10:45 AM: 4.05-Mile Run (Avg. Pace 9:30 min/mi) – COMPLETED
I woke up late this morning. When I did wake up, I contemplated what workout I was going to get in. FYI, no fun-runs this past weekend with the heat. I opened the training plan I am going to use for this marathon and to my surprise, it’s really a 17-week plan!@%#$@#@% What in the world?!? How did I miss this piece of information. It also reads:
Monday: Run 40-minutes.
So, I packed up my gym bag this morning with all my running gear. I decided to include some products that Pedro’s job gives out. It’s one of their clients.
I knew it was going to be HOT and where I run around town, there’s not much shade. I’ll see how these products go. Supposedly it’s a huge client of theirs, so if I love them, I might get lucky and get them for free.
I won’t lie to you, it’s hot out there. BUT, I can’t complain because it was HOT all weekend and today was not even close to how it was the last few days. I’m pretty sure I’m just not used to running in this weather. I had been just taking my time, picking and choosing when the hell I wanted to run. Hmmm, perhaps that why I’m putting on some weight.
I was so incredibly happy to have turned into the park last minute because this was staring right at me.
I need to remind myself to have some water on my run. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
Anyhow, I am happy that I’m kicking off this marathon training to a good start. I got spoiled from the VT Marathon since Courtney had our training written down for us and both Emma and her always mapped out the runs since we ran in their neck of the woods. Oh well… it’s all up to me now.
On some non-running/training related news, we had quite the busy weekend. Friday I was baking for the engagement party on Saturday.
I also baked regular brownies & a meat lasagna. And yes, I baked in 100-degree weather.
I like this picture because Doug is eating my red velvet cake brownie. HA.
On Sunday, Lili and I woke up and worked out. Then we headed over to the Farmer’s Market.
Ahhh, fresh veggies & fruits.
When we got home, we ate lunch and took a nap. We had a christening to attend at 3.
We got home close to 5 and since we didn’t have desserts, Lili and I ate some red velvet ice-cream.
So guilty. The girl had red lips like she was a drag…
Overall a great weekend. Busy, but good.
I’m looking forward to a nice and quiet week. Big boss will be out a ton and hopefully my boss won’t be too busy.
Anybody else have back-to-back events this past weekend? It’s a handful. On a good note, Lili and I did go shopping on Friday. The highlight of my weekend. HA.
