Run As One – Add It To The List!

Soooo, if you saw it/got an email, I totally didn’t mean to publish that last uncompleted post. Accidentally clicked the publish button a litttttle too early. #blogproblems

Rookie mistake. Sorry! So, where was I?

I can’t believe I almost forgot to tell you all…

I signed up for another race last week! It’s just a 4 miler, nothing too crazy. But I love running in Central Park, and it’s my first official 4 mile race, so, automatic PR? I welcome all of your strategy tips and tricks. Anyone else running this one?

As for yesterday…have you been dying to know how my interview went? I thought so.

I think it went pretty well! I like that they asked me a lot of “what would you do in this situation” questions rather than the not-exciting, straight -out “what are your strengths and weaknesses” questions. Plus, they were very nice and I could totally see myself working well with the supervisors. Naturally I spent all afternoon pondering what I said vs what I should have said, but they said they are looking to move pretty quickly so hopefully I will know for sure soon. Post-interview, I met a friend for lunch (who I haven’t seen FOR.EV.ER. and then finished the day at FlyWheel. Didn’t totally love the teacher/music but I was sweaty and happy and wearing my new neon yellow Under Armour tank so it all worked out. I was not prepared for the walk home, though. The city was a little chilly last night!

Overall, fabulous day.

I have a tempo run on schedule today but I’m still debating – I feel like my knees want some rest and am tempted to wait until tomorrow when my body feels stronger. Stay tuned! Funny training story, though: I was playing around with the Runner’s World SmartCoach app last night, just looking at the different options they suggest, and this came up:

Isn't that nice to see? "Sorry, you're just too fast".

Obviously it was a mistake. But stilllllll!

I’ll leave you with this photo my Dad sent me from his trip to Chicago. How pretty!
