Happy Saturday Sweets,
I hope your weekend is off to a great start. HM and I got up at 6:30am today in an attempt to beat the heat on our 8 mile run. It was a rolling hills course and we kept a pretty even pace of 10:30. We finished in 1 hour and 24 minutes. I consider this an improvement because my best half marathon pace was at a 10:27 pace. Hopefully race excitement will turn today's 10:30 into 9:55 on race day. The run felt pretty good but I have no pictures for you. Which is for the best. Waking up at 6:30am on a Saturday (and doing a long run) can really strain a marriage. Magically once you both finish the run there is an abundance of Top Gun high fives and things return to normal.
When I returned home, I decided it would be for the best to take a semi-ice bath. Okay, I was too lazy to add the ice so I just filled the basement bathtub with freezing cold water from the tap (our basement is freezing and so is the tap water). I was so hot by the end of the run, I forewent the usual hot beverage typically enjoyed during ice baths, but I still needed a fleece half way through. Here is the picture all you sweets have been waiting for, me in the bathtub:
Sexy. Don't hate me cause you ain't me!
After bath time ended, I put on (with great difficulty) my compression socks. Those suckers are tight and it would be a lie if I said I didn't break a sweat putting them on. Damn stupid socks. Here is another picture to make you jealous:
I make pink tube socks look goooooood.
The next hour of my life is missing. From what I can piece together (HM) I fell asleep. Only to be woken up by this:
Sweet HM. How could we ever have been grumpy with each other?
What do you sweets have planned for today? A crazy workout? Fun plans? Come on, make me jealous!
