come and do drawerings with me!
this one guy used to say that alllll the time in studio. i was a landscape arch major before making the boring decision to switch to business (zzz). although i'd probably be unemployed right now if i was in the larch field...
guess i had to keep with my bi-polar theme by totally sidetracking there. back to the running...
yesterday i was plodding along, feeling pissed, upset and about to cry for no reason. i felt like i was running hard, but every glance down at my wrist showed i was barely hanging on to the low-9:00's. the pace definitely felt faster than it appeared.
|yes, i decided to give myself clothes this time.|
that is the new sugoi souchi tuke on my head,
a christmas present to myself.
today, my run-mute home from work felt slow and i figured i could blame it on the gusty wind (up to 20mph). however, garmin would tell me i was maintaining an 8:30-8:45 pace. what the heck? it felt slower than yesterday, yet somehow was faster. it's highly likely that my legs were just happy to not be at work. i also had to wear my glasses because i forgot my contacts; i haven't run in glasses since 7th grade, but luckily they didn't annoy me.
wednesday (12/22) pm run: 6.5 miles, 59:07 (avg pace 9:06), 55*
thursday (12/23) runmute: 7.5 miles, 1:05:30 (avg pace 8:44), 42*
(don't worry amber, i pre-drew these at work before runmuting home. typically getting out of work early + running = a good mood, so i was assuming i'd enjoy the run. the gamble paid off, i can use this drawering. yes i am aware it is supposed to be drawing.)
