A Cool Front Came Through
Monday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump
Everything felt the same. I wish I had more fun, positive updates on my glute, but nope.
Tuesday: 8 miles @ 8:24 pace on treadmill/ Pilates
I had to move some of my runs around this week and I REALLY didn’t want to miss pilates or have to rush in the morning, so I got my 8 miles in on the treadmill. It wasn’t too bad. We did some new moves in pilates today and I’m hoping my abs are sore tomorrow 🙂
Let’s back track to my long run… Sunday morning I woke up to this: (Except it was actually 4:41AM… we never change the time on this thing when the time comes around.)
I think a
cold cool front came through over the weekend. I usually wake up to 78/79 degrees instead of this brisk 75.9, haha. So dare I say it was cool out Sunday morning?! But Heather, there was 93% humidity, you say. Well yes, it was certainly moist out, but I’ll take anything I can get with this summer weather. I’m jealous of all you lovely people enjoying crisp, soon-to-be-fall air!
Thanks to our girls night Saturday night, I was carb and sodium loaded from pizza. It definitely helped fuel my run, that’s for sure! I got water three times and know that helped as well. I saw my sister on the trail and guess what? We were wearing the SAME sports bra. It wasn’t just any bra though, it was neon yellow with silver/grayish polka dots (picture in a future post). We passed each other a few times, so you know the people around us noticed the two girls wearing the obnoxiously bright bra. Love it AND Kristin. She looked smokin out there! Such a proud sister I am 🙂
Funny story… I knew that Hailey and her fiance, Cordes, would be out on the trail doing a 5k race trial. I thought I saw Cordes running and kept looking back, checking to see if it was him. Eventually I waved and headed in another direction. Welllll, as I was coming back I saw him again up ahead and was excited to say hey… except it wasn’t him! This guy was all excited, probably thinking I was checking him out earlier, haha. Opps!
Does anyone else’s bathroom look like this after a run? Wet, dripping clothes everywhere, haha.
All in all, my run went pretty good. I felt my glute almost the entire time, but it never hurt. It was certainly sore after. I iced it and took ibuprofen. I don’t like to make taking meds a regular thing, but after a long run, I think it will help. The rest of me isn’t sore at all. My legs feel good and fresh, which is great because my mileage has increased A LOT the past 2 weeks. I was at 38 miles a week ago and 52 miles last week. I’m hoping to get closer to 60 this week. We shall see.
Sunday night I accompanied Ashley to her husbands Championship hockey game. His team is the Hornets and their jerseys are green and white, so I sported my green and white PRO Compression socks with the lucky clover on them for good luck!
It was a great game and literally came down to the last second. Two of their players were in the penalty box, so they were out numbered for last 2 minutes. They were able to hold off the other team and WON!!! Champions! It was a great way to end the weekend 🙂
What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?
Have you ever mistaken someone for someone else during a run?
