Guess who has a standing desk now! whoop whoop. Been standing for over 2 hours now. Apparently, I need to sit down occasionally so I don’t get cankles..?
I did not want to do this morning’s run. 4 x 1 mile repeats. That’s not even a big deal. Well I forced myself into it and it wasn’t that bad at all. I don’t think I am pushing myself hard enough speed wise. So I did 1.5 miles to warm up and then started in. Put the treadmill at 8.7 for the repeats. I think that is around 6:55 min/mile. I only recovered for a quarter mile between repeats and I kept the mill at 8.1 for the recovery. So I suppose that makes it a bit harder. My overall pace was 7:11 min/mile and I ran 6.5 miles total. Yea not much of a cool down, but I was in a hurry to watch RHOBH reunion. I did some push ups and dips while doing that.
Yesterday I ran 8 miles, over half of it outside. Monday I had run 10, 6 of those miles outside. I am planning my 13 miler on Saturday, weather permitting. Tomorrow will be a short fast day, 2 or 3. Friday will be an easy 6 or 7. Next week I will try to fit in a 14 miler and then maybe 14 or 15 again before a two week taper.
I feel icky right now. i think the excessive sugar is finally getting to me. I feel nauseous after eating too many mini candy bars last night and this morning. I keep thinking that my sweet tooth will settle down once I wean, but I have got to cut back because that’s not for another 6 months. ughhh.
