First Things First:
1) If you haven't entered the Bachelorette giveaway with your picks yet, do it before 8 PM EST.
2) I did a guest post at Happy Healthy Runner: Check it out! Rachael (writer of Happy Healthy Runner) is an awesome runner, a great writer, and even better, is a Texan. =)
This is a guilt post. Because I looked at my blog today and saw the last post was from Thursday!
I've got a good excuse though. Anthony was down here for the weekend. I hate writing rushed posts, but here's a quick report :
I did some repeat miles. 4 miles. 1% incline. 3.5 minutes rest. 6:50, 6:40, 6:31, 6:28. I'm getting better and now run on the treadmill at 1% incline rather than .5% incline. .
I felt like a total poser when I realized that .5% incline is a total joke according to this chart:
Here's what incline you should run. Apparently.
Besides that, I did a lot of this - this weekend:
That right beer is the North Coast Scrimshaw. Anthony's favorite. I got some sort of more girlie wheat beer which was good too. The top one is some random Greek Beer, Hillas. As sad as it makes me to say it, I've never had a Greek beer I was crazy about. To me, it's all about the Corona lights and the Wheats.
We also walked around Long Beach and saw this:
The Queen Mary. I don't know the story exactly, but I think it's just a boat you can tour that never leaves the harbor. Kind of sad for a boat.
I also just bought a duvet online. Why? Because I have a low quality comforter that has been getting feathers everywhere. It's not uncommon for me to go to work and look down and see a giant chicken feather on my pants. While I'm ok with being this cheap, Anthony is not, so I took the plunge.
Overstock.com, you are a relationship saver.
Has anyone else ever had this duvet-feather problem? ;-)
And what treadmill incline do you run on? What simulates outside best?
