A progressive run

I started off my day yet again with Jillian’s 30 Day Shred level 1. I think I mentioned it, but I am planning on doing it for 30 days (going up a level every 10 days) to see where I get. Today was day 4 and I wasn’t feeling as sore. The push ups were a little easier today, too.

Then I went to work and ended up wearing out my legs a fair amount. I spent most of the day on my feet walking around in steel toe boots, which are pretty heavy. They’re at least heavier than the flats I normally wear. There was a lot of climbing stairs, ladders, and ducking under stuff while walking and my legs were feeling it when I got home.

I was planning on a 4 mile progressive run today and even though my legs were feeling worn out I still wanted to stick to the plan. I started out with a 10:26 first mile, then picked it up and ran 9:46, 9:31, and 8:56. It was a tough run, but I felt good and felt accomplished when I finished. It was definitely harder than most of the running I’ve been doing lately. The temperature today was 46 degrees with no wind so I ran in shorts and a t-shirt and didn’t freeze like yesterday.

After my run I swung by Little Caesar’s to pick up dinner, since I had a gift card. I love some $5.99 Little Caesar’s hot and ready pepperoni pizza!

I have a confession to make. When I eat my pizza I take the cheese off, and put the pepperoni back on. I don’t actually eat the cheese at all, and I just like my pizza better that way. I think it tastes less greasy. The strange thing is I like cheese and I like cheese bread, too. Also, if I am eating cold leftover pizza I don’t mind leaving the cheese on. Strange, I know. Want to know what’s even crazier? My best friend also eats her pizza this way. We didn’t meet until high school, but we both were doing that with our pizza before we ever met. Great minds think alike.

The Daytona 500 is this weekend and I’m already excited! I’m also looking forward to watching the Oscars on Sunday. Hurry up and get here, weekend!

Do you have a Little Caesar’s where you live? Ever had pizza from there?

Do you follow Nascar?? If so, who is your favorite driver?

What are you looking forward to this weekend?
