7:53!

on February 24, 2013

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

Holy Cow!!  

 

 

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… Winking smile 

 

 

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!!
