I ran 3.1 miles and it felt effortless and smooth. I enjoyed the nature and I didn't have to think about running. It was so refreshing. I really didn't pay much attention to speed but I worried that it felt too easy and that I should be going faster. I tried to speed up the last mile (my road is exactly a one mile loop). It seemed like was out there for a few minutes and I LOVED that! The first three miles on the 'mill feel like forever. I finished the 5K in 33 minutes. I know for most of you that is REALLY slow, but for me, it's a great time. To run under 11 minute miles is unusual. Obviously I run faster outside. To run 11 minute or less miles on my 'mill is so painful and hard. It's funny that it would feel so different, but I think it's because I wasn't watching the time. I can't wait for the next nice day to run!!!
Now on to more exciting things- FOOD and DRINKS! Over Easter (and break) I wanted to try new things. I saw on FB that Bud Light Lime had a new drink:
It was decently good. In the can, I don't think I could drink too many of these. I poured it once ice and that was better. I like Margaritas, I don't like beer. It's a mix between the two. I could live without it, but I can also enjoy it if I don't have anything else.
I also decided that I wanted to try to make something somewhat healthy for Easter dessert. My MIL always wants to have cheesecake.... I do like cheesecake, but I don't need the calories! Here is what I came up from Pintrest:
Strawberry, angel food cake skewers with chocolate drizzle. YUM-O!
On the weight loss news front- I'm down 27 pounds! I gain a few over spring break, but now I have lost all of that and I'm down a little more. YAY! 23 pounds more to go. I'm more than half way.
Happy Warm Weather!
