Hit all of my scheduled miles (17).
Swapped out hills for speed work and it was SO FUN.
3 days of the Suck Less Program
Here's a shocker... I WENT TO YOGA!! It's a Mind/Body for Runners class for the PCRF VIP (ie, Fundraiser) team at a local 24 Hour, at 6am Wednesday. It's really a great class. It's just so freaking early. But I did it. Finally.
My Thursday Run was SO AWESOME. I posted about this last week, but I'm still stoked about it.
The yoga class felt GOOD. My hamstrings have been tight, and they were TIRED after this.
I know Adidas isn't a big player in the running world, but they are one of the sponsors for PCRF's VIP team, and they've hooked us up with some shoes once we hit a certain fundraising goal. I've been wearing them for my shorter runs during the week, and... so far I love them. Plus, it's an excellent compiment to a grey running skirt I picked up for cheap a few weeks ago.
I've COMPLETED THE SQUATS CHALLENGE! Last night was exhaustion test night, and I did all 200 squats. Done! Next up: Adding hand weights. Hm.
#2 beat The H in Rock Band or something. More than once. She's a pro.
My Tuesday run was pretty crap-tastic, for no real reason. Just.. bleh.
My Long Run sucked hard. It was 40* when I was getting ready, and overcast, so I dressed for that. By the time I was about 3 miles in, it was BLAZING SUN and 55*. I was sweating. A lot. And by 7 miles, it was overcast and breezy again, and now I'm sweaty, wet, and COLD. Eff you, weather.
My pace was also too fast. I was about 50 sec faster than my long run pace should have been. That included a 5 minute break to walk slowly and text The H about how stupid and miserable it was. I just wanted to be DONE.
The training run goes directly past my house. I can literally see where I live, and it took everything in me not to just walk home.
