Today started with a 6-miler tempo run. I hate to classify my runs as “tempo” because I feel like I’m really bad at maintaining the same pace mile after mile. At least when I’m NOT racing. Somehow this morning I pulled it off – so I’m calling it a tempo run. My goal was to warm up and then run my miles at a 9:20ish pace. Good news – my goal was pretty much accomplished. The first mile clocked in at 9:38 and then, I was speedier from there. I finished in 56:48 – with 9:28 average. Not bad, especially since I wasn’t really PUSHING the pace. I felt like this was a really comfortable run. The weather (50 degrees) helped. I’m pretty sure 50 degrees is my PERFECT running temperature.
It was back to work today and after a relatively busy day, I picked up a Thai feast on the way home.
I ordered from Thai Singha – which is my favorite local Thai restaurant. It also helps that it’s close! On the menu: Drunken Noodles with Chicken, Pineapple Fried Rice, and Veggie Spicy Bamboo Shoots. I also ordered their Veggie Lemongrass Soup (which is by far my favorite item on their menu) for lunch tomorrow.
Also joining us for dinner were my friends Tracy and Heather.
A long, long time ago (I’m dramatic) Heather was my workout buddy — and I haven’t seen her in THREE months. This was also the first time she’s seen my floors – which we got in JULY. So you know if was time for a get together!
After dinner and after the kids went to bed – the real fun began. Yes, I’m talking about Just Dance 3.
Since the hubby is injured and Tracy refuses to dance – it was Heather and me for about 2 hours of dancing. I started out as a winner, but as Heather got the hang of it she started to kick my ass. I’d like to say it didn’t bother me but…
Pictures say a thousand words!
(and yes, I played in my PJs without a bra on – you’re welcome) (MomJovi, my shirt is for you)
It’s hard for me to admit defeat – and while I DID win the last round that we played (WOOT!), Heather definitely won. *hangs head in shame*
That said, we both felt the burn — and by burn I mean we got all hot and sweaty. This game is a SERIOUS workout. (Does that mean I just did a 2-a-day?).
We’ve decided that our rematch will include our significant others, and a lot of alcohol (and lots of bribing to get Tracy to participate). Sounds like a plan to me!
Such a fun night – totally unexpected for a Tuesday!
Are you a good dancer? (I thought I had rhythm until we got this game – now it’s questionable) What’s your favorite Thai dish?
