I don’t even want to try to remember what time I woke up this morning to fit my run in. I only had time to run before teaching my spin class and it takes 20 minutes to drive to my gym so that means my alarm clock went off in the 4 o’clock hour. Good thing I went to bed at 9 last night. Seriously.
This was my first treadmill run in 4 months….. I don’t know if I will ever be a treadmill runner again…. my brain almost exploded. Maybe I just have a thing for my own personal treadmill or something?!?
Today my run was focused on form! I have a lot of things to work on so the way that my coach split up different areas to focus on each 1/4th of a mile made it a lot more doable. I kept the workout up on my iPad so that I could remember what was next (my brain doesn’t function this early in the morning).
I tend to run with chicken arms (that is what my coach called them:) so it was tough to try to teach myself to lead back with the elbows and also I really need to work on my posture! THIS VIDEO shows you something to do during a run when you feel like your posture is is breaking down. Reach up over your head because it pulls everything into place and brings your hips forward again. It totally works!
I had a meeting this morning to go to and luckily there were other kids and toys to keep Brooke happy the whole time. Yes, I do daily coordinate our outfits so that we are wearing the same colors.
Then it was off to errands and we picked up the three necessities in life… cliff bars, watermelon and soup (because doesn’t everyone love eating soup when it is 80 degrees out?).
While we were out hunger struck and there was nothing I could do about it but pull over the car and search for food. I still have at least 5 Subway gift cards left. Expect many more sandwiches to appear.
One of my all-time favorite shows is back!!! Since Billy is too cool for me and goes to school at night to study a few nights a week I will be DVRing these episodes and saving them for those nights when he is gone. Let’s be honest, I will probably get a Chipotle burrito bowl to eat while I watch them.
What part of your running form do you need to work on the most?
Any Clif bar fans? What flavor? Do you prefer different kinds of bars?
Last time you ran on the treadmill? What are your feelings lately about the treadmill?
How many times a week do you eat out/get food to go for lunch?
