Last night I did my first ever fartlek run (5 miles)! You guys better watch out because I’m becoming a speedster. I’ll be placing first in my age group…. when I turn 95 : )
I’m actually not sure if I’ve ever sweat so much in my life. Be thankful that it was dark out because you know I like to post sweaty selfies to validate my runs and this one would have been really gross if you could see the sweat!
Also, I have to ask:
What’s worse… getting into the shower knowing beforehand that you chafed during your run, or finding out as you step under the water?
Last night I chafed for the first time in a long time and man, I really did NOT want to get into the shower. The anticipation of the pain is a killer! I would much rather be unpleasantly surprised.
In other more uplifting news, Friday after work Adam and I are heading to Miami Beach to see a live taping of @Midnight — a show on Comedy Central.
We don’t really watch it very often, but I’ve never been to a live taping of anything before so I’m pretty excited! Plus, Adam and I hardly ever go to Miami Beach because it’s super touristy, but sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in your own town.
Plus, Adam’s working from home on Friday, but really he’s going to come to work with me and work from my office! : ) I work close to Miami Beach so it makes sense for us to just head on over after work.
Hope you enjoy your Thursday… the weekend is in sight!
Have you ever placed in your age group or overall at a race? Did you get a trophy?
