Last night was day 1 of the plan and called for a 2 mile easy run at 9:40 pace. I usually run at a 9:30 pace so it was hard to find just my niche just a tad slower. I found it in the end and had a nice run. Tonight is a planned tempo run of a 1 mile warm up, 3 miles at 8:08 pace, and a 1 mile cool down. The thought of this run scares me... Slightly... It's okay though, it will be hard but the best thing I can do is try, right? :)
In other food news, I made a colossal mistake at the grocery store on Monday. I accidentally bought the fat free pretzels and they taste disgusting.
ALSO, my Oiselle shorts came in the mail from The Clymb.
|Don't mind the dismal lighting. The shorts are lavender, not grey.|
It has been so cold outside that I haven't gotten the chance to wear them yet. I don't want to wear them to the gym for lifting or cross training; I want to wait until the temps are a little warmer and I can wear them outside for a RUN! Oh Chicago weather, why must you be so confusing! I like to "save" my favorite workout clothes for group runs, long runs, or races. I think I get to enjoy them the most that way. Do you feel the same way about workout clothes? Do you "save" your favorite workout outfits for certain types of workouts?
