I had a late night last night so I didn’t get up quite as early as I would have liked 😦 But on the bright side, I went to the gym and had a great workout on the treadmill today! A workout that is no stranger to my weekly schedule…
1 mile warm up- 9min pace
4 miles- 8min pace w/ 2min pickupsX 4 (6:30 pace)
1 mile cooldown- 9min pace
Not too hard, not too easy. I then topped my workout off with some weight training (which I’m just starting to get back into!) I felt a little sluggish but managed to push through and felt great afterward! So great in fact that I decided to treat myself with a Dunkin Donuts iced coffee 🙂 (YUM).
When I got home, I had my FAVORITE breakfast (Power Oatmeal) and caught up on some shows on my DVR 🙂 All and all I had a pretty good day so far.
Yesterday, a few friends and I went on a much needed trip to Whole Foods! I got some great snacks and such… keep on the lookout for a future post on those! After, a friend of mine introduced us to Orange Leaf and I completely fell in love! I don’t know if any of you have ever heard of it, but they sell self serve frozen yogurt and let me tell you..it is DELICIOUS. I had a nice mixture of coffee, red velvet, and peanut butter covered in fruits and nuts (AKA treat #1) 🙂
Later that night we went to a mexican restaurant near us called Agave. I don’t think it’s a chain, but it was delicious! We all shared some nachos (slip/treat #2) then my friend and I split a chicken and veggie quesadilla. Probably wasn’t the healthiest option on the menu but hey, it’s vacation…let’s live a little, right? Right. We then topped off the night by going to an adorable cafe down the street where I sipped yummy green tea and chatted with some friends for a while! Look at the presentation this place has! My mind was blown…
Yesterday I was introduced to so many new things and loved every second of it! Which brings me to my question for you guys. I’m thinking of running my first half marathon soon and am wondering what you guys think. I want to but am a little hesitant because I’ve never done something like this before and don’t know if I should do it alone or with a friend, this spring or this fall, or even if I should do it at all! Ideas?
