One Foot In Front of the Other

Hey loves!!!!!! Happy Hump Day =)

I have not gone running since January 2nd and decided to go out today for a run since I signed up to do Coogan’s again this year. Can you believe it has been 1 year? Time is seriously flying by…back to my run…

I ignored the fact that it was below 30 degrees and felt like it was in the teens…I even ignored the fact that I had a fever of 102.8 two days ago…I got dressed and headed out the door.

Walking to the park was not that bad but once I started to run, I could feel the cold air hitting my chest and the wind was literally pushing me back. After taking a hiatus of almost 2 months, this was a really hard run. I wanted to quit so many times but I kept repeating “Just one foot in front of the other

Here are my splits:

Mile 1: 11:03

Mile 2: 10:45

Mile 3: 10:46

Average Pace: 11:01

Best Pace: 07:38 min/mi

I ended up running 2.76 Miles in 30 minutes and 20 seconds (and walked an additional 2.14 to and from park)

I am not sure how well I am going to do at Coogan’s but I am going to give it my all and that is all that matters…

After my run, I came home and refueled with a Green Monster made with Spinach, Strawberries, Almond Milk, LMM, and Coffee


Right now I am enjoying this deeeelish bowl of Papa Namaste Paste before I head to work at the gym…


Have a great day loves…

Tomorrow is Namaste Mari’s 2nd Birthday and I will be hosting a giveaway!
