Giving Myself the Gift of Speed (and Confidence as a Runner)
Merry Christmas! Last night I went for a speedy 3.5 mile run on the treadmill. I did 400s since I’m still afraid of Yasso 800s.
I think I will try to do the 800s next week. I’ve got to push outside of my comfort zone!
Up until this point I’ve been telling myself I don’t care about my pace. I think that is because I didn’t think I was capable of running any faster.
Now that I’m doing speedwork I am gaining confidence in my ability to make improvements to my pace and I really want to see what I can do.
I’ve always said I am comfortable being a back of the pack runner… and I am, for now. Maybe I don’t want to be a back of the packer forever though.
Just some running things I’m thinking about in my free time!
As much as I love having time off work, I miss the structure of my normal routine. This always happens to me when I’m on vacation!
I am enjoying sleeping in though … and so is Cecil. He always grabs his back paw when he sleeps and I always take a picture of it because I think it’s the cutest thing. I must have 400 pictures of him in this position.
And also this position:
One of my friends always calls C “the cat with the old man name.” I know Cecil is not your traditional cat name, but none of my cats have ever had names like Fluffy or Mittens.
My first cat was named Leo after Leonardo DiCaprio. We got him right before my 12th birthday. The next year we adopted my second cat, which I named Timberlake. Yes, I had already moved on : )
When Adam and I adopted Cecil he picked out the name. We wanted something different, and I have to say I’ve never met another cat named Cecil!
How did you come up with the name for your pet?
Hope you are enjoying a day with your family/friends! : )
