I really should have checked the weather report before I got dressed for my run this morning. Long sleeves were a bad call.
Feels Like: 93°
Run: I set off in my long sleeves for a tempo run. The goals was to do a 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down with 5 tempo miles in the middle. But, the hills kill me and I didn’t get faster on the miles going out. Luckily, when I turned around, it was downhill.
Here is the breakdown:
Mile 1: 8:41
Mile 2: 8:41
Mile 3: 9:11 The speed isn’t happening uphill
Mile 4: 9:03 (turned around at 3.5)
Mile 5: 8:13 See! It’s down hill on the way home, but all up hill going out
Mile 6: 8:25
Mile 6.7: 9:21 (cool down)
Moral of the story: I need to find a downhill race if I have a prayer at all.
Before I left I had a small bowl of this new to me cereal. It’s dee-lish, but in a dangerous way. I used to overeat cereal on a daily basis. I’m a lot better now, but sometimes that tired snacking gets me. Better be careful.
Plus some AB on the spoon because I really wanted it. And that’s reason enough.
By the time I ate breakfast it was 10:30 and I
probably waited way too long to eat. I couldn’t get full and ended up eating pasta leftovers and a roll with pumpkin cream cheese too. Now I’m too full! I need to take a step back and Feel my Fullness (IE step 5).
I let the cat explore on the patio this morning. I’m afraid he’s going to run away in an attempt to look for his old home, so I’m scared to let him out. BUT – he was an inside/outside cat at my mom’s. He had a huge yard to explore and I know he used to have the best time climbing my mom’s avocado trees and chasing lizards. I’m torn as to how much freedom I can give him while still keeping him safe.
I’m putting together a training program for my next race today! This time I’m going to through in some nutrition goals so I show up at the finish line exactly where I want to be It’s going to be bad ass. Just saying.
Question: Quick! What’s your beverage of choice right now?!
I’m down for water, Diet Dr. Pepper and Iced Tea these days…
