Whacked Out Wednesday

So my running schedule has been pretty full this week.
I finished a lovely night run with friends Daniel and Megan on Monday.
I met up with Daniel again last night to run, and boy did we choose a HARD run.
Pretty much all uphill in direct sunlight (never a good idea in Georgia weather).
Lesson learned: never let me and Daniel improvise a route.

I knocked out a 4 mile tempo run this morning.
I felt pretty good when I got home. I made some breakfast and took a shower.
However, I completely crashed afterward.
I'm not usually a napper, but I flopped onto my bed and completely passed out.

I still feel kind of fever-y and my shins kind of ache, but I'm going to take some ibuprofen and hope I start feeling a little more, I don't know, alive. 

How's everyone else's Wednesday going?

Family Resemblance

So I had a lovely time in Atlanta this weekend! We went to Little Five Points, which is a great part of the city.
Courtney was the late one on this occasion, which is funny because she lives in Atlanta! (But the trains were being worked on, so it's not her fault.)

It still boggles my mind that I can look at her and see the resemblance. Just something I'm not used to.

But we met up and glanced through a couple of stores (like Junkman's Daughter) and then went off to eat at the Flying Biscuit.

I had an AMAZING hummus wrap and we got a dozen of their flying biscuits to go (which is basically all I ate on Sunday).

But my long run Saturday was a bit of a struggle because I accidentally slept in, so it was really hot outside by the time I got out there. That's ok though. I redeemed myself with a bike ride and strength training yesterday.

 I knocked out another 5 mile long speed play this morning, and will hopefully be meeting up with some friends tonight to knock out a relaxed run. I hope everyone else is having a good Monday!
