2. I am the eldest of four children, one boy and three girls. My nicknames as a child were Bossy Boots and Zippy. Bossy Boots came from my know-at-all-I’m-in-charge-attitude. [I’m still working on that one] and Zippy came from the song Zippity-do-dah. My dad used to call me Dorry-do-dah and it sort of just morphed to Zippy. I really love the nickname, though my uncle is the only one who still uses it.
3. I’m racing Sunday! My first 8K race since June of 2009. I’m Dreaming Big for Sunday!
My workout for the day was a tempo. I didn’t think I would get to run the way my day was going so I was SUPER happy to be able to fit in a 5 mile tempo, 2 miles at a tempo pace of 6:40. I like to switch up my tempos to keep my body from plateauing. Some weeks I run a relatively slower pace[it’s not slow for me at all] and do it for 5 miles, other weeks I speed up the pace and do it for less miles. I always make sure to do 2 miles warm up and if I have time, a 2 mile or more cool down. Today I only had time for a 1 mile cool down, as little man Colton, who turned 4 months old yesterday, was NOT happy sitting in his bouncy watching me run.
What’s your weekend workout this weekend? Running long? Racing? Make sure to DREAM BIG!
