W4D1: easy 5

So, so warm. It was “take Lacey to work day.” Exterminators came to our apartment for an inspection. I hope they didn’t find anything? I think she behaved pretty well. Only a few barking fits!

I was going to try to run and go to yoga again, but I just couldn’t rush myself that much. This whole exercise thing is actually for fun, and when it stops being relaxing, I have to take a step back.

On another note, running with the old iPod means remembering music history, whatever happened to LMFAO?

Also, the whole city was out training in their Shamrock Shuffle shirts, I counted 12. It was almost comical. Had to count myself too, was there a memo somewhere?

Bryon left me with the chocolate chip cookies I made for him. Delicious refueling time!

I am not yet 30… But it is coming alarmingly soon. Like 4 months away.

W3D6: easy 5

I have no trouble going “slow” in the morning. It’s over and done. I went to yoga Thursday and was planning to go again today, but there’s no way my legs are up for any type of warrior pose. I’ll stretch out and make breakfast for runningwithpump instead.

Rest day tomorrow! 21 miles for the week done.

W3D5: easy 4 

On pace and in the city. I wore the shirt from my first 10k 3 years ago. You can start running at 27 and stick with it! 

I was so tired after that race and I barely made it through. What a difference a few years can make. 

Bryon is here and we are getting up way early to get our miles in. Have a good weekend tumblr!

W3D4: easy 4 

This was the day I got fed up with easy pace. I also used my iPod nano for the first time in forever and listened to the alt rock station which sped up my pace more than planned. This felt so natural, and my calves hurt less. 

Then, I went to yoga near work. Same instructor that I really like, different atmosphere. I miss the old place. 

Side note, can this “polar vortex” last forever? The temperature in the afternoon has been heavenly. 

Be my friend on garmin connect? IrlAmy on there too!

W3D4: 4 easy

The weather was quite lovely. I do too much math in my head when I run without music.

W3D3: easy 4 

Kinvara day! I was getting a little bout of shin splints in my brooks launches. I might add a 3rd pair to my rotation, since this is a high mileage plan. I’m taking recommendations. (High arches, tiny feet, mid-foot strike).

My total mileage for the week will be 21. And after 2 off days, that feels like a mountain to climb. I did it make all the way around the lake today.

My pace was just a little too fast, but the sky kept rudely spitting on me.

I do not particularly like running in the rain, but I got it over with. Tomorrow is a glorious, glorious rest day that may involve a significant amount of foam rolling.

If there’s another sequel of “The Matrix”, Billy Hamilton might want to throw his hat into the ring.

Reblogging for runningwithpump. Might be his favorite baseball player right now!
