Feel the Burn

Yesterday, the dogs and I went two miles FAST. Ok, not like sprinting fast, but fast enough. Every time I felt like slowing down, I'd increase the pace. I had layered up since it was cold outside, but I found myself creatively stripping layers off without breaking stride because I got so warm.

I woke up sore this morning. Win! Then I went to pilates, and my entire diaphragm threatens to burn tomorrow. The thing I am most proud of is my food consumption.

Yesterday, I wanted Mcdonald's Chicken Nuggets. I have random cravings for them. Not sure why. Instead of going to Mcd's, I bought Izzy some stuff on smartpak (which cost way more than chicken nuggets), then went home and made myself a grilled chicken salad. So yummy.

I'm doing better on my goals: I have been running nearly every morning that I've been healthy enough. I did not do intervals because it keeps raining/misting and freezing, which results in a thin sheet of ice covering everything and making the footing downright dangerous. I have a water bottle, but it's metal, and when I washed it, an oily substance came out. That scared me, so I haven't used it.

New goals:
1) Intervals once a week
2) Double my long distance to 4 miles
3) Get water bottle

What are the rest of you up to?


  1. Nothing sadly :( My only exercise is walking on campus and I am now sick [gross] so working out is out of the question for a few more days. I've felt pretty down in the dumps this week and on top of a pile of HW, getting to the gym was....hard.
    I've been eating pretty ok though :)
    sounds like you have a win for the week!

  2. Great job!! I've had that problem with water bottles. Ick. Keep up the good work!

  3. Good job and keep it up!

  4. I'm a lurker... came from D's Mom's blog. Here's my favorite water bottle: I try to drink two bottle's worth in a day. Between that and riding five horses this weekend I think that's as much exercise as I get!
