This week has been good so far running wise. I did a four mile run Monday night after work, it was pretty hot and then I did a little over six miles this morning, it was beautiful out! I also did hills on both of those runs. I must say running in the AM is a totally different feeling than running after work. I wake up in the morning ready to go, running calms my head and I needed calming this AM! My run this am pretty much went like this:
Start: a little rocky, trying to find my stride (usually takes about a quarter of a mile to set my pace) I listened to that song Titanium on repeat three times until I past mile one ha! I am a classic repeat offender. If I like a song I play the crap out of it!
Middle: Easy, breezy. Had a nice pace going, faster than my long distance paces, stoped at a water fountain for a quick drink, the weather was breezy and the pier was beautiful.
End: Easier than expected. Hills are starting to just feel like part of the run. I expect them, I don't fear them, I coast through them. In fact I look forward to them now. They are always at the end of my run because I try to challenge myself at the point when I will be most tired. I know as soon as I get to the top then it's an easy run down. I really look forward to it now, who would have thunk it!
That is it in a nutshell. Well that is it TODAY. I am not sure how anyone else is when running but sometimes I feel like it's any given day how I will feel. I might feel like total poop tomorrow.
My run schedule is going to be a little weird the next couple of days. I'm going to LA to visit two of my besties and I will be running on different terrain and at different times. I have scheduled it out so I definitely will not miss them, but it will be a challenge to my will to get them done. I am sure that I would much rather drink wine and chat all night every night, but that is out of the question as far as the nights before my runs :( Damn the man! I will try check in while I'm there. I definitely will take a lot of pictures to log what it looks like to run in Hollywood ha! Maybe I'll see a celebrity! Here's hoping!
