But really, this run felt great!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone celebrating today!
I found this article on Twitter this morning on the 5 Superfoods Jesus Ate Regularly!
No wonder they have magic powers!
My day started super early. I was wide awake at 2:30AM. I mean WIDE awake! I should have offered Santa a hand. So after laying in my bed for a half hour, I decided to use this energy for my scheduled 5 mile tempo run.
The workout totaled 7 miles and pace was average 7:29 including warm up and cool down. My 5 at tempo averaged about 6:50. It felt pretty good and like I could keep going if need be. I would love to be able to sustain that pace for a half or full marathon, but I won’t get ahead of myself.
How am I celebrating?
I am going to my parent’s house here shortly to open gifts and relax. We always have a big Christmas dinner and this year I successfully asked my mom to make spaghetti so I could enjoy the feast as well. She was great and obliged. I just love her homemade tomato sauce and am really looking forward to it. I supplied the rosemary focaccia bread sticks. I really slaved for those…(thanks CTB!)
Later this afternoon I have plans with my friend Jill (remember those muffins?!) to go to the movies to see Wild. We’ve both read the book and by then will both be “familied” out 🙂
How are you celebrating?
