Helloooooo FALL! These 70 degree days feel AWESOME. I really hope it keeps up. We slept with the windows open last night. The A/C needed a break for sure.
Only downside is BOTH doggies are sleeping in bed with me now. This is a new development since last winter Merry was still sleeping in her crate. Basically, I won’t need blankets at all this winter. Dogs are like little space heaters. Warm little fuzzy bodies.
Last weekend my tummy was unhappy. I made a note of what I had eaten, and I noticed that I had abandoned my 50/50 vegan/omnivore diet. I wasn’t eating vegan hardly at all. So for the last three days, I have eaten almost completely vegan, with the exception of eggs for breakfast. And I feel so much better. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to make the full step into veganism, but I definitely like the way I feel the more plants I eat and the less meat I eat.
I did something during this morning’s tempo run that I had never done before. I hit the 7 during a tempo run. 4 miles at tempo. I did the first two miles at 6.7 (8:57 pace). I did the third mile at 6.8 (8:49 pace). And I did the fourth mile at 6.9 (8:42 pace) with the last 400 at 7.0 (8:34 pace). 7.0!! Woah. That definitely swept away some of the doubt from yesterday’s post.
I’ve got to stretch and foam roll tonight. My shins are cranky. I did the magic shin splint stretch this morning, but I can tell I need a little extra prehab to avoid disaster. Prehab…is that a real word? Or did some physical therapist invent it?
Anyway! Stay neon! Stay random!
