Wednesday Morning

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!!


  1. I hate it when I wake up before my alarm!
    The Bagel Company sounds so good right now!

  2. Oh how I wish I could get up before my alarm goes off! It's amazing that you can do that! I'm impressed that you were motivated to run too! I always have good intentions of exercising in the morning, but it never happens! I wish I could borrow your motivation!!!

  3. I wish I was one of those people who could wake up without an alarm, but I like to sleep too much!

  4. I am loving the Shred, too! I was so sore from doing it last week, but I'm happy to say I am now feeling comfortable with it. When I do it tomorrow, I'm planning on trying level 2....cannot wait!

  5. Ahh the Shred!I Finally got past the getting sore part of it. My calves hurt so bad after the first few times. It was insane.

  6. Girl, I so admire your dedication to fitness!!!!!! I really do :)
