Run December - Day 2 - 1 mile. Headlamp and flashlight fail. In my neighborhood it is pitch black at night. It is not safe to run without light - even with a light I have fallen on my face. Tonight both my headlamp and flashlight failed so I ran 1 mile through the sand filled street and tried not to fall. I did not fall so I call this mile a success. The run streak continues.
Run December Day 1 - 3.38 + .60 cool down for 3.98 total. Beautiful run along the beach with Rae. Great beginning to Run December.Edit - Also started the plank challenge that @robbsrunning posted earlier. 21 sec straight arm plank.
Run November went out with a whimper. I ran short around the hood the last couple of days. After the tough trail run and day of cooking on Thanksgiving, I was wiped out. It felt good to regroup. For December, I am incorporating new rules for my run streak. No Garmin-less runs and post a pic for accountability. Here is to a strong finish to 2013!!!! There is so much to be thankful for but I will save that for another post.
Run November - Thanksgiving trails edition. Just short of 12 miles on Sullivan Ridge. Beautiful morning. Now off to prepare the stuffing and stuff the bird. Happy thanksgiving!!!
Last night, Day 26, I ran short around the neighborhood. This morning I went to spin w/ Reilly. This afternoon I ran 4 mi along the beach with Rae. This has been a crazy crazy work week but there is a lot to be thankful for - 4 day weekend starts now. Happy thanksgiving Eve everyone.
Devil trainer kicked my butt, per usual. 1 mile plus 1 hour mix of TRX and HIIT.
Short run around the neighborhood. I had planned to run longer but Thanksgiving prep took over. This is my second year hosting friends at the beach. If it does not rain, we will eat outside. Nothing like saying grace with ocean crashing in the background. I love beach living and count every blessing.
I had a 10 mi run scheduled this morning but hit off instead of snooze on the alarm so I missed my run partner. Thankfully I woke up in time to tell her I would not be there. My body felt like running fast instead of a long slow run I ran 3 mi fast- 1 mi fast, few seconds slow, repeat 3 times. It ended with Marine One flying directly over me. Apparently the President will be here on Monday so this must have been the practice run. (There are 5 helicopters that fly with the President with at least one Marine One decoy). I could not believe how low they flew over me. It gave me goosebumps. Happy Saturday!
Tonight I had the pleasure of running 4 mi with @tinkerbellrun. We ran a hilly route at a quick pace with one of her coworkers. It was glorious! I am looking forward to my planned 10 mi tomorrow morning. TGIF tumblrs!
I woke up at 5AM to light rain falling outside. I love running in the rain! I met my running partner at 6:10 for 5 mi. My legs are so sore that keeping up with her quick pace was a challenge. I feel so much better now that it is over.
