The track workout on Tuesday was successful, and really fun! However...it was also very hot out.
|When I got into my car after work...yikes.|
The track was really busy- there was a triathlon group training, some college bros playing 500 on the infield, and some other random folks jogging in lane 7. It was a little crazy but I loved seeing all the people enjoying the nice weather!
Wednesday is my half day so I bought new running shoes (I found a pair of the Ravenna 3s in my size at a local store! yes!!) and ran 7 miles in Minneapolis, around the lakes.
I took yesterday off and will only go about 4 tonight..because tomorrow I am running a 10 mile race! Yes, I am trying to race myself into shape for the half marathon! Runner's World can explain this concept better than me...but basically, you use races as quality workouts to improve your fitness before the goal race. I'd like to run the race tomorrow in 70:00- the course is supposed to flat so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Is this a good idea? I guess I'll find out on June 22!

And a new beer! This is an oatmeal milk stout. It is pretty good- I'd rate it a 7.5 out of 10. It is a little heavy for summer- it might be time to switch to some lighter stuff (or margaritas)!
Favorite summer drink?
- Gin and Tonic with lime
