Yesterday evening, Danny brought me home the best Valentine. It wasn’t chocolate. It wasn’t flowers. It was…
…coffee!! ( I don’t know why my head is so weirdly tilted).
I was way more excited for the coffee than I was for the chocolate covered strawberries (which were delicious, by the way). I have been looking for the Golden French Toast coffee everywhere, and I haven’t been able to find it. I mentioned how hard it was to find the other day, and Danny went out to Wal-Mart near his work and was able to find it!
Now, I know he really loves me…I wasn’t too sure before I also know that I have an odd obsession with coffee. I’ve got my eye on that Keurig Vue coffee maker…too bad the thing cost $200!
Our dinner last night was very nice. We had a candlelight dinner with every candle I could find in the house, and the kids got to order off their menus. It was a lot of fun. After dinner, Danny took Jacob to archery, and we had dessert when they got home.
I ate a lot.
- 9.33 miles treadmill (!!!!)
- 15 minutes stretching
Yes, you read that correctly – I ran 9.33 miles today!!
I decided not to go to BodyPump this morning and run on the treadmill instead. I was feeling good so my goal was to finish 5 miles in under an hour. I finished 5 miles in 55:34. Then I figured why not keep going?
I didn’t have to pick my niece up today, so I had some extra time to spend in the gym. I completed 9.33 miles in one hour and 51 minutes. I was able to run the first five miles without stopping at a slow and steady pace. After five miles, I had to incorporate some walk breaks.
I felt awesome, especially because I tend to stick to 3 or 4 miles at a time. 9.33 miles is my second longest distance. Bring on The Biggest Loser 15k!
Post 9.33 miles:
I wore my calves sleeves during my run, and surprisingly, my right quad is the most sore right now. I did make sure to stretch after my run. Maybe I should pull the foam roller out…
According to my BodyMedia Fit , I have taken over 17,000 steps and burned over 1800 calories by 11 am! A good way to start the weekend!
Have a wonderful weekend!
- Do you have any plans this weekend?
- If you run, what’s your normal distance? Do you incorporate walk breaks?
