As I was walking to the T to go home yesterday, I felt so giddy that I was going to run that I started to giggle, had a huge smile on my face and started to speed walk so I could get home faster! I felt like it was Christmas and I was getting the best present ever tonight-running! I know-I am super lame but I can’t help it!
Before the run I foam rolled every part of my legs that I could. We headed out and I had to rein the girls back in the beginning because they had their rocket boosters on (well compared to my legs). In the end we ended up doing 3 mi @ 9:04 pace in 27:13. I’m happy with that!
As soon as I got back from my run, I got my handy dandy ice pack and iced both hips and my butt. I LOVE icing. It makes my muscles feel so much better! No running for me tomorrow, but I hope to do some lifting. I was a good girl this morning and MADE my coffee to save some money. I am going to make this one of my new goals-to make my coffee or tea more often! I used to be really good but then got lazy.
On another note, I am getting SO excited for this weekend that I can’t stop thinking about how much fun, food and drink I am going to have with my college friends who are visiting! I may not be getting a lot of running in-but I will sure be getting a lot of laughs in.
Do you get unusually excited to exercise after you had to take a break for some reason?
I get excited about so many things and obviously exercising is one of those things! I often start sentences with “I’m so excited because…!”
Do you get to see your friends from college much?
I see a few every once in a while and we try to have a yearly get together. Two years ago we gathered in Vegas for a big celebration!
Do you make your own coffee/tea?
