Good morning everyone!
This morning began with a fun, record-breaking run.
Workout: I wanted to make my run quick and dirty this morning. The ever-lasting rain from the weekend is spilling into this week, so I knew I needed to be fast, or risk getting rained on. I didn’t move much from my couch over the weekend thanks to the rain, but I was feeling refreshed and ready to run this morning! I switched on my new playlist I put together over the weekend, and headed out the door. Goal: Run 1 mile as fast as I could. Outcome: Pretty good. 🙂 I cut my run short by just 0.17 of a mile, but still came out looking pretty good.
- 0.83 miles
- 8:31 minutes
- 10.17 avg/mi
I’m pretty happy with that, and I broke a record for speed! Woot-woot!
I know it was short, but I was spent and out of breath and decided to end it there. I am planning on a 5K walk/run on Wednesday- fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!
Before I move on, I wanted to share my latest running playlist with you-

Breakfast: Breakfast was a ‘baked’ pear waffle. I am hooked on microwaving my pears now. It’s such a fast, sure-fire way to make them soft, warm, and delicious. Especially when they are sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar. I omitted the bit of butter I used last time, and they were just as delish.
This Bosc is Boss.
My weekend was kind of a wash. Literally, awash with all of the rain.
After spending Friday night at home, I took the girls up to my mom’s house Saturday evening, and after eating Chinese together, we all headed over to a nearby Honda dealership to look at new CRV’s for my mom. I haven’t mentioned it, but she was in a car accident recently(a lady ran a red light going extremely fast)and my mom’s car was totaled. She wasn’t hurt, thank goodness, but her poor car that was nearly paid off, certainly was. 😦 We had a nice time checking out all of the shiny new SUV’s, and then headed back to mom’s for a movie. World War Z was definitely a win in my book! I loved the fast pace of the movie; it had me on the edge of my seat through the whole story- loved it. Plus, I am reading Warm Bodies right now, so anything zombie related, is right up my alley. 😉
The girls ended up staying the night, so I had a full night, and much of Sunday, in a gloriously quiet house! Ahhhhh.
- What did you do over the weekend?
Have a great Monday!
