Long TM run and the juice fast that didn't happen.

Happy Monday!!

  It is 1 degree here today. And it's going to get down to -2. That's just too cold. My sister in Wisconsin has temps at -15. I think I would just lose my mind!
 I always say that someday I'm going to move somewhere warm, and I mean it! I told Jeremy that I'm going to find a job in Hawaii for 6 months, then I'll come back here for 6 months. I think he'd be ok with that. ;)

 Since it was so cold this weekend, I decided to do my 14 miles on the treadmill. It was great! I started watching Scandal. LOVE it.
 I did 10:1 intervals. Run for 10 minutes, walk for 1. For the last 5 miles it was more like 10:2. Doing intervals like that help me so much. It really is amazing how much more stamina and energy I have during the whole run.


Today was supposed to be the first day of my 2 week juice fast. Last night I bought all my fruits and veggies, and had everything set to go. This morning I cut up everything I needed, got my cup out, hit the 'on' button and...nothing. It won't start. I discovered that I need to order a replacement lid for it. I am SO disappointed. I ordered the part, but it won't be here for about 2 weeks. Guess I'll just be starting a little later now. 

What's the temperature like where you are?
Have you watched Scandal?

  1. OMG, Scandal is my favorite show EVER!! My guilty pleasure :) Sorry about the cleanse, that's a bummer when you have it in your head that you are going to do something and then you can't. Temps are in the low teens today, but with the wind tomorrow should be below zero in the DC area. Stay warm!!

    1. That is insane!! I am definitely thankful for my treadmill! I'm not doing the derby because my 100 mile race is the following week. I do want to volunteer at it though. Are you doing it?

    1. I hope it gets here soon too. Now I'm overloaded with fruits and veggies. Think I'll make a big pot of vegetable soup! Having a good show definitely makes those miles easier!

  13. Oh no! Will the veggies last until you get the the replacement lid?? I'm so happy to hear that you're enjoying the 10:1 intervals. :)

    1. Nope. I'll just make a big pot of veggie soup. That's the only way they'll get eaten!
      Oh, I love them. It makes such a difference, I'm hooked! :)

  14. I give you so much credit for running over a half marathon on the treadmill! I did it last year for one of my long training runs and I was really bored, but it honestly helped with the mental part of marathon training!
