Good morning and happy Tuesday!
Yesterday was absolutely beautiful over here in Jersey. It was 71 degrees and just a.m.a.z.i.n.g! It was a run rest day for me, so I decided as soon as I got out of work to head home pick up my dog and take him down to the beach. I don’t think I could have asked for a better way to spend my rest day (well if the boy was there that would have made it even better 😉 )! Some pictures of the beach…
After the beach, I brought Brutus home (he was exhausted and took a nap in the backseat) and went food shopping for the week! I had to get produce since I literally had nothing in my fridge but almond milk, a spaghetti squash, eggs, hot sauce, and cheese (no joke, that’s all I had).
A little later in the evening Tim came over and we went to get froyo! I am bad at taking pictures (maybe something I should start doing more). He took a picture of his, but I don’t have that!
On a side note… how amazing is Michael Wadian? Two marathons in ONE DAY and both under THREE HOURS!!! Say what?????? I actually did the completely running obsessed stalker thing and tracked both his races! I know, crazy, but I was totally rooting for him and couldn’t wait for all the social media updates!
Today is kind of a “workout”. My hamstring was pretty roughed up after my race (I am chalking it up to the minimalist running shoes I only wore twice to break in prior to the race). Last week I just did easy runs. This week my coach suggested the same, but I am racing Saturday (I know, crazy again). So today will be a 15 minute warm-up, 8x1minute hard, 1 minute medium, 15 minutes cool-down. I just want to get some speed in there before the race!
How was your day yesterday? Get to do anything fun?
Do you stalk any of your favorite runners at races?
