Today’s run: 3 miles.
Yes, it’s a week before the actual training begins, but this has been a great week to get me back into the swing of things before things get serious. The weather here in Jersey was beautiful today (somewhere around 50, sunny) so I threw on my SPIbelt, blasted Young the Giant on Pandora, and hit the concrete (with the best friend, whose knee held up pretty good today).
It was a rough start – my legs felt like lead and I’ve been awake since 3:30 AM (damn morning bartending shift) but once my blood got to pumpin’, I felt great. No leaky nose or numb toes in this sun!
Aside from dodging a few cars (we tend to run in the street more than we should), it was a great 3 miler.
So far, so good. Time to refuel and relax.
In the meantime, check out this epic video from The Color Run. I’ve done two already and can’t wait to do another! One of the best times you could ever have as a runner.
