Sunday Run

Sioux hockey was good this weekend. Especially since they swept Michigan Tech with a score of 4 to 1 both nights. I can't complain ... the Sioux haven't had a home sweep since probably 2006. They have had this terrible habit of winning friday night's game big, and then losing saturday night.

I returned back home early afternoon today and went to the gym for the scheduled 40 minute run. All I was hoping to accomplish was a nice and easy 3 miles. I started slow, probably doing a run 5 walk 1, and after every walk break I would increase my running pace by 0.1 . Towards the end of my run, after I had accomplished my 3 miles, I had a good amount of time left and worked on some speed and did a bit on a 5% incline. Once I was done, all I had in me was to do some good stretching and ab work. Schedule called for lifting legs, but I passed. I want to have fresh legs for in the pool tomorrow! It's been a week.

3.56 miles
42:36 minutes
Pace: 11:57 min/mile

Now, I am going to watch the Giants and Cowboys while I attempt to put away ALL Christmas decorations and such ... and possibly do some cleaning.

I have been gone every weekend since christmas, and haven't had the time or patience to take care of it during the week!:)

Good job on the run. I can't say congrats to the Sioux, you have to understand, me being a die hard Gopher and all!! :)

It was a good weekend for football, even though none of the teams I wanted to win,, that really is the case. I guess I can be slightly OK with the Packers, can't stand Favre, but he did play well and it was a good run on their part on Saturday.

nice run.. I ended up watching all four games this weekend! So pleased that the Cowboys lost, although that still didn't shut T.O. up!

That is funny! But the blog pic isn't very representative of me so may be I should change it soon. That way you'll definitely know if he looks like me!

Feel bad for Romo.. I cant. He was on vacation with Jessica Simpson! How can I feel bad for that?!
