Okay, not as fast I could, but the shoutout to Tiffany is necessary because that song was the first one playing on my MP3 player when I started this morning. And it's one of my lifelong favorites.
I woke up late, for the fourth time this week. And raced to the gym for a quick run. I hate running and I don't know how to do it. BUT, I LOVE the idea of it. I want so badly to call myself a runner. So, the only way to make this a reality, is to give it a good shot!
My goal was to run for 10 minutes, walk for one, run for ten. Instead, I ran for 26! My pace is my biggest weakness. My little legs are incapable of running ten minute miles, I don't know how people do it. BUT, I decided for now to focus on time and distance, and not speed (hoping that when I'm really a runner, the speed will increase). SO, I was thrilled with those 26 minutes and got two miles in during that time! I traded off between feeling like I was going to die to feeling like I could keep going for longer. I probably would have gone for longer if I didn't have to rush to get ready for a meeting.
I was so behind, I only had time to grab two pieces of Ezekial bread and an orange. I had to drive 80 miles to make it to this meeting. I've been dreading it but so far it isn't too bad. I enjoyed my bread, avoided the unhealthy unvegan bagel, and saved my orange for a little bit later.
I also have a beautiful view to enjoy when this meeting gets boring.
I had to go out for lunch with some colleagues, and I was worried about what my choices would be. But, I went with a garden salad with raspberry vinnagrette (on the side!) and had them add avocado and black beans.
It was DELISH!
The meeting is almost over and I will stop at the discount mall on the way home. Maybe I'll find a cute new top for my evening out on Friday!
Oh, this is one of my new favorite blogs! I eventually want to be a triathlete (after I become a runner, it will be my next step) so I am going to stay up-to-date on her posts. She's in the midst of a giveaway, so check it out so you can win!!!
