My kind of run!


I did make it to group power and then ran two miles with a little walk in between. It was slow and ugly and I can't believe that at some point I was running five miles easily. Ouch. My knee felt better running than it did squatting, so I guess I can go do this again. Yay me. Next time 2 1/2 miles. I was so bored while I was running, I was watching some animal show about sea lions. It could have even been on Disney. It was that or college football. Come on, my club, that makes me want to smack my head against the wall. My son downloaded some new music for me, so that helped, for about 5 minutes.

Anyway, I was on Pinterest and saw this funny card. Most people go to Pinterest for motivation, I go for the laughs. What does that say about me?

I bumped into my step instructor, who I have known for a long time, and I asked her about group step and why it is so hard and that it is much more challenging than it used to be. I felt like I had lead in my shoes yesterday. She said its because they have changed the choreography so it is more tabata-like with intervals. Yup, there are jump squats, burps, side skaters, and lots of squats. I could have kissed her, because I am in pretty decent shape and that class totally kicks my ass. So it isn't totally me (well, a lot me, but not totally). Now I feel better and motivated.

My Lululemon order that I thought I placed on Thanksgiving day never went through, and I must say, the GEC that I spoke to was wonderful. But, the wunder under crop with bow is gone, girl, gone. I hope it comes back, but if not, there will be something else for me to drool over, I'm sure. At some point, I have to go through and see what I am keeping and what I am returning. If you have seen my photos, you can see the mess on my sofa that I need to deal with. It might be safe to go to a mall in a few days, maybe.
