I swear I didn’t forget this is a running and healthy living blog 🙂
Oh yeah — back to business, as I promised. Better late than never, right?
The run streak continues with a 5 mile run this evening post work.
Workout of the Day: 5 mile progressive run on the ol’ tread.
I know I have been getting much better about getting my patute outside and pounding the pavement for these runs, but as I mentioned earlier today Denver got it’s first real snow (and FREEZING cold temps). While I am getting over my fear of running in the dark, I am not over my fear of running over ice and snow.
I started the run at an easy pace for me (6.2), and kept pushing it up as I felt comfortable and ended about 7.3 I believe. I finished the run in just under 46 minutes, which is fine by me.
I didn’t have much planned for this run, just to run by feel…but added an extra mile because I have a treat waiting for me when I finished.
That’s right…Zach and I deserved another small pistachio cake, so I got us one. If I eat half the cake tonight (to be fair it’s only a 4 inch cake), the extra mile TOTALLY covers that, right?
Thanks, I thought so too.
With tonight’s 5 mile run, I’m square at 80.5 for the month of November, leaving 19.5 miles to go. While that seems super manageable, ski season is hitting, so my little legs need to be ready at a minutes notice to hit the slopes…which may take away my weekend miles.
Let’s just say I’m not complaining 🙂
While I wouldn’t be complaining if it were, tonight wasn’t completely about running and treats. We did have some amazing, healthy eats prepared with love from the hubs since I worked late and had to run post work…
Stuffed acorn squash and grilled chicken. Ummm….hello perfect.
Question of the Night: Zach added bacon and brown sugar to the squash. Is there anything that bacon does NOT make better in the world? Honestly?
