Dear Friday, I love you ~GMR 😛
I don’t know about you but I am the happiest that the weekend is here. AND the Easter bunny comes this weekend. I hope he hooks a sister up 😉
But first….Ladders. Yesterday I knew I wanted to do speed work but I wasn’t sure what exactly. I texted my mom for some help because I just was not in the mood to think.
My typical go-to speed workouts are either hills, 800’s or mile repeats. Ladders seemed like the perfect mix and I was happy to do something different.
This workout made me bust my buns. Earlier in the day I did a 25 minute strength/cardio circuit including things like squat jump, jump rope and a bazillion push ups. I was pretty weak during that so I didn’t have high hopes for the ladder. I did it on the treadmill so I could control my speed better.
In case you don’t know, 1 mile = 1600m. After every sprint I walked 1/2 mile. When all was said and done I finished 4.5 miles. My mile sprint was completed in 6:40. It was so hard, I am pretty sure my neighbors across the street could hear me huffin and puffin. I was for sure happy with that work out!!! Wanna know my motivation?
someone had a doooonut 😉 Here was my thinking… I didn’t feel like running hard but I knew if I ate a donut I would want to run it off. See… Donuts = Hard runs. I’m a genius.
After I was done I headed to hang with Jbone’s sister. What is Easter without eggs?!
We got our coloring on. The only downfall to coloring 3 dozen eggs? The house smells like a big fart. We couldn’t tell if it was the baybo (M), Lola phantom pooping,
Jbone farting or the eggs. I would say it was a success though! Thanks K for having me over and supplying the eggs and dying stuff!
After work today I plan on getting a good amount of sleep and hydrating…. There is a big Easter Egg hunt at my parents before brunch on Sunday…. that ish is no joke. Ryann Lynn better get her sneakers ready!
