Freshen Up

Happy hump day, Leap Day, Wed-nes-day, National surf ‘n’ turf Day!

And monsoon day. I’m glad I got in my run yesterday because it’s monsooning here (apparently the word monsoon cannot be used as a verb. Spellcheck suggested moonshining).

I ran a swift 8 miles yesterday. I expected my legs to feel better than they did considering I took 2 days off. I guess my speed intervals over the weekend threw them for a loop! They felt heavy at first, but woke up at around the 3 mile mark. I’m going to take another couple days off from running, so my legs can freshen up.

…and those are the only 2 photos I’ve taken this week. I’ve been neglecting my camera big time lately. It’s okay, I’ll leave you with some links I’ve been meaning to share with you all for ages.

From Runner’s World: 101 Kicks in the Butt—Tips to Get You Motivated to Run

From Improvephotography.com: 13 Things Your Camera Wishes You Knew

From Greatist: The Complete Guide to Workout Nutrition [Infographic]. A great summary of how to fuel for your workouts.

My mom emailed me this Linsanity Song (video) she found while filling out Jeremy’s adoption papers. It’s quite entertaining!

That’s all I’ve got. Have a wonderful hump day, Leap Day, Wed-nes-day, National surf ‘n’ turf Day!

It’s pouring in Baltimore, too, so I’m avoiding going outside at all costs! Luckily, I’m stuck at the office all day!

Awesome run! I’m going to take the day off from running today and hopefully by legs will be swift for my next run, too :)
