Mission Success!

We've had some really beautiful weather over here in northern Cali so I had to take advantage of it. (I'm so sorry for those of you in the freezing cold temperatures - I've been there!)

I went for a short run on Saturday morning. I planned to do 3 miles but ended up sticking it out for just a little bit longer. My pace is still kind of slow but I didn't take any walk breaks so yay for that.

Avg pace: 10:31min/mi
Avg hr: 173bpm

On Sunday, I decided to go for a real bike ride. Normally, I just do 12-13 miles on my local trail since it's so close to my home but there's so much traffic on that trail, it's hard to just get "in the zone". I decided to take my bike out on the Coyote Creek trail which is similar to the one I normally use but with a lot less people. There were some other bikers and a few runners, but for the most part, it was nice and open. It was really pretty out there today! The course is pretty flat for the most part so it wasn't all that challenging or exciting, but it was nice to get some solid miles in. I definitely want to continue to explore new routes for my bike rides.

Avg pace: 14.9mph
Avg hr: 149bpm

(By the way, I'm not really sure what the O and N stand for in those notes above. I'm just copying the other bloggers - heehee. I think it stands for Obligatory and Note, but I'm not really sure. If you know, fill me in!)

Anyway, my little game worked! I did my four workouts for the week, so now I get my reward :) Off to the MAC store for my goodies:

I got a couple of eye shadows, a lipstick, and a paint pot for a smokey eye/nude lip look. As I soon as I got home, I had to try it out (even though I was going to be parked on my couch for the rest of the day, haha.) I still need to play with them a little more, but here's a before/after peek at my first try of the "look":

I made another fun new purchase while at the mall - new running shoes! I've been wearing Nike Vomero's for the last couple of years so I decided to get a new pair but this time in orange:

I looked online and they were $125. I had just received one of those Nike coupons for 25% off any purchase of $125 or more so I thought, perfect! I headed to my local Nike store where I was thrilled to discover that the orange Vomero's were actually on sale at the store for $74.99!!! SWEET! But alas, they were sold out in my size. No worries - they went ahead and ordered me a pair from online but at the store's sale price - yay! Also, I assumed that I would just pick them up from the store when they arrived but no, they had them shipped to my home instead. I was a happy camper for sure.

With my four day streak, I think I'm going to take Monday off as a rest day. But I also plan to review all the class schedules at my gym network to pick out some classes for the rest of the week :)

LOVE the blue eyeshadow. What's it called?

audgepodge said...

Contrast - it's super pretty, I love it! The other color is Texture and it looks really pretty if you use it to sort of "smoke out" Contrast or any other dark color along the crease area.

Julianne said...

Oooh I have Contrast! It is a pretty color! Ok, seriously, can we play make up next time I see you???

Great job on your run and bike ride!!

Yay for running and biking! My inner-cyclist is still not feeling any calls to get out there. There is a layer of dust on my bike :(

That's it...we are getting together to play with make-up one day and talk Goofy strategy! I like the way Alisa put it...Make-up challenged...that is me.
