4) The treadmill
This is my favorite treadmill on the planet and they took them away at my gym!! So sad! I love the fans on the side. In general though, I do love the treadmill for helping me pace better. But I need a treadmill with a TV and a fan. I would die without it!
6) Good Movies. Finally. The Fighter. Social Network. Inception. Black Swan.
7) My Backpack
8) Ripe Bananas
Random right? As I've mentioned, I don't really love fruit, but I love me some ripe bananas so I can make my baked oatmeal loaves for the week!
9) Jersey Shore/Chopped/Gossip Girl and Top Chef
Jersey Shore is such an amazing trainwreck. Chopped and Top Chef are fabulous cooking shows. I love the challenges. And Gossip Girl... oh where are you Gossip Girl, I've missed you!

On another note I just went to the gym during lunch since I couldn't get up this morning (damn you Top Chef and your 10pm start time!) and I attempted what I thought was a Tempo. Turns out, according to my super fast friend Leah (who ran a 3:10 Boston by the way)- I really did a "Pace Run." Tempos are when you warm-up, then go 5 minutes at normal pace and 5 minutes at faster pace for about 5-6 miles. What my plan was:
10 minute warm-up, 1 mile, 6.0mph on the treadmill 1.0 incline
2 miles in 16:27, 7.2-7.4mph on the treadmill at 1.0 incline (8:13min pace)
400 rest (walk 200, jog at 6.0mph for 200)
1 mile at 7.5 mph (8 min mile)
then I jogged for .75 (3 quarters of a mile) at 6.2-6.5
Ended with 5 miles in 45:45
I kinda wanted to die during the faster miles. I wanted to run 3 miles under 8:23 but after two I needed the break. Oh well, something to work on I guess!
What are your favorite things? How do you run Tempos?
