|super excited to go run around in the humidity instead of going to bed|
It was weird running for time and actually kind of pleasant. I tried to stay in my easy pace but I started to feel pretty good after 20 minutes and ramped up to about a 7:20 minute mile pace. That didn't last too long though - I think it had more to do with Taylor Swift than anything else.
Now Taylor Swift isn't really country anymore, but a couple of her songs were on a country Spotify playlist. I really like country music and lately I've started to run to it. I find it especially good for long easy runs. I usually just pick one of Spotify's more upbeat country lists (I like the Tailgate one a lot) and treat it like the radio but I just cannot stand Blake Shelton's Doin What She Likes. Can we just take a moment to focus on the first verse? Who is this moron?
She likes it when I call in sick to work
Spend the whole day hanging with her
I might get fired but that's alright
I'm doin' what she likes
You know what I like? When my boyfriend goes to work and closes serious deals and then calls me to tell me how he fucking owned his job today. But I do like fajitas and margaritas so this woman isn't a complete moron I guess. Anyway, I digress.
So the first day of half marathon training was a success.
You know what else we a success? CrossFit. (You didn't seriously think you'd get out of hearing about my morning workout did you?)

Reps do not have to be consecutive. If you do not complete the designated amount of reps for that minute, start back at the beginning (1 rep, then 2 reps on the following minute, etc.) until 15 minutes have passed.
