Happy Birthday To…
(and Mama Pea!)
Fun facts about my dad:
All of my friends refer to him as “Irish Tim”
He is happiest on a golf course, preferably in Ireland
He has this ridiculous muffled chuckle that you can barely hear and sounds like a grunt. I was lucky to inherit it from him.
Setting foot on Notre Dame’s campus puts him in a good mood
He could live off of bagels and cream cheese and chocolate chip cookies
Happy Birthday Daddy! Love you!
This morning I woke up determined to get in a great “back-on-track” workout after a weekend of indulgence. I thought about doing the same “3-2-1” workout that I did last Monday, but then I realized I’d want to stay on the treadmill to watch Osama coverage instead of reading a magazine on the elliptical. I ended up running 6 miles of intervals in 49 minutes looking like this:
10 minute warm up at 6.5mph
1 minute intervals from 8.0 up to 9.5 (!!!) with a 1 minute recovery in between at 6.7 mph
~8 minute cool down at 6.5mph to finish out the 6 miles
9.5mph is a 6:17 pace and the fasted I’ve ever run! The whole time I was thinking “how in the world do people do this for 26 miles?? I never found the answer.
After my run I rounded out the hour with 10 minutes on the stairstepper before stretching and abs. Great sweaty way to start my week.
We’re going out to a nice dinner tonight for my Dad’s birthday so I decided to dress up a bit. This is a new skirt, peach shirt, and peach belt from the J.Crew Outlet in Hilton Head. Shoes are Adolfo Dominguez but I got them free from work:)
Shoe close up:
Soupy banana chia oats (too much water) with Sunbutter.
Stay tuned for a really random Monday Man-Day post later this afternoon. Have a great day!
- Quick! Tell me something about your dad!
