Pros and Cons

Pro: Oh my gosh! I ran 3 miles tonight! Three miles on the treadmill with 0 incline at about a 14 mph pace, but still. [Edit: Oops, make that a 14 minute mile pace. :+)] This is the farthest/longest I've run since...since...well, ever. Previously, the longest I'd ever run without a walk break was probably 25 minutes about 3 years ago, the last time I tried this running thing. Over the past few weeks, I've only been running 7-8 minute intervals! And tonight I felt like I could have kept going, but the gym was getting ready to close.

Con: I ate a bag of chips with lunch, and a Cadbury Cream Egg and a small chocolate bar on the way home from work. Can you say stress eating?

Pro: Hopefully, I ran off at least the small chocolate bar.

My theory for tonight's marathon at the gym is that the Cadbury Cream Egg actually came from the Energizer Bunny. The question now is, how badly am I going to pay for this tomorrow, and I'm talking about the run, not the junk food.

Yay Theresa! That is fabulous.

But...umm.... you weren't running 14 mph. That means you would have finished three miles in just under 13 minutes. I believe you meant 14 minute mile, no? ;)

Keep up the excellent work!
