Find Your Beauty
We allow ourselves to appreciate the beauty of nature- flowers, whatever the length of their stem or the shape of their petals; clouds in the sky, however wispy or puffy- so why don’t we treat ourselves with the same admiration? Just like every bloom, blade or grass or ray of sun, we are beautiful. Sometimes, you have to slow down long enough to let that sink in.
~A moment for yourself (SELF Magazine)
Happy almost Labor Day Weekend! I hope you have a long holiday weekend away from work. Dan and I are going to the lake house with his family this weekend so I needed to get all my serious runs in during the week.
On Tuesday I did double sessions. Vinyassa yoga in the morning and in the evening I hit the track with my dad for 6 x 400.
My dad did double sessions yesterday too. He did 9 1/2 miles in the morning and then 3 x 800 at the track with me in the afternoon. He is killing it!
*1:33 (5:51 pace)
Let me tell you…it felt really good to get back to the track.
Yesterday I recovered with 6 miles.
Today my dad took off from work to do a 20 miler with me since I will be away for Labor Day weekend.
He cruelly tricked me into doing 21 miles instead. Something about the beautiful weather (it was 54 degrees when we started with almost no humidity which is unheard of in NJ in August) and a necessary detour and we ended up with 21 miles at an 8:51 pace. Not bad considering the last 20-miler we completed a few weeks ago was in the 9:19 pace.
*What are your plans for the weekend? Workouts & for fun?!
