Fast and furious

If I didn’t knew better I would have thought it was winter all over again when I stepped outside this morning to send the kids off to school. I guess this is the ind of days when you are happy you actually have a gym membership because running outside in wind, rain and cold is never appealing. When I came into to lifetime fitness I thought I would give it a try to see how long of a distance I could run in an hour. The thing was that my hamstring was about as tight as they come after the kick as workout from yesterday. After running two miles in a decent tempo my legs had it but I managed to push myself for another 2.3 miles before I gave in and gave them a 7 minutes rest. The last 10 minutes of my cardio I did a sprint interval at a speed of 10.5 30 sec on and 30 sec off and when I was done I was finished!

After I picked Mira up from school we went to an old friend of mine for lunch and a good long chat while Mira was playing with the cuties Maltese puppy!

And now we waaaaaant one 😉

  1. where are you? I’m in Wisconsin…and it’s been really rainy the past few days—then finally stopped raining yesterday but the tems were in the 40’s. And we have a frost advisory tonight! Ugh….Hello, summer? Where’s summer?

    • Hey there…I’m in the north suburbs of Chicago. Don’t think we had any frost as we are fairly close to the lake but this weather is crazy, the low 60th one day and then 75 and muggy the next…Let’s hope the warm weather is here to stay this time around!
