Getting Competitive with Adam
Guess what? We’re thisclose to the long weekend!
Last night I got in a nice little run at my favorite place. My old level of fitness is definitely coming back to me. I was able to hold 13 minute pace really really easily. I dipped down into the 11s several times without meaning to, but I reeled myself back in because easy runs are supposed to be really easy, right?!
It would be nice if something in the 12s was soon my easy pace… maybe it’s about time for that to happen, especially since I have eliminated walking breaks!
I had set A, B and C marathon goals in my mind a couple of months ago. As the weather warmed up and as I dealt with hip issues, I lost focus on those goals, but now I’m narrowing in on them again.
I don’t want to share them just yet … is it silly that I feel like I’ll jinx myself the moment I say them out loud / type them on the blog?!
Each of my recent runs has really lifted my spirits (and confidence) and I am starting to feel good about those exciting 26.2 goals again!
What is it that people say about marathons? Second time’s a charm? 🙂 I hope so!
This weekend I don’t have a whole lot on tap. Adam and I are just staying home, probably going to the movies, the beach, and picking out activity trackers.
Yep, two years after ditching our old Jawbone UPs we’re getting back into the competitive game of seeing who can get in more steps and more sleep each day :). I think I have a serious advantage as a runner – especially as my long runs get longer during marathon training.
I mean, I’m definitely going to win on long run days! #InItToWinIt
Actually, funny enough, we used to get the most competitive over who could fall asleep the fastest and who got the most deep sleep, haha!
Thank you to everyone who commented yesterday with your favorite trackers – it gave me a few options to research further! I appreciate it! I’m strongly considering the Fitbit Charge HR and Adam is strongly considering the Basis Peak!
Do you get competitive with your significant other?
Any big plans for the weekend?! Spill the beans!
