It was bound to happen. My runs have been too enjoyable lately so I needed a kick in the butt as a reminder that it isn’t always easy and I am not going to just soar through training like it’s no big deal. It took a whopping .25 miles today for my legs to feel like total crap. I finished the three miles thanks in part to The Price Is Right. I was painfully aware of the fact that I was running and each step felt like I was moving a 50lb lead weight. I started the run at 6.5 on the death trap and finished out at 7.0 because I just wanted it to end. Overall it ended up being a 9 min pace, woof. I finished off with a boat load of stretching, sit ups on the ball, and some push ups. I sort of want to make it to a 7:40pm yoga class today before my 9:30pm soccer game but we’ll see what my laundry situation is and how I am feeling, a triple work out session (although it is varied in activity) may not be the best idea.
Let’s talk about something good, like my lunch! I haven’t shared the recipe for the pulled pork yet but I have shared the BBQ sauce recipe and this lunch was delicioussss! I promise to post the pulled pork recipe tonight or first thing tomorrow. I recommend you go out and buy a 2.5lb pork loin roast in preparation.
I had a little time to kill so I printed out some pictures to add to my walls at work. This all started because the boy sent me some pictures he took of Sasha and my heart melted. Then I realized I couldn’t just have a picture of Sasha with out a picture of Jax… six pictures later and I am content for now! If you are wondering the answer is yes – that large sheet of paper is indeed my training schedule, courtesy of RunnersWorld.com smart coach.
Doesn’t she sort of look like a bunny rabbit / a kangaroo or something. I love how GIANT her ears are. While I of course can’t wait for her head to get huge too I sort of love how disproportionate her ears are right now.
Q: Do you have any homemade BBQ recipes?? I am hoping to make a second batch this week so that I can have the pork plain, with the sweet and spicy one I already have an hopefully a new mustard based one. Share your link if you have one!
Q: How do you get through your crappy work outs?
