Happy Thursday, y'all.
Lazy Bones didn't wake up early for a run this morning. I didn't feel bad at all though. I needed the sleep quite badly. Sitting in workshops and conferences seems to be really putting some stress on my mental capacity. I knew I had to get a run in right after work.
Got home, got dressed and got my rump going.
So I finished the scheduled 3-miler in 30:16 minutes. Basically, I ran at 2-minute intervals, with the resting portion set at about 10:55/mile and the speedier portions set at anywhere between 8:30ish/mile to 9:30ish/mile. I had to stop the treadmill twice for a few seconds to get some sips of water from my bottle.
After the run, I stretched and stretched and also did 30 crunches on the big bouncy ball.
Yes, I know I better keep my day job as a speech-language pathologist because I can't paint my nails properly. See all that spots on my left foot? That's my badge of honor from battling with fireants a few days before July 4th this year. Twelve stings, just in case you were counting. It was an itchy mess and it sure didn't make running fun!
How was your Thursday? Do you have any "battle scars" you would like to share?
