It's already the middle of the week! I guess it helps that I am so busy every day. Mondays and Wednesdays I have the afternoons free, so I've been taking the opportunity to run outside to keep up my awesome sock tan and also because I know once winter decides to hit, I won't see outside very much.
That Garmin picture was from Monday. Don't ask how I went so fast, because I honestly have no idea. I didn't look at my wrist the entire time and just went with the feel. I also had to stop to tie my shoe THREE times, despite the tight double knot I did each time. Noob mistake. I also tried to be artsy and get a picture of myself relaxing after the run. I got this.
While I lifted, Boyfriend was amazing and fixed my car. The check engine light had come on Sunday morning and I got really nervous. He switched cars with me on Monday and took it to get checked out. Luckily it was just a bad spark plug and he was able to replace them all, thanks to YouTube.
Tuesday was the same as the last 6 Tuesdays. In other words, the longest days of my life.
The only other photo I took all day was on my drive home 14 hours later. It really is a lovely drive home.
Today was another run outside day. I came home and just wanted to sit down and sleep for the entire afternoon, but I strapped on the shoes and the Garmin and headed out. I was so tired and wanted to cry the entire time. Then I saw this.
No WONDER I was tired. I decided my body needed a break and only did abs instead of a HIIT video. Then I did some more cardio at Kohls where I spent way too much money. I also played with Milo, who is finally home from his dad's house.
I've been focusing a lot on negative splits and FINALLY I got perfect negative splits on my run outside.
I'm pretty proud of how far I've come since January when I was in the hate part of my love/hate relationship with running and had only run about 3 miles a week for months.
Tomorrow I get to lead my very first IEP, which is making me so nervous I could vomit. But I won't, since that would out a damper on the evening.
