Yet another great run this morning. Felt good to get up bright and early and knock it out. Temps weren’t too warm and it was very breezy out. I want this weather to stay around just a little bit longer. Triple digit temps stay far far away and let me keep on lovin’ my runs.
Kept it at an easy 9 something minute per mile pace. Finished 6 miles in just under an hour. Bam.
Runners – do you ever over-analyze and compare your pace and mileage to others? I think we are all guilty of this. I know I sure do. I try to use other people’s performances as more motivation for me to continue to improve, not so much as a comparison.
I believe that everyone is on his or her own running JOURNEY, and it is something you should always respect, the fact that we are all on our own journeys. Yours will look a little different from mine. And that’s okay. I have always had this belief and I think it has been what has kept me going for so long in this game of running.
It’s only getting better.
After my run I had tons of WATER, boiled some eggs and had some fresh blueberries at work. I bought up a bunch of yummy fruits last night. I love that berries are now in season!
I am also loving these cinnamon roasted almonds. They are my new go-to snack when I need something sweet.
Tonight I will do a little strength workout at the gym. I have been missing me some weights! I may throw in this little set from Jen’s workout! Go check that girl’s blog out, she posts lots of great moves you can incorporate into your routine!
That’s all for now.
What do you love the most about running? What are some of your favorite summer fruits? Favorite strength training move?
