Hello Hip Huggers! How’s your week
I had a pretty cool weekend, myself!
Saturday, my hubby and I celebrated 14 years of holy matrimony.
I married a great guy! I’m a good picker
apparently not of weeds though.
We went to Campisi’s for pizza (eh, I’ve had better) then to
Half Price Books (the Uptown flagship, my favorite spot) for books & coffee.
Lastly, stopped at BJ’s Brewery for
car bs drinks. The night felt so live!
Maybe it was the awesome Super Moon, if you believe in cosmic stuff like
me that 🙂
Long Islands may not have been the best idea in hindsight,
considering I had a run planned in the morning with
a friend/fellow runner also training for her first half…
Meet Nikki, Hip Huggers! My new weekend running buddy!
Sunday: We planned 8 miles, but spent so much time
taking pictures talking
before heading out that we lost valuble time before things really began heating up.
We warmed up walking for about a mile and started good.
alcohol 91° heat got the best of me.
I couldn’t pick up speed thru the entire thing. I ran out of water at mile 4 and I was
dead DONE after that.
We conceeded at 7 miles; we were just running too slow/walking too much to get back home
in 1:30 as planned to get our families ready go to church.
Walked the last 1/2 mile to cooldown. But still, it was such a great run!
I’m so happy to have an experienced runner to help with my long runs on the weekends.
Training is already looking up! We’re beating the heat next week.. 6 miles @ sub 11 pace 🙂
My hubby is on vacation this week! So, it’s kinda nice having another
motivated running buddy for these super
sleepy Monday mornings.
Monday: Quick 5k & Sirsasana before heading out to run some important errands…
Read: restocking on post run
popcorn recovery 🙂
Tuesday: Another hot, slow run. But I was easy on myself.
Mid July runs after 7 am are gonna be slooow,
Must make 6:30 start time a priority!!
5 miles done!
I set out for just 3, but I think all the running I’ve tackled
over the last few days is catching up with me.
My legs were heavy and I felt like I crawled the entire run.
On a high note, I’m at 54 of 85 miles for July up there!
and speaking of long, its been a minute since
I had a good, long, heart opening yoga session at home.
Mind, Body, Heart Opened? Check.
Now, to catch up on Sunday’s The Leftovers, with popcorn because
we ate out last night and we have 0 leftovers.
I’m so Hooked, Hip Huggers! See Ya!!
Question: Hot Days? Treadmill Work or Slow Road Run?
