I’m rolling, rolling, rolling and happy…except for the cinnamon and cloves.

Sooooo…I’m still in recovery mode and trying to accept the mud that seems to be permanently stuck under my toenails from Sunday’s frolic in mud. I will be happy, however, when my legs stop looking like I had a run-in with Tonya Harding.

I took Monday off from running and then yesterday was team practice – the dreaded 1 mile rolling hills repeat x 4. HOWEVER, since I’m still coughing up a lung, coach suggested I just do continuous repeats of the 1 mile loop – so done at a slightly lower intensity and without the 3 minute recovery between miles. I really didn’t think that it would be any less painful, but surprisingly it was an awesome workout! 9 miles total with warm-up and cool-down.

The continuous nature of it allowed me to get in a groove and my average pace was 7:05min/mile (4:24min/km) and when I do this workout with the recovery, it’s more like a 6:30min/mile pace…so I was pretty impressed with myself – as you can see by my sweaty selfie! lol

The rolling hills look so small on here! lol

Warm-up and cool-down portions are obvious…my heart was working well up and down the hills.

When I got home, I just flaked out on the couch…and of course I wasn’t alone.

I had trouble sleeping last night because of my cough and so I finally got up at around 1am and took some poison cough medicine (it’s flavored with orange, cinnamon and cloves – WHY??). When I got back to bed (like 2 minutes later) this is what I found

Really, Abby?? lol

Happy Wednesday!
