I Will Run For Food


Today I ran 11 miles on the dreadmill. Temps were in the high 90’s with a heat index 0f 103 degrees. So in the interest of safety, I had to stay indoors. I decided to watch Orange is the New Black on Netflix while running.I started it a few days ago and have made it through episode 4. If you’ve seen it, I found myself laughing out loud at some of the Crazy Eyes scenes.

Honestly watching TV on the iPad really made the time fly. I didn’t look at the time on the mill and I barely glanced at my watch. In fact, I thought I was running much slower than I actually was. I was trying to keep the pace down and take it easy today. Whoops.

I had my first GU since the Chicago Marathon last year. I haven’t run enough miles until today to really warrant a mid-run refuel. So cheers to double digit mileage and GU on the go.

Apparently to knock Pump out of the top spot on the Fitbit board, I just need to run 11 miles everyday. NBD. I’m sure I’ll be a solid second place again tomorrow.

Currently I am listening to my stomach eat itself. I failed epically on the grocery front. I totally forgot to stock up before my run, so I ate chickpeas for dinner. Just chickpeas. Yep, not proud of that. But running to the store would require packing up Little Mister and putting on pants. I don’t really feel like doing either at the moment. It’s too bad no one delivers ice cream in these parts. I’d pretty much cut a bitch for a cone right now :)

11.0 miles in 1:35:10. Average pace 8:39.

TL;DR I ran 11 miles. It was good. Watched Orange is the New Black. I ate GU. Ate chickpeas. I’m not wearing pants. Bring me ice cream!
