I don’t know about you but after a run of more than oh 3 miles it takes my body a little time to cool off. So trying to squeeze a 6 mile run in over lunch means that I am speed showering and hustling back upstairs. I couldn’t stop sweating to save my life. I came back upstairs and my offices mates quickly commented “well you look flushed!”, I wish I had gotten a picture but the locker room was a bit busy and I don’t think people would have appreciated it. All in all the run went good. My legs and butt are incredibly sore from yesterdays work out and I was battling some severe leg fatigue on mile 3. I powered through it and ended up with splits of 9:05, 8:42, 8:38, 8:29, 8:36, 8:59. I am really looking forward to a slow and easy 2 miles tomorrow to shake my legs out, and TONS of stretching. It looks like it is going to be 70 degrees here in DC on Sunday, which is beautiful weather for a early morning 10 miler. I’m not gunna lie, the mileage honestly terrifies me – I get so lonely and bored running for that long, we shall see what happens!

Thank you so much to every one on your hot sauce and book suggestions from this mornings post! I have been hooked on reading lately and don’t want it to stop. I decided prior to the holidays to not drink at all during the month of January and I have stuck to it. I see a lot of reading in my future this weekend, which is a good thing because I have three books to plow through and get started on some of your suggestions!
