Ooops I did it again

Pins from Ittybitsofbalance
The dreaded Thursday night run went well. I don't know why I hate running on this day but I do. I was doing my usual browsing on Pinterst when I found this beginner interval workout. Sure I could have made it up on my own, but I wrote it down and decided to do it three times.  I figured that it would give me plenty of time to complete the 4 miles my plan calls for with out getting just mindlessly running on the treadmill.
  • Round One - I followed the plan perfectly and after 20 minutes I ran 1.51 miles
  • Round Two - I bumped the 3-3.5 up to 4mph  and I completed 1.63 miles
  • Round Three - I just ran and completed my last mile in 13 minutes
Total distance 4.1 miles in 53 minutes over all it was a good run and I may try it again when I have just a plan easy run scheduled.

This morning I got up and went to Spin. I don't normally go to Spin class on Friday's but I was motivated this morning to go.  Of course I remembered once I was there why I don't like Friday morning. The instructor is the "quote lady".....I got my fill of motivational quotes pretty quick. We have a busy Saturday and I didn't know if I was going to be able to get to my class on Saturday so I figured I would double up today or maybe just run tomorrow. 

Tomorrow we are going to see Disney on Ice with my daughter and my Dad. A parenting first, I have never been to one of these kids shows and I can't wait to share the excitement with her. After that we have Parent's Night Out, nothing better then a date night with the husband. I still don't know what we are going to do but I am thinking a movie that is not rated G is in our future.  Any movie recommendations out there? Sunday I have 5 miles on the plan, I am thankful for a shorter long run day. The weather report says high of 44 and 30% chance of rain. Looks like a perfect day to head outside for a run.

Day 4 of Thankfulness - I am thankful for great buyers on Craigslist. The person who says they want it, show up and pay the price you asked instead of trying to negotiate at the last minute. Thank you awesome Craigslist buyer.

  1. great job on your run!! and have a blast at Disney on Ice...that was always one of my favorite things when I was little :)

  2. The Ides of March and The Big Year were on our radar last weekend. I would have gone to The Big Year, but instead we stayed home and watched Hall Pass. A good movie to watch when you don't have to pay for it, haha.

    I love step back weeks, when the long run is 5 it.

  3. This is day simply great!

    The kiddos have the day off and are actually playing together with out fighting!

    I just got back from buying a new pair of running shoes! (And my fav(s) were even on SALE)

    And I just read I won...woohoo...I am thinking I should go buy a lottery ticket or something. (ha!)


  4. Good job on your run!! I've been wanting to try a Spin class.

    I'd love to see Disney on Ice, hope you all have a great time!

  5. Pinterest is full of great finds! I love that place! I haven't used Craigslist yet but I have heard great things about it.

  6. Leave it to Pinterest to have what you need! Great interval workout. Intervals are the one thing I need to add to my marathon training for next year.

    I love spinning for cross training!

  7. i'm going to try that chart..thanks for sharing!!

    i have a 2 year old son so one of those parenting things will come soon! LOL

    I have a real love/dislike thing going on with CL... sometimes I feel totally in the groove and other times people just really annoy me. Right now I am on a self-imposed CL hiatus :P

  9. I've always wanted to go to a Disney on Ice show-hope you all had a great time!
