I think I had my best idea of 2013. My idea was to bring out my computer, set it on luggage (knowing my luck if I set it on the ledge of the deck bad things would happen) and watch Hulu while I ran. I also used the BLUEBUD earbuds so that I could listen to Biggest Loser as loud as I want without my neighbors getting bugged.
Today’s workout was hills because I have that little thing known as a TRAIL 1/2 marathon (Coyote Hills) coming up and my body currently only knows flat surfaces. I pulled up the course map and elevation chart and tried to simulate some of the hills on the course the best I could. I know treadmill hills do not equal trail hills but the treadmill is my only option a lot of the time.
9 miles @ 7:45 pace with 1,100 feet climbed. (I took a break 20 minutes into my run because Brooke woke up for a few minutes)
(I tried to email Billy the picture of the treadmill so that he could photoshop all of the dust off my treadmill but I guess he was busy in class or something. The second awesome thing about this picture is if you look real close you can see duct tape on our suitcase… the lock broke. Duct tape works wonderfully)
Biggest Loser was my view to the left and Brooke snoozing away was my view to the right.
She has this fun game that she likes to play called ‘kick off any and all socks that mom ever puts on my feet.’ She always wins.
Leftovers are the best things ever. In less than five minutes I had CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN CHILI from last night with some corn bread muffins. I really think this is one of my favorite recipes ever, which would make sense because it probably is the only recipe I ever really use.
Off to a running shoe store to help a friend find some awesome shoes!
