Well I had a pretty fantastic Super Bowl Sunday — what about you?
I started off the day by making a big batch of blueberry quinoa breakfast and got started on the Western Bacon Cheese Ball I was making for our party. Once I got the “ball” formed and set in the fridge, I headed to the gym. I was looking forward to a group long run with some of the MN Ragnar Ambassadors but with the cruise coming up I need to get all the visits to the gym that I can get in.
When I got to the gym, all of the treadmills with the TVs were taken. Luckily, I had predicted this scenario so I brought my iPad with. But the wi-fi must not be strong enough to stream any video…darn — was really looking forward to catching up on Revenge. Oh, and it made for a really, really long seven miles on a treadmill.
Minus a couple of blisters on my toes (still breaking in the new shoes) and some little aches I felt while warming up, the run went really well. I forced myself to take it easy which is much easier to do on a treadmill than outside.
Mile 1 – 10:21
Mile 2 – 10:10
Mile 3 – 10:10
Mile 4 – 10:00
Mile 5 – 9:50
Mile 6 – 9:40
Mile 7 – 9:48
7 miles in 1:09:58 (~9:58 average pace)
Right after I posted that picture on Instagram, the official Pawn Stars account “liked” it. Very strange.
Our Super Bowl party was a success and the game turned out to be pretty good at the end! Oh, and I was too busy stuffing my face to take photos of the rest of the delicious food, but I did manage to take a couple of photos:
Looking forward to a busy week before leaving for Tampa on Friday morning! I’ve got the Tackle the Miles virtual 5K, a pedicure and dinner with a friend, group run at the Metrodome and a much-needed haircut! Anyone else have a super busy week?
