Running around in circles.

I wonder if people think it’s weird that we (runners) choose to brave the elements and run really fast around a circle a bunch of times. We know this as a track workout but some people think this is crazy…and I guess it kind of is. 🙂

Thankfully, the weather was sooo much better than last week and we hit all of our times today.

Today’s Workout

10-20 minute warmup
1000m in 4:09 (we did 4:05)
2000m in 8:38 (we did 8:20)
1000m in 4:09 (we did 4:07)
1000m in 4:09 (we did 4:07)
10-20 minute cool down

With the run to and from the track and one cool down mile on the treadmill, I finished with about 5 miles for the day.
My lunch was chicken salad with grapes on a pretzel roll and side of fruit. If you haven’t tried a pretzel roll, you are really missing out. Please find one ASAP.

I’ve actually been super busy at work lately (crazy, I know), so snack time came before I knew it. My snack time is usually between 4 and 4:30 and it is almost always Greek yogurt with something yummy mixed in. I am in LOVE with Dannon Oikos yogurt and I usually buy strawberry and banana cream. Today’s selection was banana cream with a Hershey kiss mixed in. PS I found the Hershey kiss in my desk drawer and I cannot say how long it may have lived there. 🙂

Dinner was super healthy and delicious but I didn’t get a picture because Annabelle was using my phone to watch Sesame Street on YouTube. She is OBSESSED with Jason Miraz singing “Outdoors”…a song about playing outdoors sung to the tune of his “I’m yours” song.

I think it’s pretty clear what happens after dinner every night. Tonight’s selection was…

Annabelle loves to play with the remote, so it’s best to not get too attached to what’s on TV. We tried the whole take the batteries out of an old remote trick and she wants nothing to do with it unless it actually works. We have a baby genius on our hands.

It’s way past my bedtime, so I’ll see you guys tomorrow!

What was your workout today?

Do you watch much TV?

What time do you usually go to bed?

    Hey Linda! My workout yesterday was to try to catch up to Serge and the gang by doing the 5.1 course rather than the 4.4 course and I caught them in the last leg of the run! I was pushing myself hard to catch up and I did it! That was my speed workout for yesterday! Yeah me! I watch some TV, not much last night though..bedtime was between 9:45. I like to get no less than 7 hours sleep. I didn’t quite make that goal as as I rose this morning at 4:30 to get here at 6:00, so I lost 15 minutes. Tonight I will get 8-9 hours sleep as tomorrow is my AWS day off. :o)

    P.S. While at OC last weekend, my friend and I tried some kind of pretzel roll that had crap meat inside and it was delicious! I also got some bar-b-q wings that were to DIE for! We ate well I must say!

    • Nice run Lisa! Good job running longer than the rest of the gang. Yum, where did you eat in OC?

      • Lisa P. says:

        Linda, I meant to say “crab” meat and not “crap” meat! LOL! We ate at Harrison’s at the inlet (had crabcake sandwich) and at Pickles Pub (food ok–not over the top) and at Tap House on 9th Street (which is where we had the salads, wings, and the pretzel thing)! We did breakfast at Layton’s on 16th Street. They have pretty good food!

  2. I like that workout! I swam today, no running.
    I love TV and used to watch a lot of it, now I don’t have time.

  3. Hey Linda! It really is super crazy that work has been busy lol. It’s not a bad thing when snack time sneaks up on you though, can be quite a nice little surprise :-).

    My workout today unfortunately was just walking around the office. I did decide to walk downstairs from the 3rd floor but the stairs stop at level 2 so I caught the elevator for the last floor. Weird buildings in Australia.

    I wholeheartedly believe that I gave you that Hershey’s Kiss which means that it has been there for at least 8 months. That’s when they’re realllllyyyyy good though, the flavor has had time to settle in and stuff.

    • Hi Matt! You do read my blog! The stairs stop at level 2? What about if there is a fire???? I think you right…that’s an old Hershey kiss but it tasted great!
