I was really hoping to get some non-fitness posts up this week, but I was really busy with work. I’m having a hard time finding time for things other than family, exercise and work. It’s taking me 3 weeks to sew a dress for myself! I used to be able to whip one up in a day! I used to be spoiled!
Saturday – 10.5 miles (9:57 min/mile) We did our usual group run and there were lots of different distances to choose from. I had to play catch up because my GPS wasn’t working when we started, so I started off way too fast, which left me dragging a bit at the end. At least it was a gorgeous day! I was overdressed with long sleeves on!
Sunday – We had a kids fun run! It was supposed to take place last week, but the path was ice covered, so we postponed it. The kids had a beautiful day as well. They were so cute running! Cupcake ran 1 mile while I pushed Pumpkin in the stroller. She got out and ran the last .25 miles. And by run I mean walked.
Monday – Group Power at the Y
Tuesday – 3.25 miles of intervals with my girl Susan. She wanted to run in the afternoon and when the weather was 32 in the morning with a forecast of 50 for the afternoon I decided to join her. Little did she know I was going to torture her! The plan was .75 miles at 8:20 min/mile with a 2 minute recovery x 2, then .5 miles at 8:12 min/mile with a 2 minute recovery x 2, but we actually ran a little faster!
Wednesday – Pumpkin didn’t want to go to the Y (she was too excited about her new cans of PlayDoh) so we stayed home and I did a dance cardio DVD and found a Total Body Burn video on YouTube.
Thursday – I joined my good friend Kara for a 3.5 mile run for her 35th birthday. I had 7 on the schedule and planned to do a second loop until I ran the first loop, pushing the stroller in the wind and snow (remember how I ran in short sleeves earlier in the week?). But later in the day Cupcake asked to go to the Y, so I got another 3 miles done on the treadmill (9:30, 8:30, 8:00 splits) and ran through some strength training and abs.
I’m taking today off because of yesterday’s double and I want to keep my legs fresh for tomorrow’s long run. And Cupcake has a full day of school, so Pumpkin and I are going to go have some fun without having to rush back home. IKEA here we come!!! Someone needs some accessories for her big girl room!!
Have a great weekend!!!!
