You guys, I totally forgot it was Fat Tuesday until it was too late to go to the grocery store. Where are a girl’s doughnuts (or, fastnachts as we call them in Central PA) when she needs them??? It’s okay really because I had more than my Fat Tuesday’s-share of Dunkin’ over the past month. And since I’m a bad person, I’ll probably still be gorging on naughty treats during Lent.
In news/penance, I had a good week of workouts to commemorate.
Monday: Running, tempo, 4.50 miles @ 10:31 average pace—47 minutes
So a 10:30 min/mi doesn’t really seem tempo upfront when compared to my race paces BUT I was running with marathon friend Diana, and we talked the whole time (lung power!) and didn’t stop for a single walk break.
Tuesday: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, Level 3 intermediate with 3 lb. weights—20 minutes
Wednesday: Rest Day
Thursday: Running, tempo, 4.80 miles @ 9:52 average pace—47 minutes
See what a difference not talking makes? I am super proud of this run—Thursday was brutally cold and windy, and I was convinced during the work day that I was going to collapse on the couch when I got home. Instead, I changed into my running clothes as soon as I was in the door, and I made it out for my nearly-5 miler while it was still light. Score!
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Running, long with hills, 6.99 miles @ 10:48 average pace—1 hour 15 minutes
Another conversation-filled run! My cardio capabilities are definitely improving these days!
Sunday: Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six Pack, Level 1 intermediate with 3 lb. weights—30 minutes
Oscars Sunday was a smashing personal success, maybe because after doing abs exercise I got to stuff my face for free at a classy awards spread. This is what friends are for.
This week is starting off with a whimper—rest day on Monday and what looks to be a rest day today. I could do a cross training workout now, but I’m feeling some sleep and maybe (maybe?) a morning exercise sequence tomorrow. We shall see.
