Today's workout was a tempo run 7 miles total. Warm up - 5 miles @ 8:13 pace then cool down. The plan was the meet at the gym but I wasn't feeling so hot this morning so I bailed and did my run after I sent the boys off to school.
The hard/bad parts: it was just me, the treadmill,and the wall to look at. Oh and the girls asking me questions every few minutes for the first 3 miles then they got bored and went back upstairs. UGH. I dug deep and made myself finish the whole thing but it felt so long because I just sat there and counted every tenth of a mile as is ticked by.
The good parts: I got to sleep in a little. When I got thirsty I hurried upstairs and got a water bottle. My protein shake was only minutes away. I rolled out my legs while they were still warm. And I really like the feel of our new treadmill.
And the best part: When I got hot I just took my shirt off and ran in my sports bra without even caring about my stretch marks showing. HA. I would NEVER do that in public or outside.
