Well, yesterday was a shitty day. Without really going too much into it, things keep going on at work that make it less and less appealing to be here. I didn’t think it was possible to have them treat us, as contractors, any more unfairly than they already do, but sure enough it is. Needless to say, after an infuriating afternoon at work I was more than ready to burn off some frustration on the treadmill. I’m trying to gradually increase my pace for my runs so that it’s possible for me to run a sub 2 hours half marathon in November, and this is what yesterdays 4 miles looked like.
- Mile 1: 9:22
- Mile 2: 9:22
- Mile 3: 9:05
- Mile 4: 8:34
- 36:23 or a 9:05 pace
Getting faster! To break 2 hours, I need to run a 9:05 pace, so I’m getting on target. There is a 4:30 yoga class at my gym today that I am thinking about trying. I don’t know how good it will be, but I still haven’t bought the Yoga Meltdown DVD and I’m missing it now that it’s gone from Exercise TV.
Despite my good run, I was still in a horrible mood when I got home and decided to treat myself to a cocktail. I made myself a CPK Margarita Pizza for one and a Raspberry vodka and club. Quite a delicious combo for a Monday night.
One of these, but the Margarita version. Although now looking at this, I’m remembering how good the Pesto Chicken one was, yum. After dinner, I also indulged in a glass of wine while I watched The Bachelorette and Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Lifetime movie, The Client List. Both were as entertaining as expected, I can’t believe the season finale of The Bachelorette is in two weeks, I really really really hope she picks Chris L. I love him.
In other news, today is my moms birthday, so Happy Birthday Mom! Yup, 25 years ago I was the best birthday present ever seeing as she was still in the hospital for hers after giving birth to me two days prior.
Well here’s to hoping that Tuesday doesn’t suck as much as Monday did. See ya!
