Good afternoon, blog land! Sorry for the delayed post — I spent most of the morning chugging coffee, eating granola bars, and sitting in an airport/plane/taxi/metro.Anyways, when I got back to DC mid-morning, all the caffeine must have kicked in because I just wanted to RUN.It’s cold out, but sunny! And after days of grey skies it felt so lovely to see the light again.I’ve got a busy week ahead (which includes a snow/ice storm coming on Thursday) and am thus “front loading” a lot of my miles this week. Front loading = doing all your long/hard runs earlier in the week, and saving your legs/energy for the weekend. I have mixed feelings on front loading miles (the question: is it better to do a weekend long training run on fresh legs, or on tired legs?) but will save that chat for a day when I have more time to really geek out.
Anyways, my mind is clearly wandering today… which means my run was almost over before I knew it!I followed a similar route to what I covered with Catherine on Saturday. I decided today that Lincoln has become my favorite monument. I see him at least twice a week and we have become dear friends.I have no idea how/why I ran so fast. Especially given that I’ve been awake since 4 am?And also given the amount of Mexican food I consumed last night?My family topped off my weekend Tennessee trip with a visit to Chuy’s. It didn’t disappoint!…and now I am officially exhausted. Time for more coffee!
- Front loading miles: yay or nay?
- Has this winter storm hit anyone yet?
- Last plane ride you went on?
