Holy Moly, I took on the humidity yesterday for my Sunday Long run.... and, I was not defeated like last week when I had to throw in the towel after 7 miles!!! YAY!!!! If I hadn't been so tired, I would have taken one of those jump in the air photos! LOL!!!! But, above, is all that I could mustard!!!
None-the-less, I was able to crank out 12.01 (oh yes, I will simply not round down to 12 miles.... for goodness sake, I ran 12.01!!!! IN THIS SOUTH GEORGIA HEAT & HUMIDITY--HA!HA!) at a 10:12 average pace!!! Actually, I ran better than I had thought! I was happy to have one more HOT & HUMID South Georgia run behind me!!!!! Woooohoooooooo!!!!!!!!
After my long run, I proceeded with my usual Sunday morning ritual of heading to the grocery store..... Seriously, around 7-7:30 am is the BEST time to go to PUBLIX!!! The store is deserted!!!! LOL!!! Well, there were a couple of other people shopping as well.... and, sometimes, I run into people I know.....ugh.... and, you know after running, I look like a TOTAL SWEATY HOT MESS!!!! Andddddddd, not to mention that I TOTALLY STINK!!!!!! Let me tell you, I do not smell like fresh sweet roses!! NOPE!!!! why do I mention this? Well, of course I ran into one of the physicians from my work place.... LUCKILY, I was in my car driving through the parking lot leaving when I saw him.... he too saw me, so I did roll down window and wave while saying "hello"....... but whew, close call!!! At least he couldn't see what a total mess I looked like or smell me!! HA!HA!HA! Runner problems, right?!?!? :D
YES!!! You are so seeing the BEST DEAL EVER at publix!!!!! Oh yes, your eyes are NOT deceiving you!!!! The peanut butter was BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE!!!!!! I am not kidding you!!!!! If someone had been standing around me, I would have so asked them to pinch me.... I mean, I really thought I was dreaming!!!! Better believe I scooped up some of these!!! LOL! And, if you hadn't known about this fabulous deal, and are heading out to take advantage, you are welcome!!! :)
Monday morning(today), I headed to spin class.... I tell you, I am not sure if it is me or what.... but, I have been to 3 different spin classes recently (one at 5am, 6am, and today 8:30am) anddddddd not another spinner at the beginning of class!!! I am not the most confident spinner, and I so hate when I feel like the instructor's eyes are all on me. With Each class, at least 1 or 2 people eventually joined, but man.... I hate being the only one in there! Anyway, it is a good work out and definitely helps on cross training days!
This is just a random picture from last night...... these are my 2 favorite guys... we ate at the Texas Roadhouse which is the family favorite restaurant!!! Gotta love a restaurant with GREAT sweet potatoes, am I right?!!! Kinda like a grocery store with peanut butter, buy one-get one free.....LOL!!! Yes, I am still not over that I actually got peanut butter on a BOGO deal!!! :D
Well, hopefully your training has started off on a good foot this week. Hope those with upcoming races are surviving taper mode! I am just going to try to stay on track with this week's training. So far, I feel pretty good.... hopefully, I make all the early morning work outs! Take care........ more soon! UNTIL LATER..........
