Ran outside, 11 miles in 2 hours 10 minutes. Last long run for half marathon training #2.
Pre-run snack - PBJ sandwich.Let me tell you, it helps to fuel up just a tad before a long run. I definitely felt a whole lot better running today first 6 miles than the past few weeks. Now, tell me why haven't I been doing that religiously for all my long runs?
Running Partner.A good running partner helps keeping you accountable. They run the distance with you and make sure you don't just call it a day when you are so close to home and still have 3 miles left.
Online Running Partners/Friends/BloggersThey are watching you! Ha! They know when you usually post so you better run your long run and post and blog about it. It's like I know Anne Marie writes goals on Sundays, so, if she doesn't write her weekly goals on Sundays, I would be nervous!
Did I ever mention that I have a running twin?
She found me / or I found her? I don't know how we found each other. So, at first, she said she might be my running twin. And I thought, "Ok, Cool! Someone wants to be my twin and we kinda like the same thing/run the same pace." How flattering! Then, we found out we have the same birthday, just a different year. Then we also found out stuff like we both like the same Cyndi Lauper's song.
Now, Running Twin, what's your second favorite Cyndi Lauper's song? Mine's "Who Let In the Rain?" Check out her blog. I think she has a slight obsession with Disney and Vegas and also kinda addicted to entering half-marathon races!
If there is sports bra, what about sports panties?There are sports bra with support, sports bra with vents, sports bras with pockets. But what about sports panties? Is there such things?
Coughing takes up A LOT of energy.
Today's run was interspersed with lots of coughing bouts. Not funny. My belly was literally aching after all that coughing. So, I tried to contain my cough. It was a juggling act trying to contain my coughs, run, breath in and out.
I love my Garmin.
My boyfriend has given me some really nice thoughtful gifts over the years but the Garmin 305 he got me for my 29th birthday was really the bestest gift!
I love my boyfriend.
Good thing we don't fight with each other and trying to poke each other eye out. Life's too short to spend with the ones you love, so, why live in misery and be miserable and spiteful to the ones you love.
Guess where I went after my long run today and what I ate? McDonald's pancakes!!! And I have the picture to prove it! Just so you know, for 3 pancakes, I didn't even use up an entire thing of margarine and didn't use but only 1/3 of the syrup. I really just like pancakes and don't care for butter/syrup.
Usually, I dip my fork into the syrup and then poke my pancake and eat it. I just need a hint of sweetness.
Jan 2010 vs Jan 2011
