Monday's Run a Fail, Which Makes Tuesday a

Success!!!  I had 5 miles on schedule for yesterday.  Since it was raining when I woke up, I of course opted out of going to the gym and hitting the treadmill and decided to sleep in and make them up after work.  Well that was a complete fail.  Instead I cleaned my kitchen and spent way to much money at the Dollar Store.  How come you only go in that place for small items and end up buying half the store.  It's crazy.

So now that my kitchen and living room smell like apples (yum), I decided to skip spin and get my 5 miles in this morning.  It was still dark out at 6:15 but I figured the sun would be coming up shortly and I set off.  It was still humid as all get out but overall it was a very awesome run.

Here's the low down of how the run looked:
Mile 1 - 9:16
Mile 2 - 8:49
Mile 3 - 8:54
Mile 4 - 8:40
Mile 5 - 8:41
Total time: 44:24
Total miles 5
Calories burned: 505

I have a question for ya, and I'm letting you guys decide my Saturday morning fate (choose wisely).  This Saturday my schedule calls for 4 miles.  Next Saturday I have on tap 10 miles but I'm racing in a 10.5k.  I was thinking of just changing the weekends around and doing the 10 miles this week and then just using the 6.2 miles as this Saturday's run.  Let me know in the comments section what I should do and I'll let everyone know just as soon as I either decide or you guys decide for me. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday, I'm off to get ready for ab class.  Since I haven't gone since last Tuesday I'm feeling a little flabby in the ab department and so need this class.



  1. I think if you want to switch around your weekends that would work or you could go for a nice 3 mile cool down after your race to keep your mileage on track, think of it as a long run with a little tempo thrown in. :)

  2. I actually thought of doing that. I just might, I haven't completely decided. Decisions, decisions.

  3. Nice job on the 5! I would probably keep the weekends as is and add a longer warm up/cool down to the race to get to 10 total.
