Monday: Rest day... my favorite way to spend a Monday. After the 10k, I felt like I deserved it.
Tuesday: I ended up doing a 3 mile pace run as a warm up before my upper body weight session. I'm not really sure how that happened, but I knew I needed to get in 3 miles & just wanted to get it over with. So I set the treadmill for super fast & smoked it out: 3 miles @ 10:01 pace.
Wednesday: Another 4 miles. And it almost didn't happen. I didn't get it in before work & I was dragging by the end of the day. When I walked in the door after work, I immediately started stripping off my clothes. I was desperate to make sure I got on the treadmill to log my miles. And ended up with 4 miles @ 10:17 pace. I kept getting faster & faster, though I didn't intend to do so.
So what does one do to celebrate an awesome run? Go to the mall for some light browsing. We'd never been in this store before, so we didn't know what to expect. Then we saw these "gorgeous" items:
|Anyone need an Elvis Cow Table?|
|Found: World's Oldest Treadmill|
|Pizza Proscuitto Crudo e Mozzarella di Bufalo. And fries.|
|Fizzy water in a pretty bottle. Mr. X's beer.|
There you have it. Another week in training for the record books. Not really, though. My weekly mileage was reduced thanks to my stupid hamstring, but I'm still satisfied with the week. And since it's a new week, I get to wash off my indulgent meal & be on track with my meal plan. Looking forward!
