Never have I been more aware of the sad fact that I do.
Bugs, bugs EVERYWHERE! I almost ate 4 of them on last night’s run before I started to consciously close my mouth (which was hard because it was so hot!). Ugh. And this isn’t even counting my run last Sunday when a bug flew in my eye and hung out for about 2 miles in my eyelashes.
These bugs have no respect of my personal space. Rude.
Anyway, I shall be making a serious effort to work on closing my mouth while outdoors this summer. Being a vegetarian (ish) and all, eating bugs would be a disaster for my system. <<< Uh, really? No, I think we’d all be ok.
The Senator seems to have a problem with my whining. I haven’t checked in here for a few days, so I’ll just recap some runs this week and call it a FRIDAY! I had some fabulous runs this week and am really happy about how my body feels!
Tuesday I had a great time because the weather was perfect.
Wednesday I ran with my boyfriend and it wasn’t my best, but it still didn’t feel bad.
Because of the beautiful Blonde Hair Blue Eyed Runner’s Pro Compression giveaway, I decided to dust off my old compression socks for the run. They aren’t the best and I want to give the Pro Compression a fair chance before I dismiss the idea of compression altogether.
I still ended up with a decent average pace, 9:05 for four miles.
And to last night. Sheesh. The BUGS. I almost just gave up because there were SO many flying in my face and mouth. Oh yes, and Atlanta weather is finally starting to heat up and it was HOT last night. I still got in 4 miles but it was at a much slower pace, about 9:17 (at least all negative splits though!) Can you guess the theme of my run last night?
Apparently I wrote it out for you. ALL BLUE E’RRRRRYYYYTHHHANNNNGG! I’m hyper, forgive me. The Senator loves running with me (I think) but he was TUCKERED last night. Like, pretty bad. Poor creature. If you follow me on Instagram (DO IT!) then you already saw a cute picture of him but here’s one more just in case:
Happy Freaking Friday! Woo!
Oh yes, much like Leslee over at Her Happy Balance, I too am running a race this weekend! It’s called the Electric Run because it’s at night and it’s all lit up and glow-y and stuff! Full report will follow because I have high expectations for the price tag that came along with this baby.
Do you run with your mouth open or closed? EXPLAIN!
What’s your favorite go to easy dinner?
Anything wonderful happening this weekend with you?
