Saturday: BodyPump (1 hour)
Sunday: 4.09 mile run (39:09)
My friend Amy and I ran 3 miles after school on Friday in her neighborhood. We are getting ready to start up an 18 week training plan for a spring marathon. We are definitely kicking up our workouts after the holiday break with running again and BodyPump. I went to 3 BodyPump classes this week!! Three classes a week is not my goal… 2 classes a week will fit into my schedule for this spring and is my goal. I’m definitely feeling better and my appetite is starting to increase with the added workouts!
Amy and I with our matchy matchy green Garmins on Friday. I know, we are too cute.
Our stats while we talked the whole time. It is definitely difficult to talk to a friend while running at first, but I really think it is a good thing!
Earlier today, Colby and I went out for a 4 mile run in our new neighborhood. Since we were running separately, I was kinda nervous to go out on new roads. I’ve actually been avoiding running outside in the new neighborhood because I’m scared the new roads will be busy with cars and I’ll get lost. Seriously, how horrible would it be if I got lost?! Colby told me where he was going run and promised me I would like it because the roads were safe. I decided to go for it and he was right. I really liked it! It is refreshing trying a new running route and I think I could really add on to it for longer runs in the future. We are so lucky to have long roads that go through communities of houses with safe roads. I guess I’ll get more adventurous this spring…
My run from today… I tried to kick up the pace near the very end and was happy to see I had gotten into the 7′s for a little bit! The big difference between the roads near our new house are hills. I am not a fan of running hilly roads but I think this will be good for me. Nothing is really flat around here.
Garmin question… does anyone know how to change the intervals for elevation on Garmin Connect??? I really don’t think it was by 250 ft intervals before… and it makes all of my latest runs look flat! There were hills… I promise! Do any Garmin people know how to change the elevation charts???
Colby and I bought a filing cabinet from someone on Craig’s List this weekend because we had bills and house papers everywhere. We spent the rest of today filing tons of papers and cleaning the house. I didn’t get the Christmas tree down yet, but it can wait another week. I currently have the lights on while I type on the couch. Might as well turn it on so I can enjoy the lights a little longer!
Also thought I should mention that Colby just got super excited that I told him it was okay to go to Five Guy’s to pick up a burger. I seriously think I am the health food police and should probably take it down a notch so I don’t drive him crazy. I didn’t feel like cooking anything for dinner and have been snacking on chocolate chips and granola. He said he would bring me back some fries :) I wasn’t that hungry because I made quesadillas for a late lunch today.
Tofu (Colby had chicken) quesadilla with salsa, guac and dairy-free sour cream!!
I found this at our new grocery store this weekend!! I was SO excited because I couldn’t find it before and it has been probably 2 years or more since I had sour cream. It tasted just like it, which I expected because I had this brand’s cream cheese before and it is good.
I hope you had a good weekend! I’m ready for some more running and BodyPump this week. I really need to spend some time with my foam roller and stretch more from the extra workouts! And seriously, does anyone know how to change the elevation intervals on Garmin Connect????
