I’d like to thank Cameron’s very veggie pasta dish from last night and the humidity finally letting up for a great tempo run today. 1 mile warm up, 6 miles at half marathon pace, 1.4 mile cool down with 1 minute rest in between miles. My tempo mile splits were 7:29, 7:30, 7:31, 7:37, 7:25, 7:15. Super stoked about managing to hold onto some miles in the sub-8 department.
Focusing on the mile I’m currently running is what helps make it through these tougher workouts. If I went into it thinking, how many more miles? at what pace?! I’d drive myself Amanda Bynes crazy. Focus on the mile you are running. This helps especially during longer runs & in races. Today focusing on the beer & hot dog I was going to devour at tonight’s baseball game is what pushed me through each mile. What? Should i be focusing on rainbows and butterflies?
So yeah i’ve been to a few baseball games this summer and they’ve been a blast. I’m not cheating on hockey, it’s just something to get by until hockey preseason starts next month. Already have tickets for the Capitals & Blackhawks. Going to any sporting event live is way better than tv. Ask Cameron, I’m notorious for falling asleep during baseball games at home. Pretty sure he puts it on so i’ll pass out and he gets time to himself.
**Fun fact! Laura (pictured below) is running her first 1/2 marathon this October @ the Baltimore Running Festival!! So proud of her already!
Anyone have a birthday coming up?
