Yup, seriously awesome. I feel like I kind of look like a running ninja. Except I think the point of ninjas is to sneak up on you and attack when you least expect it, right? So I guess I'd only be able to be a running ninja in a sea of hyper color t-shirts at an 80s themed party...hmmmmm.
So today was my 3mi day on my new run/walk interval training program, so I had to run 3mins/walk 2mins continuously until I reached 3 miles. SHOCKINGLY, even in the cold and wind, I felt pretty darn good! I was quite psyched about that, especially after my horrible run last weekend. It puts you in such a different mental space than after a bad run. So now I'm all jazzed! Whooooo-hooooo!! If I am going to run tomorrow though, which I am technically supposed to on my current 4 runs/week training plan (which might have to drop to 3 runs/week depending on my schedule), it will sadly have to be a treadmill run. Clearly I run so much better outside seeing as yesterday it was a time goal of 35 mins (I went for 40 though including warmup and cool down) and didn't even make 3 miles. Today I completed the 3mi distance goal in under 35mins! (Did I mention it was 20deg out?!?! - yeah, I'm bragging.) Am I starting to enjoy this?? No, can't be, this MUST be a fluke. (please don't be a fluke, please don't be a fluke!)
Anyway, the hubs has been snoring like a chainsaw since 8:30pm and I still need to put a small dent in The Help on my Kindle since I only get to "borrow" it for 2 weeks, and I was just told it's really long. Guess I should get a'readin!
