5 mi of struggle. 8 min miles at 6AM after 2 hours of spin last night. This was a tough one!
It’s chilly! Headed out for 8-10 easy miles.
The bad - My quest to run every day in December ended a couple of days ago. It is what it is. I worked 12+ hour days the past three days and had no energy left to run. The good - This has been the most stress filled time in my professional career. Most days I put in a strong workout. I have not let the stress get the best of me. The beautiful thing about life is that you get to chose your reaction. I chose to be positive and hopeful.
I am headed out for a couple miles in the rain. Tomorrow, long run.
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.
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.
Dolphins! Redondo Beach looking north to Malibu in the distance. Gorgeous morning. 30 mile ride.
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.
