Accidental Jogging

Happy Wear a Dress Tuesday!

I'm not going to lie, I was really disappointed to have to put together a cold-weather Wear a Dress Tuesday outfit.  I'm ready ready ready for spring!

I thought I'd do something different with my hair - I love that it's still long enough that I can pull it into a polished bun.  Maybe I was a ballerina in another lifetime? :)

I haven't mentioned this on here, but I'm dealing with a sore back right now.  I think I just pulled something over the weekend and it's just sorting itself out, but it's driving me crazy!  I have too much going on right now to be alternating between productivity and laying on a heating pad!

I thought that perhaps warming up my muscles would help so I headed out for a walk this afternoon.  I felt really tight at first, but eventually did loosen up a little bit.  I even broke into a slow jog (roughly a 10:00-10:30/mile pace) at one point.  Overall, a nice walk - I was competing some wind, though!

4.16 miles in 1:01:06, averaging a 14:41 pace.
Mile 1 -14:50
Mile 2 - 15:16
Mile 3 - 12:25
Mile 4 - 15:39
4.00 - 4.16 - 2:54 (18:15 pace)

I'm eating an easy dinner of leftovers (chicken noodle casserole + fried chicken) at my parents house while we watch basketball, NCIS and plan out my dad's photo night for tomorrow.



  1. Chiropractors are great for back issues. In high school I hurt my back at soccer practice one evening and I could hardly walk it was so painful. My dad had a friend who was a chiro and he went in to his office that night for me. Told me I had pulled a tendon, fixed it all up, I walked out feeling great and played in the game the next day.

    Anyways... haha... I guess I just tell you that in case it doesn't get better pronto! Might want to consider a chiro for a quick fix of a pulled muscle.

  2. My back's been bothering me lately, too, and slowly healing. God is good, tho! Chiros are also good...

    And the bun looks good!! I love a good bun. They make you feel ... sophisticated somehow, I think!

  3. What a fun idea. Wear a dress Tuesday! You look quite pretty too!
