Two Good Runs and Some Random Goodness
Friday: 4 miles @ 8:35 pace on treadmill (w/ 1 mile @ 7:30)
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 mini speed work, haha. I treated myself to some good ole, outta the blue box, Kraft mac n cheese. Well actually, it was a single serving cup, but it was just as good!
The second good run was Sunday. I ran with Marissa outside last week for my 6 miler and she was back in town this weekend. I never miss a chance to run with her because she doesn’t live here anymore. Seriously, love that girl! What made this run even better was that Christina, Brittany and Camille from work were also on the trail! Yay for running buddies 🙂 We even shaved 2 seconds off last weeks long run.
This should be a pic of the group, but I didn’t get one 🙁
All of my running and Body Pumping has stayed pretty consistent the past few weeks. I’m running 4-5 days a week and trying to do at least one run outside a week (more if I have people to run with) and one long run of 6 miles. I’m still keeping the paces on the slower side, but can’t help running a little quicker when I’m with friends 🙂 On the weight lifting side of things, I’ve only been doing Body Pump and no weights on my own. I’ve kept the weight much lower than I was doing pre-baby making. I rarely get sore from that class now, which is a good and bad thing. I SHOULDN’T be stressing my body to soreness, but I think every once in a while won’t hurt.
I was food prepping for the week and remembered that Christina roasted the seeds from a spaghetti squash, so I tried it (the spaghetti was on another pan, this was butternut squash) and they came out pretty yummy. Just like pumpkin seeds.
