Pyramid Run

This morning, I went to the gym to finish Stage 3 of NROLFW. Expect a full recap of Stage 3 coming soon. Besides lifting, I did a quick 2-mile run this morning, but yesterday I did a great treadmill workout that I want to share. I did a basic pyramid workout, but I increased my speed with each interval. It went like this:

time (mins)     speed
0-3………………….6.0-6.5
4-5………………….7.1
5-6………………….6.5
6-8………………….7.2
8-9………………….6.5
9-12………………..7.3
12-13……………….6.5
13-17……………….7.4
17-18……………….6.5
18-23………………7.5
23-24………………6.5
24-28………………7.6
28-29………………6.5
29-32………………7.7
32-33………………6.5
33-35………………7.8
35-36………………6.5
36-37………………7.9cool down for a couple minutes

This run (minus cool down) was 4.4 miles. I liked how the intensity increased as I got further into my run and was more warmed up. I will definitely be repeating this workout.

After the gym this morning I had cottage cheese with trail mix, an apple, and a splash of coconut/almond milk:

I feel like cottage cheese is a love it or hate it type of food, and man do I love it!

The rest of the morning included lots of work errands and several Valentine’s Day-related impulse buys are Wal-Greens. Can I help it that I’m a sucker for Dr. Seuss kid valentines?

Let’s be honest though, the stickers were what really sold me.

Can’t wait for the holiday! One of my co-workers generously brought in a delicious salad spread for everyone to share at lunch today:

There was lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, snap peas, peppers, eggs, cheese, trail mix, and an orange/avocado salad (I never thought of making that combo, but it was delicious!). I thought it was so wonderful that someone brought all that food to share just to be nice – made the meal taste even better. 🙂
