In running related news, I felt lazy yesterday. I mean seriously lazy. I deep down wanted to run, but not nearly as much as I wanted to take a nap. I had plans to meet up with Ashley to get in a good bye before her big move, and the idea of a nap before sounded pretty good. You see, I had originally planned to run 6 miles yesterday. Then I went to work and spent the day taking micrographs (photographs through a microscope) of itty bitty powders. My co-worker and I had to get the powder out of the hazmat (short for hazardous materials) building (located in a separate building next door), go up to the third floor to weigh them, go back down to the first floor to photograph them (which in itself was a very time-consuming process dealing with double-sided tape and forceps), go back to the third floor to re-weigh them, then go back to the first floor to go back to hazmat building. We repeated this for several hours. My legs got quite a work-out from the stairs. After that, I felt super lazy. I contemplated taking a nap and running 6 miles the next day. Then I got home and thought, "But I'm meeting Ashley... Ashley who has run an Ironman, 2 marathons, a half marathon, and a 50 mile race all within 6 weeks" (I may not have those all exact, but you get the idea). That made me feel too lazy, so I decided to at least go for a three mile run. My three turned into 6 at a really great pace for me. Total time: 53:37. With the exception of waiting to cross the street around 0.3 miles, I never had to stop. All of the lights just seemed to change when I approached. It was awesome!
Mile 1: 9:02
Mile 6: 8:54
Now today I am about to get started working on those powders again today. Another butt work-out for me ( lots of stairs)!
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
