Nov 10, 2010...3 mile tempo run-28:00....temp 56 with 8 mph winds....gear: thin LS shirt, tank top, shorts, music, hydration belt
Beautiful morning. I love getting up a little earlier now that we have more light in the morning. Started my run around 6:50.
The first mile (which was my warm up mile) felt pretty sluggish. I picked up the pace for a fast tempo for the 2nd mile and could NOT believe that I ran it in 8:15! I backed the pace down again for 2 minutes and then picked it up back up a little and ran the last mile in 8:45....so it went down like this:
0-1 mile: 11:00 (warm up)
1-2 mile: 19:15 then slowed way down for 2 minutes until 21:15
2-3 mile: 28:00
It felt great to push it a little harder today.
I haven't done any ab work or weights this week. I think I either slept wrong sunday night or tweaked something in my neck and upper back and it bothered me enough the beginning of the week that I didnt want to risk it hurting more.
However I think I am ok enough to start up again tomorrow.
So, here was my breakfast this morning. I am NOT a breakfast foods kind of gal. Give me a big bowl of chili over eggs and waffles anyday =)
This is some teriyaki asian stirfry I made. Super easy.
Dice boneless skinless chicken breast and cook until done. Remove from pan. Add 1-2tbps of oil to hot pan and add bag of frozen asian stir-fry veggies. Cook about 8minutes (less if you want your veggies more crisp-I like mine REALLY tender). Add chicken back to pan and as much teriyaki sauce as you like (I usually use a little less than a 1/2 of a cup).
Serve over rice.
