Late night speedwork with Milo. Ran a bunch of 1/8 mile sprints at 7:30 pace until my legs could barely function.
Just a little over a month till the Lake Placid Marathon!
Seventy degrees and sunny. Perfect weather to bike to work.
Today is speed work. And I plan on running extra hard to get rid of the 4 lbs I put on over the weekend. I was an eating machine.
6 mile run around Lake Scranton, PA! Because marathon training is happening no matter where I am.
1. Espresso catering for somebody I met serving coffee at the bike shop. It was a small outdoor wedding at Lake Shenandoah, not 10 minutes from where I live. Awesome place. And I didn’t even know it existed.
2. 5.5 mile run with Milo this afternoon through the JMU campus and arboretum trails.
3. Giant slice of sausage pizza and beer.
It was a good day.
Look who came to the office with me!
Milo and I are hitting the trails with the local trail running group after work. So I picked him up and brought him with me after lunch.
The “after” shot, as requested Carolyn!
Fueling up with some of this homemade pasta before I jump on the bike trainer tonight!
You know how sometimes you feel like you’re going to shit yours pants while you’re out on a run? Well… That totally happened to me this morning.It all started at around mile one, and the situation quickly deteriorated. Thankfully my running route passes next to the field hockey area which happens to have public restrooms.
I was relieved in more ways than one.
Five cold, late night miles in 19 degree temps with a wind chill of 10.
I regretted it for the first mile or so and almost turned back. But once I started to warm up all was well. I was also slightly concerned it would be a bit too cold for Milo but he didn’t mind it one bit. That dude loves to run with me no matter what.
What an awesome afternoon for a 6 mile run!
