I've been told that I have eccentric running habits.
Stuff like avoiding runs over 7 miles, never following a training plan, wearing rabbit ears to the Boston marathon...ya know...the usual....
To keep the eccentricity going, here's a game I'd like to introduce to the blogging world...
THE TREADMILL SPEED GAME O' DEATH!!!
Ok fine...it's more like a tempo run...here are the rules:
After a mile warmup, you start your treadmill at goal half marathon pace. Each mile, you increase speed .1 MPH. The goal is to stay on the treadmill as long as possible (until you're 90% spent...I'm not trying to recommend overtraining here!).
So for example, if your GHMP is 8:30 it would be:
|Uncombed hair o' death|
I made it to 5.15 miles today starting at GHMP of 7:24 (8.1 mph) for mile 1. And because I stupidly drank chocolate milk before the run, I was cramped up until mile 4.
Chocolate milk is so delicious though I'm pretty sure it was still worth it!
One thing...if you play the TSGOD, be prepared for bad hair.....or maybe that's just me...?
So after that informative training segment, I gotta tell you about the second half of my day.
I work for REVOLVEClothing.com, a fashion retailer, and it was my brother's birthday today. He's a co-owner of the company. This led to my intern asking me if it was true that people as old as me just stopped counting birthdays...(if you're reading this, Lyn, sorry ...I had to blog this...).
For birthdays at work, we generally pass around a card and get cake.
But my brother is the much loved El Jefe so he got subdued celebration...you know...just a few things....a...

What did you do last birthday? Did you have a Mariachi Band?
I did very little last birthday...just went to eat with family...this year's going to be EPIC though!!
Does anyone want to try the treadmill speed workout o' death with me????
You know you want to....
