Ran 10 miles yesterday!!!

Monday, April 15, 2013

Happy Monday!!!! Yay! Well I think it's going to be a busy week at work, stupid work. I'm not excited about it at all lately, things just aren't going my way. Whatever, it's been 5 years and barely anything here has gone my way.

Whatever, screw work! I had a great weekend! For once I didn't have anything planned. No events, no dates, no obligations etc.. it was great! The goal for this weekend was to eat healthy/within my WW points. Since I missed my Thursday run because I hit up a wonderful Happy hour with one of my friends, I made myself run those 3 miles after work on Friday. I did intervals for 1.5 miles and ran the rest for what MIGHT be a PR on the treadmill of 35:38.

On Friday night I relaxed and did nothing. I ended up catching up on some shows, doing my scrapbooking online and had a glass of wine with sir Josh. The wine was blackberry wine that we got for $5. It was terrible, too sweet for me and just tasted like juice haha. Josh loved it, weirdo. It also made me SUPER sleepy so I was almost dozing off in my computer chair a few times. For dinner I made an AMAZING breakfast bake. Not the healthiest, but holy crap did it turn out good. Hashed browns, sauteed onion, green/red pepper, sausage, egg, sour cream and some cheese. Plus plenty of spices and seasonings. I usually need ketchup on egg bakes, but nothing needed at alll for this guy! I was pumped since I didn't follow any recipe.

Saturday was Spring Cleaning day. More specifically spring "clean out all the closets and throw sh*t away whilst organizing and combining totes" It turned out great. Took us like 5 hours, but I moved around a lot so there was a small workout for my Saturday. That night my bff came over and we went to pick up Noodles for dinner. I got my favorite Whole grain tuscan linguini with parm chix. it's about 880 calories, but SO good! I didn't eat much that day anyway. I ended up going over my points on Saturday. I had 2 glasses of red wine, a pb twix (not even close to worth it) and had some (okay lots) of cheesy puffs. They were sent from heaven, until I hit the bottom of the bag and they were soaked in grease. Eww.

Dum dum DUMMM SUNDAY! Run 10 mile day. Whew. I was nervous and antzy. I woke up at 8 a.m, ate some egg bake and went back to bed for 2 hours. Woke up, dressed, loosened up and drove to the gym since it was 27 degrees outside. I think Saturday night I was sort of "carbing up" lol. So, I got my water bottle full, found a treadmill, paused it to go pee quick, came back and started running.

My plan was to run 5 miles non-stop, take a break and eat half my banana, run 3 more miles, take a break, and finish the last two. I got through the first 5 miles okay in 60 minutes. I had to stop for a bathroom break- I know wtf right! Refilled my water bottle (#2) and chomped half my banana. I was tired. SO I reset the time since I was going to have to stop at 90 minutes anyway. So I put on another 90 minutes (max time treadmill can go) and started again.

Holy crap this got hard fast. I was only able to get through 1.8 miles before I had to stop and walk. My legs were deadening, I could have chugged a gallon of water, maybe two and my breathing was tough. So I walked for 5 minutes and then started again. I stopped and started a few times. Had to fill up my water bottle again (#3) and cranked out the last .25 mile at 5.5. mph. I can't believe I did it. I ran 10 miles.

I ran T.E.N. EFFING MILES! My time was slower than I hoped- 2:05:25. However, I couldnt ask for more out of myself. I've never had to push myself so hard. When I finished I really just wanted to break down and cry. Not sure why, but I felt like I was utterly exhausted. I filled my water bottle again (#4) and ate the other half of my banana. Cooled down and then stretched like crazy. I've never been so sweaty in my life. Makes sense, der, I burnt ~1500 calories!!

So the rest of the day I felt like I was in a daze. Josh made me a protien shake with milk, I made a roast beef sammich and sat by the fireplace getting warm. I took a hot azz shower, relaxed for 3 minutes. I'm always freezing after I run, is that normal? Then went grocery shopping and came home and took a much needed nap. I woke up, made a pizza, ate half of it and headed over to my BFFs for Mad men and Game of Thrones- Sunday night ritual for us :)

When I got home I gave my boyfriend a little somethin somethin and literally passed out within 1 minute of getting comfortable.

This morning I decided NOT to do my 4 mile run tonight and enjoy some relaxing time. I don't even have to make dinner! Oh sweet joy :)

So this week is probably the first week that I completed ALL of my scheduled runs. Also this week was a successfully healthy week! I am hoping for an amazing weigh in on Wednesday and then possibly hitting the big 100lb lost mark within the next two. It's been a long time coming, but I feel like I'm ready and able to break down whatever barriers and walls I've built up against ONEderland.

This morning I was 203.5, the lowest this year and probably 3rd lowest ever! But Wednesday is the one I will record and keep. So maybe I could be even lower by then!

Everyone have a healthy week and enjoy spring! I know we're going to have like a day of it this week haha.

    10 miles (16k) is AWESOME! I ran it also in my training yesterday, in prep for my half marathon. And I get cold after my long runs as well! Shivery and sleepy. I have a 5k run tonight, and I have to do it! Should shake the stiffness out.

    Enjoy the rest of your day!
