I did not sleep well last night AT ALL! I woke up at like 4:30 with a stomach ache and I could not get back to sleep til like 6. I ended up sleeping later than I wanted to because I needed to catch up on the missed hour. I quickly got out of bed and brought my car to the shop for an oil change. I must admit though it was a nice walk home after I dropped the car off. It was a nice morning and it woke me up some.
I’ve been working on my new blog because I finally have my own domain name. It’s not quite ready yet, but things are coming along smoothly. I am excited about it.
I definitely needed a coffee today! Especially before I started writing.
I wrote three articles today for IRLF and Health Kicker and I was extra proud of those specific ones for some reason. I just thought they were some of the best articles I’ve written. I eventually got out for a run around 3 pm. I had a dreadful tempo run scheduled for today.
Scheduled was 2 miles easy, followed by 3 miles at short tempo pace (8:30), then 1 mile easy. I must say I had a surprisingly good run today. I feel improvement.
Here are my stats:
- Distance: 6 Miles
- Duration: 56:52
- Pace: 9:28
- Calories Burned: 609
Mile 1: 10:05
Mile 2: 10:11
Mile 3: 8:53
Mile 4: 8:40
Mile 5: 8:50
Mile 6: 10:11
I felt pretty strong by the time I finished Mile 5, two weeks ago when I did this same run, I was dying by mile 4.5. I am also very happy that the tempo miles were all under 9 minutes. I honestly believe that mile 3 and mile 5 were longer because of how many stop lights I had to stop at. I felt right on target today. : )
I ate this when I got home. Some Bear Naked granola and some Chobani greek yogurt.
For dinner I made the most amazing egg sandwich ever! I don’t know why it was so good, but I did not want it to end. I could’ve eaten 3 of them!
A Ray’s bagel with butter and 1 egg with muenster cheese, mmmmm!
