I could really use some coffee right now. Or tea. Yes, tea. Nice and milky tea.
I really am a fan of milky tea. I did not know this was thing until this past weekend. I wanted something hot that was not coffee. My coworker told me to make black tea and put milk and sugar in it. I was skeptical, but the Ethiopians do it during marathon training right? I tried it, and I am a FAN!
I would tell you that I recieved some awesome pants via Amazon and let’s just say, Sterling loves them too. Because the weather was also balmy yesterday, I wore them to work. About 70% of customers said they loved my spandex…even one really odd man who said he would wear them. #FriendshipGoals
Speaking of Sterling, he joined me watching YouTube this morning. I have been binging on Flotrack, VO2Max Productions and Ellen. The inspiration I get from it is really great. It makes me want to go back out and train even if I just came back from a workout.
Speaking of working out (I’m just full of segways today) yesterday was my first planned workout. I. Almost. Died. The workout was 6×800 meters at 5:20 pace. That translates to roughly 2:36 per repeat. I would be lying if I said I had ever run faster than this in my life. I did not run the 800 faster in high school. My PR was 2:38. Oh how the tables have turned. I am really glad I only had to do 6. I did not have another one in me. The last repeat was so challenging, all I keept repeating was “I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” Whew! It hurt so good. The whole workout was only 28 minutes (not including warm up and cool down).
I have been favoring longer cool downs recently. Today I just wanted to keep going at a 10:00 pace forever. Then I remembered I wanted to eat breakfast at some point and that I still had mobility work to do. #priorities
One last thing before I let you go. Mac and cheese FOR DAYS! I saved a bunch of it from work a while ago and froze what I couldn’t finish…defrosted it on Sunday=lunch today and yesterday. I actually mixed it with chili and that took my life to another level!
What would you tell me if you were having coffee?
What was the last workout that hurt so good?
