It comes as no surprise to any of my regular readers to hear that I like beer and I like to run. But it did bring me to the attention of someone else – The Beer Runner! Go check out my interview on his blog on Draft Magazine!!!
And for Three Things Thursday:
1. I hurt. All over. Who knew that shoveling snow could make every.single.muscle. in your body hurt? I’ve shoveled snow for a minimum of 1.5 hours every day since Saturday. On Sunday, I think I shoveled for five hours.
2. I knocked out 7 miles on the treadmill today. It may have been the hardest run I’ve ever done. Between the snow shoveling and taking the boys sledding, I was wiped. It took me the entire first mile to loosen up enough to run, as opposed to trudge along. I thought I’d stop at mile 2 for a break, but somehow kept making myself keep moving. I ended up doing all 7 at a slightly below 10 minute pace, with negative splits. Go figure.
3. Jones doesn’t go back to school until Tuesday. I love my kids, but I’ve spent way too much time with them this week. I’m going to need a vacation when this is all over.
