This morning I went out and ran three 2 mile intervals with a 1 minute rest break in between at my goal half marathon pace, which is about 8 min/miles. Though I may run it a bit slower in two weeks depending on the heat. I did a 1 mile warm up then just as I was getting ready to head into my first interval who shows up in the sky but a crop duster. Oh great, just what I need. So I had to readjust the route I was taking, which was AWAY from him instead of towards.
The first 2 miles felt great, the second two miles I started to get a little hot and on the third I was struggling a little but I held it close to goal pace, okay I stopped for about 15 seconds to try and get the two bugs that flew into the back of my throat out. Yuck
Runninghood you could still win one here soon! Check me out in my pink one!
THIS post over at Discovering the Meaning of Stonehenge today. Thanks to her I decided to do one of my intervals with no shirt on. Okay, I was pretty positive no one was going to see me anyway so I felt pretty safe :) It felt really good to run with no shirt, but I don't think I will make a habit of it.
My lil sis sent some Slovenian goodies with the Superhero capes including eucaluyptis gummies, not good, especially before a run. Thought I was going to barf halfway thru my run. Peanut butter flavored puffs- not bad.
Twinki like things shaped like a bear and stuffed with gooey chocolate, these were a big hit with the kids.
My run. Yay! Survived 5 kids that were 5 and under for 5 hours and now am going to make supper!
Are you going to have a giveaway for some awesome abs? Oh, I have to get those on my own... darn :PReplyDelete
good job on those intervals... hitting your goal pace :) And euro-snacks... YUM!!!! theirs are so much more fun than ours!
can I please have your abs? haha. I feel your pain about the bugs, great run despite the bug problem!ReplyDelete
Nice job on your 2 mile intervals. And, I would take your abs, stretch marks and all!ReplyDelete
That bra is so cute. More than a handful over here, so I'll trust you guys that it works great!
It is a cute bra. Gonna go double-check that I entered the tank giveaway.ReplyDelete
Look at you, nailing your paces. You're going to rock that half.
What did I do great today? Well, as I type I'm downloading a library ebook to a nook (not mine; I wish), and I did a tempo run early this morning at half-marathon pace (a *little* slower than you; 8:35/mile).
stretch marks?? are you kidding...I see ABS and also that you are as tan as me!!! ha ha!!!ReplyDelete
those food items reminds me of stuff I used to eat as a kid that my grand mother would ship from Hungary.
what did I do great...hmmm I ran an extra mile and it was on the TM and it was HILLS today, does that count..?
Nice job on the run!ReplyDelete
Umm, girl, you are crazy ripped! I cannot see the stretch marks you claim to have because I am so distracted by your incredible abs!ReplyDelete
Stretch marks? Sorry, I was busy starring at your awesome abs!ReplyDelete
I'm really intrigued by the handful bra (once I'm done nursing, I'm pretty sure that's all I'll have left!)
lovely six pack!ReplyDelete
I love trying junk food from other countries!ReplyDelete
Nice abs! I'd love to have those. The bra is cute, but I've got a bit more than a handful LOL.
I have sucked down way to many bugs on the bike and when running before. It's no fun!ReplyDelete
Can I just say - hello abs??? Trying to give EMZ a run for her money? :)
Add me to the list of wanting your abs!! :)ReplyDelete
Nice abs. You are ripped like Jesus' girlfriend. :)ReplyDelete
Um I want that braReplyDelete
and those abs
and that back
and that food.
You are a smokeshow.
Stretch marks? Are you kidding me!?! Look at those abs! You're a machine.ReplyDelete
Seriously? If I had your abs I would always run with my shirt off! I think that I ned to order me one of those bras :)ReplyDelete
You look amazing, girl...I see no stretch marks!!! :0) Yum...the goodies sound delicious!ReplyDelete
I'm a new following and fellow runner (although compare to your speed I look like a turtle) thinking of doing a half in the fall. I'm up to only 6miles right now at a pace of just under 9mins although just finishing will be good enough. I run5k for speed.ReplyDelete
Fabulous abs -can't see a stretch mark anywhere!!
Awesome job on the workout!ReplyDelete
Awesome abs and an amazing back totally rule out any stetch marks that my eyes DID NOT see!!
I have no idea what the tattoo is of. My guess will be a runner carrying a torch. I am only guessing this because you love to run and the tip looks like a torch. Am I a winner?!? LOL!
Your son in that cape is precious!
So I think we're all in agreement in that you are ripped. Is that a running by-product or do you do weights and stuff too?ReplyDelete
Because I wanna grow up and be just like you.
BTW, love the pink bra! I'm needed some new workout bras, so excited to try that kind!
Thanks for following me! I'm now following you! :) Great job on the run!ReplyDelete
Ok.. holy hell, can I have your abs please?ReplyDelete
Seriously, thank you for finding me so I could have the pleasure of finding YOU!
The abs are astounding, the bra is to die for, and that Superman cape needs to be mine LOL!
Can I win your abs rather than the bra?!?!!ReplyDelete
Awesome workout and um teach me your secrets right this second. Your body is freaking hot.ReplyDelete
Wow seriously impressive!!

You look awesome! Hey, I just started taking Roctane a few weeks ago. I have terrible stomach issues, so I tend to run on Gatorade. I love Roctane, I feel so much better on it and when I combine it with the Gu Brew Tablets (isn't teh peach tea yummy). I feel amazing! I didn't think it tasted bad at all, but I do the Pineapple, the cherry lime and the orange vanilla. I don't think that blueberry would taste good.ReplyDelete
i agree with many others, I would take your abs any day.ReplyDelete
that is an awesome workout!! I have been doing tempo runs, but need to do some long intervals like that
Come visit me in Slovenia and you can eat all the ketchup flavored chips you want!! Love the picture of your lil' Superman.ReplyDelete
Stretch marks?!? All I see are rock-hard abs... And I'm jealous :)ReplyDelete
I don't mind the vanilla-orange roctane. Blueberry-pomegranate is Ok. Pineapple, blech!!
dang girl u are CUT!! ummm, no need to ever run with a shirt on when u've got abs like that. :)ReplyDelete
way to go with those 2milers, ummm, that stinks about the crop duster though! i've never had to dodge one of those babies, i can imagine that doesn't do the air quality any favors when it comes to ur running.
haha...i luv weird foods, my friend back in HS was always bringing in things her cousins in japan would send her...lots of fun stuff! enjoy the treats and have a great day!
Girl, you have some amazing abs! Awesome job on the intervals!ReplyDelete
Those intervals went really well! Nice work! I love your skirt too!ReplyDelete
Crop duster....nooooooo!!! We get helicopter sprayers, but not often.
Girl! Your abs are AMAZING!! And 5 kids under 5? Whew...glad you made it. :)ReplyDelete
I love all the foreign food! They have some strange stuff overseas...ReplyDelete
I can't decide what I am more jealous of, your abs, your back muscles or the superman capes!
And your dog is beautiful. :) I'm sure I've said that before. I have a thing for red headed herding dogs :)
**swoon** over those abs!! How on earth do you still have such an awesome figure after having a baby?! Stunned :DReplyDelete
I am so jealous of those abs it's not even funny. What is your tattoo??ReplyDelete
Your abs are SICK! You make Gwen Stefani look obese! I want all these weird foreign goodies, except the ketchup flavored stuff.ReplyDelete
I kept meaning to post all day - I was hoping your abs would come with the tank?! So. Jealous.ReplyDelete
Do the abs come with the bra? Please?ReplyDelete
You should always run shirtless. I mean, like EVERYONE else has said - your abs are amazing. Show em off!ReplyDelete
