I have a nice, sweaty pic of me after completing my time for Jen's challenge yesterday. Oh well, the picture will have to wait.
Came home from work yesterday (hungry as usual) and had a quick meal before taking my daughter to dance. I really need to have a late afternoon snack on these days because by the time I get home from work I'm ready for a full dinner, but I don't really have enough time to digest it before dropping her off and going for a run.
Anyhow, my husband came along for the run. We had hoped to get in about 5 miles but there is SO many stoplights downtown that we wasted a lot of time waiting. Near the end of our run we just ran down the street a bit waiting for the light to change. I hate having to stop & go. I really don't know how people run downtown Vancouver (or any big city) with all those lights.
We ended up finishing 4.33 miles in about 41 minutes (not incl. wait time). A little bit slow, but we both were a bit off.
Came home and decided to hit up the treadmill to finish off my daily mileage. For some reason when I stepped on the treadmill I felt fantastic and just wanted to keep running. But ... Biggest Loser was coming on and I missed last week. I did another 2.67 miles in 22 minutes. Much better pace (8:22/mi). That gave me 7 miles for the day - WAHOO!
Then, during Biggest Loser I did a few crunches. Was going to do some push-ups & dips too, but got lazy. Ehhh, what can I say, I'm human!
I'm going to mention again how HELPFUL food prep has been for me. This morning I slept 1 hour past my alarm. I usually allow myself plenty of time in the morning as that's my favourite time to do household chores. But this put me in a bit of a crunch. It was so nice to have some things prepared in the fridge that I could just grab and go. No having to resort to take-out or frozen meals!!
I leave you with a picture I did happen to have from my daughter's dance comp the other day. (At least I have something to share)
Have a fantastic day!
