Saturday I ran my race. What a GREAT day I had. It was -18, but with the wind chill it felt like -26. It was unusually damp also. So, we ran the race in our fastest time yet, because I was f*cking cold! At one point my running partner "J" said "Fatinah, what's gotten into you - you're running so fast" I told her I had just lost the feeling in my ass!
Anyhow, we finished at 36:50, which is fan-freakin-tastic because we were running 10:1's. Then, when we got back inside, they were giving out FREE subway subs! I love subway subs, and they had veggie on brown. I can't even tell you how fast we both inhaled our sandwiches - neither of us had really eaten breakfast. We then called our girlfriend to tell her we were done and we all met at Starbucks for a latte. Well, they each had two cap's, but one latte is my max. It was such a fun morning.
So, now we need to find a run to do in the new year to keep us out there....so far all I've found is a 1/2 marathon - but that's not for me.
Yesterday I had a GREAT run on the treadmill (it was -26 again) - I did 50 minutes of walking and running and logged almost 7k. I felt really great after.
Oh, I stopped drinking alcohol. Not in a 12 step way, but I think that not spending points on booze will really help me stay on plan. Plus, it is cheaper to go to dinner if you don't have 3 glasses of wine to pay for, which ends up costing more than I would spend on a bottle. Of course, I have a bunch of lunches and a Christmas party, but.....eh, just means I will wake up feeling good enough to go for a run the next day!
Have a healthy day bloggers!
