Dos What I Pleases

^^^THAT SUCKS! Especially when I was really looking forward to super duper long run with G-Bonez.  I refuse to run him on city streets and sidewalks, so I had to take him home and do my work out all by me onsie. 

I got a killer hill work out it.  Totally kicked my glutes.  Of course my garmin pooped out too so I have no real data for you guys, but trust me when I say it was GOOD.  I ran 1.75 miles to this quarter mile hill, and did repeats at full speed.  So 2800, with 400x8 incline repeats and 2800.  I just made that up, but it sounds legit right?

This is my: ZOMG! It's hotttt face.

It was seriously balls hott yesterday, and I fought myself to not jump into the city pool that was on my route.  It felt really good to push that hard.  During a work out, do you ever feel like you literally can't do anymore-like you are on the brink of passing out and then the second you stop you immediate think I could of gone harder/faster/longer? Running is constant battle with dissatisfaction and desire to go harder/faster/longer, but last night I was smitten.  I did exactly what my body would physically allow for.

That was my last hill work out before Hospital Hill Marathon on Saturday! So excited!

I know I really pushed myself when I feel like I am going to puke.

Glad you are posting regularly again. I've missed your posts.

I feel like I should push myself until I puke sometime and then stay just under that for the rest of my running career. I'm crazy.

Good luck with the marathon!
