Back from MIA!

Hi everyone!! I've been totally MIA due to school, but I wanted to let you know I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth ;)

I haven't been running very much lately, but I have been staying active! Now that I'm back at university, I've been walking 2-3 miles per day (I go Monday-Thursday) on campus and lifting a lot of weights/hitting spin classes.

As you can see, my biceps are enormous ;) I might not have visible muscle mass yet, but I've noticed a huge difference in how strong I feel doing daily activities and when I do go for a run.

My course load is pretty high this semester, and since I'm commuting I'm spending around 3 hours in the car per day. I'm going to try to blog at least 3 times a week, and run at least as much :) As much as I love running, weight lifting has been more my thing lately, so I'll just ride it out until I get sick of it ;)

I hope you guys have been doing well!

Resolution Run Take 2!

Today I woke up feeling much better, so I decided to try my 5k again!

I fueled up with a soy green tea latte and a bagel, then headed out the door a couple of hours later.

It definitely wasn't a PR run by any means, but I was happy to complete it :)

My goal for 2015 is to get my 5k down to sub-35! If not more, because my ultimate goal is sub-30 :)

I thought about hitting the gym to lift weights after, but instead I spent the afternoon watching Divergent with my mom, reading Harry Potter, and cuddling on the couch with this guy.

I'm still sore from lifting weights yesterday, so the rest was probably a good thing, and it was nice to just relax and hang out with my family :) Tomorrow I've got a double workout on the schedule though!

What was your first workout of 2015?
