Short Week

by Meghann on October 20, 2008

Another weekend has come to a close and another Monday is here. This Monday, however, does not bother me as much since it will only be a four day work week for me. J Friday I am packing up and heading to my old alma mater for some football action. Go Noles!! I can’t wait! Only four more days until I reliving my college days (minus the late night fried chicken runs).

 

This morning really was not that painful to get up and run this morning. I never had a chance to do one of my long runs this weekend, so my legs were craving some running attention! I did a nice easy run and time had allowed it I could have easily gone much, much farther!

 

Morning Stats:

Distance: 4.86 miles

Time: 50 mins 28 secs

 

I never had a chance to work my abs yesterday so after my run I buckled down on the floor and crammed in a 10 minute ab session.

o       50 Crunches (x2)

o       50 Reverse Crunches

o       50 Side Crunches (on each side)

o       25 Combination Crunches

o       50 Bicycles

o       50 Rope Climbs ( legs up in the air, lift shoulders, and act like you’re climbing a rope by putting one hand on top of the other as you reach up)

 

Breakfast this morning was quick and easy. I had my leftover Pumpkin Spice Muffin from my lunch at Mimi’s Cafe on Saturday and some fresh pineapple and grapes.

 

This muffin was just as great as the one I sampled on Saturday. I am so thrilled that I asked for it in a to-go box right away so I could enjoy it this morning.

 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and are ready for another work week!

I love Mimi’s Cafe muffins. I can never seem to finish them with my meal though. I always save them for later too. Looks great! Have a good week!

Lucky with a 4 day week – so does my daughter!

I haven’t made muffins in ages, now that the weather is cooling, I’ll have to make up a big batch.

Happy Monday!
