Workout Roundup

Posted by Nicole

Today has been such a good day! I woke up at 11 (oops…), made a tasty brunch (spinach and broccoli omelette with toast and jam), and then went to Starbucks for an afternoon pick-me-up and some magazine reading.

Caffeinated and happy, I walked over to the gym to get a little workout in.

Well, it turned out to be one of those awesome workout days. I ended up running 7 miles at an average pace of 9:10. It felt GOOD.

Now I’m quickly eating a pile of spinach, topped with a veggie steamer, an egg, and half a cup of egg beaters while blogging. I need to hurry up and put on makeup and curl my hair because I’m dancing at the men’s basketball game vs. Minnesota tonight. I hope we win!

As always, the rest of the week’s workouts:

This week was full of awesome, sweaty dance practices, a good amount of miles, and a few moves with the weight machines (for the first time in a couple months).

That’s all for today! Enjoy your weekend!
