Thing 1 – This morning I did an hour of run/walk intervals on the treadmill, because it’s raining here. Ordinarily, I’d love to run in the rain but once I saw the first lightning strike, I decided to make peace with the treadmill instead, and so it was. 5.15 miles, (really slow miles) with quite a bit of walking, but I got it done. I won’t lie it was hard, although I used to be a big fan of the treadmill, not so much anymore. But when my inner voice said quit, quit, QUIT, I said:
I Got this! I GOT THIS!
Thing 2 – Have y’all seen this? The one where the runner guy takes his runner girlfriend out on a long run and then when they finish he shows her the GPS data, and it looks like this:
Thing 3 – This is a great video I’ve been using to help with my form. It’s pretty awesome and you should try it. Besides anyone who runs a sub 2:20 marathon can probably teach us a little something, don’t you think?
Thing 4 – Lauren Fleshman on the cover of the latest Runners World Magazine. Holy Abs woman, she looks amazing and you really need to read her article, “Why the 5K is freaking awesome”. She’s not only strong and sexy, she’s incredibly intelligent and I just love her. I might have to make her the focus of Woman Crush Wednesday….
Thing 5 – This talking dog video:
Now go out there and have a fantastic weekend, run, laugh, have fun, and stay safe and tell me something random about your week, Go!
