Breakfast was my usual Honey Bunches of Oats & 2% milk at around 8:40. I had a snack of half of a Kashi dark mocha & almond granola bar at 10:45, and I didn't eat lunch until about 1:00 since I still felt full from my breakfast & snack. I made a yummy salad of romaine, celery, carrot, cherry tomatoes, and baby spinach with 2 tbsps of an Italian vinaigrette.
|I used the leftover chicken from last night's|
supper to add some protein to my salad today!
I had another snack of a cup of blueberry Activia at around 3:00 and I finished off the rest of the Kashi granola bar at 5:15 when I left work.
I had to stop at Target on the way home because one of the valve covers on my front bicycle tire is missing! I bought a pack of them, and since Target is Target, I took way too long to get out of there since I did a little shopping. Target is a dangerous place for my wallet. I was able to escape with minimal damage, though. I only bought the valve covers and a couple of head bands for my workouts!
I didn't get home till around 6:45, and I hit my apartment gym at 7. I started out feeling really tired, but after I warmed up after 7 minutes, I decided to run. I put the treadmill at 4.2 mph, and started going...
I RAN FOR 8 MINUTES WITHOUT STOPPING!!!!!
I was SO SO excited!! I ran from 7:04 to 15:15!!!! Looking back, I don't know why I decided 8 minutes was my cut off point to slow down back to 3.6 mph, but it was another smiling time on the treadmill this evening. I took a 9 minute "break" by powerwalking at 3.8 mph, and sped up the treadmill to 4.3 mph at 24:00 and ran for another 2 minutes to 26:00. 10 MINUTES TOTAL RUNNING. I powerwalked for another 4 minutes at 3.6 mph and 3.8 mph and ran AGAIN from 30:00 to 34:00! 14 MINUTES TOTAL RUNNING. I took another short break and ran ANOTHER 2 minutes from 38:00 to 40:15. BAM. 16 (ish) MINUTES TOTAL RUNNING!
|Woo to the Hoo!|
I was not that hungry after my cardio workout, so I had a HUGE banana and some Kefir.
|This banana was as long as my forearm. No lie.|
