Happy last day of winter friends! Even though I am not a fan of Southern Summers, I have to admit, I am craving some pool time! It feels Ohhhhhhh so good to say… it’s time for Five Things Friday! Thank you to Clare for the link up!
First, Moab, Here I Come!
I would be lying if I said the Canyonlands Half Marathon was what I was the most excited for. After months and months of knowing I would be traveling to my favorite place on earth to run my dream race, it finally hit me this weekend that the trip was here! I am so grateful to my mom for all but forcing me to take an extra (oh so precious) vacation day from work so that I actually get to spend a moment in Moab, and not just race, and catch a flight home.
Second, Links I Loved
I got a kick out of Hutch’s take on treadmill runners. As someone with mixed, complicated feelings/weekday reliance on the ole mill, I appreciated this post!
I eat ridiculous salads. I am absolutely convinced that no one in the world can make a better salad than me. That is probably because I tailor them precisely to my taste. Every day at work as I eat my lunch, without fail someone walks by, stops and gawks, “Wow! that looks really good.”
I love Annica’s post because I think I take for granted that salads are only lame if you make them lame, and most people have not been exposed to any other way. Annica provides an easy step by step approach to make a killer salad!
Third, Spongebob Won an Oscar?
Is it just my maturity level, or did anyone else think the Oscar set this year looked like it was covered in Bubble Boys?
I almost died on Tuesday. Why you may ask? Because I am melodramatic, that is why, and my favorite company in the whole wide world, Dylan’s Candy Bar released a jewelry line, Candy Girl. Let’s just say my future husband is in luck because while some gals prefer diamonds, I prefer sugar charms.
So what if the line is likely intended for the 7-10 age range, if you can’t tell by my Spongebob observation, I really am just an 8 year old who really, really, likes running and eating.
Finally, The Week In Fitness
Friday: 6 miles easy @ 8:19, arms
Thursday: 7 miles, 4 sets of 5 minutes @ 7:24, 5 minutes @ 8:19, abs
Tuesday: AM: 8 miles, easy @ 8:19, PM: Back
This was probably so easy because I kept the treadmill incline at zero, opps
Monday: 5 miles easy @ 8:19, abs
Sunday: 12 miles @ 8:00 average pace
It made me a bit nervous how difficult this pace felt. 8:00 was not hard to maintain, but it certainly wasn’t easy. Ahhhh well, One not so hot run, mean better are coming, right?
Saturday: 7 miles @ 8:01 average pace
