Adventures in pink

My Friday was wonderful, because it involved lots of running. There were also lots of yummy sushi involved.

After classes, I went for a nice 7.1 mile run at a 9:46/mile pace. It was pretty uneventful. I didn't want to tire my legs out too much before my long run tomorrow, but I wanted to get some quality mileage in. 

Then I finally held  a minute Plank. 
I promise I actually did the plank. I realize that a screenshot of a stopwatch doesn't prove anything. 
I thought that was going to be it for the day. I mean, a minute Plank and a 7 miler is more than I could have hoped to accomplish.

But then the bf said that he was going for a four miler at night. And I couldn't pass up a chance to go for a super easy run of 4 miles at 10:45/mile. So I threw all caution of overtraining to the wind and went running again. 
In a super bright outfit so that cars would see me. 
Even though my legs are sore and I might have to move my long run to Sunday, I'm ecstatic that I went.

We made it sort of an adventure run. 

We jumped some fences to get to a part of a trail along the lake.  * Aside - I think Stefan has a real career in butt modeling*
We soon found out why portion of the trail was closed. It wasn't that the trails weren't maintained, it was that they were working on the steps and it was missing a flight.
Who does that? Why would you take out a section of stairs? 
And because we only had my phone, I got a super weird blurry photo jumping down.
Pink ghost will haunt you if you don't get your run in. 
I hope your Friday was as full of running as mine was! Good luck on your runs during the weekend! Feel free to admonish me for running too much, I sort of deserve it. Do you ever do a workout, knowing that resting will probably do you more good? 


  1. looked like you had a great who cares?)

    Love the pink!

  2. Love the outfit, you should keep that as an option for the relay! We would definitely be able to notice you!

    You should get Stefan some real running clothes.

    1. Haha. I should. But what do boys wear? He'd never wear running tights.

    2. Mike has some pants, they aren't really baggy but they are made of wicking fabric. I would just be worried about chafing with cotton sweatpants!

    3. True. I will definitely look into wicking fabric men's running pants.

  3. that colour pink is actually one of my favourite colours...was one of my wedding colours! nice job on getting two runs in!

    1. That's cool that pink was part of your wedding color!

  4. You crack me up! You're so fast you are just a pink blur!

  5. I would never turn down a second run either. Good job. :)
