This and that

A little this and that catching up today…
Race results from yesterday… I finished 8/26 in my age group. 95/176 overall. My official time (not a chip timed event) was 35:01 with an 11:16 average pace. I think it’s interesting to compare placing in age groups – - last year, my official time (from their website) was 33:07 (10:40 avg pace) and 10/18 in my age group and 109/230 overall. Almost seems like an entirely different group ran the race this year.
I feel good today, my quads are a little sore probably from the hills. My knee is fine. I think I’m just going to go to yoga this morning and get a good relaxing stretch and skip the spin class. My knee will probably thank me.
Catching up on some topics from The Fitness Cheerleader’s Blogger Challenge… I missed:
5 Weird things I Like
I heat up my the milk for my coffee in the mug before I add the coffee. I don’t like the milk cooling down my coffee. I want it scalding hot. I heat it for 42 seconds.
I always sleep with my hair in a ponytail. I hate the feeling of my hair falling around me.
I like to drink with a straw. Probably every time I have a drink, I have a straw (except coffee).
I like the sheets on my bed to be perfectly smooth. I will smooth and tighten the fitted sheet every night before I get into bed. Wrinkles in the fitted sheet really irritate me.
I like carrots in my salads. I know this doesn’t seem weird, but my husband doesn’t really think that carrots belong in salad. I shred them so they don’t change the texture too much, but I’ve always felt that carrots belong in a salad.
