Fantastic Friday

     What an awesome day. I LOVE Fridays! I don't have class and since I don't work, I get to do whatever I want (I should be studying for finals... can we say procrastination???)

     The day started off with yummy eggs and veggies while we caught up on the latest episode of "The Real World." That show is soooo stupid that I have to watch it.

     Then it was time to hit the gym. Instead of being a lazy bum, I decided I would run to the gym. This idea spurred the idea of having the hubby take action photos. It didn't go well. I look like a crazy person when running. But here is the best take. We'll have to work on this.

    The 2.5 mile run was a good warm up for my weight workout, as well as a good way to loosen up some sore muscles. After completing my workout, the hubby wasn't quite ready to go. So crazy person that I am I jumped on the treadmill. It wasn't a long run yet it was fantastic.

    I alternated running at 5 mph for 1 min. then 8 mph for 30 sec. It was crazy to see that by the end 5mph felt sooo slow to me and 8mph felt good. It was a total confidence booster! To be honest when I set the treadmill to 8mph the first time I was a little uneasy. But hey, it was only for 30 sec. at a time. But it's good to know that my body is able to run that fast. I felt strong. Like really strong. Like wonder woman.

What makes you feel strong? A specific workout, a certain distance?

  1. Ha! You and I really are like two peas in a pod sometimes! My gym is only about 2.5 miles away as well, and occasionally I'll run there pre-workout. I totally *meant* to do that this morning! Whoops! :). I've tried 8.0 for 30 seconds at a time as well, and I felt like a total rockstar after.

    I know blogger was having issues before, but I did give you a big THANK YOU for the shout out before it went crazy and deleted posts. I hope you saw it! If not, THANK YOU!!!! :)
