Happy Sunday!! It’s been a great weekend so far and I am happy to say that I am going to continue my relaxing theme and just chill out today. Something very cool happened yesterday….. As I said earlier, I wanted to run an 8:00 minute mile. Well, I did…..
One Mile: Average pace 7.53
When I got up yesterday morning, after much needed sleeping in, I went into town with my mom to pick up a few things. I was a bit hungry when we returned so I made me a dark chocolate/green smoothie
I used the following:
- 8 oz of almond milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 tbls of PB2
- 1 tbls dark chocolate cocoa
- 1 vary large handful of spinach
So a little while later I changed into my running gear and headed to the treadmill. I warmed up with a brisk 10 minute walk and then cranked up the speed. I’ll be honest with you, I was a bit nervous to do this. I have never ran at that speed before and I just knew that something bad was going to happen. So I jumped on and it felt great!! About half way in I started to think….whew, this might leave a mark. Before I knew it though, it was over! 7:53!!
About 20 minutes later I needed something to eat….
So good! But, interesting to eat with the braces…
Today is supposed to be just as beautiful as yesterday! So I am about to enjoy some breakfast and start my day with some church.
Have a great day!!
