Let's talk 10K, boob muscles and Pippa

Saturday's long run was postponed to today. (More about that later)
I ran a 10K (6.2 miles) on the treadmill after work today.
All 6.2 miles in 70 minutes 32 seconds.

I am proud.
I am happy.
I am stoked.
This run tells me I can do 10K despite the lackluster training runs.
This 10K is a little less than a half marathon.
That means I can do a half marathon in October.
Surely, I can. 
I know I can.

Random Weekend and Random Thoughts: 

This weekend was another one spent out cleaning up the yard.
  Me, in PJs, lopping the holly bush, which in reality, had turned into a small holly tree.

At the end of Sunday, we've got a trailer full of yard waste. 
Needless to say, my boob muscles are slightly sore today. 
According to my running journaling on blogger, last year's August 20ish is when mid 60s-degree weather graced us in the mornings.... I am looking forward to that.

Last random thought, I am so interested in Pippa Middleton right now. I am thinking, "How does this girl stay so fit and active?" and MOST importantly, "What does she eats to give her all the energy for her to be active and still have such a good body?"

There you go - weekend and Monday all wrapped up in one post. Resting tomorrow and will run again Wednesday! :) 


  1. Pippa is a triathlete and she and her mom do the Dukan diet. I'm a celeb stalker apparently! Or tlc just aired a show all about Pippa. You can take your pick.

  2. AWESOME 10k!!! I'm so happy for you and of course you can do the half. You did it TWICE before! Piece of cake this time :)
