5K Friday!

Yesterday I read a suggestion for 5K Fridays on Twitter. At first I declined since I usually take Friday as a Rest Day. I mean, rest days are sacred in my book! But, last night when I was re-writing my training plan I realized I could fit it in, so I wrote it into my calendar.

The original idea was from Weight In Vain. I’ll be posting about my 5K Fridays through the end of the year. Anyone else care to join me?

Here is my first 5K Friday…

7/9/10 – 3.1 miles in 27:50

After my solo 5k I made breakfast. I always think about making oatmeal because I am constantly seeing it in blogland, but every time I eat it lately I am disappointed. Boo.

I tried again today and mixed up: 1/3c oats, almond milk, cinnamon, vanilla, 1/4c egg beaters, stevia. IMG 9851 thumb 5K Friday!

Then, I topped it with almond butter and cereal. It was okay, but I think I need to just avoid hot oatmeal for a while. IMG 9850 thumb 5K Friday!

In addition to 5K Friday, it’s also Flashback Friday!

Since it just passed, I thought I’d share some pictures of my 2008 Fourth of July. I went to Vegas with friends and as expected, dressed inappropriately and partook in beverages…

Don’t judge…and don’t ask what I’m doing with my hand. I have no clue.

Question: Ever been to Las Vegas? Did you win big or come back home broke and itchy?

    I love the idea of doing a weekly 5K! Seems like a good way to gauge progress while getting some speedwork in. I’ll have to make it 5K Saturday though.

    I actually won a fair amount of money playing blackjack last time I was in Vegas… which I then proceeded to lose (plus a little more) playing blackjack. Funny how that works!

    I LOVE VEGAS!! I have been there 4 times since Aug 2007 and have enjoyed every time. Last time I ran the strip early morning and it was funny because all the drunks were still out. I had to be careful tho because had an incident with one of them. I was happy my husband was on that run with me. Great job on your time. :)

    What what is that big drink???

    As you already know I’m a native to Las Vegas. The only time I go on the strip is if friends/family is in town OR it to go shopping at Planet Hollywood, Forum Shops or Fashion Show Mall.

    I actually partied on the strip for 4th July with my boyfriend and his friends. Ended up getting into Haze VIP and free drinks Friday night. These nights are not often for me but always a good time!

    No that’s American! Glad you didn’t leave all that you did in Vegas and shared with us.

    I have never been in the summer, dying to see all the bodies at the pool, lol.

    Went one time, although I’d love to go back and this time have more fun! We went with another couple and it was less than pleasant.

    5k Fridays is a great idea! I want to do it! Wish I had known earlier! I did weights and elliptical today.
    Vegas is always fun! I’m not very good at wearing revealing clothing but I’m great at shaking my booty and enjoying adult beverages :) I last went in May and had a blast.

    Gosh I am SO tempted to join this 5k Friday group, but I am recovering from a major surgery and am just getting into running again. I’m fighting to take it slow….very difficult to do, especially when something as fun as this comes up.

    I can’t eat a lot of hot oatmeal in the summer. Have you tried overnight oats? I like them much more when the weather is hot.
