I received this email from my running coach last night:
“I think we can work on pushing the pace a little.” I was tempted to email my coach back and tell her a short story about this time Adam and I needed to get from Point A to Point B (our car) in a bad rain storm.
Adam: “Hurry baby! We’re getting soaked!”
Me: “I don’t hurry.”
I love running, I love it so much. I don’t know if I will love running at a speed that is out of my comfort zone. For me, up until this point, it’s been all about pushing to new distances and focusing on crossing the finish line.
I guess this is just a new running challenge and I think I will end up liking it in the end. Plus, I may have specifically requested to bring my pace down for my second half in Feb.
I am excited about building mileage again! While I was preparing for the Fort Lauderdale half there is no doubt that every run in the double digits was a struggle. I really hope with a proper fueling strategy this time around I can get through miles 10-13 with grace instead of a grimace!
Sort of off topic (okay way off topic) but I finally decorated my office at work. And by “decorated” I mean I pulled out the mini tree I bought last year and placed it on my desk.
I got the tree, skirt and ornaments last year at Target for less than $20 total! The most expensive part was the skirt which was $8 but I think it was worth the investment.
We don’t put up a tree at home because Cecil loves to climb up everything he possibly can. I just know he would love to climb a Christmas tree and knock down all the ornaments. I want him to be happy but not that happy.
Plus we live on the 3rd floor of our condo complex so that presents difficulties. Maybe we’ll give it a try next year when we’re in a house (fingers crossed).
How often do you do speed work? What kind?
– I’ve heard interesting things about those Yasso 800s!
Do you decorate for the holidays?
