I Wanted To Run. And So, I Did

Today, I planned on running after my 2 week break.

I wanted to run.

And so, I did.

I only planned on doing a 5K on the TM.

30 minutes on the TM is usually my limit. That's where I am about to scream and throw the machine out the window. And the whole time I am playing with my speed. Up and down, nothing constant. But today, at a couple of points I kicked that baby up to 7.5. I went as low as 2.0 to twitter on my phone and drink water, but kept it mostly around 5.0. Super easy.

My view of the TM

If you are a twitter follower, sorry about the treadmill live tweeting. I couldn't help it!

I felt so freaking good. I had downloaded a few Bassnectar songs and fell in love with Ping Pong. I wound up listening to the song on repeat for 2 freakin hours!

I highly recommend the song on your workout or running itunes playlist. Really!

So anyways, 3 miles somehow became 10. I didn't take anything with me other then water, so I was a little scared to do 3 more miles for a TM half marathon without a gel or anything to help recover immediately after.

Post-run potty shot.
My shirt said Run, and so I did. I missed it for the last 2 weeks, but today sure felt good.

What was your run or workout this weekend? Do you ever add on miles because you feel so good? What songs on your playlist do you recommend I add?


  1. If I had a Woodway TM I would have run 10 miles too. They are the best!!!! My coach has one so every once in a while I get to run on it.

    1. The woodways are insanely nice. I'm asking for one for xmas!

    1. Thank you! It felt good to run after 2 weeks off.

    2. What a run!! I've never attempted to run 10 miles on the treadmill before, but I bet if felt great after some time off. Way to go!!

    3. that bassnectar song is magic on repeat. it totally made 10 miles seem like 1 on the tm. otherwise i would have just been done at 3.

  3. 10 Miles!! Way to come back from a break girl! :)

Twin Falls Love Locks

During the Rim to Rim race a few weeks ago, I noticed something cool.

Someone started up a Love Locks overlooking the canyon! I told the BF about it - we always put up locks on places that seem fitting - but we never got around to doing our own lock in Twin Falls until I noticed this Twitter from ThisIsBoise.

If you follow the link that ThisIsBoise posted - it is a GIVEAWAY to those who put a love lock on the fence overlooking the canyon! Ok! I HAD to do this with the BF!

The BF got a lock and put our initials and other symbols important to us on it.

If you park where the new visitor center is, walk away from the bridge along the canyon path. 

Ooh look. There is it. 

 Our innitals, a bunny on the front and back of the lock, and Hoppity on this side of the lock.

I think our lock has a pretty good view of the canyon! 

If you are in the Twin Falls area, or are passing through this month with a love, you can enter the Love Locks giveaway here.

Have you and a sweetie ever put up a love…
