After Saturday’s indoor 13 miles and Sunday’s outdoor 18 miles, my legs were so heavy!! I got it done with some Monday Motivation from Britney.
Food for thought: I’ve been running on the treadmill more than ever lately and I just recently read this article on the Runner’s World site: Biomechanics Expert Debunks Treadmill-Running Myths. I have always thought that the treamill should have a minimum 1% incline to simulate running outdoors. The article says that that rule only applies if you’re running a 7:09 pace or faster.
I also wrote my 200th Post! Time flies when you’re having fun. 🙂
It was National Banana Bread Day, so I baked a loaf of my Brown Sugar Banana Bread…YUM!!! I had to send it work with Jason so I wouldn’t eat the whole thing myself.
Due to last week’s ice storm, UPS stopped delivering for the entire week. I tried to be understanding and patient (just a few of my character flaws). Of course the UPS man arrived Monday night when Jason was home. He rang the bell and we found this tower on the front porch…busted!
I don’t hide packages, but they don’t draw attention when they arrive one at a time. This did not go unnoticed!
We kicked off Fleet Feet’s Winter Speed Session with an incredible group! (It’s not too late to sign up!)
I ran 5 miles of warm-up laps and drills.
6 x 800m (400m recovery jog)
1 mile cool down
It was a tough workout!
Track roadkill! Coach Christi Beth needs a cart like this one to drive around and pick up dead runners.
Usually Fleet Feet gives the group a shirt for that season’s speed session. This year we got toboggans!!!
The upside to a tough track workout: I knew that I was going to see Robin at Franklin Massage that afternoon!! I’ve been seeing her every other week and she’s played a big role in my recovery.
A few weeks ago, Chipotle was having a Sofrita’s giveaway. So, Jason and I decided to use our freebies for dinner. Because hello…Taco Tuesday! Please tell me Taco Tuesday is a thing in your house, too.
26 Signs You’re Addicted to Chipotle from BuzzFeed
For those that don’t live in Brentwood, TN, our Chipotle and Starbucks are ALMOST beside each other. There’s a froyo shop in the middle. TRIFECTA!!!
And lastly a sneak peak into the glamorous world of blogging. I’m writing this with crazy hair, from the floor, sitting on the heat vent, with two snuggling pups.
Do you do Taco Tuesday in your house?
Do you set your treadmill at 1% incline? I have always used 1% as my base incline.
Do you have a favorite track distance? Least Favorite? We call the 800m the “Devil’s Distance”
