Yesterday’s 32-degree temperatures didn’t stop me and my shadow from running in circles.Well, ovals.
Has anyone ever done hurdles? They look terrifying. They are about half my height and I think if I tried to run and jump over one I would face plant.My workout was a bit terrifying, too. But I did it! (ps, where do you put your keys when you run? I’ve been trying out the shoelace trick and don’t mind it)Mile 1: 6:48; mile 2: 6:51; then three 1000m at 4:09, 4:19, and 4:15. A sad and short one-minute rest between each rep to catch my breath and the pretty sunrise:My total workout covered 6,200m (about 4 miles, plus another mile of warmup/cooldown) and apparently my goal is to hit 8,000m workouts at some point. All this track science can be confusing — I’m glad I have a coach who just tells me what to do!
In other news WE MADE LIMONCELLO.It’s a time-consuming but simple process. Annnnnd the results are pretty dang tasty.
We loosely followed this recipe. Step one: go to Costco, buy a boat load of lemons, and peel them (recommended that you play Italian music in the background)Step two: keep peeling.Step three: Put the peels in a big jar with some grain alcohol (don’t you have 5 bottles of Everclear on hand?)
And let sit in a dark, cool corner for two weeks.
Step four: Strain out the alcohol juice and add it to some sugar water:Then bottle it all up…Look at your lovely creation one last time:And put it in a dark corner for a month!
Step ?? I forgot: Drink it!!And that’s all the life-changing advice I have for you today. Have a great one!
