To be totally honest, I am rarely in the mood to put myself through an interval workout, but once I’m about two minutes into the workout, I’m hit with a sense of determination and motivation to kick some booty on the treadmill.
I changed up the routine I found in my wristlet a bit and ended up spending 30 minutes on the treadmill. In the end, my workout looked like this:
Check out the two minutes at 10.0 in there! Phew!
Truth be told, the second time I ran at 10.0 for a minute, my chest felt tight and I wanted to stop 40 seconds in. I hunkered down and plowed through the last 20 seconds and completed the workout with a sense of accomplishment and some odd looks from the woman next to me who was likely wondering why I was flailing about on the treadmill like a madwoman.

After my time on the treadmill was done, I completed 20 minutes of easy cardio on the elliptical while reading blogs on my phone and flipping through Runner’s World magazine.
Walk + Breakfast
A good workout deserves a good breakfast, but first I had to attend to a crazy dog that needed her morning walk.
The weather this morning was significantly colder than it has been in Orlando and Sadie was shivering as we completed a one-mile loop near our apartment.
When we arrived home, I was in the mood for a HOT breakfast.
Check out my new take on an old favorite!
I topped a cinnamon raisin bagel thin with muenster cheese and veggie bacon and toasted it until the cheese melted.
I’m beginning to think I could add anything to a cinnamon raisin and cheese bagelwich and it would be fantastic. I wonder how peanut butter would taste in this bad boy? Probably kinda weird.
I think Sadie would love it…
Time to work. See ya around lunchtime!
