OMG guys… the weather Friday was amazing!!! I told you I would get outside and if you follow me on Instagram, you know I stayed true to my word!! ;) Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 65*!! I’m super bummed though because I’m inside all day tomorrow working 14 hours! Ugh! Thursday, the day I can actually get outside again, is supposed to be 25*!! How does that work?! for real!! I LOVE being outside and just getting out Friday has improved my mental state and outlook on life after being stuck inside all winter long!!
Look guys… no gloves!! ;)
Look at this weather!! It was absolutely glorious!! (Now this song is stuck in my head)
I was going to pull up some Garmin stats for you all, but somehow I misplaced my USB when we moved… hopefully I can find it!! You’ll just have to settle for pictures and taking my word for it! ;)
I RAN 2 MILES STRAIGHT… WITHOUT STOPPING!!!
Longest run post-injury with no pain to report!! I’m super pumped!!
Do you see that average pace?!! Holy Brooks Ravennas Batman!! Where did that come from?!
I’ve been running 11 something miles on the treadmill but Friday my pace per mile was:
Mile 1 – 9:54
Mile 2 – 10:37
I guess it just felt amazing to finally get outside again!! Remember how I told you there are no hills where we moved?? Well Friday I even found a little hill to run up! ;)
Like I said… It’s tiny! ;)
After I got home, I stretched, foam rolled, and drank a green monster! All the stretching, strengthening, yoga, and rolling I’ve been doing must be helping!! There are some days when I feel a little ache in my knee, but nothing compared to how it used to be!! I’m so happy about the healing progress and pray that it continues to heal!! I’ve made a pact with myself that if at any point the pain comes back/gets worse I will immediately call the orthopedic doctor!! (hold me to it guys!!)
And now the moment I know you’ve been looking forward to… I know you skipped my post just to see if you were the winner!
Really guys??? Really?!!
It’s ok… I’ll forgive you! (this time)
Congrats Tessa B.!! You’ve won the Sprint Pack from Apera Bags!! Look for an email shortly!! :)
Are you recovering from an injury??
Do you prefer to run/workout inside or outside??
Do you stretch, foam roll, or stick after working out?
