Winter running face:
Please note tears and snot.
Summer running face:
Sigh. I miss summer.
IT IS COLD OUT THERE! It’s really getting difficult to motivate myself to go outside and run (no gym membership so dreadmilling it is not an option). But once I get going, it fine.
I set out for my first solo 5.0 miler in a month and a half (all the other ones have been with Nicole). Before leaving, some bread and hummus:
I kept myself occupied by thinking about my upcoming race goals. Hopefully, my IT band is beginning to cooperate and I’ll be able to do longer distances again soon. I’m eyeing some spring-time Half Marathons and would love to set a new PR (my PR current is 1:58). It would be awesome to clock in under 1:55!
It’s funny how thinking about future races can subconsciously increase your speed!
- Distance: 5.0 miles
- Duration: 47:45
- Mile 1: 9:37
- Mile 2: 9:40
- Mile 3: 9:52
- Mile 4: 9:46
- Mile 5: 8:53
Came home and made a hearty lunch.
Three slices of French bread; one with hummus and the other two with cheddar cheese and apples (the cheese + apple ones went under the broiler… this combo is awesome if you haven’t tried it yet!):
And a ton of parsnip fries.
If I had to eat one lunch for the rest of my life… this might be it.
What about you? What meal would you want to repeat forever?
