I should feel like a loser posting here that I didn't do my 8 miles on Saturday like I said I would. I could wallow in self-loathing behavior but I didn't. Today is a new day and I'm jumping right back in. I was scheduled to run 4 miles today but my slacker behavior set in a little and time crunched as I was/am, I was seriously considering just forgetting today's run and running tomorrow. I didn't though! This is the part that I wish my theme music for the day was playing while you read this post..."Gumption" from the movie The Holiday. Love that little tune!

Moving along.....I did my two miles and ran a comfortable pace. Low and behold my two miles looked like this:
Mile 1 - 11:16
Mile 2 - 12:06
Avg Pace - 11:41
Calories - 341
I was so worried that I lost all that I had gained due to my lack of consistency in the running deptartment. I come back even stronger! That and for motivation I wore my Seattle RNR shirt. That really makes me feel too cool for school! I am so jazzed!!! Add that to a 0.9 loss this week and you've got a pretty happy little lady.
I don't know if this is a shameless plug for Cytomax or not but today instead of Nuun I had poured in a Cytomax packet I had stashed in swag bag from Seattle RNR. Hello!?! Delish. Could've been due to the fact that it made me feel like a runner becasue that's what they had for refreshments along the course in Seattle or maybe because it was pretty darn hot and I felt super parched by the end of the run. Either which way, I love it's lemony flavor and I just might have to look into purchasing some more. DELISH! I tell ya!!
So now it's time for some stretching and then off to my last 12 hour night shift for the week. Tomorrow is a 7 miler and maybe a spin class.
