Aside from the weather, my run today was fantastic! I did a 10 minute warmup, 30 minutes speedy, then 10 minutes to cooldown. At first, when dealing with the wicked wind and bitter cold the run felt drab, but once I warmed up I felt great. I rocked those 30 minutes and even had trouble slowing myself down for those last 10. I ran 5.89 miles in 50:05. Average pace: 8:30. Average pace for the 30 minutes in the middle: 7:57. Like I said, this felt great. Either the moon and stars are aligned in some special way, or hey, maybe training might actually work. lol
I did not do the WOW today. I didn't want to take the chance of throwing myself over the edge and being stupid. That's ok with me.
I did a forearm plank today for 5:08. Yes, my dear Calloway (the cat I mentioned previously) was laying right there, purring like crazy. Just a side story - his name is Calloway because one of my all time favorite movies is the Blues Brothers. I've probably seen it a million and three times. Any time I'm channel surfing and it pops up I will stop to watch it in its entirety. I just love it. One of my favorite parts of the movie is when Cab Calloway sings "Minnie the Moocher". So, why not name the cat after him?
