Oh look, I went a whole week without posting. Oops. On to the randomness!
You GUYS! My mile repeats are getting BETTER! That evil man Coach Jeff has been making me do repeats like it’s my job and, uh, it’s helping me. Damn him for always being right. A few boring numbers to run by you:
Tuesday 2/1: 7:47, 8:01, 8:20, 8:25, 8:15, 8:10.
Friday 2/4: 7:43, 7:45, 7:46, 7:46, 7:39, 7:35.
Today, 2/7: 7:38, 7:37, 7:33, 7:33, 7:30
Ummm, improvement, right?? I’m SO happy and frankly, IN AWE that anything is getting better because I hadn’t done a decent speed workout in months–and after that first set last week I was ready to hork up my own lungs. I had totally forgotten that speed work can feel good. I’m on my way back baby!
I’m a handbag slut. I had been
eying obsessing over the Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Ukita Flap bag but with a price tag of $498, uhm, yeah no.
And then last week at a Saks Off 5th Outlet I found it for $125. With an additional $25% off. You better believe I jumped all over that like my life depended on it. (Side note: I also find great satisfaction in a great deal. Double win!)
My birthday was Sunday and while I was off doing my long run Mr. Engineer was off getting supplies for mimosas and DONUTS! Om nom nom. Basically I was treated to the best refueling ever (avert your eyes, healthy eaters!) and it was a lovely start to what I am certain will be my best year yet : )
Feel free to leave me something random about you to ponder, or link to your own post!
