Morning Workout: 4 miles @ 31:09 (avg pace = 7’47″)
I always seem to run out of time in the mornings to get in a good 3 reps of either an upper or lower body workout after running and the abs challenge. Even though I get up before the sun, I enjoy a good, leisurely hour before actually getting my butt in gear. This may sound crazy to 99.9% of you, but it’s how I roll.
I’ve decided that I’m going to start breaking up my workout into two parts, and completing my abs exercises at the end of the day. I can tell that I’m not working as hard on my strength training, and that’s something that’s important to me to maintain. So starting tonight, I will do my second half of my workout while watching Survivor.
I was able to get a nice Tempo Run in this morning. I have created an extra goal for April: 5 runs with an average pace of 7’50″ or faster. Today was one of those days.
I started out wanting to have one of my “fun runs,” and go at a decent clip around 8’05.” As I was rounding the corner on my 3rd mile, I started losing a little steam, so I switched over to my Power Song: “Sexy and I Know It” and blasted through! I was proud of myself for completing such a challenging run. I didn’t look down to see what my pace was, so when I saw my splits on the Nike Running site, it all made sense.
In other exciting news, Dear Hubby and I received our Easter Basket from my mom and dad. It doesn’t matter how old you get, seeing the pink crinkle grass around a bag of pastel M&Ms makes me laugh and squeal with joy.
Oh my Sugar-Induced-Coma-Causing Lord! Do my parents know how to celebrate the end of a 40-day Sugar-Free Lenten season or what?!?!
The truth is, I’m enjoying my sugarless lifestyle so much, I am planning on keeping it up. Dear Hubby agreed that was fair.
While Dear Hubby was wriggling in his new-found spoils of being my parents’ son-in-law, I don’t think he noticed that I slipped this bag of practically sugar-free Easter treats:
Fancy Oatmeal logic dictates that if you have 10% or less of a serving size = zero calories/sugar
Do you still get an Easter basket?
Do you have any special rules for eating?
