Day 4

There's not much to report today. After school, I went with a bunch of other sped teachers to grab a margarita and tacos. It was nice to be able to sit and chat and have some down time after school. But I knew that I still needed to get to the gym so I only had one and drank a big glass of water as well. I had a couple errands to run and I finally got to the gym shortly before 7ish. My goal was to get home in time to watch Grey's Anatomy after run and strength workout. Check.

Quick question.... which is better... the tiger tail or the marathon stick?

I know the weekend will be here and gone in the blink of an eye. With that thought, I have been soda-free for a week now! And no withdrawals. Well, their minimal. Since tomorrow is payday, a few of us are going to continue with our tradition of aps-and-taps-on-payday right after school. Thus, I am going to use my one optional rest day for the week, tomorrow. Saturday will consist of a good spin session and possibly more strength training. I am planning to meet some people at a sports bar to watch the Purdue/Ohio State game saturday night. On Sunday I will either run or swim. Oh, and I forgot to mention... I will probably be sneaking into work on saturday for a few hours. But just a few. No worries. I have to start graphing my progress charts and it should only take a short while.

Have a great weekend y'all! And good luck to those running Chicago this weekend!

You're off to a great start! Gosh I wish I could give up soda. Ok, I lied. I know I COULD... I wish I would.

Anyhoo, hope you have a great weekend :)

I like the flexibility of the stick, but the quality and low price of the Tiger Tail was my deciding factor. It seems to be doing just fine...

Hey the Twin Cities Marathon is this weekend too...know anyone doing it? That should be our goal...maybe a 5 year goal! Actually it would be a great goal for us to have when you move to the cities soon...Love ya!

Randy said...

Good start on your goals for the month......

I don't know anything about the Tiger tail thing. But I have a Stick and I really like it.

Danielle said...

I always have that goal too, get home in time for x show! :)

I haven't seen the Tiger Tail in use or anything, but for the price, I really like the stick. I'm pretty sure the one I have is the travel stick. It's handy, easy to pack, long enough that I can use it on my back as well as my legs, it's flexible enough to really get where I need it. The one I have ran in the $25-30 range. My boyfriend really pushes using the small playground balls to roll around on and massage on as well (his being a massage therapist I tend to trust his judgement on things like that) and foam rollers in a smaller degree if you're careful...but he has a stick as well.

Since I am always at a Marathon every weekend, I will tell you that most "everyone" uses "The Stick." Plus if you are at an expo they have some smaller one's , and are always happy and willing to give you free massages!

Yummmmmmmm margaritas and tacos.

Jess said...

Awesome job on Octapolluza...especially giving up the soda...that's got to be rough! Glad to hear no withdrawal though!

J~mom said...

I don't know the difference..good question. Let us know which one you get! :>)

I have the stick & it's awesome!!!

& you're a better person than I. I love the crisp, bubbly, cold, deliciouslness of Coca-Cola.

I am down to 4 oz a day; 5 days a week. If I got liek 5 days without, I seriously could drink a 2 liter on my own!! lol
