The good news continues! I'm about a month and a half out of the BOOT:
I did 50 miles last week and looking at the same for this week. I run 7 days a week. Every morning I do 6, 8 or 10 milers. Pretty much all sub 7:20 pace. I feel like I already said this...anyways...no pain, my muscles are doing much better.
I had my first 8 mile sub 7 run today. Huge milestone. I did four with my running partner Dan. He wigged out a bit because he ran with compression for the first time. So the first 4 miles were 7:02 pace including a warm up mile. I was confused. He was talking about Halloween stuff like we were sitting at Starbucks. But my ego said, hang tight, it'll be over soon. Then Dan left and I reset my watch to do 4 more but easy...that didn't happen. 4 @ 6:51 pace. It's good to know my legs will go but I in no way enjoyed any of the footsteps from mile 7.5-8. In fact the only reason I didn't stop at 7.91 when I was gagging on my tongue was because I post my garmin's on FB. Ha.
I made a hard decision about swimming too. I'm not doing it anymore. I've been swimming for years. Minimum of 1-2 times a week. I love it but the reason is financial. My HAIR IS EXPENSIVE! I can't afford to maintain good hair with that swim schedule. I was looking ratty, dry, brittle, dull and frizzed out. Two words came to mind F**k THIS! So sad. It hurts, but my hair looks good. lol.
I also haven't been on the bike. That blows as well, but my body is adjusting to the run again and I am tired! I did a 90 degree head bob while getting my hair blown out this week. Embarrassing and it hurts. lol. So until I can hang with my new mileage I am sticking to running only.
So that's about it....WAIT, no, that's right...AB UPDATE!!! BROWNCHICKENBROWNCOW! (lmao) I've been doing a half ass version of ab ripper every day after my run. I seem to get distracted and bullshit my way through most of it. But some is better than none! Here ya go!
|I dunno about you but I see some fledgling abs poking out!|
ok, I'm out peeps..party on, run well and have a good one. PS should you become bored around 8pm eastern tonight watch the HURRICANES do some sick shit! go _!!!
