Quick Morning Update

19 Oct

I’m a little pressed for time this morning, but here are my workout stats from my run this am:

  • Time:  1:00:08
  • Calories:  572 (25% fat)
  • Max Heart Rate:  190bpm (98% max)
  • Average Heart Rate:  167bpm (87% max)

For my running workout this morning I got in about 5.5 miles.  I walked on an incline of 12% for one song and then ran at the speed of 6.6 (9.05 pace) for two songs.  I love running this way as it makes the time go really fast and also gives my hip a rest about every 10 minutes.  When I got home I used a foam roller on my legs to loosen then up for about 5 minutes.  I hadn’t used the foam roller in a while and am so happy I remembered to use it!  I will definitely have to start doing it on a regular basis!

Breakfast today will be peanut butter toast with fresh cantaloupe and a cup of black coffee!

Morning Meditation

Motivation for the Day:  Mexico- only 18 days left to get ultra fit!  : )

Three Things I am Thankful for Today:  1-My legs for pushing my thru my workout this morning  2-  My Husband for always being amazing  3- the mailman who will deliver the new running shoes soon!

Goal for the Day:  Try to reflect my happiness onto others at the gym.  Try and motivate a few people who are looking lost with their workout!  : )

Motivational Quote of the Day:  The secret of the man who is universally interesting is that he is universally interested.  -William Dean Howells

That’s it for now!  See you at lunch!  : )

Since I have no new pics to post, I’ll share a few from our Mexican Fiesta inspired wedding!
