Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?



The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

Training

Since my 16 miler last Saturday, I did an 8 miler on Sunday. Monday was supposed to be 5 miles, but since I didn't have a rest day, I bumped it down to 2. I did Boot Camp class Monday night and she killed my arms and core!

Tuesday, was a rainy, sleep in kind of day so I decided to do my speed work instead of my 8 miler. It was only 3 (1 mile repeats) at 8:15 pace. I thought, piece of cake right? I made it through the first one ok. By the time I got half way through the second one I was glad I only had three. By the time I was in the third one, I was struggling, but made it through.

Today, I'm sore. And I'm mentally tired. My options were face the .5 mile loop 16 times or get on the treadmill. I chose the treadmill at 5:20am. But as I started running, I was sore. I was tired, and I just didn't want to do it. I decided I'd walk for an hour and half. About 4ish miles in of run/walking, I realized that if I started running I'd be at my 8 miles at about an hour and half. So I ran, and I ran, and I ran, and I ran. Well, that's what it felt like anyway. All in all, I got 8 miles in today.

Rest tomorrow... 18 miles on Friday - or that's the plan.
