Weekend Round Up

Monday: 1 mile
Tuesday: 1 mile
Wednesday: 1.5 mile in the morning. 0.5 mile in the evening.
Thursday: 1.5 mile in the morning. 0.5 mile in the evening. 
Friday: I probably got burned out with work. I came home and took a good nap and felt like a brand new woman. Totally needed that. 
Saturday: 1 mile at noon. Increased speed by 0.5 for every 0.25 mile. I like doing stuff like that - makes me work a little harder and kinda helps distract me and makes time seem to go by faster.
1 mile in the evening. It was a little slower. 
Sunday: 1 mile. Started at 2.5 mph, increased the speed by 0.1 mph for every 1 minute. 

This Week's Total: 9 miles.

This week is the first week back to work after a wonderful, restful, easy summer break. It is all about getting back into a routine, especially the morning routine with a time constraint. So far, I think I did a fairly nice job of getting my walks done first thing in the morning. Four days out of five weekdays. Not too shabby right? 

I think I could have boost the 0.5 mile in the evenings to 1 mile. I should be doing that. So, I will be working on it this coming week.

I love it that I broke the 8-mile per week this week.  I am going to break the 9-mile mark this coming week.

I have found that 2 miles a day kinda help prevent the rub-buh-dub-dub on my thighs a little. I am going to try and do that this week.

I did some kitchen experiments from the pins I pinned over at Pinterest this week. It has been quite a delicious week.

It says it is Texas Roadhouse rolls. 
I don't know. 
But it is tasty. 

This is crockpot beef and broccoli. 
I added mushrooms and bamboo shoots and sautéed the vegetables separately instead of following the instruction to dunk it into the Crock Pot. 
I am a rebel like that. 

I also did another tasty dish too. 
Crock Pot chicken teriyaki.

How was your week? 
Any new experiments with runs or meals? 
Are y'all getting back to school/work like I am too?
