An ancient treadmill.

The only treadmill available at the gym yesterday was ancient.

Normally, I wouldn’t have an issue with this, but the treadmill’s speed (and probably mileage) was off. It was also frustrating that I could not see the time and mileage at the same time. I really wish I had the Boston Marathon Treadmill now…

I don’t really know how many miles I did and how fast my 800s were, but I ran for 50 minutes and did the following:

1 mile warm up
6 x 800m with 400m active recovery
10 minutes at a 2% incline

I got super sweaty and left high on endorphins… Run success!

Throughout much of my run, I was thinking about this. Chicken salad with grapes on a pretzel roll = heaven.

Once I was finished lunch, I moved on to thinking about dinner. Anybody else always thinking about food? 🙂 I met my parents and Annabelle after work and we headed to Panera Bread. I absolutely love their Autumn Squash soup and wanted to get it before it’s gone next week. I also had the chicken Cobb salad with avocado.

I found this gem a few stores down from Panera and I wanted to buy everything. New Balance has some really cute running apparel and it’s pretty affordable. Hi mom, I’ll be sending my Christmas list soon.

And of course, the night wouldn’t be complete without this.


Happy Friday!

What are you looking forward to this weekend?


  1. What I am looking forward to is going to FLORIDA tomorrow to see my sister for a whole week! Yeah! I think about food constantly! I can relate to that! Definitely! I ran on the treadmill today because I went to the gym this morning to do yoga and really needed to run since I took off yesterday. Have a great weekend Linda!

  2. I am looking forward to a kid-free evening out with my hubby (thanks Nana)!!!
