Weekly Roundup

Yes, I'm well aware it's Tuesday. Only Tuesday. How is that possible ... Since it feels like Friday, we're having a weekly roundup now. OK? OK!

1. Ran with 10k group Saturday. Three miles on the mall. In what felt like 70F weather. You'll never guess ... but when you run with a group? You tend to go faster. Who knew?

2. Can a person die from overwork?

3. Ran Monday morning—outside—at 7 a.m. Three more miles!

4. Have taken extremely expensive custom-made inserts out of shoes. Am now using thicker socks to compensate. Fascinating, non?

5. This morning, 6:30 a.m. Am I still dreaming? Or am I in spin class, one of only two people to show? And the other person is a sweaty guy?!? And I'm sitting directly in front of Spin Instructor? Annnnnnnnnnd, I made him laugh today. I said, "Personal training!" I told him my heart rate: 32bpm (10 seconds). He almost ran for the defibrillator. Oh, that's not all. I also asked him if I could take a photo next week, for my "web site." He said: "You want to advertise for us?"
Me: Um, yeah, sure!
SI: Cool!

(This is so not him.)

6. If I run tomorrow morning, this will qualify as a "running streak."

7. It's supposed to snow tomorrow. Morning.

8. Treadmill!

9. Had cupcake at work tonight. It was sitting out on the counter. It was 7 p.m. I got to work at 7: 30 a.m.

10. But made up for it with extremely healthy dinner: corn/roasted red pepper soup, baked (alright! nuked!) sweet potato, and baked mahi mahi. I really love Trader Joe.

That's all I got people. It's been a long week, and it's only Tuesday!

Hot spin instructor

Good job on the running!

I still say you are brave for doing spinning, it looks soooo painful!

I've never run with a group, do you go faster in a GOOD way (like, you don't KNOW you're going faster) or in a BAD way (like, wow, I've gone a half mile and I'm totally sucking wind more than usual, what's up with that???????)?? COOL you guys ran at the mall.

Your meal sounds yummy, I have to get to Trader Joes, thanks for reminding me:-)

Gees, I am taking notes! Getting cute boys to let you take their picture without seeming like a stalker! Now that's skillz!

If your spin instructor even looks remotely like the hunk pictured, I'm coming to visit. Make me sweat!

Oh how I know that feeling! It's on Wednesday and I feel like I've worked 2 weeks instead of just 3 days.

Gotta love Trader Joe's

You only wish spinman looked like that. We shall see, I hope.

Chow sounded good but eating dessert before dinner is not good. Didn't your momma tell you these things?

You know cupcakes are just donuts incognito, don't you?

LBTEPA said...

sometimes it all about just hanging in there, isn't it?

Elizabeth said...

Damn it, did you have to mention that cupcake? I thought I was over this whole "craving sweets" business... apparently not!

Kudos on the running streak. You are a better woman than I. Running schmunning, that's become my new motto!

That's a great line, "Can I take your picture for my website?". I use it, too! Can't wait to see hunky spinning instructor--glad the picture today wasn't him. That guy looked kind of dorky.
