Well, last night’s workout was interesting to say the least.
I was absolutely STARVED when dinner rolled around last night. I was so starved, in fact, that I was easily able to stuff my face with THREE slices of greasy deliciousness that we pizza. I did not get a chance to work out before dinner, so after dinner was my only option. Note to self: THAT WAS A BAD IDEA.
I decided to go hop on Betty and try my hand at the Galloway method. I settled on a 3:1 approach (Run 3 minutes walk 1). The run was going fabulously for… ohhh about 30 seconds. From the get-go I felt like I was seriously going to taste my pizza for a second time. I even had some heartburn that was getting worse and worse by the second. It was MISERABLE.
1.25 miles (that was all I could handle) 14:30 (11:36 pace).
Yikes. Not my best running moment.
Ok, so now back to Part 3 of the 4th of July in Spokane. (Part 1 here and Part 2 here)
Sunday morning, I woke up nice and early to get a run in with my in laws before we went back to Coeur d’Alene. Boy, was it HOT! This girl is seriously not used to running in the heat anymore. There were a couple times I wanted to throw in the towel, but I didn’t give up. We got in a good 4.5 miles with about an 11:30 pace. I was honestly surprised I got it under 12 min pace. It felt that rough. But it was great running with the fam again. I definitely miss having them as running buddies.
After we got back home, got some breakfast, and got ready, we headed out to Coeur d’Alene once again. It really is gorgeous there. I was a bad blogger and forgot my phone in Spokane, so I didn’t have any pictures from this Coeur d’Alene trip. I will steal them from hubs later.
After a couple hours, we headed back for what we do best… drink cocktails!! 🙂
We all hung out, talked, snacked, and played ladder ball.
Cousie D and I kicked may-jah booty at ladder ball. That game is so much fun.
[ I just love hubs smile. He always looks SO happy! ]
[ Aren’t they just adorbs?! Cousie D and Aunt Do! ]
After some more drinks, it was time for a “friendly” game of poker. $10 buy in can go a long way!
After nearly going out about a thousand times and SERIOUSLY getting lucky on the river (get your mind out of the gutter), I walked away victorious and with $50 extra bucks in my pocket.
Never underestimate the power of a drunkie female poker player. Muwahahaha.
The next morning, hubs and I headed back to Seattle pretty early. We were exhausted, but it was definitely an amazing trip with family. Just a couple more months before we get to see them again!
