Okay back story- Tuesday night I stupidly left the windows to my car open…it then proceeded to storm all night and down pour, at 5am I woke up in thoughts “Oh I have to shut the windows in my ROOM”…while shutting the windows in my room I then remember oh CRAPOLA i left my car windows open….aka my car has an awful smell and still has damp seats 2 days later….
Yesterday I really struggled with my run. We had done tons of legs on Tuesday and my legs were surely feeling it yesterday. I seriously hated all 3 miles that I ran yesterday….legit…hated. Every step I took I could feel my sore muscles…no bueno.
However today when I ran was great! I did 3 miles at a normal pace then the last two with 6:50 intervals (.25, .75, .25, .70). Ended in 37 minutes and it felt great! I was pooped after that and I knew I still had SIM at 530…so I chilled the rest of the afternoon.
Oh side note- I decided to run today because I figured “oh we did conditioning at sim yesterday we won’t do it again today….” Um…. I was wrong.

Oh also to make this a public goal- I want to bump up to 26 miles this week!!
I don’t know if you guys are Harry Potter fans like myself…(fan = understatement). But JK Rowling had been teasing us with an announcement for the past couple days and she FINALLY TOLD US!!!

Side note- My bad ass friend Jim (James) Wilkes needs your support!
He is currently doing 4 events in 19 days, with the Tinman Triathlon (70.3) happening Saturday; and ending with the Providence 70.3 on July 10th, and then he will be only two events away from completing every major endurance distance event in regards triathlon and running when the 3 remaining events are complete, then it’s on to the culminating Ironman distance triathlon on September 11; which is the eight year anniversary of when he was struck by the grenade in Iraq. Jim is such an inspiration and a hilarious man! If any of you follow my tumblr he leaves me random little anon messages typically in rhyming form hahah. So please go help support him and donate to the charity he’s raising money for!!
JANAE’S GIVE AWAY!!! AHHH
