Oh yeah! Let me try to be short on this post since I have quite a bunch to do today.
I ran my long run today. Eight miles. Eight miles on the treadmill. Guess who feels like a lab hamster right now? Ahem. I do! I'm not going to lie. It was not 100% fun like hamsters made it out to be. I almost went bonkers as I plopped one foot in front of another for forever.
Turns out running is a mental sport. And I must be a mental patient. I ran the 8 miles into 2 segments because I thought it would hurt less and make the 8-miles more palatable. Yeah right!
So, first, I ran 3 easy miles.
Then, I ran another 5 miles.
Just because I am such a sucker for torture, I ran another 0.28 miles to complete my 3rd virtual race hosted by MCM Mama. It's her birthday.
So, there you go. A grand total of 8.28 miles in 1 hour 37 minutes at about 11:39/mile pace.
After my run, I went home and took a good semi-cold shower. Does that count as like a ice bath?
And then, I drove to MacDonalds. I know. Don't judge. I got some yummies for my belly.
Chocolate milk, anyone?
And pancakes. And a hashbrown.
Now I have to read that Consumer Reports Used Car Buying Guide.
