Last Wednesday: 7.46 miles @ 8:41 average pace
Sunday: 4 muscle tearing miles downhill @ who knows what pace
Monday: 3.92 miles @ 8:48 avg pace
My quads are still torn to PIECES - I can't believe this. I don't know how these trail runners do it. Speaking of which...I met a friend who is into trail running and started a group in the area. I'm on their email list but these people are ridicks. They're going like minimum 15 miles at least twice a week and this includes massive elevation. Imagine your the toughest hike you've gone on...now imagine running it. What is wrong with these people? Of course I am a whore and want to be just like them. First I need to build up my mileage then start doing squats so I don't look like a fool. We'll see if it ever pans out but wouldn't it be cool to be a trail runner? Not to actually do it, but to say that you do it and walk around all muddy, sweaty and hot-looking? I do!
Back to reality, after last night's simple run I went to my gym for a yoga session. It was definitely lacking in the spiritual side, which is totally fine, but I was hoping it'd be more intense physically. It was okay, but I think I'd rather bust my ass in a bikram class and walk out feeling like a raisin.
I was hoping that writing this would make me inspired to go running, but all I want to do is make dinner and watch MSNBC. I suck.
At least I am 1/5 of the way to my weekly running goal and 1/2 of the way to my weekly yoga goal.
