Audience appreciate alliteration?
Long fricking fracking day today. Got in the car at 7am with a thick layer of ice on my windshield. By mid-day it was 60 degrees? WTF? It was sunny and beautiful and all I could think was….
….how much I wanted to go for a run.
Today was much busier and longer than yesterday. My plan was to do yoga at home which is the only thing I can typically handle after a 10 hour teaching day. Much, much, MUCH to my shock, as I sat in terrible traffic, I made the decision to do W3D3 in my neighborhood when I got home. That’s right, folks. Not only was I going to run after a full work day, I was going to run HILLS.
And it was amazing. Much easier than either of my workouts on the treadmill this week?! Could I actually be an outdoor running convert? I imagine my running portions were a bit slower but my heart was at a comfortable elevated rate the entire time. So comfortable, in fact, that I added an extra 5 minute running segment at the end! As I ran, I could really imagine successfully running a race.
I absolutely cannot wait.
P.S. Did yoga afterward and still haven’t looked at the scale. In case anyone is keeping track…
