Dos What I Pleases


^^^THAT SUCKS! Especially when I was really looking forward to super duper long run with G-Bonez.  I refuse to run him on city streets and sidewalks, so I had to take him home and do my work out all by me onsie. 

I got a killer hill work out it.  Totally kicked my glutes.  Of course my garmin pooped out too so I have no real data for you guys, but trust me when I say it was GOOD.  I ran 1.75 miles to this quarter mile hill, and did repeats at full speed.  So 2800, with 400x8 incline repeats and 2800.  I just made that up, but it sounds legit right?

This is my: ZOMG! It's hotttt face.

It was seriously balls hott yesterday, and I fought myself to not jump into the city pool that was on my route.  It felt really good to push that hard.  During a work out, do you ever feel like you literally can't do anymore-like you are on the brink of passing out and then the second you stop you immediate think I could of gone harder/faster/longer? Running is constant battle with dissatisfaction and desire to go harder/faster/longer, but last night I was smitten.  I did exactly what my body would physically allow for.

That was my last hill work out before Hospital Hill Marathon on Saturday! So excited!

HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU'VE PUSHED AS HARD AS YOU COULD?

I know I really pushed myself when I feel like I am going to puke.

Glad you are posting regularly again. I've missed your posts.

I feel like I should push myself until I puke sometime and then stay just under that for the rest of my running career. I'm crazy.

Good luck with the marathon!
