Epic Weekend

Epic seems to be the theme of this weekend!

We went to Epic last night, had an epic night, and woke up this morning for an epic run which turned into another epic morning 🙂



Even though we had our fair share of fun last night. . . I woke up feeling good and ready to get a weekend sweat on.  I may not have my long runs anymore, but I still like a good sweat.

I woke up slowly with coffee and half a Chocolate Crunch Power Bar (new to me, I liked it), then headed down to the gym for a quick run while Zach finished up work.  Our plan was to head up to my favorite park and run a few miles together as well.



So I jumped on the treadmill and took a VERY easy first mile, followed by 400 repeats of 7.1-7.3 (400 on, 400 off) until I hit the 5k mark.  I finished in about 28:35.

I then did 50 sit ups and headed out with Zach to continue to the work out!DSCN1154 DSCN1153 DSCN1152 DSCN1151

It was SO nice to have Zach with me for the afternoon run.  Not only was it PERFECT running weather (high 50’s, low wind), we stayed at a pace that was very manageable (about 937), kept switching up trails, and before we knew it 3.5 miles were done.  WOOT!

Pretty impressive considering Zach rode 30 miles yesterday and I had already ran on the treadmill, THEN given my legs a break, which normally equals lead legs.

Seriously, what a perfect morning! 🙂

We went grocery shopping right after (smelly and all)  and picked up some necessities.  We’ve been bare bones here in the apartment with Zach gone for four weeks, so this was a big grocery week.

But more importantly, we picked up goodies for me to bake Zach his birthday cake

More pictures and recipe to come soon, but this one looks CARAMEL good!

Question fo the Afternoon:  What birthday cake would you have baked for you if you had your choice of ANY?
