You have to wonder at times what you’re doing out there. Over the years, I’ve given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement.

Temperatures warmed up a bit this week. Thankfully. Ran 2 days during week. Tuesday was a fast 3 on treadmill and Thursday was 4.2 outside. Saturday, got outside in the rain. Not heavy, but constant for all 7 miles. It was 45 degrees, but honestly, that run didn’t feel a whole lot different than the previous weeks’ 6 miler in 17 degrees. I chose a hilly route for the 7.

Saturday night i was out with some friends. Had a blast….though the late night and drinks had me sleep in on Sunday. Whew! Fun, laughter and even some Galaga and Pinball!! Thank god i only do those nights once in a blue moon…

Could’ve run outside on Sunday…it was actually still rainy, but I decided not too. I didn’t end up running until about 5pm and elected for the treadmill. Did a good 5. I don’t always mention it, but I have been getting in 2-3 sessions of strength training per week. Feel pretty great about this…might be the strongest I have ever been. It can only help me…especially if i ever decide to take up swimming.

I love to share music , so here are some of the songs i’ve been listening to a lot lately while running:

He’s a Pirate – Hans Zimmer

Training Montage – from Rocky

Baby, I’m a Star – Prince

Ten Seconds Before Sunrise – Tiesto

Close to You – Tiesto

I Wasn’t Kidding – Angie Stone

The Black Pearl – Scotty

Sinnerman – Felix da Housecat & Nina Simone

What’s on your playlist these days?

Massage tomorrow. Can’t wait.

Train Hard. Train Smart.

that’s what i’m talkin’ about
