Girls Night Take 2

WORKOUT 4 miles @ 8:15 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump I wanted today to be more like a rest day, so I kept it at 4 miles. I know my usual recovery run is only 2 more miles, but those 2 miles make it seem like such a longer run, haha.  I was surprised my 9:30am BP class was so packed. My fave instructor Jill, was subbing for another lady and that made me happy. She knows about my glute and doesn’t mind that I do abs during the squat and lunge tracks. Plus, she always pushes me to go […]

Five Things Fridayyyyy

WORKOUT  6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Abs My glute was a little tight when I woke up this morning. I kept the pace slow and it definitely helped loosen it up a bit. I did one of my go-to ab work outs at home. ****** 1) Remember THIS baby shower I went to for my cousin? Wellllll, she is in labor as I type this! I can’t wait to meet baby Jackson and hang out with his proud parents! My sister’s boyfriend’s mom made him this quilt… She is so talented! Can’t wait for her to make one […]

No Bake Chocolate Eclair

WORKOUT Wednesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Thursday: 10 miles @ 8:14 pace on trail The humidity was down to 85%, so it was actually bearable out this morning, haha, and I had a nice little run. I saw my sister biking, too! I felt my glute the whole time, but again, nothing hurt, it just made itself present. I wanted to keep my pace between 8:10-20 so I was happy with my 8:14. I ran the last mile or so around a 7:00 pace, just to get my legs turning over a bit. It felt […]

A Cool Front Came Through

WORKOUT Monday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Everything felt the same. I wish I had more fun, positive updates on my glute, but nope. Tuesday: 8 miles @ 8:24 pace on treadmill/ Pilates I had to move some of my runs around this week and I REALLY didn’t want to miss pilates or have to rush in the morning, so I got my 8 miles in on the treadmill. It wasn’t too bad. We did some new moves in pilates today and I’m hoping my abs are sore tomorrow ****** Let’s back track to my long […]

A Much Needed Weekend

WORKOUT Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill I actually didn’t dread this treadmill run. Still felt my glute of course, but I wasn’t bored to death, which is unusual because nothing was on TV. I ended up watching Extreme Cheapskates… interesting show to say the least! Sunday: 14 miles @ 8:01 pace on trail I’ll recap my run fully tomorrow, but overall it went fine! The weather is still gross, so no run outside is easy. I didn’t take note of my pace until the end. Not gonna lie, I wish I would have so I could have […]

Short n Sweet… or Should I Say Sour

WORKOUT Friday: 6 miles @ 8:24 pace on treadmill/ Abs I wanted to run 8 miles outside this morning, but something came up and I wasn’t able to I know the only way to feel half way decent on my long runs is to run outside more during the week, so that’s what I’m trying to do. Needless to say, I wasn’t feeling 8 on the treadmill, so I did 6. My glute felt the same. I have noticed that prolonged sitting is becoming more uncomfortable. ****** I must forewarn you that this post is mostly going to be me […]

Throw Back Thursday: School Edition

WORKOUT Wednesday: 10 miles @ 8:11 pace on trail Dang its hot outside, haha. I actually didn’t mind the heat though. Granted this run was 4 miles less than Sunday, I felt a million times (OK maybe just ten times) better afterwards. Running outside is definitely helping my running outside… get it? Acclimation is happening my friends. Thursday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Boring miles on the treadmill. Body Pump was good because one of my favorite instructors was back from a 2 month long vacay to Italy. Lucky lady! She was pumped and ready to […]
