Pre-Date Post

in All Posts

Hello! I thought I’d post a quickie run summary before our date night (we won’t get home until late).


After work, I went on a nice run.  I was intending to do a 4.0 mile tempo run, but it was so DARK out I couldn’t see my watch to tell whether I was running fast or not.


Plus, Bobbi’s Pile on the Miles challenge was really motivating me tonight!  So, I ended up doing 5.0 miles.


  • Duration: 51 minutes
  • Average Heart Rate: 168 bpm
  • Maximum Heart Rate: 176 bpm
  • Calories Burned: 452


When I came home, I cleaned up and drank a protein smoothie….


It was THUMBS UP! I had 1 cup skim milk with 1 scoop Muscle Milk Light. 🙂


Other Eats


Today’s snacks included….. peanuts!


Two candy cane oreos…. Ahhhh! I need to get these oreos out of my house!


And Grape Nuts + skim milk.


Time to go get ready for our date! I think its time to put on a coat. Even Maggie was wearing a jacket all day long. 🙂


See you!  I’ll post our yummy dinner tomorrow.

    I wish Toby would wear a jacket.

    He just stands around and looks mad when I put him in clothes.

    If memory serves me correctly, you’re in FL, right? If so, quick question–what is the weather usually like there in March? Much better than in MI I’m sure!

    I’m running the Inaugural Disney’s Princess Half Marathon on Mar. 8. I’m already looking for the pefect running outfit, but have no idea what to expect weather-wise.

    Thanks for the help!

    girlrunningaround- oh yay! i am going to be a volunteer for that race (i think). we should meet up! it will be soooo nice in march, like 70 or 75. it won’t be cold at all! and it won’t be too hot, either.

  • girlrunningaround November 22, 2008, 12:10 pm

    Thanks Caitlin. It would be fun to meet, I’m a huge fan. 🙂
