Now to fit in a 7 miler. It helped to plan my day the night before. I wrote down everything I had to get done, then highlighted what would realistically get done (realistically I will not do my laundry today, let's be real ((or lazy.)) I google mapped a run to the polls. It turned out to be around 2 miles. I decided to take the long way and make it a four mile run there-[this is when I walked in and voted, all sweaty and delicious looking]-and three miles home.
There were no excuses to not get the run in! I'm sure I could have easily made up some, but when you look in advance, there is always a chunk of time (even if it's only 20 minutes) to get your legs moving.
Here is a sweaty, and somewhat creepy, picture of me at the polls. I'm sure someone questioned why I was taking a picture of myself in my running attire after I had voted. Oh well, I MADE THEM THINK.
A few weeks ago, I joined AREC, A Running Experience Club. I LOVE IT! It is so nice to go on long run with others. Last week I ran with a few others for 14 miles at an 8:24 pace. It seemed fairly easy (key word- fairly), and went by rather quickly when comparing it to a run I'd go on alone. Talking + running = my two favorite things- not including sushi, friends, chocolate, and cats. Not in that order.
Everyone go vote! Have a great Tuesday ;)
Time to make some lunch. I will stick to what I know:
