PR and Fro-Gro

Two awesome things happened this weekend.

#1- Paul and I saw this at Costco.

We decided it needs to be called Fro-Gro. We are brilliant and will be millionaires soon we just know it. So don’t you all go and try to steal our idea.

#2- I PR’ed my 5k time by 26 seconds. Granted it was on the T-Mill and not an actual race, but still it is the fastest I have run 3.1 miles since I have really been keeping track. High five.

Sorry for the blurry. I stopped Mr T as soon as I hit the time to take a pic, so I was panting and pretty much dying since I hadn’t done my cool down yet. I haven’t quite mastered this talent yet but I have high hopes for myself.

For mile #1 I alternated 1 1/2 min run/walk and then for mile #2 and #3 I pumped it up to 2 min run/ and 1 1/2 min walk. I did all running at a 12 min per mile pace. At the end I did some sprints to ensure I made the time. Felt GREAT and am very excited to be on my way to running three 12 min miles consecutively.

For the past two runs I have been using my Superfeet insoles as opposed to the custom made ones they gave me to try. I think I actually prefer them so I am going to take the other ones back. Still not totally sold 100% on the shoes yet, but I’m going to give them another week or so and see how I feel before deciding on keeping them or taking them back and trying something else.
