I have lived to see another sunrise.
Can I just say that before I do a running recap, you guys are hilarious! Some of your comments on my posts yesterday actually made me laugh out loud. And I love that. So pat yourselves on the back funny people...mama is giving you kudos.
I was super cranky yesterday afternoon...probably due to my fear of impending death and also my impending period. We arrived at McGuires a little after 5:00 pm. I could feel the actual sun flares lapping my skin. I was going to walk/jog with my coworker Loyd and we would leave a little ahead of the runners so we would finish close to the same time. He asked me if I was ready. I don't remember my exact words or sentence, but I do remember saying f*&^ at least 9 times.
So off Loyd and I go. Loyd is a speed walker. I am a short stubby leg walker. However, I tried to keep up. Then we started jogging. I proceeded to walk and jog. I jogged further than I thought I could. I played a little game in my head called "Pretend Heather is standing at the end, watching you run". It's a fun game. You should play too! Of course you can substitute Heather for your husband, wife, hollywood dream mate, life partner, or me... But it does help me. Because I know...and you know...that we push ourselves more when we are trying to be impressive.
At one point after jogging several blocks, my body felt like a furnace. I am pretty sure I could have boiled eggs on it.
But the end came. And I survived. And yes...I will probably go back next week.
Today I doing circuit training over lunch and Zumba after work. I believe in the land of crazy this is called "Two a Days".
You know how many I am doing tomorrow? NONE.
Wait. I lied. I am doing circuit in the morning.
Okay...did you know THIS. You shouldn't make a habit of doing total body weight lifting back to back. Meaning, if I do total body (working my arms, legs, back, abs, etc)...I shouldnt do that the very next day. So today I am doing just upper body and abs. Tomorrow I will do just lower body and abs.
I prefer doing total body. Its hard and a little monotonous doing 55 minutes of JUST arms...or JUST legs.
Okay, I am going to change and take a quick swig of the hooch before working out. I thought it would be funny yesterday if while I was running, my sweat would come out orange. I would be sweating diet sunkist!
