Another PR!!

I got up nice and early this morning to get ready to head out to my long run. I ate the last 1/2 of my Power Bar and got dressed. I wore my Bondi Band and my Road ID, along with my usual stuff (MP3, and Garmin). The Road ID didn't bother me at all. I didn't even notice it. It was like I wasn't wearing anything.

I drove to the local park and started my 5 1/2 mile run. I really wanted to beat my last time of 1:04. I just tried to keep a steady pace. I succeeded. I sprinted the last 3/4 mile. I beat my best time (ever)! I finished in 57:16. Such a kick ass time (for me)! I'm so happy with myself.

When I got home, I showered and started the coffee and on went the compression socks. I enjoyed my left over quiche while I caught up on my dvr. A few hours later, I was once again hungry. I munched on some grapes while we finished Repo Men (we fell asleep last night, that much food will do that to you).

For lunch I had PB&J with home made french fries. I just peeled and cut up 2 potatoes, tossed them in olive oil with some salt and baked for about 20 minutes (tossing about every 10 minutes). They are so good. Some came out crispy (the thinner ones) and the thicker ones came out nice and fluffy.

I had a couple of cookies for a snack later in the afternoon. Tonight's dinner was left over chicken with fennel cream sauce. Hubby loved the meal. He thought it was better than anything we tried last night. I know I'm a good cook (lol). Time to clean up the kitchen and get ready for tomorrow. Man, I don't want to go to work tomorrow. I say everyone takes a long weekend (I wish)!!!


  1. Awesome job on the 5.5 mile run! I love it when I have runs like that where everything just seems to be on:) Keep it up!

  2. Breaking an hour - congrats on the great PR!

  3. What a huge improvement! Way to go!!!

  4. Those French fries look like they came from a restaurant...I am going to have to try to fix those myself!!! Yum!

  5. Congrats on the training PR!!! I really need to keep track of these more often than I do. (e.g. I ran a 10k today that was faster than my current race pr!)
