And on me. šŸ™‚

I did 4 miles and felt crappy yesterday so today I was going to bike…but the sky kinda looked like all hell was going to break loose so…I did a cardio/weight training workout inside…and MAN did that get me pumped. I then proceeded to do some ab work, eat dinner, and then I had a private dance party in my kitchen.

*sings* B-B-B-B-BENNY AND THE JETS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah…it would have been embarassing if other people had been witness…but thankfully I was alone and no one could laugh at me.

So after that…I was still pumped…so I stole the boyfriends dog and ran outside to play in the rain. šŸ™‚

It was close to 68 degrees here…so even though it was dark and rainy and 8pm…it was a NICE rain…the warm-ish kind that you don’t mind going out in…MMMMMMMMM SO FUN!!!!!!!!!!

So I ran and played in the rain like a kid.

Not a bad end to the day. Not at all. šŸ™‚

A Dream Is A Wish…

Hiiiiiiii everyone!!!!!!!!

Or rather, anyone who is still out there!! Ha ha. I’m sorry I’ve neglected my readers, but it appears as though graduate studies have the tendency to consume your entire life and require you to drop everything that is not otherwise academic.

Including running.

Which reminds me, I need to text Trainer.

Mission accomplished.

At any rate. HI!!!!

I’ve been running when I can, mostly with the dogs, Shiloh and Tessa. Usually just 2ish miles. I’m so pressed for time that any long runs are just out of the question. I did manage a rather good cardio circuit on my own last Monday so I was quite proud of the soreness I impressed upon myself.

But I do have some very, VERY exciting news!!!!!!!

Wait, two things.

ONE….I’m TWO RACES AWAY FROM MY ’08 GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two……..I’m going to start training for a half!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And the half that we are setting as our dream/goal of the moment is…………………

Oh come on now, who didn’t see that coming!?

So that’s the goal. The backup is Shamrock at Virginia Beach. Backup race is needed due to travel expenses to Disney…but MAN I want that race….and it’s the first one….and…yeah. Gonna have to work on that.

Training should start around Nov 1.

Stay tuned, people.

And hopefully coming this week: Pictures from the USMC MUD RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy trails!

Feelin Way Too Damn Good

I was feeling way too damn good yesterday until I saw my trainer.

Cardio. Drills.

Leg work with one of those round steering wheel resistance thingies…then medicine ball drills, then balancing on a bosu ball, then squats on it, then running/jumping footwork over the bosu…then bicep curles and then rowing…after that there were pushups and tricep dips…followed by 4 different planks, crunches, and then stability ball wall squats.

Twice.

At the end of the second one I asked if I could crawl to the last station instead of walk.

When I finished…I asked her if I could do it again. šŸ™‚

And I went and bought the little circle torture device. I haven’t had enough pain yet!!

But MAN I’m sore today. And it’s awesome.

Yesterday I also did a 2 mile run with a lot of sprints…was kinda in a bad mood so I ran…hard….and got it out of my system.

I’m quite pleased.

I can’t wait to do cardio circuits again. That was awesome. I love the pain. šŸ™‚

And on a side note…I’m thinking about doing MCM next year. Pretty sure I found my motivation. šŸ˜‰
