Days 88 & 89: Livin’ It Up In The Capital

Day 88:  I apologize for the lack of daily blogs, but my life is overflowing with love, family, friends, food, wine, beaches and travels right now.  Finding the time to write has proved difficult.  Yesterday I crammed in a 53 minute worked at the Navy Fitness Center in Norfolk while Mike spent some time wrapping up his time in the Navy.  I did a sprint workout on the treadmill, weight lifting circuits with a ton of ab work crammed in between sets to make it higher intensity.  It was fun working out in a Naval facility, they have great cable.  It makes it hard to get off a cardio machine.  Seriously.

After that, we drove up to Washington, DC to spend some time with a few members of my family.  My Mom, Step-Dad and brother took us out to our favorite restaurant, Central, to celebrate Mike’s return home.   It was a nice reminder of why I workout as much as I do;  to ensure that I can continue to eat whatever I want.  Cheese puffs, mushroom risotto, lobster burger and a chocolatey desert?  Don’t mind if I do…

Day 89:  Today Michael and I ran 5.5 miles together from my parents house in Glover Park up to American University, over towards the National Cathedral, down around the Naval Observatory, through embassy row, ending in Georgetown for a brunch date with my friend Stacy.  This was our first time running together in six months and I was able to keep up with Mike a little better than I have in the past.  We stayed at a 9.15 pace for the whole time and were able to hold a conversation for the majority of the run.  It’s a good feeling to know that this challenge is paying off in numerous ways.  Building up my speed is definitely an added bonus.  And if I continue to eat the way that I did last night, there is no amount of speed or distance that can save my waistline…
