Pictorial post: Long run, skiing, and my beautiful weekend

I had a great weekend.  The whole company had Saturday off so I did too.  This never happens and I am so thankful for it.  I had a great weekend.  I have been doing great so far on my eating and exercising.  I brought all my food with me to our ski trip and counted everything perfectly.  I did have some m&m’s last night but I counted them all up.  We stayed at the mountain pretty much until our lift tickets expirered.  What a beautiful day it was and I got so much activity in.

I did a 25 mile long run this morning.  I did very well and had no problems finishing the run at all.  Even after a day of skiing I was able to finish great.  I am looking forward to two days off of exercise.  I am going to post pictures of my weekend.  So enjoy.

On the first run of the day the snow was perfect, the sun was out, and my wife was in full force with the cam

It just wouldn't be much fun without my LOVE :). She is the best part about going skiing. I fall in love with her a new every time I see her coming down the mountain.

A quickie before skiing

Audrey skiingToday I am off of work completely.  We did not work today so everyone got off for the first time in a looooooooooong time.  I am going skiing.  Audrey is so much better now than she was in this picture.  It is amazing how much she has improved.  I just wanted to do a quick post before I left to go skiing.

I did an amazing thing last night.  I did my first tempo run.  This run was 6 miles long with the 2 miles in the middle run at my 10K pace.  So I averaged an 8:00 minute mile for the entire run but the middle two miles I averaged 6:52 minute miles.  That was a first for me and very speedy.  I was so proud of my self.  It took me something like 48 minute to do the run and I burned around 570 calories according the my heart rate monitor.

Another great victory yesterday was no chew.  And today no chew either gosh darnit.  That means I have 5 days without it.  Oh yeah, yesterday I was three days “again” without POP or soda as my buddy Robfitness calls it.  I am trying that little health goal again.  No pop.

My eating was superb since my weigh-in on Tuesday.  I am pretty happy with how things have been going and I hope that I can sustain the momentum for the weekend.  I am a bit sore today and have a 25 mile long run to do tomorrow.  Going skiing today.  Wow.  What a new life I am leading.  Strong and healthy
