I had planned to do my scheduled 20 minute interval run on the treadmill today but by the time I got around to it, I was STARVING because I hadn't yet had breakfast, my left glute that I pulled a couple weeks ago was talking to me, I had a little bit of DOMS because I did a leg workout yesterday even after my dad told me not to (Sorry, Dad!) and I could find no clean socks.
But I told myself "Self...none of that really matters if you put your mind to it...AND... if Birthday Girl Jen can run BAREFOOT outside, then surely you can run without socks. They are Nike Frees afterall...so be free of your socks!"
I had my best HIIT run since starting back last month. I added .31 (THAT's almost a third of a mile people!!! :-) to my 20 minute run since I started running again. I started my warm-up at 5.5mph and hit 8mph for my high point minute at the end. Hooah!!
...and no issues by going sockless.
As I was cooking breakfast and channeling out my own James Brown...
...Steve laughed and said "Eating healthy, not drinking booze, and running is making you feel good? Go figure!"
Then I received this in my e-mail from a local trainer here in the Portland/Vancouver area and if you've got about 30 minutes to spare, you might listen to her talk about her top 10 ideas you might think about following this new year. I like them all.
