Today I wanted to try to get in a 12 miler with 2x 5/4/3/2/1 fartleks @ marathon goal pace. After mile 1 I decided that though my legs were feeling better then they have been for the past few days, that this workout would be best left for another day. On deck for the remainder of the week is a progressive 20 miler, a 5k, and a total of 47 miles to go. The logical side of my brain that usually doesn't engage in these types of things said to try this workout next Monday, so next Monday it is.
Last week Vanessa over at The Gourmet Runner found out via her Garmin that she runs a whopping 87 mph, and doesn't even have to leave the living room to do so. Yesterday my Garmin was on the fritz a bit and told me that on mile 1 of my run I was clocking a 30 minute mile and mile 3 a 5:46 pace. So yesterday I found out that a 30 minute mile and a 5:46 mile feel the same for me effort wise, good to know...especially since my mile PR is like 5:58 that I ran in high school. Watch out Kara Goucher, by the info my Garmin tells me I'm getting ready to crush your Olympic dreams!
Got to love technology!
Everyone seems to be fighting this summer heat. Ashley, Jess who has coined her sweatyness SWASS, my fellow Chicago blog pals Charlyn and Kim, and plenty of other bloggers are feeling my pain. I thought I would share just what a nasty pig I am with a little before and after photo opt.
Dry as a bone
Looks like I jumped in the shower with my clothes on
But no folks thats all my nasty sweat toxins
Shooting my pups a smile
they love my nastiness
So nows your chance folks...
Have some lovely before and after sweaty pics that you'd like to share with the world so that we can all realize that we are not alone in our ickiness?
If so send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll include them in an upcoming post and link them back to you.
