What does all that mean to you? Perhaps not much but essentially, I am going to focus a bit more on some of the images I am sharing with you and aim to get action shots. However, since I workout solo 99.999% of the time, this is a huge challenge but let's see what I can come up with.
I did manage to get myself up quite early this morning but after reflecting on my training plan up until race day on the 1st, I realized my Daily Mile goal to run 10 miles today doesn't truly fit. Yes, I want to run. But more importantly, I feel like I need to stick somewhat closer to my training plan right now so I can do what I want to do on the 1st. And the plan said to run an easy 5 miles. Alrighty then!
On the way down to the gym I tried a sesame seed Bumble Bar from the Healthy Surprise package that arrived yesterday. I learned about this company in some giveaways and couldn't count on winning so opted to start getting some monthly treats. I am already in love with the company idea, product, and customer service. And this bar.....delicious!!!!
It turns out it was probably a good idea I changed my running plans. All the treadmills were full! I ended up doing a warm-up on the Stairmaster for a few while I waited for a treadmill to be available. Thank goodness I lucked out. However, I should eat a bit more prior to an early morning run. I was starving hungry halfway through. My stomach was grumbling. But I completed my run with an average pace of 8'43", day 82 completed.
And if you have been following my blog for awhile you probably have heard me talk about stretching, foam rolling, and using The Stick at work to help alleviate some of those pesky aches here and there. Yep, I truly do have a massage stick at work and it does get used. I wish I had a photo of all the "pen marks" on my dress last week. I couldn't figure out where they were coming from and later realized, it was The Stick. So today, jeans will go well with my "relaxation" time.
Today I am grateful for:
- Others inspiring me to think outside the box
- Draw Something with Friends
- Healthy Surprise
- Schools that are great early learning centers
