Hello Hip Huggers!
I haven’t checked in since our Tempo Run
fail Tuesday so
here’s the Triple
Decker Scoop.. so you don’t ask for mine..
Wednesday: I had a 6 mile run.
That is a long-ish run for the distance
I am focused on right now, so to conquer that run with
under 11 minute miles was fantastic!
I also spent a little time inverted to flush out my adrenals,
get some blood flow to the brain and eyes
and just to be cool.
Also, this amazing thing happened:
My Instagram was reinstated!
*sigh* it really is.
I had a lot to catch my followers up on
Anniversaries, medals, yoga, etc.
So, I snacked on some corned beef and provolone while I
was filling my faithfuls in on the last 9 weeks of life! Lchf, my pals:)
Thursday was a very errand heavy day.
I didn’t know if it would turn out to be a rest day or a really-short-run day.
After paying some bills, I headed out to thrift!
I found a rice cooker
(brand spankin’ new) for $4.
My kids have a new job and
I am officially retired from cooking
Also found a fancy, schmancy Scentsy for 2 bucks..
smellin fresh and frugal!
Way later, after food and the world cooled down a bit,
I managed to get in a pretty Quick 3.1 Miles, for the likes of myself!
I was very motivated, thanks to a friend’s advice!
I started today’s’ ‘check in’ blog early this morning.
As I was typing, I could hear dog tags jingling – my dogs got out.
Which they’ve managed to do a lot of lately.
New behavior, and its driving me crazy!
They are both fixed, so I have no idea why they are
determined to dig holes and escape! Either way,
Break the rules, you get grounded!
So, that was a mini workout reeling them back in.
I was ready to
go back to bed run after that…
Friday: 6.2 Miles Done + Sirsasana Love
Took some great advice from a runner friend and
really challenged myself.
My mantra was ‘stay under 11 min/miles’
When I got to about 4.5, it was ‘stay under 10.
I have running easy down to a science,
its time to kick things in high
Still must remain injury free! Much rather slow, than No!
Long run planned for Sunday at dawn… I’m keeping the mileage a secret!
We’ll see if its something to talk about…
So, there’s the triple scoop! Catch y’all later!
Question: What is your ‘mantra’ when pushing through a run?
