Friday Workout: 5 mile run on treadmill
I started and finished this run with a 1/2 mile walk, so I ended up walking 1 full mile and running 4. I think I ran the 4 miles in about 37 minutes (9:15 ish pace)
My secret to making a treadmill run go by faster is changing the speed!! I tried to change my pace every .25 miles and this works so well for me. Most of my miles were a mix 6.3, 6.4, 6.5, and 6.6 mph. I peaked at 6.7 mph at the end before cooling down.
I know many of you probably hate the treadmill but I was more than happy to get on it this morning when it was already 90 degrees at 8:00 AM! It was over a 100 degrees here today😦
Last night, Colby and I drove his Mom to Harrisburg for a meeting and we went out to dinner at a restaurant called “Spice”. My friend Matt introduced this restaurant to me🙂
Yum! I had chicken and tortellini salad with a side of sweet potato fries and Colby had a pesto shrimp pasta dish!
Always happy to pose with his food for me🙂
I was really happy to get my TOMS shoes in the mail today! My Mom had ordered these for me last Christmas and they were a 1/2 size too small so I had to send them back. They are really soft inside and seem like they will be comfortable!
For dinner tonight, I had ground turkey in the fridge I needed to use. The electric went out around 5:00 after a crazy thunderstorm and didn’t come back on until almost 7:00. I had to wait to make dinner (and post this!) so I played on my iPhone and found a recipe for turkey/black bean burgers.
My version of the burger. This recipe is super easy, especially when you skip the salsa like I did and just throw the ingredients into a bowl without measuring!
Colby and I are a little bummed out for our weekend right now. We had plans to go to a soccer game in Philly tomorrow night with a friend, but it didn’t work out last minute. So we thought maybe we would go to the beach for a day and just stay one night. All the hotels are booked in MD and DE and have 2 night minimum. This is one of my last free weekends of the summer because I teach marching band camp for the first two full weeks of August and have other things going on…
I’m thinking of persuading him to use my guest pass for Gold’s and go to BodyPump with me at 8:30 am tomorrow…. think he will go for it?? It’s in air conditioning… isn’t that reason enough to go??
What was your Friday workout????
