Well, it seems as if there are less than two weeks until the big ole marathon. Who is ready to read that recap?? I’m more than ready to live it so I can talk about it!
It’ll be marathon number two this year and it’ll be in the beautiful city of Seattle! I know everyone knows this already, but I have to keep discussing it for it to continue to feel real. I’m WAY excited.
Let’s catch up a bit, yes?
Friday I bought some new Lulu gear for my marathon, including a cute new headband that cost way, way, WAY too much. All for the name of Lulu, right? Plus, it’s pretty awesome.
I ran a quick 5 miles to test her out and she was wonderful. She has yet to attain a name, but I’m working on it. Suggestions are welcome.
Saturday the amazing boyfriend and I went to the Auburn/UGA football game. I have to say – it was WAY exciting to watch!
Sunday I awoke to set out for my long run but quit after 5 miles. I just wasn’t feeling it AT ALL. Good thing #fakeblondehairDONTCARE. Take that.
And yesterday I attempted to get in a speedy four miler, but the universe disagreed with that plan. I had a sluggish and unpleasant run.
It just didn’t ever feel great, and I know I’ve had wayyyy more amazing runs than bad runs – but combine my failure long run on Sunday and my less than amazing run yesterday, I’m missing my running MOJO! It doesn’t feel great to have some less than fun runs, HOWEVER, I’d rather it happen now than during the 26.2! I’m sucking it up like a real man, throwing some metaphorical dirt on it, and moving on.
So a few months ago, my co blogger and I were SUPER good at working out in the AM’s before work. Lately, we’ve had every excuse not to – mainly, it’s COLD. But this morning we actually tried to do something right and make it to the gym. SUCCESS. Cycling class got me to put in 25 miles this morning and that is something to be proud of.
I know most of you know how amazing it is, but dang, it’s AMAZING. It just kicks the day off on the total right foot, you know?
I think that catches you guys up with my exercise shenanigans.
Do you have a name suggestion for my new Lulu headband?
Did you have a good weekend? Do you watch college football?
Help me find my running mojo. This is not a question, mostly, a gigantic request from the depths of my deep dark soul.
