So here’s how my running life typically goes: I run 3 miles, and call it a day. Three miles was always my base mileage, at least for the past 1.5 years. I mentioned this in a post before and am too lazy to look for it to and link back to it, but 3 was always key for me. Nowadays, I’m stronger, more confident and more courageous. Nowadays, my new normal distance is 5 miles. I’d say this happened about 2-3 months ago and I’m really happy to have found that groove. It’s such a mental thing sometimes so it’s a total boost to my running ego.
Monday night was a great 5K with the bestie Mollie and Tuesday night was my regular 5 mile loop.
Wednesday night, Rebekah and I met up with our beloved girl Jacque and managed to get in both a kickbox cardio class as well as yoga class. While Jacque and I yogi-ed, Bek went and did her thing with the weights. #strong #tryingtogetlikekathy #vodkaandsoda
It was perhaps one of my most favorite yoga classes ever because we focused only on hips. HELLO! I am a runner and therefore NEED extra attention to my hips. It was like the instructor knew I needed it bad. WOO!
And last night, I went for another 5 miler with my lovely running bestie. I love running with her for many reasons (we PR’d at Hot Chocolate, she pushes me like crazy, she’s awesome, we like to match our outfits, she pushes me like crazy << worth mentioning twice, and she’s pretty awesome) but a big reason is that we get to run through the city like gangsters. Last night was no different and we got to catch the sunset.
Super peaceful scenery for a wonderful run.
And we booked it, too! Since when is sub 9 minute miles a thing for me? I guess that’s what happens when you’ve been running for about 3 years, you finally get it.
I’ll take that any day! 🙂
Happy Friday – hope everyone has a great day and weekend! I have tons planned for the weekend and I’m really looking forward to enjoying myself! 🙂 Today is a rest day and I have a ridiculously long LONG run planned for tomorrow. Fingers crossed… 🙂
When you run – what’s your happy pace/distance?
What are you doing this weekend?
Would you rather run while the sun rises or sets?
