Need to Up the Mileage...

Hello everyone!

I am totally one of those 'bored' exercisers. I get bored with a routine really easily. I also fall in love with them super fast, and that's all I want to do, haha! Right now, it's my interval and ab workout! I did it again today, and I love it so much!

I followed this guideline, except added a minute at 6.5 mph followed by a minute of 6.0 mph before the 3.5 mph cooldown. I got 2.58 miles in 25:00.

I am loving intervals, I think, because I don't get very bored, because I'm constantly watching the clock waiting for the next minute. Haha. Mentally, it's easier for me to run 2.5 miles in intervals than 1.5 at a constant pace. My body isn't as tired, but my mind is sick of it. Haha. So, of course, this means I now have something to work on. 

I'm going to keep my intervals, because they are great for weightloss and speed, but I have to start putting some distance in there sometime. That 13.1 miles isn't going to run itself. I think I'll just try to add 1 mile per month, and do that once a week at least. I'll star at 4 for February. So tomorrow, I'm going to crank out four miles even if it drives me insane. Haha. :) My Kindle will definitely be helping through this!

On an unrelated note: I just found this super cute picture of Shane and I on my friend's Facebook. I am surprised I don't have it... 

Have a great day, y'all. Only 30 more days in Djibouti!


  1. Awwwww such a precious shot of you guys!

  2. That picture is adorable!! I feel the same way about intervals, but sometimes a longer run really helps clear my mind. Since it's not as intense, I have time to think about things. :)

  3. Aw, cute pic! Awesome that you only have 30 days left! That must feel awesome.

    I am totally a bored exerciser too. I go all out with something, and then get bored and switch to something else. I'm trying to be more moderate...but, my brain just doesn't work that way!

  4. I love the last picture of you and Shane! So in love and it shows!
