It's insane that 7:30 is now sleeping in...

I do love me some Thursday morning runs. Mostly because I get to sleep in 3 hours. It's borderline magical, for sure. Nothing too exciting to report. Just an easy 3 miles, although my legs are no longer aware of what an "easy" pace is. I know that it's not 9 mm, especially the day after a tough speed workout, but try to tell them that. Stupid legs, maybe they needed to go that quick to work out the aches and tightness that yesterday's workout left. Just means that I could get home even quicker so I could catch up on SYTYCD. We were without a TV last week, so our DVR is full of episodes. I'm watching the first episode of the top 20 so please don't spoil it for me!!

3 miles in 27:10 for 9:03 pace.
I forgot to mention yesterday that during my run I was the closest I have ever been to a deer. When I started my run to the gym, there was a deer just looking at me across the street. I didn't want to startle him to run in front of traffic, so I kept talking to him and telling him to run back into the river area. He just kept looking at me. I think I made a friend. :)
Speaking of yesterday's run it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who's a sweat monster.

(GAH! I totally had a someecard to include in here that's hilarious, but I think they changed up the format of their site, and I can't upload it. Sniff.) Go here. It's funny. To prove how sweaty mcsweaterson I truly am, an old co-worker sent me this ecard at the start of this fall. Too funny.
Yay, I'm a genius. Here it is:

Wow that is crazy that 7:30 is sleeping in. Some days I am bitching when that's the time I have to get up ;) Way to go on another great morning run!

I feel like running in the morning helps you to run faster because your legs are not tired from walking around all day and working! i could be wrong though!

I empathize with being a sweat monster. I ran 7 miles on a hotel treadmill a couple days ago and ended up wringing the sweat out of my shirt when I was done. Honestly!
