Fitness Friday

Saturday - 8.25 miles in 1:41!!! WOOP WOOP!! (said with fist pumping action). Average pace 12:19. Weather was beautiful. Sun was shining. Me and Traci KICKED ASS!!! Did 5/2 intervals and felt AWESOME! Gonna try to keep increasing the run time during the short runs this week and then during next week's long run (gotta do 9 next week) we'll try bumping up the intervals to 6 and 2. What a difference it makes when you have someone running along side you.

Tuesday - 3 miles. Didn't bring my timer and didn't time my intervals...just ran when I felt like running and walked when I felt like walking.

Wednesday - Woke up feeling like a slug...so I skipped the morning run and squeezed it in at night instead. Ran 5 miles....oh yes I did! Did 10/2 intervals for the entire 5 miles.....oh yes I did! Finished 5 miles in 58:38....with an average pace of 11:44.....oh yes I did! I am running mommy blogger....hear me roar!

Thursday - had every intention of running last night....but..... when I got home around 6 and walked to my room to change clothes I found our little puppy in her crate covered in poop. Yeah. That was pleasant. So I bathed our dog and disinfected her crate instead of running. By the time I had finished all that I had lost my gusto.

The scale shows 143 this morning....which means I'm down 2 pounds from last week. I'm trying to eat better....actually....truth be told...the only reason I'm down 2 pounds is because we ran out of the chocolate candy bar stash....I ate'em all last week. And I'm still smoking. Yeah, I know, I suck. I'm going to try again next Monday. You see, this is the story of my life...I quit for a couple weeks and smoke for a couple weeks and quit for a couple weeks and smoke for a couple weeks. If I had a dime for every time a friend, family member, or neighbor said "I thought you quit".....I'd be.....standing on a huge pile of dimes. I always answer the same way...."I did quit...which time would you be referring to?"

Way to go Tammy! You'll be ready for that marathon in no time! I like the idea of running a marathon, just not the training part. :)
