1. I didn't run on National Running Day. I really did mean to, I wore running clothes to work so that I would be ready to run after work, but then when I got off work little rainstorms kept rolling through and since they all had the potential to be thunderstorms and I have zero desire to get hit by lightening I stayed in the house and did some power yoga with Zuzka Light instead.
2. I got up and ran 6 miles this morning instead. It was a beautiful morning and I was feeling it so I did some speed work and loved every second of it, though by the end my legs were tired! Whew. I did two 800 intervals and 5x 400s. I forgot how painful 800s can be! It does feel so good to be back to doing speed work! So far I am only doing it once a week, but plan to add another session in soon if I keep feeling good.
3. Then to make the day even better I saddled up and helped an aunt and a cousin move some cow/calf pairs to another pasture.
your photos are always so picturesque and great quality. I think it doesn't matter how in shape you are, 800s are always painful!ReplyDelete
I didn't run yesterday either and don't feel the least bit guilty. And what gorgeous scenery you are surrounded with! Montana is definitely on my list of places to visit if I ever get west of the Mississippi!ReplyDelete
Why DO 800s hurt so much? I always wonder.... as I'm trying not to puke. Ha. Gorgeous pictures, as always!ReplyDelete
I too was going to say gorgeous pictures as always! Glad your running continues to feel good!ReplyDelete
So, so pretty! And you're moving really well, especially after a long layoff!ReplyDelete
Speed work is the worst. That's probably why I only do it if I can find someone to do it with me at the track.ReplyDelete
wow wow wow! i love where you live. and that you do things like "saddle up." i'm so jealous.ReplyDelete
awesome work with the speed! i agree, 800s hurt.
