1) i ran 8 miles. and ran one hour of the consecutively. and at the end of that hour i felt good but walked a minute to prep for the last two.
2) i wore so-called booty shorts on this 8 mile run. i put booty shorts and sports bra running in the same group not because i don’t like when people wear them, i just never thought i would have the confidence to do so. i bought a pair saturday and wore them on sunday. and loved them. of course they’re lululemon and the fit is awesome. if i had a million dollars i would just wear lululemon all the time.
yep, that’s actually me modeling those shorts. didn’t know i was moonlighting as a fitness model did ‘ya?
so running for 8 miles is a little long. not like i want to die from exercise just time-consuming long. so i’ve had to boost up my itunes collection to keep me motivated.
here’s what is keeping me moving now:
not afraid – eminmen (this has been awesome for my long runs! a bit explicit for those with sensitive ears)
suddenly i see – kt tunstall
whipped into shape – legally blonde the musical (quite motivating, don’t judge)
paint it black – rolling stones
girls – beastie boys
blister in the sun – violent femmes
no scrubs – tlc
survivor – destinys child
run around – blues travelers
pump it – black-eyed peas
sober – pink
if anyone has super motivating songs i would love to hear ’em. long runs are just getting longer . . .
