I chose to run on the treadmill this morning for three reasons.
1. I went early and it was cold and still kind of darkish, I am a wuss and cannot handle anything but perfect weather.
2. My sister was going to the gym and I have copied every move that she makes since I can remember (which is 3 years old. Billy doesn’t believe me that I can remember things from when I was 3 but I really can).
3. I wanted to prove that silly article about treadmill hate wrong and get in a crazy good workout on the treadmill.
I did 9 miles at a 7:40 overall pace.
I started at a 7.5 on the treadmill and just kept increasing .1 every mile. For where I am right now with my fitness this workout killed me off and I had that feeling of wanting to die a little starting at mile 6 but I am glad I did it.
My new stretching set-up. At least I actually did it.
I haven’t mentioned this on the blog but I have been testing out this fuel for the last few weeks and so far so good. I really want to use it for at least a month before I do a review on it so that I can give you all the details on how it has worked with me.
Brooke got all dressed up with her boots and we were off for lunch.
Bangs washing is overrated. I got to go with these two gorgeous girls. The one on the left just got a FOURTEEN minute pr at the St. George Marathon (a 3:15!!!) and the one in the middle is the hardcore triathlete who did a half-ironman in August!!! Love talking about being addicted to endorphins.
The one in the middle treated us to the best mexican food ever. Really that guacamole was the best.
I ordered the steak and grilled veggie salad and coated it in hot sauce, guac and that dressing. It was exactly what I needed.
Now we are off to Costco to go print off Brooke’s photoshoot pictures and I am crossing my fingers that they have tons of samples because I need a snack right about now.
