Feet up Friday-floating in the Gulf edition.

Well, I didn’t expect my 5 mile run, after my bike, to feel great! I ran one of my fastest paces as well! If I didn’t have to go to work, I would have run another 5 miles.

I think I am really wrapping my brain around this training bit!

As I finish an grueling hour on my bike trainer, my body says, ‘HELL NO’ to a five mile run to complete my ‘brick’ workout. But my brain is saying, ‘get your ass off the bike and go!’ 

So, tired legs, it is time to run. Forrest. Run.

Here we go…

It is 54 degrees and time to pound out 12 miles. I don’t mind the chill. What I do mind is the layering bit required to manage the chill. What am I supposed to do with a couple of shirts that I must remove or die of heatstroke after the first 3-4 miles? I refuse to tie them around my waist because then my waist will get hot. And, if they unroll and drape over my bum, I will have swamp ass and no one hates swamp ass more than this gal.

Maybe I’ll go with a short sleeved shirt and arm warmers so I can just roll down the warmers and use them to wipe sweat around mile 6.

This gal now has a plan-probably a shitty plan because I am going to be running cold for a solid 30 mins, but a plan!
