Getting in the Miles

Good Morning!  I’m about to walk out the door to head to Atlantic City for the rest of the weekend, but I just wanted to check in and say hi!

Yesterday after work I begrudgingly went to the gym when all I really wanted to do was sit down and make a cocktail, but that was my punishment for bailing on Wednesday.  Since I knew I would be running Thurs, Fri, and Sat and running three days in a row is not something my body likes to do I decided to make my Friday run a short speed run.  I did a one mile warm-up on the elliptical and then hopped on the treadmill for a fast two miles

  • Mile 1: 8:34
  • Mile 2: 8:31
  • 17:05 total

I knew I could run one mile at an 8:34 pace so I was proud of myself for pushing it and doing two at that pace.  Then when I got home I opened the packaged that had been delivered.  Last week, Ryan at POM Wonderful had contacted me asking if I would be interested in trying a case of their POM Wonderful juice, and I of course told her I would be thrilled.  Yesterday the pretty little bottles were delivered and I opened one right away.

I was excited to see that it was Pomegranate  Blueberry flavor, and I really enjoyed it.  It was refreshing with just a little sourness.  I mixed it with some vodka last night and it made a yummy cocktail.  Definitely a refreshing summer beverage, in fact I’m packing some to take to the beach today.

This morning my alarm went off bright and early so I could get out and run, and it was beautiful outside!  It was about 70 degrees and low humidity, I just wish my legs had felt as nice as the weather.  Running three days in a row was tough on the leggies and they were feeling tired and heavy today.  I really just wanted to get the mileage in, so I pushed through and finished my 3.8 miles in about a 10:04 pace.  Not even close to as fast as I’d been doing on the treadmill but not too slow either.

Alright well I’m outa here.  I hope everyone has a great day, wish me luck in case I decide to do some gambling!
