happy father’s day!!

on June 17, 2012

first and foremost i’d like to wish a happy father’s day to my lovely dad! for those who don’t know my father, the best way to describe is a ponytailed, heavy metal liking, harley bike riding, modern day version of mr. miagi…

yup, that’s my dad!! i’ll have to dig through and see if i can find any pictures of him to post here!

i’d also like to wish a happy father’s day to my wonderful husband!!

we don’t have kids (yet) but we do have 2 crazy puppies, 2 insane cats, and 1 never-quits ferret!

if that’s not a handful, i don’t know what is!

ok, now onto the day!

i started my sunday off right with 20 minutes of high intensity interval running!

here was my breakdown:

1-2 minutes-3.5 mph warm up

2-3 minute: 4.5mph 

3-4 minute: 5 mph

4-5 minute: 5.5 mph

5-6 minutes: 6 mph

repeat 3 more times

then cool down

i know it’s not very fast, but it’s short, intense, and i’m hoping it’ll help me start to run faster without feeling like my heart is going to explode!

now it’s time for breakfast! there’s this cute local restaurant downtown that apparently has amazing food, and i saw on their fb page that they have a special today of oatmeal with fresh blueberries, strawberries, and bananas with italian coffee on the side…YES PLEASE!!

i’ll take some pictures for you and post them later!

Question of the day: what is your favorite high intensity workout?
