Winter running face:
Please note tears and snot.
Summer running face:
Sigh. I miss summer.
IT IS COLD OUT THERE! Itâ€™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 Iâ€™ll be able to do longer distances again soon. Iâ€™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!
Itâ€™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 broilerâ€¦ this combo is awesome if you havenâ€™t tried it yet!):
And a ton of parsnip fries.
If I had to eat one lunch for the rest of my lifeâ€¦ this might be it.
What about you? What meal would you want to repeat forever?
