Freeze Your Thorns Off 5k

For my Friday night after work workout was a ghetto renew dreadmill run. Actually, it wasn't so dreadful as this slog was a 5K and I wanted to be better then my previous 5K attempts of 35 minutes. The Boring Runner has a Freeze Your Thorns Off 5K going on today and I took part in it.

Ghetto Renew had the building surprisingly cool and I didn't sweat as much as I normally do. Maybe because it was 25 degrees outside. Maybe it is because someone figured out how to change the thermostat. I don't know, but it sure was nice!

The pic above is post-run. My hair looks surprisingly good for slogging it out on the treadmill for a half hour. We will just blame it on the bad lighting in the building...

Hooray for me. 3.11 in 33:49. That is like a PR for me. Didn't stop for water, like most 5K's. Did the 1st mile at .5 incline and 4.9 speed. The 2nd mile, I wanted to really push myself and get done and went 5.0 and moved my incline at -3.0. I inched up the speed at 1.25mile to 6.0 and finished the 3rd mile alternating from 7.0 back down to 5.5, with the incline mostly at -3.0 but did do some of it at +0.5.

Foam rolled the ITs and stretched the calves and quads. Home and now sleepytime.

That will probability be all of my running for Friday/Saturday. The BF has his kids this weekend, and I think a few G&T's will be calling my name... I also got 4 movies to watch...

Did you workout today? Any exciting weekend plans?

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
