…makes you wish you were dead?
Well, I may be exaggerating a tiny bit. But I was thinking that today. I know that if I am going to PR in the Seattle Half I need some serious hill training. Today’s running schedule called for 3 miles. Too easy. I decided to do it on the track and each time I came to the straight away on the stadium side I did the stairs, up/down, up/down, up/down, up/down…run a lap, stairs X12. Ugh! Talk about burning thighs and bootylicious booty! But, since I have you all here I was wondering: do stairs translate to hills? Not sure but I would think so.
When that was all said and done the total was 3.72. I thought it must have been more but my Garmin was having a hard time understanding just why I was running up and down the stairs like that. But all together with warm up, 3 miles + stairs, cool down, and an easy two mile jog/walk with my girl Jess (holla!) I totaled 6.22 miles on my 3 mile day. Not too shabby! We will see how those legs feel tomorrow!
Tomorrow is stretch and strength then Wed 10 miles. I guess I am all over the place with this plan already and it hasn’t even officially started yet! Arg!
Today I am grateful:
-for my friends who are keeping on track!
-that Jessica watched my little running buddy for a few hours this evening!
-that I got a sweet sidewalk chalk art surprise when I got home!
-that I am back on track, for REAL.
-that I got TAGGED my Tall Mom on the Run and will be putting my HEART out there for the world to see!!! Check back tomorrow!
