I love sleeping in… have I ever mentioned that?
While I am not a HUGE fan of working late on Thursdays, there is something to refreshing about sleeping in until 730 on a weekday. I wake up on my own normally, and get to allow myself to slowly wake up before my alarm goes off…my favorite.
Workout of The Morning: 3.5 miles speed work
Here’s how it looked this morning:
- 1 mile warm up (about 940 pace)
- 1 speed mile (between 8.0 and 7.1, about 8 min/mile page)
- 1.5 mile switching back and forth between 800’s and 400’s at speed, and 400’s at recovery.
- Finished 3.5 miles in a little under 31 minutes
That equals 27.25 miles for the Pile On The Miles challenge.
Yes…that is still my D tag from the St Louis RnR on my shoe. Shoot, if it were up to be I’d still be wearing my medal…so it is no surprise that the D tag is still there. I need a new pair of shoes soon, so I imagine that little tag will be on there until these shoes are retired. And I am OK with that.
After my run I did day 7 of Piper’s 30 day thigh challenge which included:
- 25 lateral lunges with weights
- 50 scissors
- 18 fire hydrants
- 20 pile squat pulses with weights
Ok, this challenge is starting to get real as well. If you are doing this with us…don’t look ahead. Except to tomorrow, which is a rest day (which works perfectly because it’s a rest day on my schedule as well).
And now, I need to finish up getting ready and head to work. I really do love these slow mornings 🙂
Question of the Morning: Do you keep your d tags on your shoes from races? Or do you hold onto anything else from events as momentos?
