Today’s workout 6 miles – 2 incline – treadmill – 51 minutes – 7.1MPH
It’s always a bit awkward when I make my away back to the cube with a red face, a gymbag and hair slightly less styled then it was earlier that morning.B The downside of lunchtime work-out!B The best part though, I feel fully energized to plummet into the second half of my work for the day.B If only I was that productive with everything else in my life.
I gained a .1MPH speed.B Last week I was at 7.0.B Working towards an 8MPH!B Okay, I must confess, I’m also secretly training for a 10K.B I registered for a local one that’s the weekend after my DC Marathon.B I’ve only ran one 10K before and that was for the same race last year.B I finished in 51:34, 3rd in my age group. Okay to be fair, less than 118 people ran, but still I got my eyes on first place.B That involves cutting a minute of each mile.B So not likely, but I still want to improve my 10K PR.
Today is Friday.B Which is awesome in of itself.B Sadly the weather did not cooperate.B However, you know what else I love about Fridays is office free food.B Sometimes after Friday lunch meetings there’s free food and I rejoice.B This works out perfectly when I get back from my run and just want to eat at my desk so I can do work.B Greek Salad, rice pilaf, and gyro meat from Jaffa Cafe.B I could be a normal person and make a gyro sandwich with my pita, but there just isn’t pita to fit all the food I want in my belly.
Today is also the last Friday of the Monday.B That means Birthday Cake!B Happy birthday February people!B And yes, if you cover up your double chocolate cake with strawberries, it magically becomes healthy.B I don’t know why I had the yogurt there, I think I had some idea of using it for cream and then got lazy.
Any fun plans for this weekend?
Just another 20 miler!B Hopefully the weather will clear up.B I’m also trying to catch up on my March magazine issues pile that keeps growing on my desk.B B Maybe even finish Girl with Dragon Tattoo.B I know, I live a crazy life.
