These kinds of runs are not only a really good workout for your legs (you're plenty warmed up before you really start hitting the speed) but they're also a really good mental workout. They teach you to dig deep and continue to get faster when you're already getting tired. You know, sort of like holding pace during the last 6 miles of a marathon when the going gets REALLY tough?
Anyway, the actual run was closer to 6 warm up, 3 @ 7:03, 3 @ 6:35, 1 @ 6:19. Things were getting a little rough towards the end, but I am SO glad that I finished it out. Things really seemed to be clicking today. Just like in golf, not all runs are good ones, but I get just enough good ones to keep on plugging away. Boy, I needed a good one today.
Recently, I was talking to a good friend about how people are just "that guy/gal". They post a million pictures of ONE THING: Their kid, the food they eat,
Yesterday, I wanted to replace the wallpaper on my phone with an updated picture. Little did I know that getting a picture of my son was going to be a 10 minute ordeal. Below are a series of pictures in the same order as they were taken and what I assume my son was thinking while I was snapping.
Awwww dad, SERIOUSLY? Another picture!?!?
Ok, I'm going to sit still for like 2 nanoseconds and then.....
Yay fun phone camera! Gimmie gimmie gimmie!!
Oh look! Something over here that I need to touch and maybe put in my mouth
You want what? You want me to look at you? Ok, fine. I'm right HERE!!!!
[Editors note: I'm not even sure what this little devilish smile is for....]
Yeah, if you want a good picture, you're going to have to corral me and hold on tight.
Shortly after that picture was taken, he proceeded to continue running around the house like is hair was on fire dragging his toy popper. Make no mistake, being a 14 month old would be sweeeeet.
