Today was dance production’s running day. I ran with them like last week and was proud to find that I ran it in 8:16. That ws 17 seconds faster than last week! I think it was because I didn’t feel the need to hold back as much. Last week was the first time I’d run the track as a teacher and felt a little weird, and it was also hot and I didn’t want to push it. Today I really wanted to beat my time, and boy did I beat it! Now the challenge is to get below 8 minutes! I’m hoping this will help me PR again in the Long Beach Half on October 7th.
I was hungry when I got home, and I’m still planning on going to ballet tonight, so I had a couple of pancakes and spread almond butter on one. I usually have pretty small after-work snacks, but today I just felt like I needed more.
It definitely hit the spot.
This morning I posted on yesterday’s Fitmixer photo challenge. Today’s challenge was to take a picture of your least favorite muscle. For me, that would be my calves, hands down. I feel like they’re huge and gross.
So there you go. By posting this picture I’m trying to face my self-consciousness about my calves. Yay me??
