Workout: Ran outside 7.25 miles (69 min) 9:36 pace
I’m almost impressed with my pace there considering I haven’t run over 3 miles at a time in 3 weeks and I’ve been eating low carb for 6 days. Although, it did include Garmin pauses for 4 water fountain breaks, one 2-minute walking break, and one break to move my car out of a no-parking zone.
I have a feeling there will be no PR for the Iron Girl Half Marathon next weekend. I’m pretty sure I had a pity party about this fact during the whole 7.25 miles. Please join my pity party in the comments.
On a positive note, I accomplished several goals this weekend:
1. Did my taxes!
And then I ate ants on a log (for the first time ever) while doing my taxes. Please ignore my stubby Megan Fox thumb. They work just like regular thumbs, thank you.
2. Used my Barnes and Noble Groupon before it expires next week. I bought Book 10 of the Sookie Stackhouse series…
…and Unwind by Neal Shusterman. (Thanks for the recommendation, Michelle!)
If I can stop reading blogs for more than 2 minutes, I just might read those.
3. I joined the rest of the world and saw Black Swan. FINALLY.
I really, really liked it. Natalie Portman SO deserved that Oscar. She was incredible.
I’ve heard and read everywhere that people thought it was a weird movie and I’m gonna have to say…I didn’t think it was weird at all. Especially compared to Darron Arnofsky’s other movies.
Maybe weird is the new normal for me.
4. I mowed the lawn!
And by “I,” I mean the hubs. And by “mowed,” I mean I sat on the couch and did nothing while he slaved in the yard. Big kiss for the hubs.
I know those are all kinda lame goals, but hey, I’m feeling pretty good about them.
On a last note, check out Angie at Kansas Runner in her cute new runner girl charm that she won for my first giveaway.
Thanks for sending in the pic, Angie. Hey, and try not to have the most amazing eyes in the world. You’re making the rest of us look like chumps.
What goal did you accomplish this weekend?
