Hello friends! I have decided to join Amanda at Running with Spoons for her “Thursdays are for…Thinking Out Loud” series. What’s in it for me? A brain dump. What’s in it for you? Total randomness! Enjoy!
Spring is here? I feel like it’s an April Fools joke… Last week was so lovely out that I wore SHORTS on my long run. I woke up today…to Snow Showers. And yes – I bundled up from head to toe. It wasn’t that it was THAT cold out…it was that the snow was coming down in a fury!
I missed a full hour of work today. Why? Fire alarm. I was peacefully sitting in my hubby’s office – chatting away and chowing down on lunch – when we got a knock on the door telling us that there was smoke on our floor. We stepped out and yep, sure enough…there was a smoky haze in the hallway. We quickly grabbed our jackets and proceed to walk down 23 flights of stairs. Luckily we didn’t have to stand outside as we were sheltered in the Plus15 hallways. I got a good pic though!
I had an awesome progression run last night. (<– On the Dreadmill Treadmill!) Not on purpose, as the intent of last night’s run was to test out my NEW SHOES – but I just felt good. I did a 1 mile warm-up walk, followed by 0.5 miles @ 6.2 pace, then 0.5 miles @ 6.4 pace. Then I thought…why not try one more mile? 0.2 miles @ 6.6, 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, and 7.0. THEN I thought…let’s try another half…up the speed a bit! So another 0.2 miles @ 7.2, then 7.4…with the last 0.1 mile @ 7.5. Overall, not too shabby!I’m getting my hair done tonight!!! Do you know just how hard it is to find a hair salon in a new city? I’m so nervous…I hope all goes well! Definitely highlights…possibly bangs! Some inspiration pics:
What does your Thursday look like?
