So I always find that there comes a time on the overnight where I can’t sleep. That’s this week. I’ve been averaging about 5 hours over the past three days. Someone at work said that I’ve got a “newborn” schedule…except for the fact that I don’t get to put anyone in cute outfits. I am super lucky though because J is just about the best partner one could ask for. He helps with laundry and my whiny butt.
Hi! I had a rest day yesterday which I took to do some yoga at home. (We had some serious thunderstorms yesterday so Finn was officially glued to my side). Currently he’s guarding our apartment from everyone.
Today I was to run a 2 mile warm up, 5 miles at half marathon goal pace and 2 cool down. After sleeping 5 hrs I got on the treadmill and was feeling like my warm up was the workout! I know, there are days like that! When I dialed it up to half marathon goal pace my body did a big “No way” which I listened to. I dialed back about :20 per mile for a little faster than marathon pace. I am okay with it. I walked around a bit, didn’t get those 2 mile cool down miles in. I’ll pick those up later in the week.
I’m trying to give myself a break this week. It’s tough. Work can be stressful. Life throws things at you. It is important to not add to it. I am trying to teach myself this lesson. So hard!
One thing I am loving lately?
Legs up in the air, on my foam roller after a run. This is one of my favorite parts of yoga. So refreshing!
