week in review


Most of the time I and other people do weekends in review since we usually blog through the week. I, since I've been absent lately and am trying to start blogging again, thought I'd do a week in review!

What have I been up to this week?

...I've been working out, like usual, and focusing a lot on running faster instead of farther (although I'll talk more on that in a few seconds). I started with the Tone It Up HIIT workouts from SELF Magazine, and since then I've been running at a faster pace. I will always remember the saying, "You have to run fast to run fast." I broke 25 minutes on a treadmill 3.1 on Wednesday and didn't stop there. I ended up running 4 miles at an 8:07 pace.

...Tim and I went to see The Avengers. Have you seen it yet? I really liked it! I'm not really an action movie type of girl, but I actually thought this one was interesting and easy to follow, and it kept me hooked. 

...We mailed out most of our wedding invitations and have already gotten some responses! It's so much fun to check the mail every day to find out who is coming! It's one of the things I look forward to most each day. I'm going to keep them all to remember. We got the invitations from Minted, and I just love them so so much.

...I ordered two new working out tank tops that I am obsessed with from Firedaughter Clothing on etsy.  But don't tell Tim. He said I don't need anymore workout gear. Tell me you don't love these things.
I got the run far run fast in that purple color, but I got the nothing will stop me in black with neon yellow ink. I love that she'll customize them to your request.

I can't wait for them to come!

...Today at school was field day. During the day there was an hour where we could volunteer to run different fun sessions to fill time. I volunteered to do friendship bracelets. Here's the one that I chose to make during the time. The kids had a great time! The tutorial is on the blog Honestly...WTF.

And tomorrow I'm running the Miles for Moffitt 5 miler to raise money for cancer research. My goal is to run faster than an 8:30 pace overall. It's a lofty goal, but I think with the training I've been putting in to speed it's doable. 

Other than that it's a weekend of chores, errands, and just relaxing. I had such a wonderful day today that I'm in a great mood!

Super cute tanks! And good luck with the race! I am torn between increasing speed or distance. I know I can't do both with my return to running. Oy!
