Half Marathon Plans & Fantasy Football Fun
I got up early to go for a morning run again on Saturday! WHO AM I?? Waking up before absolutely necessary goes against the grain for me. However, I do like not having to worry about fitting in a run later in the day. There’s only so many times you can say to your sig. other, “would you mind if we don’t do anything at all on Saturday night? Because I really need to run a ton of miles and then sit on the couch without moving for many hours.”
I was a little bit concerned about how my quad would hold up for a long run, so I did all thirteen of my planned miles on the treadmill. Basically, this was my view for a long time:
After the Portland Marathon I am registered for a couple of half marathons. I have some loose goals in mind for them that I want to solidify soon-ish. I used the opportunity of running 13 miles this weekend to go a bit faster than I normally would on a long run to gauge what might be realistic. It was a good test! More on that soon!
So, one of the downsides of Cecil LOVING his cat tree is that he used to sit on my lap when I was at my desk and now he just lays in the tree.
And tries to steal my Garmin so that he can record the splits from his 3AM sprints around the house. #HesFast
Aside from running, lifting, eating and watching sports not a whole lot went on this weekend. Just the way I like it!
I drafted my fantasy football team on Saturday after my long run. My team name this year is Grimes & Punishment (Brent Grimes is one of my favorite players on the Dolphins)! I wanted to use Turn Down for Watt (a play on JJ Watt’s name) but apparently everyone is using that this year!
I planned out my draft board on Friday night… naturally nothing ever goes as planned!
I ended picking 11th out of 14 which stinks! All of the good running backs were gone by the time my first pick came around so I went with a QB instead. I could have gotten Peyton but I went with Aaron instead because… <3. Plus, I knew I would be able to pick up Jordy Nelson in the second round easy and I think the two of them could combine to give me big points each week.
I’m definitely concerned about my running back situation though! If you have any suggestions for sleepers that I should look to pick up on the waiver wire left me know!
How did your long run go this weekend? When was the last time you did a long one on the treadmill?
If you play FF who do you have at running back?? Did you draft any rookies?
