Matt was very accommodating, but he had his "I'm kind of judging you/laughing at you" face on.
I had done T25 with Elizabeth, but it was only abs, so I really needed a run, but it looked liked maybe it wouldn't happen due to errands and some weird timing with dinner. I had planned to run a flat route and do a tempo run, but the sun was setting and I knew I'd be finished in the dark, so I needed a better route.
I know it's not recommended, but I decided to do my tempo on the bridge. Double speedwork points!
|Temperatures in the 60s, clear skies, and daylight?!|
Mile 1: Keep it slow, self. A tempo run has to start slow; I might be so excited to be running and my legs feel so fresh but I need to save my energy for the bridge.
Mile 2: OMG OMG OMG I AM FLYING UP THIS BRIDGE I JUST PASSED THOSE COLLEGE GIRLS I'M FLYING!!!
|A blurry shot as I began my second ascent on the bridge.|
Mile 4: This feels too slow. I need to find a balance...there it is. Ah, DONE. I am INVINCIBLE!
|Post-run glow. (This is just for you, Kristina - see, I DO sweat!)|
|Our gorgeous path...it was a breezy 68 today. I love springtime!|
Tomorrow we leave in the early afternoon for the second March wedding I've been talking about. I am so excited. I have a new dress that really pushes me out of my comfort zone (meaning it's not black), and Matt is going to look so dapper in his tux.
I'm planning to get a run in either Friday morning or Saturday morning before the festivities begin. Fingers crossed that the weather stays gorgeous!
Sorry to gloat about the weather; you all have my permission to tease me right back from May to October when I'm roasting at 5am!
How are your runs going this week?
Do you like tempo runs?
Bridges: love them or hate them?
