March in Review + New 'Do
Most hardcore run: 7 tempo miles. It. Sucked. But I'd imagine I am a stronger runner because of it. Right? RIGHT!?!?!? I purposely haven't looked forward in my planner just because I'm assuming there's a longer and faster tempo workout to come. [shudders]
Favorite Race: St. Patty's Day 5 miler. Auto PR + my fave holiday + one butt ton of Green = What's not to love people? Oh yes, the massive mud and poorly organized day. I remember now. :P
Current Jams: Ke$ha--Dancing with tears in my eyes & Hungover, Rihanna--Rude Boy,
This week has been a cut back week (praise the Lord!). My poor leggies were hurting last week. Last night was my last run for the month. As everyone was shouting out their mileage for the month on twitter, I was prompted to check my running log: 142.8. Well I couldn't end the month with 150.8 miles could I? Hell no. I headed out after working in gorgeous 70 degree temps. I just let my legs do what they wanted to do, and apparently that's a bit faster than my easy pace. I figured I would compensate with the 8 miles slated for the following morning.
I did 8.2 miles in 1:16:20 for a pace of 9:19.
This morning I begrudgingly got out of bed. I always plan to run before work on Thursdays (I work a late shift) but always end up sleeping in. A friend is in town back from school for Easter, and we're going to take on the town so I had to get out there. Morning running! How could I have forgotten about you?!?!? It took a couple of miles for the legs to wake up, but after that I was crusing along. My effort level was 10 minute miles, but my actual pace was around 9:10-9:15. It was crazy. You gotta love those runs. All day I've been feeling my fabulous runner's high. I think morning running and I might be rekindling our flame this spring. ;)
I did 8 miles in 1:14:15 for a pace of 9:17.
In sad news, my office husband moved offices. The following are various email excerpts to how I feel about this travesty.
Email to Nick (yes he knows about my office husband, and is ok with it....at least as far as I know!):
Did you ever get moved in high school because you talked too much to your friends that sat around you in certain classes? Surprise surprise, I did. All the time. Apparently I’m a bit of a talker?!?!?!?
Anyway, my office husband had to/got to relocate to an office farther away. I feel like this is the corporate version of desk moving. :(
Also random/awesome email brainstorm with the office husband:
Jeri: I hate that you’re not next door. Shall we craft tin can phones this afternoon?
Tom: yes we should or get web cams so we can skype
Jeri: Hahahahahah we should totally skype from two offices down. Love it.
RIP office relationship. I've already got one distance relationship on my hands, I just can't hack #2. :(
