Day in the Life + Endorphins at 7:45pm!
My new camera came in last week and I took it out for a spin around town yesterday!
BTW, my YouTube channel hit over 3,000 views yesterday! Am I a celebrity now? Don’t worry I won’t let the fame go to my head. I’ll always just be Jenny From the Block. ?
Cecil, on the other hand, has totally gotten out of control. He’s an ego maniac demanding that we bring him treats while he sits atop the fridge surveying his land.
During my lunch break yesterday the new episode of Mindy happened:
I’m so happy it’s back, now all we need is a new Adam Pally episode!
When I got home from work Adam was already in his PJs. I could tell he had a stressful day so I said, “why don’t you come to the gym with me?” He wanted to take pre-workout first so we had to wait 30 mins before heading over to give it time to kick in.
We both left the gym sweaty, satisfied and full of energy and endorphins! I really like running after work because it helps me to transition into a calmer, more relaxed “at home” version of myself. It’s not that my job stresses me out so much that I need it… but the commute does leave me a little high strung. I’m totally used to it, but that doesn’t make it any less annoying!
After the dub sevs I ran over the weekend my legs did feel a bit tired on Monday and I was grateful I had switched my rest day to Mondays. My hamstrings were also a bit tight but a good stretching session yesterday seemed to do the trick because last night’s run felt totally effortless and there was no sign of tightness!
This may sound totally bizarre, but right now I am really enjoying being a runner. I feel very little pressure since I’m not currently in the middle of a training plan, but I’m still doing things that I know will help me improve. It just feels good. ? I love writing in my training log and seeing the miles build up!
Recently two people have told me that they’re in a running rut. My advice is to read through your training log from a period in time when you were just totally crushing it. That always motivates me like nothing else!
Actually, whether you’re in a rut or not, go read through an old training log today! It’s such a great exercise in being grateful for how far you’ve come and getting inspired for what you can still achieve!
Have a great Wednesday!
