As I mentioned yesterday, I had a breakfast date with my friends this morning. So I decided to get up early and run before breakfast. I had my alarm set for 7 am and woke up at 6:45! I love when I wake up a little before my alarm. Makes me feel like I definitely got enough sleep and am ready to tackle the day! I haven't been running in the mornings very much lately out of pure laziness. On my days off, I have been waking up, eating breakfast, and being lazy until about 11am and then heading out for my run. This is a new thing I started recently and normally I would get up and do my run right away, especially in the summer months. Anyway, I got up and got ready, and headed out for a 3 miler. I did a different route than I usually do, actually it was a completely new route. It was slightly hilly but not like the one huge hill on my normal route. It was actually a GREAT run. I was speedier than usual with a 9:45 pace. That is really good for me right now, especially to sustain that pace for 3 miles! I think , actually I know, I just do better running in the mornings when I first get up. Always have, always will. Luckily races happen early in the mornings and not late in the day! Ha!
I am pretty sore from doing the Shred for the past couple days and really had to hold back and not do it today since I have soccer tonight! I still am contemplating doing it though! It's so addicting! I can either do it today, or wake up before work and do it tomorrow morning. So those are my options. Now, obviously I don't mind getting up before work and doing it, the only issue with that is I won't get home from my game until 11 or 11:30. So do I sleep or workout?!? Ha ha, decisions, decisions!!
If it would warm up about 10 degrees today I would get out in my yard and do some yard work!! I thought it was supposed to be 70 today so maybe later I can do that. I am going to take Sadie on a nice walk today, she will love that!! Breakfast was at The Bagel Company this morning, and as always was fabulous! I was starving by the time I got there! I had my usual, a wheat bagel with honey walnut cream cheese and coffee. I could eat that every morning!! What is everyone else up to today??
Does anyone have the new Rascal Flatts CD?? I can't wait to get it, might download it from ITunes today!!
