I Freakin Fell

WORKOUTS Tuesday: 4 miles @ 9:30 pace outside/ Pilates Wednesday: Rest Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:30 pace om treadmill Friday: Body Pump ****** This week has been a bit better on the weather front. Instead of waking up to 78-80 degrees with 95% humidity at 6 AM, it’s been more like 75-78 degrees with 85% humidity and a slight breeze. That may not seem like a big difference, but boy it feels so much “nicer” out. Now, by no means is it actually nice out, it’s just way more tolerable. I’ll take anything that doesn’t make me sweat just walking […]

Ohhhh, Riley Ry

WORKOUTS Sunday: 6 miles @ 8:34 on treadmill Monday: 4 miles @ 8:38 on trail/ Body Pump ****** Our precious Riley Ry has been growing bumps on her limbs. From everything we’ve read, as long as they move, aren’t rock hard and don’t bother her, they’re fine. Most likely they are just cysts. There are a couple of smaller bumps on her legs, but then one big one. She’s been licking the big one raw and while it doesn’t hurt her to touch or move then bump, I think it’s uncomfortable for her and that’s why she licks it- a […]

WIAW: What I Ate Wednesday

WORKOUTS Monday: Body Pump/ 30 minutes on stationary bike Tuesday: 4 miles @ 8:35 pace on treadmill/ Pilates Wednesday: 4 miles @ 9:30 pace outside ****** A lot of my fellow bloggers participate in a blog link up called What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) which showcase what one eats in a day. It’s not always one full day of eats and it’s usually not Wednesday’s eats, it’s just posted on Wednesday. Sometimes it’s the persons favorite snacks, or lunches from the past week , or just delicious foods they’ve been enjoying. It’s really anything the blogger wants it to be. […]

Two Good Runs and Some Random Goodness

WORKOUTS Friday: 4 miles @ 8:35 pace on treadmill (w/ 1 mile @ 7:30) Saturday: Rest Sunday: 6 miles @ 8:35 on trail ****** I had two really good runs this week. One was Friday, when I ran one of my four miles at a 7:30 pace! Woo Hoo! Now, I know not to push it, but I just had to get that feeling of my legs turning over and my lungs breathing heavy. Of course, this was done on a treadmill, so it’s a bit easier than doing it outside, but I still got the endorphin rush from the […]

Lay’s Chips, Mexican Trader Joe’s and Some Things to Help Get Pregnant (I Hope)

WORKOUTS Monday: 4 miles @ 8:45 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Tuesday: 4 miles @ 8:35 pace on trail/ Pilates Wednesday: Rest Thursday: 4 miles @ 8:45 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump ****** Lets get right to it… Last year, Lays held a flavor contest and I tried the three winning flavors and so this year, when they did it again, I knew I had to try them! The Mango Salsa were really good and very mangoy. I really liked that they were the heavier, wavy chips. If you like mango, you’ll love these, as they are more on the […]

PB Cups, Parties and Pizza

WORKOUTS Thursday: Rest Friday: 4 miles @ 8:45 pace on treadmill/ Body Pump Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:37 pace on trail Sunday: Rest ****** I was lucky enough to get in two runs outside this week, BOTH with girlfriends. Doesn’t get much better than that in the running world… at least mine for the time being Saturday I met up with Marissa to keep her company during her 18 miler. She was great and didn’t mind when I asked to slow down or stop for water- which we did twice. The temp was around 78 degrees with 85%  humidity and […]
