Top O the evening to ya'll! Today was the Get Lucky! 7K and I wouldn't say I rocked it but I got it done for sure:-) It hit the 80's here in Minnesota today folks..... 80's! Now mind you, we Minnesotans are used to seeing lots of snow in March but not this year, I think we are in for a doozy of a summer for sure!
Anyways, the 7K. It was a little tough for some reason today. I'm not sure why, it's not like I haven't been walking 7K already. The sun was out and quite warm and the terrain on this one was a little hilly for my liking but all in all it went well once I got going. I did this one with my friend again and we made it through to the end. There were a ton of peeps in green walking this one so the water stops were bone dry by the time we mosied through... water would have been very welcomed:-)
Ok, so this one was done in 1 hour & 18 minutes... officially timed I might add. That also matched my Polar heart monitor time so that was good to see. There were 10886 steps taken, 484 calories burned and 4.45 miles walked. Whew... I swear I should have had a higher calorie burn than that! It was quite a nice area to walk also, parts of it I had not seen before so that's always enjoyable.
Of course after that we had to celebrate with:
Green beer and greenies. I'm not sure what's in the greenies but I do have to say that by the time we were actually to this point I was done drinking for the day. Hey, I started at 10:30 am and this was around noon and I don't drink much anymore so I just wasn't feeling it. I was also very sleepy so I became the party pooper on St. Patty's day and went home before 6 pm. In all fairness I had been up since 6 am and... well... there isn't much more of an excuse I guess. Other than I want to be healthier maybe?? Does that work?? LOL.
Ok, so as we were waiting to start the walk there was a lady in front of me with this on:
I totally thought it said 'fat' rather than 'faster' at first but I absolutely need me a shirt (or several) like this! One in every color of the rainbow:-)
I also used this walk to complete a virtual one:
Yep, another one down.... plenty more to go:-) I have to do some organizing to make sure I have my list of them all updated and in order so that I can change my ticky timer over there on the right to reflect when the next one is! I did receive my iPad that I bought myself as an award yesterday so I'm excited to get that calendar all updated!
Ok, so I leave you with my fun pic for the day. I went to a strip joint for drinks earlier... yes... a strip joint. Never been to one, not too shocked at what I saw, not too impressed, not too excited about going back. I can say I've been there done that though now:-) Anyways, the best thing (other than being with my boyfriend & friends and having just completed the 7K of course) was that I could turn on all my blinkie Irish garb & actually see in in the strip joint darkness since it was way too sunny outside to get the full effect!
All in all it was a good day but now I should shower and nap cause, heck.... it ain't easy being green so I'm tired and there is still a ton of laundry to get done before Monday! I leave ya with this ending:
