sweet 🙂
