Going for 5000

I had to get outside today and try out my new shoes on a slog.

Plus I set my Nike FuelBand to 5000 fuel points today so I had an earn that extra 1000 points. 

I am halfway there at 2400 points. Earning 2600 points walking around at work is a cake walk for me.

I feel like I am in Seattle today with the clouds, 50 degrees and how wet it is outside. The greenbelt was so peaceful. Only a few walkers, a few men runners, 3 girl runners, some bikers, and a few others walking their dogs. It was so nice that it was basically dead compared to 2 weekends ago when the weather was warm. I didn't take my phone because I thought it would have rained on me. I didn't even take my ipod either. Just me and myself.

I did 4.74 miles with a 12:23 average pace.

Today, I really focused on my stride and how my feet land. I played around with different speeds and how I place my feet. I think that these new Brooks were easier to land on my forefoot on. But when I land on my forefoot, my speed, which I wanted to keep slow at 12:30per mile, I speed up to 10min/mi. And I feel like I use less leg muscles when I land on the front of my feet. Which felt like a better use of my power, to help conserve my muscle power. And I think that it was easier to run on my forefoot then in my Newtons. I felt like how I was landing on my feet, I felt like I was landing on my feet when I have ran barefoot. Which was comfortable and natural feeling.

One thing that wasn't too smart that I did today was go out and run right after getting up. Just ate a piece of wheat toast with HoneyPB. I didn't have any coffee. Or water. Just wake up and out the door. Yeah. Not smart. I felt pretty sluggish. Girlfriend here needs coffee.

Here is me drinking my 2nd cup of the day. As I write this. It has been a while since I have posted a crappy post-workout pic of me. :-)
How's the weather where you are today? Any green beer drinking plans for tomorrow? What was your workout today?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
