Goooooood morning! I’m back in D.C. and continuing to enjoy my vacation! If you’re just tuning in, I’m getting my Masters of Public Health in Nutrition at UNC-Chapel Hill to become a Registered Dietitian; we just finished up a crazy busy summer filled with class and our first dietetic internship. I’m on break for a couple weeks now before starting up year #2 of class! It’s very nice to have a breather :)
This morning started with a fantastic early a.m. 5 mile run with my dad and some friends.
This is why I love running with other people — there’s no way I would have done that on my own, especially since my running has fallen off this summer due to the crazy heat. It feels nice to get back into it and push myself again with speed and distance :) I can’t wait for fall running weather!
- Mile 1: 8:27
- Mile 2: 9:15
- Mile 3: 9:12
- Mile 4: 9:10
- Mile 5: 9:02
- 0.1 nub: 8:32 pace
Our overall average pace was 9:01. Not too shabby! My dad is a really fast runner; I stuck with him for the first mile and then quickly got left in the dust when he kicked it into overdrive, hehe. Considering I ran 6 miles on Sunday and 4 miles yesterday, I was pretty impressed with myself! Definitely taking the day off from running tomorrow :)
I ran in the t-shirt I got from my first triathlon — isn’t it cute? It’s one of the nice wicking technical shirts.
The proceeds apparently went to a local church, hence the bible quote.
I also tried out a new sports bra from Lululemon! I love the back:
I got a black one, too. It’s SUPER comfy and fits really well, too! Just what I was looking for. My other sports bras are starting to get pretty gross, which makes sense considering they’re all from like 2005. It was definitely time for some new ones ;)
I’m off to meet Matt for lunch down near his office — have a wonderful day, friends!
How are you fitting in exercise today?
