I have some random tangents for you on the last day before the weekend. Phew. We are almost there friends…
*I have kept this quiet because I didn’t want to jinx it…but I think its time to air it out loud:
My husband has been running lately.
Let’s pause to let that sink in…My husband hates running.
Complains about it all the time.
Thinks its dumb.
BUT—This dude—again– MY HUSBAND —started running a couple weeks ago! He is starting out on the treadmill, and after that I’m confident that he will move outside (eventually) Last Friday night he did FIVE MILES on the treadmill. Proud wife over here! We have yet to run together but it’s happening at some point soon (because I will make him)
Nice wife that I am, I bought this guy his own pair of Compression Socks. (Pro is having a 40% off sale sitewide using coupon code FALL) and I also bought myself a marathon socks grab bags ( I really love the grab bags!) I would show you a picture i took of him IN his socks but he said “if my feet wind up on the blog, I will kill you.”
Obviously, the runner in me is already thinking about running races together (like a turkey trot) We shall see!!!
*Speaking of compression socks.. My grab bag came in the mail at the same time as my husbands socks. Grab bags can be hit or miss-I LOVED all three colors for my calf sleeves grab bag back in July. This one, I’m kind of “eh” about:
I like the lime green–but as far as the orange and Christmas ones go, I wouldn’t ever choose those! It was a good deal though and now I have an excuse to buy something lime green because wouldn’t you know it-I don’t own one single lime green piece of clothing besides these socks!!
As seen on my run last night…
Clearly–/ I need some more lime green in my life to match these banging socks!! And also…I will have to do a Ragnar, Right Tantra? 😉
this happened last night during the second part of my run:
This was my least favorite track session, and I could tell how tired I was. My splits were all ranging from 1:36-1:39—usually I am about 1:28-1:34 for a track workout. I could tell how tired I am by these paces because I usually can push myself, but I literally could not go any faster if I tried. Blech. I should hit the track Monday when i was all fired up for it!
Are the leaves changing where you are?
When is the last time someone surprised you?
