Well I have the Krispy Kreme Challenge tomorrow. I ran Sunday in my neighborhood for the first REAL time. It was beautiful and I couldn’t pass it up. I set out to explore the streets. I found that is smaller than I thought. I went out from the house with the intent that I couldn’t cop out and just go home. If I got out there, I had to get back. I did a 2.5 mile loop with the dog who started struggling (poor guy). I took him home and turned around and went back out. I ran up killer hills and really pushed myself. I got the high again and i was so happy. It takes me 1.5-2 miles to get out of the beginning funk and then I feel like I can run forever.
Still have sore hips but I went to a core and stretch class on Wednesday after a Tuesday lunch run and it felt amazing. I just need to remember the new stretches I learned. Maybe I will share here for everyone. Is that something people want?
So music. I honestly picked out this weeks songs not by running but just listening at work and finding motivating songs.
1. Cody Simpson – La Da Dee (From the credits of Cloudy with a Change of Meatballs 2 – my new favorite movie!)
2. Elle Goulding – Burn
3. Charli XCX – What I Like
4. The Holidays – Voices Drifting (I really just like the sound of this in my headphones mostly)
5. John Legend – Made to Love (Benny Benassi remix)
