F is for Friday

I ran the same route on Wednesday as I did on Monday. Except I went a little bit longer. I discovered that I ran farther than I thought on Monday so that brings up my pace a little bit which is a good thing. I don't have the stats on hand right now but I think I averaged under 9 minute miles, which makes me happy considering the incline and wind that was in my grill the whole time. I basically felt like ass the entire run, but kept thinking that when I finished I'd feel totes better. Not so. I don't want to explain what followed, but it sucked. The only thing I can chalk it up to is the beer I had the night before or the carrots and coffee only diet I had leading up to the run. I think I need to pay more attention to what I eat and drink. There are junior high school habits that I still hold on to which include consuming entire boxes of cereal at a time. Its just not right. I'm 30 FGS. Back to the Wednesday run, I somehow hit the sweet spot, an HOUR of sunlight in Redmond. How lucky is that?

So, right now 2 runs for 11 miles M-F is good for me. Anything is better than nothing right? But the truth is that I need more more more - after I got done feeling sick on W, I actually felt higher than a kite for a long time. The endorphins lasted many hours and I miss that feeling. I think I owe it to myself to pony up.

Other thoughts:
*bikram yoga again
*new bike - the possibilities are endless (investigate wknd rides, possible commute alternatives)
*maybe start using my gym membership
*go to some local group runs
*start eating better you sloth!

ps - I'm going to Tim Gunn's book signing on Sunday - how f'ing cool is that?

You aren't 30, but you SHOULD eat more veggies/fruits.
