The Fairest Week In Review: 8/25

JENN: So how’s your running been going?

MOON: Steady, can’t complain. Although I need something new to listen to. I get so bored.

JENN: Still enjoying the treadmill?

MOON: I am, except the boredom part.

JENN: You should’ve come to Orlando with me last week! I mean, the treadmill was just as boring but there was fruit-infused water every day. I mean, it was Florida so it was humid even inside the gym (and don’t even get me started about outside; the 5K was NOT cool), but that infused water was really awesome. I should start doing that.

MOON: Ha, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of this, but since you bring up infused water… How about asparagus water? Don’t be this decadent. 😉

JENN: Haha, I’ll try not to.

MOON: How are the new Nikes settling in?

JENN: Pretty well… no complaints yet. I think they’ll carry me through my fall races just fine (although I’ll probably need another pair).

MOON: If only you ran professionally. Those shoes could be a tax deduction.

JENN: Indeed.

And with that, I take you to the roundup.

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/25

MOON: How was your weeeeeeek?!

JENN: Not baaaaad.

BAAAAAA!

MOON: (I love typing with hyperbole!)

JENN: Haha, good. How was Florida?

MOON: Florida was nice, but my goodness was I reminded of the treacherous humid conditions

JENN: That sounds lovely. We haven’t even broken 70 degrees here yet (fingers crossed for Thursday!).

Did you get a run in?

MOON: I did! We ran three times! Besides almost being run over a few times, it was a nice place to run!

JENN: Haha, where were you running?

MOON: Sarasota, a main drag somewhereee.

JENN: So like a road? No beach?

MOON: The beach a little, but I always get shoes full of sand. >_>… Mostly the road.

JENN: Ah, well. At least it was warm!

MOON: Yes! How was your week?

JENN: Not bad. I actually did some speed work and it didn’t suck as hard as I thought it would. Mind you, I wasn’t going REALLY fast for REALLY long, but I topped out at 7.5 mph and that’s a hell of a lot speedier than usual.

Okay, so, maybe the readers can tell me if I’m doing it wrong: I did 5 minutes at 5.5, then 1 minute each at 7.5, 7, 6.5, and then 2 minutes at 6 mph. Repeat that ten minute set three times, ten minutes again at 5.5 to cool down, and done. Yes? Is that right? SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME IF I SUCK AT THIS.

MOON: Nice! Ha, this week I tried to tell myself it was okay to not go faster. XD

JENN: I tell myself that all the time. It’s basically my rallying cry.

Here, talk to some people who are all no doubt faster than me. ROUNDUP!

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/17

JENN: HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY! (And Wine & Dine registration day!)

MOON: Yay for the Patron Saint of Ireland!

JENN: Unfortunately, the holiday does mean I’ll probably fall short of my running goals this week as I won’t be able to block out large enough chunks of time for my usual long runs.

On the positive side, the reason for this is twofold: my boyfriend is playing bass in the St. Patty’s Day celebration bar band, and then on Friday I’m going to a party where they have a dog. So, good times, at least!

MOON: Oh, that’s nice!! I’ll be on my way to Florida, so I suppose no partaking in festivities for me, but on that note: WARMTHHH.

JENN: Oooh, what are you doing in Florida without me???

MOON: Don’t worry, I’ll be on the west coast of Florida not standing in front of Disney Things. I’m off to enjoy the weather and spend a few days with the boyfriend chillin’ by the pool (ocean), relaxin’ all cool.

JENN: Just make sure to steer clear of the couple of guys who are up to no good.

Did you run at all last week?

MOON: I did!! And I’m excited to do some running in the warm weather… Christian and I must get ready for the Cherry Blossom run!

JENN: Indeed! You’re totally gonna smoke me. I managed to cram in a little over 29 miles this week, just shy of my weekly goal, but I know I’m gonna fall short this week unless by some miracle I feel REALLY REALLY GOOD during my Thursday run.

MOON: Ehh, I’ve been taking a while to get back on track after being sick. I’m sure we’ll be pushing each other on. 🙂

JENN: Eh, well, I’ll be slacking by 5-10 miles this week, so maybe we’re even!
