So now having been "blog spanked" by both of my friends I am attempting to redeam myself. Yesterday was my rest day in between strength training days. I wasn't too sore but just sore enough to feel what I had worked the previous day which I always enjoy. It's quiet the esteem boost to walk around thinking "Oh I feel that, sweet I really did work my inner thighs/back/abs/chest." Or maybe it's just me but I enjoy it!
I got a text message from Jocelyn last night announcing that she was running the next morning. At 5:55am I got out of bed and saw a text from Shannon saying "I ran this morning, did you?" Let's keep in mind that everything I do occurs 3 hours later than my fellow east coasters but I still feel like I'm slacking! Maybe I should be getting up at 3am to join them on thier 6am runs?
Or maybe not :-P
Anyways I made it to the gym and did 30 minutes of strength training. I did the same routine as Tuesday but with slightly shorter rest periods and incresed the number of reps by 2 on a couple of sets. I was definatly sweating and tired by the end of so I really enjoyed my shower. I know tomorrow and Saturday I'm really going to feel it in my chest from the push ups and roll-ins. You know the saying "Hurts so good?" Well it does!
My Mom told me about a race in Ukiah next weekend called the Harvest Run, it's a 3 mile race supporting the High School Cross Country team. I'll do that Saturday morning and see what my current 5k time is. Nothing else too exciting going on, after tomorrow I will only have 3 days left at my job then I get a week off before I move to Colorado!
Tomorrow I plan on running in the morning, hopefully about 3 miles, before I head to work. Then Saturday will be a longer run or bike ride in Ukiah. Oh man all of a sudden i'm really tired...boo to that!
