10 Reasons Today Was a Good Day

Reason 1: 7 miler was finished before 9 AM

IMG_9718

Stats: 7 miles in 57:41 @ 8:14 pace = Recovery Day

Mile splits: 8:17, 8:01, 8:05, 8:23, 8:20, 8:22, 8:15

Pros to the run

  1. Stopped at 3 water fountains along the run AND on the way back.
  2. The shady woods were nice.
  3. Ran with my bff and teammate Jessica!

Cons to the run

  1. The fact that it said it was 72-80 degrees during our run but the humidity made it feel like 90.
  2. Legs felt like bricks and the air was hard to breathe.
  3. Just felt out of shape which will be the feeling for the next few weeks I’m sure.

Reason 2: Listened to Cartel on the drive back to the apartment.

Song I enjoyed most: This is Who We Are – Cartel (I forgot how much I enjoyed this song and the guitar in it haha)

Reason 3: Cartel has new stuff.

I thought “Man it’s been awhile, I bet Cartel has put out new music.” And of course yes, they have.

Reason 4: Cavendish won today!

Reason 5: I had a good lunch and a good popsicle

Reason 6: I went grocery shopping for the apartment on my own. I’d say it was successful for the most part.

Reason 7: Our pool is awesome

Reason 8: I finally saw Lights’ cameo appearance in “Deer in the Headlights” by Owl City

Reason 9: I had a good dinner
