Between the leg strengthening, the mileage, and the one-hour plus of aqua jogging to supplement my mileage, my legs are like “Why tho? What did we do to you?!?” Ha.These are my weekly miles in the last 6 weeks: 11, 6, 19, 27, 31, and 34. My long run in those 6 weeks went from 3.5, 3, 4 to 12, 13, and 14. Yikes.
Phase 2 begins…now!
I have been going with a red lip more than usual in 2020, and yesterday I got a compliment about my lipstick. 99% of the time I go make-up free except for lip color, so in this area I exercise great discernment (read: I will spend). Finding the perfect red had been particularly challenging…until I went to Bite Lip Lab. I have posted about it before, but it’s been only in the past year or so that they opened a Larchmont Village location, so now it’s accessible to all my LA friends.
My strategy in this six week accelerated training cycle is to ramp up mileage for three weeks and then focus on speed for three weeks. That will give me the week of the race to rest, and then we go! Do not try this at home, kids. I am honestly just winging it. Here’s the summary of the last two weeks of Operation Hurry Up and Get the Mileage Up!
It’s not too late to give one more final List, is it? We’re only two days into 2020, so here you go. I’ll say this: I have an eclectic list. Here we go then. The Decade of Books.
This past weekend I took my buddy and board member out to lunch to thank him for helping me with the scholarship selection process. Thanks to social media, I’ve been able to connect with some awesome people who I would not normally be in spaces with – and Wells is one of them.
I was listening to a podcast yesterday, and Chadwick Boseman’s name came up, and I thought about how he had my favorite/most memorable outfit (guy edition) of the decade. It was not technically a suit but a Versace jacket ensemble that he wore for his opening monologue on SNL. His stylist is a young woman named Ashley Weston, and I love her choices for him. He is always interesting.
