I wanted to run yesterday, but I was too tired. I turned off the alarm and turned over. I got up about an hour and a half later to get ready for work. I wasn't there for long. At 11:30am, we were notified that our branch office was closing effective immediately. Ah, the joys of being in the mortgage industry. Well, that's another story for a different blog all together.
Anywho, today was more challenging, which is to be expected. This session consisted of two intervals of 8min jogging. I sped up the pace because of so many people on the track. There are only two lanes at the Y. You must stay in the inner lane unless you're passing someone. And since I didn't want to slow up the person I was passing, I went a little faster than I would have liked to. And just to clarify, I was passing walkers. I'm not that good. But I am SO proud of myself. There is no point in my life that I've ever jogged for 8min. Hell, I've never jogged for 5min until last week. And honestly, Week 1's 60sec jog was a challenge. It's hard to believe how far I've come. I am confident, but still not sure how I feel about Saturday's 20min jog. I guess I'll just have to get my butt to the track at the crack of dawn so I can have it to myself. I'm so much better at pacing myself when there's not a bunch of people to pass.

Today was a crap food day. I'm a bad girl today. But it's not on purpose.
Snack: Glass of OJ
Pre-run Breakfast: Leftover tofu scramble w/home fries and half English muffin w/soy margarine
Post-run: Tofutti Marry Me Ice Cream bar
Mid-day Snack: Cup of coffee w/a friend (I couldn't turn it down. He grinds his own beans.)
Dinner: General Tso's Tofu w/brown rice (I was shocked it didn't include broccoli. The fu was good though. )
The good thing is that dinner came with some type of marinated cabbage and carrots. And they brought me 2 orange slices when they brought my check. So I had a lil bit of veggies and a lil bit of fruit, but definitely not enough for the day.
