I love the kids that we get to help! Today I ran 3 miles total all in our appartment complex. Super boring but you do what you can do with what you got ya know? So I did a 200, 400, 800, 400, 200 at 10k pace and then just a warm up mile and a cool down. Pretty easy workout. Still adjusting to the time zone and humidity. But it was so fun and felt great even though it was just circles around my building! Also few baby hills in there didn&#39;t hurt anyone(;&nbsp;</p> Tue, 21 Feb 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 18, 2017 http://mickinleyb.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-18-2017.html <p>So I moved to China. And it&#39;s the most amazing place. I love it so much. And today was the first day that I was allowed to go outside and run and it was in the city and really scary but exciting and I felt so good! But I only went 2 miles. Because I have to have someone with all the time. And no one else wanted to go further. What a blessing. But really my legs felt so good!&nbsp;</p> Sat, 18 Feb 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Feb 04, 2017 http://mickinleyb.fastrunningblog.com/blog-02-04-2017.html <p>It was the most beautiful day outside. Like ever. Such a blessing for reals. So I made my baby sister Elle run with my and she is such a treat. We talked while we ran/walked/hiked/skipped and it was the happiest thing. I really needed this one for my soul.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 04 Feb 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Jan 30, 2017 http://mickinleyb.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-30-2017.html <p>2.15 miles on the Utahrun treamill. S/o to that treamill for being there for me when it&#39;s hecka cold outside. Even though its way too complicated to figure out the technology on that thing. Did 10 min of abs which was fun and I may go to yoga tonight I&#39;m not quite sure.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 30 Jan 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Jan 26, 2017 http://mickinleyb.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-26-2017.html <p>Lol @ me. I&#39;ve slacked off so hard this week. I ate bad (curse those conversation hearts) and didn&#39;t run. Today I did the TRX and saw Matt Jones and he was like &quot;do you still run?&quot; and I really wanted to honestly say yes. Which means I should get serious about running the Great Wall Marathon. Which means I should probably train for it. Wish me luck.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 26 Jan 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Jan 21, 2017 http://mickinleyb.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-21-2017.html <p>Ran two miles in the good ol Bandits. And I think the indoor track at the Legacy Center is gonna have to be a regular thing because every time I run there it feels so great. Ran a nice warm up mile with Caela and then did 8 200s. Short workout but I&#39;m getting back in ya know. Kept the 200s all under 50 sec which old me would have been upset about but now me is proud of. Then I lifted a little. Played some good ol basketball for a while and then as Caela and I were walking out and the pool was closed so we spontaneously decided to jump in. The whole time I&#39;m doing all other sorts of exercise I feel great no problems. And then as soon as I get in the pool my calf hurts like crazy. So that&#39;s a problem. But it was so refreshing I can&#39;t even tell ya, it felt great. So we swam around for a bit and then I rolled in some snow all wet as a dare and then Caela rolled out my calf. It was pretty much a 10/10 night.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 21 Jan 2017 07:00:00
