Is the theme of the week ..
Sneakers – Asics (brand loyal til I die) Gel-Kayano 17. In pink. Huge upgrade from my blue 1150s. Foot support-wise and aesthetically too!
Organic mixed greens, brocoli, carrots, red onion, goat cheese, garbanzos, and raisins with balsamic. SO GOOD. Triscuits on the side.
Hopefully this will help me keep building the guns and not be scared of the machines I don’t know how to use. Yet.
Speed Work Playlist:
Adele – “Rolling in the Deep”
Glee Cast – “Tik Tok”
Ke$ha – “Blow”
Lady Gaga “Born This Way”
All on repeat. Usually I run 6.5 and speed up to 6.7 on the choruses for the first mile and up those two speeds by .1 every mile if I’m running 3 or 4. Goes by so fast!
10 MILES!! Not all at once (thanks to a bridge being out), but all in one day. Janae says it’s cool and she’s my running idol, so I’ll take it.
And finally …
Sarah mentioned that her brother got one on sale for $185 (usually $300!) and my mom offered to split it with me. Yes, I think she may have been high on Ancestry.com and Gingerbread tea, but I’ll take it. AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! I could have run all 10 at once the other day, but whatever! I can’t wait to use it at the gym tomorrow, even if I’ll just be using the heart rate monitor part and not the sweet mapping and milage tracking/splits/whatever other amazing features She has. Yes, it’s a she. I’ve been calling her “Garmy” in my head since I like alliteration (my Jetta is now Jocelyn, BTW), but it’s not too original. Any suggestions?
I CANNOT WAIT to use it on my 9-miler with Emily on Saturday. EMILY WE CAN GO ANYWHERE.
I’m a freak.
Off to read the instruction manual and try to get the NEW hot sauce stain off of my NEW Juicy pants. Really I don’t know why I bought white pants. They weren’t even clean for an hour.
