Okay, these are hilarious as race photos tend to be… I love that they never catch me doing anything normal. Please also note that my running clothes match. Please know that this is a complete aberration. My method for choosing a workout “outfit” includes: step outside to determine weather, reach into appropriate bin (long, short or no sleeves), grab the first thing I find, reach into shorts bin, grab what’s on top, put on body. So, the fact that I match makes me laugh. These photos are actually useful though– I’m working on relaxing my arms and trying to quit looking like a T-Rex while I run. I thought I was doing better but apparently not!
In the first 2 I was showing my friend how to look “hardcore” while running… apparently “look hardcore” translates into “look ridiculous.” I’m just sad the photographers didn’t catch us together :(Training update: went back to my old friend le track this morning for the last dreaded 4×1000 workout. Whereas before this workout made me want to cry, this morning I actually felt like I had a handle on the beast. I could have been a little bit more consistent but overall I was happy with how I did. Next week I move to a new training phase and so my workouts will also change. Looking forward to it!
