Outfit of The DAY (plus) Army 10-miler training up-to-the-date.

Run Training: After mulling over all of your advice, I decided the best thing for me to do is an entire 3 miles, focusing on the distance & endurance, and not so much my pace yet.....uhmmmyeyah. My time sucked today. LOL. I knocked out 3 miles in 40:00. Ugh. Excuse me while I unfurrow my brow and de-crinkle my nose. Nah, I didn't expect to run it in 30:00, or even 35:00, but 40? Geez. You can call me Grandma Jenny.

I'll just keep on trudging along- because I can only get better :-)

I made a great purchase yesterday- a Garmin Forerunner 305! I obviously really would have liked to have the much sleeker and cuter green garmin 405, but I still love my Anthropologie, people. I can't spend a fortune on a running watch. This is perfect though and have heard good things from friends about it- I love the idea of knowing exactly what your pace and distance is. What motivation! Look how big this sucker is...I mean, really. I'd almost think this was a big joke. HAHA!! Looks like something from the '80s.OOTD: Yes, I FINALLY have an outfit of the day photo. I know, I know. Did I not promise you all I was going to start doing this? :-) I honestly don't do it more because what I wear to work is dull most days. I'm in public affairs and I rarely ever get out of my cubical (Yeah. The Public in Public Affairs wouldn't really suggest I sit in a cube all day would it? Don't get me wrong- I get out plenty, but not for long periods of time.) Most days I'm doing social media stuff and talking to media on the phone.

Anyway- My outfit of zee day.

Occasion- Casual Engagement Party
Dress- Anthro, Summer 2008

Cardigan- TJ Maxx ($5!)
Sandals- Target (Similar here)

Why does my dog insist on licking me after I've takena shower or sweated. UGH. Drives me CRAZY!! Then I feel bad for scolding. :-/ (random thought. Because he's freakin' doing it NOW as I type.)

Dinner tonight is whole wheat spaghetti and turkey meatballs. Lunch and dinner for tomorrow (pre-made tonight) Stuffed Bell peppers (with turkey meat).

Have a wonderful night.
For all you Anthro lovers- see you on the webiste bright and early for *hopefully* a great sale!!

You look gorgeous! I'm sure your doggie licks you because you taste good (lotion or something?). Or he just loves you!

i love love love your sandals...

thanks for coming over to my blog. your comment really made my day. i never thought id inspire anyone :) thank you a million times over for that.

congrats on the 305. the humungoness takes some time to get used to. but now i wear it with pride. when i see people with it at races, i feel a connection. lol I KNOW IM LAME!

slow and steady like msHark says. on the treadmill i still average 40:00 3 milers. Outside is such a better place to run...

Wow, I love your dress! It's really cute. Bright green is such a fun color!

Don't fret about your time! I'm sure its better than tons of people who don't run and don't blog about their lack of running... see what I mean ;)

Pace is just something to keep running exciting when the newness of it wears off. The reason you'll see it mentioned in so many running blogs is the people writing them have covered the distance multiple times before. Completion of the run is [basically] a given. A faster pace gives them a goal to work toward. You're doing awesome!

Thank you, thank you, alll of you :-) The more I thought about that nasty time, the better I felt, because at least I completed 3 miles and I'm jogging/running a mile and 2 miles better than ever before. Many hugs and kisses to ALL of you.
