5 Things Friday

WORKOUT Wednesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill Thursday: 4 miles @8:20 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Friday: 6 miles @ 8:10 pace on treadmill ****** The weather here has been less than desirable. NOTHING compared to what everyone else is dealing with, but not great none the less, so I’ve been doing all my runs on the treadmill. Not a big deal for me thanks to my gym set up, but I know some of you hate it. I haven’t done one of these “5 things” posts in a while and I have a bunch of random crap to […]

My Running Funk

WORKOUT Monday: 4 miles @ 8:20 pace/ Body Pump Tuesday: 4 miles @ 8:20 pace/ Pilates Two good runs and two great classes. A nice start to the week. ****** After getting back from Asia, I thought I was going to be itching more than ever to go running. Eehhhh, not so much. Granted, we both got sick in China (I’ll recap that soon!) and I was still coughing and blowing my nose like it was my job when we got back. We got in late Tuesday night and I had NO desire to run Wednesday. In fact, I slept […]

What Do You Do When You Have a Girls Night and One of the Girls Isn’t There?

WORKOUT Saturday: 12 miles @ 8:18 pace on trail Sunday: 6 miles @ 8:23 pace on treadmill Recap below. ****** My weekend started early Saturday morning with a bowl of oatmeal… then I was off to meet my girlfriend Hailey up for coffee at Starbucks around 7:30. We talked for over two and a half hours, catching up. I brought a banana to snack on, as I was planning on heading from there to run. I didn’t end up running until 10:30! Thankfully, it was still cold enough to be comfortable, but not too cold. I was able to wear […]

National Peanut Butter Day and Riley Love

WORKOUT Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Friday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ 8 min abs video Like I said at the beginning of the week… getting back into the grove of things on the workout/running front. No races lined up for the time being, so running is just for fun ****** After a nice little run on the treadmill this morning, I had my usual post run breakfast- a nice big, warm bowl of oatmeal paired with some greek yogurt and Cafe Dumond. I stretched, did my 8 min abs video, and hung out […]

Hong Kong

WORKOUT Tuesday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace on treadmill/ Pilates Wednesday: 8 miles @ 8:19 pace on trail Today’s run outside was MUCH better than Sunday’s. I think my body was still getting over a cold and I just felt lethargic Sunday. Today, other than really cold, I felt great! ****** Our next stop after Shanghai was Hong Kong. We had a late flight and went straight to the hotel and headed to bed. The next morning, we took an hour ferry ride to Macau. Macau is like Hong Kong… it’s a Special Administrative Region of China. So technically it’s […]

Friends + Family + Food= Long Weekend Fun!

WORKOUT Saturday: 4 miles @ 8:25 pace on treadmill Sunday: 10ish miles @ untimed pace on trail Monday: Body Pump My garmin died after 1.5 miles on Sunday… who knew you’d have to charge your watch after it sat for a month, haha. Oh well. I wasn’t worried about time anyways. Les Mills came out with a new release over the weekend and so far I’m not a huge fan. Hopefully it will grow on me. Let’s see how sore I am this week, haha. ****** The next few weeks are all about getting together with friends and family to […]

Shanghai

WORKOUT Wednesday: (the day after we got back) Rest Thursday: 4 miles un-timed on trail/ Body Pump Friday: 6 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill Slowly getting back into the swing of things after a month long vacay that included little running. I’ll update you guys on the running front soon I was more sore than I’d like to admit after BP, haha. ****** Just in case you forgot… HERE is where we left off. OK. So, from Tokyo, we went flew to Shanghai. Our flight to started off with a surprise… dinner! I got fish/rice and Todd got beef/noodles. […]
