Yes, felt like Christmas when this issue of Runner's World arrived in the mail!!! One thing that I found interesting in this issue is the table (see below) that offers an estimate of how fast you can run a 10K based on your past 5K or half marathon times..... pretty neat because I have ran all three distances and this chart is pretty right on!!!!!
This is the best picture I took take of the table. In the small print below the table, is a the following link that allows you to enter your known past results for 5K or half marathon distance to predict expected 10K finish time.... check it out! http://www.runnersworld.com/tools/race-times-predictor
Stretching after running..... one thing that I don't always do, but need to!!!! I mean, I get done with my run and instantly it seems it is back to the grind of the "real world." I have read that post run yoga stretches are Great....... and recently, I found this link that shows actual recommended post run stretches! The link has a series of different recommended yoga stretches that are recommended by Rebecca Pacheco. She is awesome! I really think this has helped with my lower back issues... or perhaps it is all in my head, either way, it seems to be helping.... check it out! http://www.runnersworld.com/runners-world-yoga-center
Today was a rest day! So, no running for me.... just work & errands kind of day!
Ben's birthday is Wednesday, party Saturday, and graduation on the 19th!!! And he was so over due for a hair cut..... therefore, it was an emergency stop at a place you could simply walk in to!!! Ben isn't too picky about his hair, but he wasn't too happy about not going to the hairdresser that he normally sees...... but, unfortunately due to poor planning on my part (and not to mention that I am on a 12 day straight work week), I kept forgetting to schedule an appointment! Oh well!! It is cut and at least styled now!!!
We spotted a rabbit on our walk when we got home! Too Cute!!!
So, when your 5 (soon to be 6) year old writes his name in the dirt on your car, it is probably time to get it washed!!! LOL!!! Tomorrow, thank goodness, a guy that has a mobile car wash is coming to wash it!!! Again, just too much going on and car wash LOW on priority list!!!!!
Have a GREAT rest of the day!!! Until later...........
How was your Monday? Great? or Monday blues?
DO you do yoga stretching? Helpful?
