Alright time to re-cap this weekends miles/workouts. If you follow my on instagram this will be a repeat - if you don't and want to find me, it is @missmel_joy. I am an IG addict and I love it.
Friday - yeah... I ate Mexican with my girl and then came home and relaxed. I was tired from the week and from being sick. So... NADA! Off Day...
Saturday - I woke up early and headed to Cliff Cave Park to run with my girl Laura. We ran 5 miles at a 9:42 pace. It was a nice run, but I was struggling with the breathing with my cough and all. I then went straight to Fleet Feet to get some new running shoes. I wanted to "try" something different, so she brought out some Saucony's for me to try, and I ran in them for a bit.. Yeah... NOPE... I love me some Brooks and have realized I am a "true and through" Brooks girl. I ended up with the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13. I also snagged myself some new socks and this adorable pink Nike pull-over. Love them all and even the shoes are cute...
Then I decided to watch some Mizzou hoops in the afternoon - yeah sorry... but they were getting KILLED by Florida - so I laced up again to try out my new shoes. I AM one of those people who wear the shirt I bought THAT day. Deal with it... I did a quick wardrobe change, put on my new socks/new shoes and out the door I went. Ran 3 miles at 9:43 pace then walked 1.5 miles for a cool down.
That evening I couldn't WAIT to watch the Blues play some Hockey. I REALLY REALLY REALLY missed that sport. All you peeps who like to say "who cares about hockey" or "there are two kinds of people here - those who love hockey and those who don't give a f" - YOU don't have a team in your city... TRUST ME - if you did or you do and don't like - you are CRAZY... Now THAT is a sport - get your booty out there and skate for 3 periods, with a stick, while you knock the crap out of each other. COME ON... Don't be hatin... Jealous much??? BTW... Welcome Tarasenko - way to make an entrance.... Yes we won 6-0 over Detroit.
Sunday - Got up early and worked out some whole body strength training, with hitting my legs HARD. Wes made an appearance.. I have some projects going on around the house (will post when finished) - so continued with those . I then decided to hit up a "trail" run. The kind of run where you run on gravel and hope you don't bust your booty on the down slopes. LOL... Well it was HARD - the hills were KILLER and I was huffing and puffing like a mad woman. BUT... I made it... 4 miles 10:23 pace. I slowed up big time with this type of run... but I loved the change of scenery - so I will keep at it.
I won't recap the games for you but both my picks are in the Superbowl - so yeah for the 49ers and the Ravens. Kyra we RULE!!!! I am picking 9ers - cause I want to... Your pick?
Okay this post is getting winded... so last thing and most importantly, if you haven't heard, Stan Musial passed away on Saturday evening at the age of 92. If you want to read more about it and the wonderful man he truly was - there is an outstanding article in the St. Louis Post Dispatch from Sunday. I am an article keeper - so I here it is (the image)... It's going in my "article" box. Want to read more - read it HERE.
Alright there you have it my miles, wins, and losses (The Man). I hope you all have a great Monday and hope to see you tomorrow for the link-up.
