First off, I want to link back to my post, Comparison Trap through the the Love Yourself link up. This is something I’m pretty passionate about and I think this link up is an amazing way for us to get together and talk about the importance of each other, and really Loveing ourselves :).
Ok — down to business. I was surprised by how much support my morning post about skipping a work out and vitamins got. I am SO thankful for all your feedback, and am happy to know I’m not the only one who is a bit confused on the topic.
As for the AM workout, it happened, at 5 PM this afternoon :).
Hey, I told you all I’d squeeze it in!
Workout for the Day: Music Treadmill Run
- Run for the length of Fall Out Boy Album
- 1 song steady run warm up
- 10 songs running 6.1-6.3 pace, with 8.0 during chorus.
- 2 song cool down at 6.1-6.4
- 5 minute incline walk cool down (really I just wanted to finish CHOPPED on TV).
The run went well! I normally do feel stronger in the afternoons than work day AM’s and I think it’s because I’ve gotten a few meals in me and had time to digest. With that said, I still like to get my work outs done in the AM and enjoy the family in the PM.
You may notice that I haven’t listed a distance for this run.
Unfortunately at song 10, in the midst of a speedy chorus, I hit the little red button that completely stops the treadmill and erases the run history. So, after cursing for a few seconds, I started the treadmill back up and finished out my run. Unfortunately I only have proof of 1.5 miles at the end, because I had a tshirt over the milage and time to keep me from obsessing over it while I ran. My guess is somewhere between 5 and 6 miles, closer to the 5.5 point.
All in all, I felt strong the entire run and besides the darn emergency stop, overall I had a great run.
After my work out, Zach and I caught up for a bit while making a nice, healthy dinner.
Salmon marinated in Jerk sauce, a loaf of everything bread, and a salad with
- garden grape tomatoes
- parmasen cheese
- roasted red pepper salad
Perfect balance of cards, healthy fats, and veggies for my post run self 🙂
And now it’s time to hang out with the family and enjoy some brownies…if there are any left! Zach went on a long bike ride today and I’m not confident that he left me much…
Quesiton for the night: Have you ever had a run in with the dreaded emergency stop button?
