Can I get a high five?? (Or eat my camera? Same thing.)
It’s barely 10am, I had nowhere to be that required me to be up early, but I’ve already run 6 miles (I tweeted that I ran 5, but I realized that I messed up my Garmin again, so it’s 6!) and lifted. Yesterday, I was just not feeling running alone today, so I tweeted to see if anyone wanted to run today, and my girl Ashley said she did. She ran over here and met me at 6:45am, and we ran to the river.
We split after a little after a mile, and I continued running downtown. I got to 2.5, and I just couldn’t stomach turning around and running the same 2.5 miles again, so I just kept running down until I got to my old ‘hood and went to the Equinox down there to lift before hopping on the subway. I’m getting a little sick of running the same route over and over again–I really need to start mixing things up.
I had a serious craving for a spinach feta wrap, so I stopped at Starbucks on my way home for a wrap and iced coffee. And yes, with one fell swoop of a Sharpie, I became a dude. (That cup says Theadore. Serious fail.)
Speaking of dudes, this little one was still sleeping when I got home. He’s not training for a marathon.
But I am! I know it’s super-early in the training season, but this was a workout that made me feel really strong and excited for the marathon. If I keep strong and injury-free like this, I think 4:30 is possible.
