I did 4 miles at a 7:47 pace. Felt pretty good. and it was super nice out I got to run in a skirt. Feels so good to get out of the tights!
Saturday was perfect weather, and I do mean PERFECT. It was a sunny, barely a breeze and in the low 40s. My sister and I were able to get in a run together. I really only had 6 or 7 planned and she had her long run. I think she was shooting for 9. It was so super nice out we ended up doing 10.5.
We did a loop we hadn't done before. The first five miles were all gradual uphill with one very serious hill and then it was pretty easy sailing from there.
These pictures were taken at the top of the big ass hill. We needed a breather moment, my quads and glutes were cramping from the hill. It was a perfect photo op. We should have done full body pics because we were very colorful. I had on lime green compression socks and she had on bright purple shoes.
We decided if we were holidays I was Christmas and she was Easter.
The view from the top.
I also got these in the mail on Friday. I don't really like working out to DVDs, but I really like her workouts, so I have no doubt that I will watch them, write down the moves and do it on my own.
12 workouts, plus a bonus abs routine. I thought it was a pretty good deal for under twenty dollars including shipping. I am going to do the first one this morning. I think it has a lot of burpees in it. Hmmm. All the workouts are body weight, which I LOVE.
I am still eating Paleo/Primal but I do admit to indulging in a piece of dark chocolate cake that was heavenly Friday night.
That run sounds awesome. SisterRuns are the best. Gorgeous views, too!ReplyDelete
lol. I don't ever find all the porn-disguised-as-workouts you manage to dig up. Sounds like a great deal, though. I'm curious too see if they're decent for you.
Love it when a run is going so great you make it longer than planned!ReplyDelete
Yes, we're having great weather too! I had a really nice long run yesterday with a group, and also went further than I planned. It's weird to hear everyone talking about the cold back east. I'm sure our turn will come.ReplyDelete
Your view is so beautiful! Glad you and your sister got out together for a nice long run and that your weather is cooperating.ReplyDelete
I love runs that are uphill at the beginning and then get easier. Wow, that weather sounds superb!ReplyDelete
oh my gosh, that view is amazing! Sounds like perfection all the way around - sister time, good run, good weather, and pretty views. Love it!ReplyDelete
Our weather has been all over the place lately, giving me some unexpected days of gorgeous running weather. I take each one with a smile!ReplyDelete
I would love to see the bonus abs edition! I am always looking for new things to add to my core workout.ReplyDelete
I can't believe it was 40 degrees! We finally hit 32 degrees over the weekend. Nice heat wave from the 13-19 degree range we have had for a couple of weeks.
How cool that you get to run with your sister. And even cooler that you ran longer then planned! Love when that happens.ReplyDelete
You are so fortunate to be able to run with your sister!! And the view from the top was breathtaking!!ReplyDelete
yay for sister runs! and for runs that you actually feel like going longer than you plan!ReplyDelete
What a great run! Love the view and the sun. We haven't seen the sun here in a really long time ugh!ReplyDelete
you HAVE to let me know how you like the ZCUT vids. I havent done a ZWOW in a while (changing that this week) but I never bought the new vids. I wanted some reviews first :) Nice Run too!!!!ReplyDelete
That long run with your sister sounds awesome. The view from the top of that hill is absolutely gorgeous. Glad you've had some nice days for running here lately.ReplyDelete
I envy your weather! I had to run super early today because it's snowy and icy now! I'm sitting in front of my space heater wearing a million layers!ReplyDelete
