22 mile long run w/ hill repeats
My day was pretty productive today. I had a much needed day off from work, so I took the time to do my long run and run some important errands.
So, I woke up this morning at 5 o'clock and headed to Key Biscayne to run. It was 58 degrees with about 15 mph winds-freezing I tell you!! You might think that's warm, but this Miami gal wasn't bred for any weather below 75! Anywho, while driving to Key Biscayne, I encountered this massive traffic jam on the highway...I nearly started crying, but after 30 minutes of this, I was on my merry way.
I began my workout at about 6:15 am and 2 1/2 hours later I was done and feeling refreshed. Ok, so I was actually sore and with stiff hands from the cold and come to think of it, I kind of looked like Harry from Dumb & Dumber with frozen bugers from the cold. But nevertheless, it was a good workout and the scenery was fantastic! When I was done, I ate a Clif Bar and drank lots of agua.
After my run I hurried home and ate a nice big breakfast of oatmeal with walnuts and hard-boiled eggs. Yum! I relaxed for about 2.5 seconds and then I headed over to my cardiologist in the Cleveland Clinic. Because I'm an endurance runner and my training is so intense, I like to check my corazon ❤ every 6 months just to make sure everything is in check. Dr. Wolinsky told me I had a great heart and that I was ready for Boston! Check my doc out.
Fun fact about my doc: he was the cardiologist for the NY Giants when he worked in New York.
I figured I would do some "girl stuff" so I went shopping! I got myself an adorable Spring dress and a pair of Jessica Simpson wedges. Love love love em!! Now I gotta find a place to wear my new outfit!!
Ok, so technically I should be resting since I ran so many miles today, but I had no choice but to run my errands today because mañana I'm back at work.
To end the evening, I will be going to my brother-in-law's, Dax, house for dinner. Fish is what's for dinner, mmmmm!
What do you do on your days off?
