Couch:

Sleeping and Watching TV

… Sick Problems.

 

This is my 50th post! YAY!

Too bad I spent my day sick, hacking up a storm, and on the couch resting and watching TV.

Lela brought me some sickie stuff! I love her!

This face just STARED at me all day. Apparently I'm not fun when I'm sick.

This is why I love chocolate. It's so wise!

Today besides sitting on the couch, I sat on the porch. And while I sat on the porch, I taught myself how to sing the alphabet backwards. I’m pretty cool, I know.

That just happened.

And so, to pass the time, enjoy some photobombs on the Photobomb Friday! There’s only a few, so really savor them.

Adorable Photobomb.

This just cracks me up.

Okay, and that’s about it.

Run on.

 

Morning Run:

4.5mi

Weights:

Afternoon Run:

7 mi

2 mi walk

Okay guys. I am SO sorry I have been vacant the past two days! Wednesday I wasn’t feeling good. AT ALL. Constrained-to-my-bed not feeling good. Thursday was cheer tryouts, so we were helping with that past 9 o’clock at night! So there honestly wasn’t any time to run!

Now that you have heard my lame excuses reasons as to why I couldn’t possibly go run, it is time to talk about TODAY. As you can see in the above daily workout section, it was quite the workout day for me.

On Wednesday night, I got some really awesome pink Brooks PureFlow shoes!

YAYYY NEW SHOES!

YAYYY NEW SHOES!

 

I have people ask me all the time, “How many pairs of running shoes do you have?!”

Well, I have a TON. But I only rotate between my three pairs of Brooks! I’m in love. 🙂

This morning was the first time I got to run in them! I ran with Lela on the running path and we chatted it out as best friends do!

Good ol' carpet running path.

Good ol’ carpet running path.

Before I even went into weights, I was warned the weights was awful and I was going to die. I think I’m still doing ok. Breathing, at least.

We started out with our warmup. Then we did a 10 minute jog/stride tempo run. Easy peasy. That was my favorite part! Other kids looked like they wanted to punch coach in the face.

When we got back in the weight room, we went on 60 second buzzers with 30 second rest buzzers. On platforms we did 60 second, 1/2 max weight, max rep intervals for front squat. If you weren’t squatting it out, you had to go do agility ladders. Which I am awful at because I have zero coordination.

In racks, we were doing the same thing but with bench press. We didn’t do the agility ladders during bench!

I didn’t think it was awful, although I was drenched in sweat by the time we were done!

Gotta watch some March Madness during class… pretty awesome.

Fast-forward to tonight’s run.

Before I left the house, I opened a new package of PRO Compression socks! Purple and lime green. So legit!

I went to Miranda’s house and picked her up! She is my brother’s girlfriend/ my running partner.

She had my brother’s dog (who got sprayed by a skunk last night. EW.) and I had Keena Marie!

As we were running our 7, the dogs thought it would be fun to keep trading places so the leashes were criss-crossed! Example from my point of view:

Pretty great. Photobomb by Mir!

View from Miranda's phone! Photobomb by me!

And then we got the brilliant idea to take pictures of each other while running…

Aw she's just so purrdy.

Aw she’s just so purrdy.

View from Mirda's phone.. I'm not so purrdy.

As we ran we talked our little hearts out and just couldn’t get over how beautiful it was outside!

Oh, did I mention we are going to get 3-5 inches of SNOW tomorrow?! That would be Kansas for you.

We will be treadmillin’ it up tomorrow it looks like!

Keena is relieved. That mean's she doesn't have to do anything!

I am currently hanging out with my chipmunk faced boyfriend. He had his wisdom teeth taken out today, and I have a few pictures I COULD post on here of his chubby cheeks… but I have a feeling that if I did that, I wouldn’t have a boy that’s my friend anymore. And I kinda like this one. A tad. You know, only been together for 3.5 years. Or something.

But I will post this picture of him…

He's playing video game while I blog. Very romantic.

He’s playing online with a bunch of people who have really big potty mouths. I don’t like it. Don’t worry, mom, he’s not the one who needs his mouth washed out with soap!

Okay, I hope my workout-filled day makes up for the two days I missed! Also, I won’t be posting a Photobomb Friday this week! There’s a lot of Fridays, and there are only so many photobombs I can post!

Well, see you guys tomorrow!

Run on.

Road/ Trail Run:

7 miles of pure awesomeness.

Today is our last day in the beautiful Nevada. Okay, well the beautiful mountain part of Nevada. Not the hot desert part.

Today I wanted to take a different route; I wanted to see where the trail actually started. I looked at a map…

"I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'M THE MAP!" *Name that kid's show!

“I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map, I’M THE MAP!” *Name that kid’s show!*

… and I found that the other trailhead was 2 miles away from where we are staying! So I hit the road…

"I'm the road, I'm the road, I'm the road, I'm the road, I'M THE ROAD!" *Not in a kid's show*

“I’m the road, I’m the road, I’m the road, I’m the road, I’M THE ROAD!” *Not in a kid’s show*

 

… and ran the two miles through the beautiful valley! Said “Hello!” to some horses, baby calves, baby sheep, and a llama. Yep. A llama.

When I got to the trailhead, it informed me that I was running on a historical landmark. SCORE!

You go, Martin Luther.

You go, Martin Luther.

There are just so many more trail options at this trailhead! I can’t believe I have never tried it before! I could’ve gone exploring! Oh well. There will be more trips to Nevada!

I ran up to a different trail called “Lonesome Trail.” Lonesome connected to Jobs Peak (the trail that gets me home), so I thought running it would get me some extra mileage!

It's lonesome out here... on Lonesome Trail...

It’s lonesome out here… on Lonesome Trail…

 

At around mile 5, a stray dog started runnin’ with me. That’s cool and all, but he had an owner because he had a collar on. Every time I would try and look at his tags, he would run away from me, but then come right back as soon as I started running again. What?

"Hey guys! I found Fido! I found Fido you guys!" *Name that YouTube video*

“Hey guys! I found Fido! I found Fido you guys!” *Name that YouTube video*

He finally ditched me at mile 6.

Today on my run, I was supporting my Team In Training Kansas Chapter training jersey, my UnderArmour tights, my short PRO Compression socks, and my BrooksRunning Pure Cadence shoes!

Sorry for the ugly-sweaty face. I know it's attractive.

"Booty booty booty booty rockin' in a well!" *Name that hilarious YouTube video*

And guess what guys! It’s PhotoBomb Friday!!!!!!!!

I’m still accepting photobombs, so make sure you send them to runningsmallrs@gmail.com!

Until then,

Run on.

Roads:

5 mi – 45 min – 9 min pace

Thank the Lord for no school today! What what!

So I had to get my hurrr done because I haven’t had it done since say… November.

One of the worst parts about being a girl is that getting your hair done takes FOREVER. Especially if you dye it. Hello two hour appointments… -_-

I didn't think I could pull off this really awesome George Washington, tin foil style. But now looking at it... man. That pink tin foil really says, "I'm making a statement."

And hey look! I'm blonde... still.

And hey look! I’m blonde… still.

So today’s run consisted of me running into the wind for a solid mile and a half! It was awful. By the time I got done with that horrendous 1.5, I was breathing SO hard it may have added another mph to the wind.

Whoop whoop.

I did get some awesome wrestling boys all hanging out the window of their truck as I ran by cheering for me! That made my day, thanks guys! 🙂

Anyways, as promised, it IS Photobomb Friday, so enjoy!
