i shake my butt

the scene:

tuesday evening, 5:30pm.
rainy.
39 degrees.
runmute home with 4-mi tempo.

i don't want to be a chicken.
i don't want to be a duck.


this stupid song. stuck in my head.

i think the slapping of my feet on the wet pavement made me think of the "clap clap clap clap" portion.

regardless, it was annoying.

stuck in your head now? you're welcome.


tuesday (2/1) am run: 2.75 miles, 25:02 (avg pace 9:06), 39*
i overslept my alarm and didn't have much time but i forced myself out the door for what little time i had.

tuesday (2/1) pm runmute: 7.5 miles, 1:01:59 (tempo miles 7:44, 7:52, 7:36, 7:51), 39*
you can clearly tell where the two big hills were. boo.

you like how i can pull doubles now and not before ragnar? i'm a planner.

  2. Nice morning run AND runmute home! Love it!!! Boo to hills during tempo. That should be outlawed.

    Also, I feel obliged to advise you that we have a SNOW DAY here. You might want to take the day off work in solidarity.

  4. Those are the best commutes - clears the mind. Sometimes my little 6 miler can take hours (I run the wrong way).

    Good thing I don't know that song, otherwise it probably would be stuck in my head now! ;-) It sometimes has advantages, not having grown up here! ;-)

  10. You're so much cooler and reliable than I am. Chicken dances and run recaps. I remember the days when I could reliably kick these out. Alas, I'm stuck in the trenches of apathy towards myself.

    Thanks for the lunch-time inspiration!
