Sleep: 7 hours in bed, 915p-415a, 68% quality. Hank was being an asshole again.
Healthy Movement: Body feels great. Wearing calf sleeves. In class warm-up, the only thing that felt off was lunges, slightly stiff knees - yet squats felt great. After standing at my desk for a couple hours, knees were REALLY stiff. More movement is the solution! Started to lose all energy around 330p, and felt stiff as hell, but I knew it was also partly from spinning-in-a-meeting frustration - but I nearly canceled on Brian. Dustin's "Do it if it feels good, but be honest with yourself about how it feels" was echoing in my ears. Except, Winter looms, and I need every single second of trail love I can get, until I can't get no mo'.
The run felt tough, but it was fun anyway; just let Brian babble on about all his crazy race thoughts, and focused on keeping up. Maybe that's why I love running with him; his ideas of normal & possible have inspired the shit out of me, gotten me to do so much more running than I ever have before, and it's been wonderful. Plus all of his races sound like SO MUCH FUN to crew: beautiful nature, mountains, isolation...yes, please! I just wish I could feel capable of pacing as well. The controlled burn on the north end of the park flooded us with smoke at our finish, making it end on a shitty, cough-filled note. Blech.
Fun & Play: Productive morning. Buddy chat time. An errand knocked out for the hubs, finally. Nature & fun chitchat with my running fave.
