…Great Legs on FIRE!!!
What the heck!? Who’s idea was it to do lunges yesterday, anyway?
Oh yeah. Mine.
My thighs, inner thighs, and hammies are screaming today! I hobbled out of bed this morning and if anyone (other than the Hubs and LB) would have seen me they would have thought I was like 96 years old! I often wonder how the heck I am able to actually run 100 yards, much less a mile, 10k, half marathon or MARATHON when I can barely walk!
Either way I got in my 7 mile run this AM. It was not pretty but I enjoyed the run. I felt tired but the soreness worked it’s way out during the run. Don’t you worry though, it returned within minutes of finishing.
7 miles/ 9:04 pace
G. Money has been acting up lately. I’m not sure what his deal is. Maybe he is mad at me? For the second time he has suddenly, unexpectedly and unexplainably shut off in the middle of a run. I don’t know what I will do if he doesn’t snap out of this attitude. How can I train for a marathon without him? How did runners do it pre-GPS/Garmin days? I know I can use an ap on my iPhone or a Nike plus, or a regular watch and train by time. GASP! Oh the HORROR! But I am spoiled. I am a creature of habit. I HATE change (when it comes to my Garmin and running anyway)! So hopefully he will pull it together and stop being such a jerk.
I am excited to add a couple more

Adorable wife (he he peer pressure is EVIL!)
Well, tomorrow is an easy 3 miler after my water aerobics class. I have a busy day to include driving the Hubs’ car to get a window replaced and tinted. You may wonder what the big deal is. Well it is an standard. A stick if you will. I don’t drive sticks. I can, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t. T-Town if full of hills and I don’t want to be the one to roll into someone or the jerk peeling out up a hill. So this is causing some anxiety…In the past 7 months while the Hubs was away I put maybe 3 miles on his car. I would start it up and roll it around the neighborhood every couple of months. I like my JEEP, my JEEP with my 26.2 and 13.1 and I DO 26.2 flair on it…not a boring ‘ole Audi. Ok, so it’s not boring, it’s just not my JEEP. It’s not ME. Oh well, it’s just one day…
****in talking with the Hubs just now he has admitted that his car is especially hard to drive because it is Turbo charged with increased compression. So whatever that means…all it means to me is that it is a hard stick to drive. So there.
Hope you all had great runs/workouts/lunges today!!!
