The sun was beating down on me and I was incredibly sweaty. But the vitamin D plus the endorphins were really great!
I also decided to get crazy and switch shoulder day from Friday to Monday because I go to the gym on Friday and they have machines I don't have at my house. But I can do all of the same exercises for the shoulders at home as I can at the gym.
Tuesday, of course, my run was inside because I don't run by myself in the dark. I get scared running alone in the daylight, I can't even imagine the heart attacks I would have in the dark.
For some reason, running at my normal pace feels really, really fast at 5 in the morning. I stayed the same and did chest/tricep. And then my long day began. Luckily, I came home to this.
I have a thing for quinoa these days. I'm in love.
Today, the sun was shining again and there was a lovely breeze. I had to stop by the bank on my way home from work, so I decided to run laps around the park that's really close to my bank. It was a really good decision.
It was an accidental progression run and I actually had negative splits. It's a goal of mine to be able to pick up the pace on tired legs.
No run is complete without a sweaty selfie. And no run can be bad when you get views like this.
I put on a HIIT video when I got home and then did 10 minutes of abs before I called it quits.
That big box behind me is actually boyfriend's birthday present. His birthday is a week from tomorrow and I have nowhere to put the massive box. So it lives in my home gym.
I made dinner tonight. The salad was made almost entirely of veggies from our garden.
I have found the best part of running outside, besides having something to look at other than a wall or a TV and breathing fresh air, is the sock tan.
You can't really see it in this photo, but it's definitely there. And I love it. I feel as though I'm a real runner now!
