Frozen and Les Mis Mashup

My legs are jello.  I can barely keep my eyes open.  I did a 7 mile run this morning and now my evening is toast.  I was ready for bed at 4:00!

The run however, was fantastic.  For the last few months I've been listening to the Frozen Movie Soundtrack while running.   I LOVE it.  It's perfect and yes, I have been seen laughing, crying, singing and even doing jazz  hands with Olaf while running.  Today I decided it was time for a change,  I knew I was going to run longer and I needed a few more songs. 

I went to switch to my standby favorite playlist "Country Running".  Huh, nothing in it.  I suck at Itunes so I am sure I did something wrong.  Anyhow I didn't have time to be messing around and I needed to get out the door.  I had big plans today...Costco was waiting.  So what did I actually have on my phone that would work....Boris Karloff's the The Ginch?  Nope, no good.   Les Mis soundtrack?  Yep, that will do!

So I hit a few of my favorites and added them to my Frozen playlist.  OMG it was so perfect!  When "Valjean's Soliloquy" transitioned to "Let it Go". It could not have been more perfect!  He ends with:

I'll escape now from that world
From the world of Jean Valjean
Jean Valjean is nothing now
Another story must begin!
Pretty much the same thing Elsa is singing about in "Let it Go".  I was pumped!  Music really motivates me and of course the emotions in both of these are so inspiring.  So I  managed to pull off the whole 7 miles and felt pretty darn good!

My good friend Karen convinced me last November that sticking my legs in the pool 1 minute for every mile was good for my recovery.  She's not wrong, but she might be crazy.  Last fall I couldn't last more that 3 or 4 minutes.  Today the weather was nice and the water wasn't quite as cold.  I did the whole 7 minutes.  Guess I am crazy too!
