Amy ditched me and ran with Randy yesterday for her long run. I couldn't go with them because I had to work.
Plus, there were moments of sun.
On my rest day.
This morning I got to sleep in and join Wear Blue: Run to Remember for their group run and Social Saturday this morning!
I really enjoy running with this group. Their energy and positive message are just amazing.
It could be totally depressing, but they manage to make it a wonderful run, filled with family and friends.
I planned on running their 6 mile route, but it turned out that Chrissy, Reed, George, Deborah, and Drew all were planning on doing the 3 mile route so I joined them instead. My friend Mike is training for his upcoming marathon so he had 14 miles and joined some runners training for the Tacoma Marathon.
I had a great time!
There is always a but...
Since I didn't do a Long Run, coupled with the fact that I got my butt handed to me at last weeks Speed Work out with Rich I decided I needed to actually start my New Years Resolution to add more Strength Training to my week.
Otherwise known as SUPER HARD.
I went with super sets of 3 minutes because I want to be able to walk tomorrow.
I've also been having trouble with super stiff hips so I decided to add a Yoga program that was supposed to help stretch them out.
I hate Yoga. I'm super bad at it.
It also showed me that I really need to do it.
