Hey. How was your weekend? Ours was gloomy and cold. This is where I usually share lovely photos from an outdoor long run…. but instead, this is what I’ve got.Twelve miles on the treadmill — not the most exciting run, but definitely the safe choice given the icy sidewalks on Saturday. I did a progression run in preparation for my race this weekend: 4 miles @ 8:14; then 4 miles @ 7:30; then 4 miles @ 7:04. Phew!
After some extreme calf-stretching (does the treadmill hurt anyone else’s calves more than running outside?) I took a quick shower and drove through snow and slush for one reason: biscuits.JK – there were two reasons! Second was to meet Ashley! We both wanted to try out Biscuit Love, a new brunch spot in the Gulch. Check out their fun little space — love the Nashville sign!And love their food even more. We started out with an order of “bonuts” which stands for biscuit + donut. Best new vocabulary word I’ve learned in a while…I was super hungry after my run and dominated this egg/potato/sausage scramble.Also, it’s really nice meeting up with other bloggers because you can go nuts with the camera with no weirdness or shame. And then you can talk about Internet friends for hours, and not have to wonder whether the other person thinks you’re crazy! New restaurant, new friend! That was fun.
And I made more new friends on Sunday, when Anthony and I attended our first Common Table dinner! Since the Common Table crew had their own photographer, I’ll have to wait to share a full recap with you in the near future!
Now it’s off to work with hopes of sunshine. I am sooooo over winter right now!
- Anyone else have calf tightness after treadmill runs?
- Did you do your long run outside or inside this weekend?
