Because it’s my blog and I’m not feeling the cutesy today.
1. Today was a speedwork day – hooray! Nice and short, and thank goodness for that because I didn’t get going until 11 am. Hello hot. Five miles total with two 1-mile repeats, easy peasy, and I hit them both at 7:38 (goal was 7:48, w00t). Sadly, I made the total moron move of not bringing anything to drink. Even more sad, I made this same moron move last week and really should have learned my hot and thirsty lesson. Apparently I have short-term memory issues (“Hey, you’re Tony Randall!”).
2. My favorite part of today’s run (besides killing my splits)? The orange Gatorade that was waiting for me when I walked in the door. The Hubs makes Gatorade from powder WAY stronger than I do; it was actually gritty from the undissolved powder and tasted like Tang. YUM!
3. I attempted swim drills yesterday and I didn’t completely suck. I did kick drills, stroke drills and speed drills. Who knows if I did any of them correctly, but I look at it like this: ya gotta start somewhere. Goodness knows when I first started doing running drills I was clueless and that turned out okay. Is there a Swimmer’s World magazine I can subscribe to?
4. Today is my baby’s 10th birthday! I have no idea how he “growed up” so fast, but I’m so excited about the person he is turning out to be. Happy Birthday Little Boy!!
