I’ve written a bit about 10:10 Wellness before: it’s a small athletic goods company that makes a GREAT homemade recovery drink called the “Monkey Shake:”
I like going through their closeouts to look for deals. I just placed an order for a lot of Powerbars, Gels, and a sweet 6 bottle Fuel Belt:
The fuel belt was on closeout, and it was only $20! Pharmie’s excited to use it when she’s running at her parents in the middle of nowhere.
Here’s the NEW news: If you go to 10:10 Wellness, you can use the coupon code "steveinaspeedo" (without the quotes) to get 10% off ANYTHING that you get from their site - clothing, accessories, Monkey, anything!! So check out 10:10 Wellness and see if you can find a deal. (If you’ll remember, they offered a 2 week special with that coupon code about a month ago, but now it’s a PERMANENT deal!!)
And on the running front, I did my long run for the week this morning: 8 miles. My heel felt GOOD, and that got me thinking. I always bitch when it’s hurting or injured, but I rarely say how lucky I feel when it feels good. So I’m not taking it for granted today! If you are training injury-free, take a moment to give thanks!! If you’re injured right now, what can you be doing to get better?
I ran the 8 miler hard, and hit the 4 mile turn-around in 25:12, and I made it back home in another 23:46, for a total of 48:58 over 8 miles (6:07 / mile average). I eased into the run the first few miles by running 6:35 - 6:25 miles, and I finished with 2 sub-6:00 miles (I ran the last mile, which includes 2 little uphill segments, in 5:45). I’m still SHOOTING for my crazy goal of sub-60 in the TC 10 Miler, but I think sub-61 is a more realistic goal. I’ve got 4 weeks of training left, so we’ll see what happens!!....
(p.s. Make sure to stop by tomorrow. I have a pretty good “Friday Funny” in the works...)
