5.14 miles, Jillian, and spin.

I'm really starting to love Mondays!  My friend Holly met me at 5:30am so we could start out on our 5+ mile run.  Once again I was able to get in a nice "tempo" run, keeping a bit faster pace than I normally run for the whole 5 miles.  I'm very optimistic that doing these faster runs with Holly once a week are going to help me with my marathon pace...at least, I'm hopeful.  After our run, we did the Jillian Michaels 6 pack abs video again, like we did last week, and followed that up with 20 minutes of a core/legs Pilates video and then about 15 additional minutes of legs and core work doing circuits.

As if that wasn't a great enough workout, my husband and I hit up an evening spinning class when we went into town to pick up a few groceries.  Between the continuing and unusual humidity and the high temperatures today, I'm pretty sure I lost at least 5 pounds through sweat! ;)

As for yesterday (Sunday), I took a full rest day.  In the morning we went to church, but in the afternoon I just did this:


So, I didn't get a mile in running, walking or otherwise, but I am still going to keep on with the running streak on all of the other days.  Sometimes a little rest is just as needed as exercise.

    1. Well, Missy...you are a working girl!! :) Seriously, I do feel blessed and appreciate that I am able to devote such a fair amount of time doing what I love. My kids have become so independent that it has liberated me a bit to do "my own thing". And it also helps that my husband and I have the same interest in running and working out so we can combine date nights with more workouts! Haha!
