Running With Gaga

Another outdoor run success!  Yaaieeee.  I attribute it to…

  • running at an embarrassingly slow pace  :)
  • crisp cool weather
  • quiet day on the trail
  • a couple days of rest
  • Lady Gaga at the beginning of my playlist

Today I bumped up to 4km.  Including walking warm-up, walking cool-down, stretching, and the run I was back in the car in under 40 minutes (approximate based on iPod).  I’m soooo pleased!

Before I headed off, I had my half-caf

And an Amazing Grass smoothie

In the blender today:  frozen blueberries, 1/2 banana, 8 oz vanilla Almond Breeze, splash water, Amazing Grass Chocolate Infusion Amazing Meal

Another deeeeeeelish winner!

After my run I added on a few pushups, crunches, and squats…the chowed down the last two Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins…I was shaking I was so hungry!

Now I’m off for a quick doctor’s appointment…then tonight sushi and Nova Scotia Symphony with Angie and Lynn.  Fun!

Today’s to-do list is short due to being out of the house a lot…

Whoot!! Good job on the 4K. Music always does it for me too. Sometimes when I think I can't run any further, a great song comes on and my energy is back.

Cya in a few.

You're doing great! I found that the "embarassingly slow pace" was key for me when I first started trying to run outdoors. Honestly, I'm still embarassingly slow, but who cares! It's a great accomplishment!!

Great job girlie! No such thing as an embarrassing slow pace at all. Or at least that's what I tell myself! lol

Music makes ALL the difference in outdoor runs :-)

ok, the fact that there are no bloggies to get together with in cowtown is really starting to get annoying when I hear about all the fun you girls are having, wanna move?

Yay for a good run! I have Beautiful, Dirty, Rich and Just Dance on my shuffle for running. :)

I'm so excited: we finally got Honeycrisp apples here.... happy dance!
