Good morning to you all! I feel like today is my “day off” because I only have to work at one job and it’s not CTB. 6 hours talking about running and selling shoes and then I can catch up on things at home (laundry, cook something?) I had a fabulous speed workout this morning and feel ready to take on the day…or sit on my butt at work 🙂
2 mile warm up
Pyramid workout at 6:00 per mile pace with 400 meter recovery at 10:00 minute pace between each interval
2 mile cool down
I sweated to the extreme through this! It feels good to remember what going fast is. When I am running outside, I like doing distance. When I am on the treadmill, speed play keeps my mind occupied. The first interval though, that is a mind battle. I never think I can do it until I’m doing it. Does anyone else experience this?
5 Things I Read:
In Defense Of Low Fat: I have been very skeptical of Denise Minger’s work. For a while it seemed like she was guilty of finding research to support the way she lived her life. I may stand corrected. This is a great accumulation of research on the findings of truly low fat diets. I applaud her writing and may be a new fan.
The WHO Deems Red Meat a Group 1 Carcinogen : I get it, many things we consume cause cancer. Many people will not stop eating bacon. However, being vegan for ethical reason causes this report to be a huge win. Health conscious consumers will eat less meat, therefore killing less animals and that is the point for me.
NFL’s Brandon Marshall to Combat Mental Health Stigma : This is kind of incredible. A man in arguably a very “manly” sport where mental illness may be considered weak has designed a clothing line to advocate for better care for the mentally ill. Cheers!
10 Thoughts Introverts Have About Parties : All of the above for me. I am guilty of getting so stressed about details I don’t want to go anymore because I am exhausted…
