Happy Monday...Errr Tuesday!! (Giveaway Winner)

This week is starting out as the "Happy Monday...I mean Tuesday" type of week.  This has screwed up my running for the week, because yesterday instead of getting my Monday morning run in, I slept in and then spent the whole day with my family.  By last night I had a ton of laundry to do, and no motivation to run (plus the Bachelorette was on...and the Jake vs Vienna special)...so good!!
So, I had my alarm set to run first thing this morning, and then I have speed work tonight.  But I wasn't feeling good in the middle of the night, and this kept up until about 7:30 this morning.  I felt really yucky!!!  I feel better now, but it made me miss my run :(
So, now I have to fit in 3 runs before Saturday, so it looks like speed work tonight, a 4am run tomorrow morning, and a 4am run Thursday morning.  We then have 6 scheduled for Saturday morning.

This past Saturday was an 8 miler, and it went really good!  I met my friend Becki at 6am and we set out.  The first few miles were a little rough for me (they always are) but at around 4 miles, I felt really good and we finished the 8 miles in 1hr 19min.  We then did some abs on a blanket by the lake, and then I headed to Gold's Gym to meet my sister for an hour of Body Combat.  So, needless to say I burned approx. 1200 calories Saturday morning...such a good feeling!

Now, on to the winner of my Life Your Sole, Zebra Print Travel Mug...I used random.org and out of 71 entries, it drew 31.....

CONGRATS ANGIE, AND THANK YOU TO

Your Monday and Tuesday morning sound just like mine....all intentions and getting up for a run and nope...slept in. You will get it in!

That's quite a lot of activity on Saturday! Awesome.
Isn't 4 a.m. still kinda dark? Good luck in getting all your runs in this week. I look forward to reading about them.
