|Don't even ask what's on the table next to it. This home improvement has everything piled everywhere. I think it's the Wii holder.|
So, I got up this morning and I ran. It was the threshold run that I didn't get to do yesterday.
|It literally took me 20 minutes how to figure out how to get this picture uploaded to my blog. - So please check my splits :)|
I had the most problem trying to stay paced. I was supposed to do 2 mile warm up, 6 x 800 @ 9:20 pace (4:36 for the 800) with 1:15 recovery between each 800 and then 1 m cool down. I kept running too fast and then when I tried to slow down a little, I went too slow. The good thing about these runs is that I am working and thinking the whole time and don't think about the fact that I am running hard. However, it's an awful lot of thinking before 5 am. I almost lost count of my 800's. I did however fix my Garmin so that I have .5 mile splits so I only have to watch the time during the 1:15 recovery. I am learning that my Garmin can do so much more than I have ever done with it. Well worth Hubby's hard earned money. Thanks boo! Love ya! Best gift ever.
|Then I rolled it out. Re: the background see above picture caption. :)|
At lunch, (after I drafted the above) I headed up to Jack Rabbit on the Upper East Side to snatch an aqua "I Heart Sweat" shirt before they were no more. Ali (awesome blog - if you don't read it, you should!) will be running her marathon on Sunday so this was the last chance to get one. On the train I realized that I also needed to pick up my bib for the 18 Mile Tune Up @ NY Road Runners Club. Win Win! I actually saw one of my other favorite bloggers there, Theodora there. She was getting her "+1" in by doing bib distribution for the Fifth Avenue Mile. I stopped to say hello to her and then ran back to the train to get back down to work.
So, the moral of the day is... you run, you have a good day. (So far at least)
With that I leave you with yet another picture of my baby girl to make your day, like she does mine.
|She was literally saying "Cheeeseeee"|
Do you have a better day when you run?
Do you watch How I Met Your Mother?
Do you get excited to meet other bloggers? I know it's nerdy, but I do.
Are you sick of my kids' pics yet?
