This is what I did:
Thursday Easy Run 3 miles 29:00
Friday Tempo Run 5 miles 47:00
Monday Long Run 8.27 miles 1:22:07
This is what happens when life intervenes. You make it happen! I switched Thursday and Friday due to the amount of time I had to run. And Sunday, well, the Easter Bunny came earlier than I could get up to run... so Monday it had to happen.

Saturday I had my final weigh in for Toni Senecal's Passover-Lent Off. It is difficult to compare the weight loss because I had to weigh in at a different NYSC under different circumstances, but I started with 128 (it was 132 and they took off 4 lbs for clothes and sneakers). Saturday I weighed in at 123 without sneakers on. The body fat change was more exciting though as I went from 23% to 18.8%! [Insert Applause Here!] My friend Nicole lost 22 lbs and about 10% body fat. I am way excited for her. Her journey is just beginning and I was definitely be updating you on her progress.
After my weigh in, I headed over to High Rock Park in Staten Island for another day of obstacle course training with Next Level Performance. It was my third week and they never disappoint me. This week we did trail running with sandbags in teams of 10. You stop at a station, do a variety of fun exercises (push ups, burpees, etc.) and then when your teammate gets there, you run again. This went on for a full hour. Truth be told,. I only kept the sandbag for one round, but I didn't quit.
The rest of the weekend was chock full of bunnies, colored eggs and lots of pasta.

I will spare you the details of the banana pancakes, meat-filled baked ziti, the 2 giant pieces of italian bread, 15 Cadbury caramel eggs and the bag of extra long Twizzlers that I literally finished in bed last night, while watching Ringer (great show and I love Sarah Michelle Gellar!). I will just say that I had a nice Easter and now I am back on track. Going forward, bread will be a treat not a staple in my diet. Also, I still have not had a drink. Beer was not worth it for me yesterday. When I do decide to have some liquid calories, it will be in the form of a good red wine.
Did you have a good weekend? If you gave anything up for Lent, did you enjoy indulging on Sunday?
