- I nailed my runs. BOOM. *drops ipad*
- I went and had my InsideTracker retest!!! And now am impatiently waiting for the results. Stay tuned. Maybe I can ditch the AARP card. And then get carded when I buy champagne to celebrate my optimal new results. A girl can dream, People. A girl can dream.
- I saw Kevin Hart perform and haven’t laughed that hard in forever. Funny. Shit.
Now for the deets. Here’s how Hansons Marathon Method training went this week. It’s getting REAL.
Monday: 6 “easy” miles. We’ve talked about “easy.” They’re not. They’re imperative to this training program. They provide a “gentle” overload of volume so you’re body is constantly tuckered. You’re perpetually uncomfortable. It’s sadistic, really. But I love them.InsideTracker retest! GULP! Stay tuned! As I was walking out of my appointment, Tina texted me about an oppressively humid run. She was none too pleased with the air quality. I told her what I was doing. Here is our actual exchange:
Thursday: 6 mile early morning tempo run. 8.5 miles total. NAILED IT. Gotta admit. I felt FIERCE after this one. Pace totally on fleek. I’m starting to think I can actually do this. Oh. Hi, Confidence. I’m Colby. Nice to meet you. YES.
Friday: Easy 6 miles. I snuck them in just before My Other Half and I went on a date. Dinner at our favorite vegan restaurant, and then off to see Kevin Hart perform before a sold out crowd. What a comedian. That dude may be small, but he’s the biggest performer I’ve ever seen. Total presence. He was a riot. We were belly laughing. Heads thrown back, tears crawling down our cheeks, laughing from our toes. To laugh like that? The best thing in the world. We felt so ALIVE. I haven’t laughed like that in a long time. Nor had he. Such a great night with My Guy.
Saturday: Easy 8 miles. With a hangover. No Bueno.
Sunday: Easy 8 miles. Or, a running adventure around a beautiful little lake! My Other Half, His Two Quarters, Leon James, Evil Beagle, Drunk Otis and I, all went to the lake My Guy spent his childhood summers on for the weekend. Total zoo. But FUN. Got my run in, my tan on and Drunk Otis went swimming. We all had a blast. Hot summer fun!Total number of miles run: 44
Total number of finger nails I have chewed off waiting for my InsideTracker results: 3
Total number of times I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants: 2
When’s the last time you laughed, I mean BELLY LAUGHED at something? Who’s your favorite comedian? Lake, pool or ocean? GO!
