Ordered and Ready to Go!

For starters lets go way back to Saturday for my 20 miler.  I was supposed to come in at a 9 min mile, I failed once again and came in at 8:46.  You might be thinking woohoo this is great but really that is not great, the whole purpose of the Run Less Run Faster Plan is to try to stay as close to the numbers as possible.  Anyways it was hard and I was tired by mile 15 I wasn't really sure I wanted to finish and mile 17 was really quite close to death. :)  BUT I made and was so happy to be done.

It has been raining like crazy here so I just did P90X Monday and was able to hit the track today.  My workout...

10 min warm up
3x 1600m at 7:02 pace (6:59,7:00,7:02)
I was supposed to do a 1 min RI but that was not happening so..
I walked 200m. This is way better and allows me to fully recover.
10 min cool down.

So guess What?!?! Remember how I was saying I was the weak link and couldn't even do 1 pull up?  Well since then I got my 10 pounders out and have been working on my biceps and today after my workout I was thinking that I might just try to do a pull up.  So I walked over and yep I did 1 pull up no prob!  I felt so good after the one that I didn't even want to try for 2 because I didn't want to be a let down.

So I am proud to say that I am back on track!

Ordered Beach Body Insanity and I am ready to work it out!

Last night I went out to eat at Cubana Social with some girlfriends.  It was so good!  Afterward I met up with Scott and we took a little stroll to the end of the pier.  The weather was perfect.

Oh and I couldn't have ended the night without something sweet.  My favorite..... Rainbow Sherbet!

Workouts for the rest of the week.
Wednesday - P90X Back and Biceps
Thursday - Tempo Run, 6 miles with 3 miles at 7:35 pace
Friday - Not sure yet, maybe Tracy Anderson
Saturday - 18 miles at 8:45 pace

  5. Oh I have seen the commercials for Insanity but never know anyone who has tried it, please do a post reviewing it! I have been tempted to buy it but it's a little pricey so I didn't know if I really wanted to do it...
