This is going to be one of those TMI tumblr posts
The run went well, over 4 miles, negative splits, good music. Apparently, I just need some Mumford “Hopeless Wanderer” to get me up to pace on the treadmill. When I’m back outside, I think I’m going to turn it into a Fartlek game. I actually ran all the way to 40 minutes despite trying to bargain myself to 30 minutes. The incline on my treadmill would reset to -2.5 whenever I moved it up to 2.0, so that was a really hilarious challenge.
Now the tmi part. There’s a psa here, so stick with me. I had on black dress pants today, so therefore also skimpy underwear. I thought about this when I changed. It was NOT practical underwear to run in. My greatest fear of working out in the morning is forgetting underwear. Therefore, there is extra of both in my gym bag. I should’ve changed. Most painful running decision I’ve made in awhile. And, I didn’t notice how bad the chaffing was until I was in the shower. Moral of the story, running underwear = worth it.
I, also, finally used the last little bit of Beauty Protector’s protect & detangle spray. Post-workout must. I totally need to order more from Birchbox.
And in the vein of my favorite holiday, today I’m thankful for the best roommate ever who made Kung Pao stir fry with extra veggies while I showered. Seriously, best living situation ever.
