Where’d Last week go?

Wow I am great at being consistent about posting aren’t I 🙂  I have good reason for not posting in a week though, the past week has been CRAZY.  I don’t know how to explain everything in a way that won’t bore you to tears I’ll keep it short and sweet.  Here is what I’ve been up to:

1 – Running outside Monday morning before the sun came up = awesome and eye opening.  I am realizing how much slower I am outside than on the treadmill, and how nice it is to run outside!!  This got me more excited to run and also filled me with self doubt whenever I would read another running blog about all you speed demons out there.  Had to re-group and realize I am doing this for ME not to win a race or impress anyone.

2 – Worked like a mad woman all week long. Quarter closing for corporate finance is the equivalent of tax time for accountants = lots of stress, excel, and no time at home 🙁

3 – Running & strength training or spin class every day before work – Jeff started going to the gym with me in the morning which is helping me to not flake!  And now I can get more miles each week.  After Monday, it rained every morning so I stuck to the treadmill and added an incline to help make it feel more like I was running outside.  It worked, although made me much slower as I suspected.  But it’s OK – I’ll get better if I make it better!

4 – Was getting ready all week to go to New Jersey for my BFFFFF Jess & Nick’s wedding!!! Was the funnest weekend ever and we got to spend it with these crazy kids.  Couldn’t have imagined a better day for them 🙂 They had a rehearsal on Friday and then the wedding on Saturday night in NY.  It was raining a little that day but cleared up just in time for the ceremony.

Me & Jeff!

So all in all, it was a busier week than normal but overall a good one.  Spending so many hours at work isn’t ideal but it’s a necessary evil right now (we do have to pay bills every once in a while 😉 ) Learned a little more about my running, and it ended with a great weekend with all of my favorite people.

Do you run slower or faster on the treadmill than on the road?

Did you do anything fun this weekend?

What’s the funnest wedding you’ve been to?

    The wedding sounds so fun! Great job on your consistent workouts. I haven’t been on a treadmill in almost a year, since moving to Texas where it’s much easier to run outside year round. 🙂 But typically, I think I was a little slower on the treadmill.

      Thanks! I need to take a page out of your book, I can run outside year round (as long as it’s really early in the day during the summer before it gets to hot) and yet I find myself on the treadmill more times than not.
