Day 345: On Wednesday I attempted a four mile run, but my sore legs were telling me something else. It sounded like “go home, stop running.” Instead, after running two miles to Washington Park I decided to turn my phone/ipod into a phone and call a good pal. She made fun of my need to walk and we talked for the next 30 minutes until I was back into our apartment. I continue to stand by the idea of grabbing your phone and calling a friend when you need a little encouragement or distraction. It’s the best way to help a workout fly by.
Day 346: Thursday evening I went to a CPY flow class and sweat out all of my sore muscles and post wedding ice cream (yes, I am still indulging in the “I don’t have to wear a wedding dress again!” eating habits).
Day 347: Yesterday was one of those days where I barely had time to feed myself, but had to figure out how to sweat. I went on a quick 30 minute run around the neighborhood while mentally figuring out how I can try to make my hair not look dirty if I “recycle” it after my sweaty run.
*I swear by Pantene Pro-V’s dry shampoo for your gal on the go, with sweaty hair- needs.
Day 348: This morning was one of Denver’s largest half-marathon’s and although I was not participating in it, I went to cheer on some of my friends with my co-workers. All of the roads in my neighborhood were shutdown at 4:00 a.m., which would have made driving to the group meeting spot quite difficult. Instead, I hopped on my bike and rode the three miles while sipping on my coffee and trying my best to smile at every cop giving me a dirty look for riding in their blocked off streets. After an hour and a half of cheering, I hopped back on my bike and headed into work (2 miles) and then rode home at the end of the day (2 more miles). I even tagged on an extra twenty minutes of riding for good measure.
*We got our wedding pictures back today, I was so excited that I wanted to share a few!
