Eggos and Ambition

I started off this lovely Monday with a big breakfast of fuel:

2 multigrain Eggos and a sliced up granny smith apple.. YUM.

I needed a good amount of fuel before heading to class because I am feeling ambitious today. I never got around to completing my long run, after a busy busy weekend, so todays the day, and then some.

I’m planning on cranking out 10 treadmill miles after class this morning, which is something  haven’t done in a while. I always seem to get really bored after running anything over 5 miles on a treadmill…

..so this should be a challenge.

Off to class… wish me luck!

Tell Me: What are your tips/tricks for getting through a long treadmill run?

Treadmill Slump

Today started out a trek through the snow for an early trip to the gym!

It has been snowing nonstop, so I made sure to bundle up!!

Andy, Lily and I will be heading out on the road again around noon today, so I wanted to make sure to squeeze a quick workout in before we left!

We’re headed to Milwaukee, because my dad got me tickets to see the Milwaukee Bucks vs Miami Heat game tonight!! To say that I am a little bit excited would be the understatement of the century.

I wanted to get right into running on the treadmill, but I just wasn’t feeling it today. So I did what I usually do when I’m in a “treadmill slump”, I turned to one of my favorite walking workouts to crank out before I even attempted to run.

I chose one of my go-to walking workouts, Ashley’s Walk It Off Intermediate Treadmill Workout!

This workout can also be found in my Favorite Treadmill Workouts post. As usual, it got my blood pumping and thighs working, while waking me up in the process! Love it, thanks Ashley!

Once I got moving, I set off to complete another one of my favorite workouts, Julie’s Lazy Girl Workout. It just seemed fitting today 😉

It might say lazy girl, but don’t be fooled, it only starts slow. By the end of the workout, I was a sweaty mess! Thanks Julie!

Now it’s time for a shower before we’re off to Milwaukee!!

My half marathon training plan calls for a 6 mile long run, so I’m planning on completing the 3 remaining miles at the hotel gym today. I’ll be back with a holiday recap once we’re there!

Tell me: What are your plans for the weekend?
