What in the world?

So today was a 2mi record for me (again with no music). I swear I wasn't trying. For the most part, my thought was, "Let me just get this over with." It was pretty warm and I just wanted to eat my dinner. Also, I ended up running my fastest mile to date at 9:21. Seriously, totally not expected. I'm done with records for the month. My period is due soon. And we all know how everything goes out the window during that time.

As far as push ups go, I tried Week 3 Day 2 just to see if I could make it through. And you know what? I did. I still can't believe that I didn't have any soreness from the other day. I'm sure it will be a different story in a few weeks when I start over doing real push ups. But first, I need to get through Week 3 Day 3. Wish me luck.

Leftover lasagna w/garlic toast (I swear it tastes better every day. I made THE BEST pasta sauce ever.)

Good luck with the pushups!!!

I swear most Italian food - pasta, spagetti, lasgna is always better on day 2. And I even like it cold.

Great job on the pushups. They get harder, I'll tell you that, but who says we have to do it in 6 weeks? And great job on your run. You are getting faster and stronger all the time. I'm guessing the pushups are helping with that too.

Hey, I just found your blog through completerunning and am excited that it looks like you're using the same half marathon training plan I am. You also make me want to steal your meals. Yum.
