What’s On My Mind: 5 Things FRIDAY!
We’ve made it to Friday! Whoo!
Heading into the weekend I’ve got a few things on my mind…
1. I need to figure out how to run even splits.
|AM / PM||MILES||PACE||TEMP.||HUMIDITY|
Last night my goal was to run 13:30 even splits. I ended up with one 13:50 mile (oops too slow), one 12:43 mile (oops too fast) and one 13:36 mile (almost!).
I know proper pacing will only help me achieve a PR in my upcoming half marathon(s) so it’s something I have to nail down sooner rather than later.
I’m going to try really hard during my medium/long run this weekend. I’ll report back on Monday!
2. Cecil is the most curious cat.
He’s always all up in my business…. but I like it that way!
When I get home from a run all sweaty and gross he loves to come and sit in my lap.
I’ve decided either he loves me a lot and doesn’t care that I’m gross OR he thinks he’s going to get treats for dealing with me being gross…
Probably the latter. He’s very food motivated.
3. I need to get a new bib / medal holder.
I bought a bib holder after my first 5K last year and have been loading it up with every piece of race memorabilia ever. I really need to upgrade to a bigger holder!
I think I am going to buy this one to transfer my medals to:
4. My Western Red Cedar is growing!
My little red cedar from the Portland Marathon is now almost 6 inches tall!
This type of tree can grow up to 230 feet tall and 13 feet in diameter!
I guess I’m going to need to buy a really big house at some point in the future.
5. It’s Almost Halloween!
I met Adam TEN YEARS ago on Halloween! I can hardly believe it was that long ago!
I still need to figure out the perfect 10 year anniversary gift for next month.
I think if I could somehow get him a Dolphins win in Chicago this weekend it would be much appreciated. The end to last week’s game against the Pack was really disappointing!
Fingers crossed for Sunday!
Any tips for getting better at running even splits?
KICK ASS at your 10K this weekend Meg! I would say good luck getting that PR, but you don’t need luck!
