Sleep, Soda, Six Mile PR

This is going to be a quick update because I have a goal in place for tonight: A 10:30 bedtime. Well, I intend to be laying in bed by 10:30. We shall see if I really go through with that one. I have been tired though and I am sure it would be for the best.

Speaking of goals, I have another in mind: NO SODA FOR ONE DAY! I have been an absolute soda addict for the last month and have nearly abandoned water.

That cup doesn't have JUST soda in it...

It's definitely having many negative effects, as well. For example, bloating. What woman likes bloating?!

I will make every effort to avoid the soda machine tomorrow. I am even thinking of letting Peter hold on to my wallet so I can resist the temptation of swiping my credit card through the machine. I will have water and Mio by my side at all times to help.

Anyway, on to running!!!

I anticipated today's run to be a slow one, but this week has been extremely abnormal for me, so it didn't up being as slow as I wanted. As a result, I got a PR on my 6 mile running time.

Believe it or not, I tried desperately to start out 9:30 slow. But my legs didn't want any part of that. I, at least, tried to make it consistent for the first 3 miles, then speed it up in the end. Boom...PR.

I have my Garmin to thank! <3

But that about sums it up! I gotta get my lunch packed and prepare for bed so I can be there by goal time! Have a good night!!!

Do you have a bed time? How many hours of sleep do you normally get a night?

Are you addicted to soda or caffeiene? What's your favorite soda?
-I love Diet Mountain Dew and Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper

Ever get a PR without intention?



  1. Oh my goodness I am SUCH a soda addict, too! I actually don't get bloated from it because I shake a lot of the carbonation out before I drink it (weird, I know, but it works). I've also been trying to go to bed earlier, but it can be a real challenge when you have tons on your mind. I hope you made your bedtime goal!

    1. That's not weird at all! I usually shake mine up a tad too because if I didn't, I would get the hiccups.

  2. I aim to be in bed by 10. Sleeping by 11. (depends on how good the book I'm currently reading is as to what time I fall asleep) I get between 7-8 hours. I would love to strive for 9-10 but that's just not in the cards until summer break. I couldn't remember the last time I had a soda. Too sweet for me, I drink obscene amounts of tap water.

    1. I envy anyone who has time for 9-10 hours of sleep!

      And wow, I *wish* I could say "I can't remember the last time I had a soda..." That's awesome!
