30 Minute 3 Mile Pyramid Run

by Jillian on February 6, 2012 · 14 comments

First off…. GOOOOO GIANTS!


This weekend was both extremely busy and fun! Friday night, I got home quite late after hostessing at the restaurant. I never understood until now how having a glass of wine and winding down after dealing with people all night is completely necessary. Saturday was similar, especially because I worked my first double. I got in at 10:30 AM, served, changed, and then hostessed until 11PM. A brick oven pizza and a cocktail was definitely necessary before heading home Saturday night. It’s fun to hang out and wind down with all the employees after hours, though, so I see why Joe ends up getting home so late on the weekends.

Last night, a large crowd of us went out for the super bowl. I ate just about every junk food you could possibly imagine (ie. pizza, nachos, burgers, fries, and wings) and loved every second of it. I was not about to “healthify” my super bowl eats. I enjoyed a few beers, and lots of food! After a nerve-racking 4th quarter, I was happy that my Giants won! Especially because I’m not a huge Tom Brady fan. It has nothing to do with football, but I have always held a grudge since he started dating Gisele while Bridget Moynahan was pregnant with his child. Is it just me?


Anyway, needless to say, this morning was a late start. Joe headed into work while I got started on my day. I really wanted to get to the gym since I had taken a few unplanned days off last week. After coffee and a piece of toast with peanut butter, I headed out to get in a quick workout.

I wanted to take it a little easy since my stomach was still suffering a bit from last night’s greasy food! I had a 30 minute Integrative Nutrition lecture to listen to, so I opted for a 3 mile tempo-ish run.

Afterwards, I did about 20 minutes of random ab exercises, stretching, and foam rolling.



Typical green smoothie made with dark cocoa powder, spinach, protein powder, almond milk, flax meal, stevia, ice, and a pinch of xanath to thicken.  I opted for half of a grapefruit on the side for some carbs and sugar to refuel.


I always feel like I need leafy greens to sort of “detoxify” after a day of unhealthy eats.


Despite waking up later than I’d wanted, I got a lot accomplished today already!

  • a load of laundry
  • 1 hour of cPT studying
  • 1 IIN lecture (during my run)
  • gym/shower/breakfast
  • cooked a batch of millet
  • painted my nails
  • ordered protein powder and shakes from Netrition
  • emptied the dishwasher and cleaned up the pizza and wine from last night, yeah…..

I hope you all had fun on Super Bowl Sunday and didn’t have too hard of a time getting back into the groove this Monday morning! I’ll be heading in to work at 4:00.

  • Thoughts on Tom Brady/Gisele/Bridget?

I am so happy the Giants won. Not only is Eli a great QB, but he is such a cutie pie! Sounds like you are working hard. I give you a lot of credit working with the public. Enjoy that wind down at the end of your shift!

Just a heads up, this title says a 30 mile run!!

Hahah I realized that when it came up in my reader. UGH! I look badass I guess, 30 miles!?

I blogged during the super bowl, haha. I don’t know I haven’t really gotten into it the past couple years. I’m jealous of your smoothies every morning. I try to be a good roommate and not bust out the blender in the am.

When I lived with roommates, I used to put almond milk and protein powder in a shaker and shake it up like crazy after the gym. Definitely not as good, but it was a great alternative!

I completely agree with you about the whole Tom Brady thing–leaving your pregnant girlfriend makes you an asshole (sorry, no other word would suffice) in my mind. I was so happy to see t he Giants win, especially after they beat the Ravens (grrr, I’m still bitter!).

There’s always next year… And it always comes so quick! Hope to see an e-mail from you soon since NYFW is coming up! :)

I am not the biggest Tom Brady fan.. he seems like quite the conceited individual. That being said, I’m from NY so I don’t like anything Patriots-related!

I agree, TB isn’t so hot anymore and did you hear about all of the drama with Gisele? Apparently she got caught talking sh*t last night on camera about Tom’s performance….please, what a hot mess this couple is!

Glad you had a good weekend dear.

Joe was telling me this morning about Gisele! How crazy is that! lol

I love this treadmill workout! I’ll have to try using it later in the week!

I just found you on Caitlyn’s Healhthy Tipping Point and I love sprinkles too!!! and i love green smoothies too. Can’t wait to follow your blogs!

It sounds like hostessing has been a lot of fun! I’d need that glass of wine after a long day like yours too though! Amen for vino. ;)

I am ridiculously attracted to Tom Brady, but hate him for leaving Bridget during pregnancy. Why is it that I’m always into men with bad character? Gah.

Hope you’re having a fab week! xoxo

Now I really regret not having any cocoa powder right now — your smoothie sounds delicious! :)
