6:30 AM: 5.05-Mile Run @ 10:06 min/mi (1-mile warm-up; 3-miles of hill repeats; 1-mile cool-down) – COMPLETED
The rest of the week is going to be pretty H-O-T and H-U-M-I-D, and they’re calling for Friday as the muggiest and hottest of all, 110-degrees. Lovely. I have plans on Friday to meet my MIL for an early lunch in town. She has a massage scheduled down the street from my house so that will be nice. I’m thinking I’ll walk over — do I dare? Eh, why not. I’m sure she’ll drive me back to work after.
Anyway, we’re trying to make best of the hot weather, including Lili getting in on some FUN.
Oh, to be young again. I remember jumping back and forth into my sprinklers when I was 4-5 years old. Now, the only time I jump into them is during a race or long run when I need to cool down. HA.
I had plans to run outdoors this morning, but plans got changed — and so I rolled and unfolded my lovely treadmill. So easy and convenient. I had Lili’s bowl of cereal ready so she ate while I ran the first half and then played the second half until she said, “Mommy, I poo-poo!” I changed her during cool-down and then hopped back on.
Today, I decided that since I might be planning to do the Pizza 5k next week, I should really incorporate some hills in this workout — so I did inclines for three miles and ran them for at least half a mile. I had the incline at 6-7. It was good and I worked up a great sweat.
So yes, four things I’m loving this morning are hill repeats on the tread; being able to still see my feet with mismatched socks; a daughter who was mad that didn’t get to go running so hops on the tread after me and homemade banana bread with cookie butter.
I’m still busy at work, but I need to walk over to Trader Joe’s at lunch. Hoping today will go as fast as it did yesterday. I feel like it’s a Thursday — but it’s only Friday. Wahhhhh…
Also, we’re thinking of a short weekend getaway. We LOVE D.C., but it’s going to be extremely HOT there, so now we’re thinking Boston, Cape Cod or Cape May.
Where else can we go for a long weekend (4-days)? Are you going on any vacations/long weekends anywhere?
