My weekend with the family in the Twin Cities was nice. Playing some Guitar Hero, watching Sioux Hockey at Joe Sensors, a little relaxing, a lot of shopping, a lot of laughs, and some great food. I can't complain. I think I am still full from dinner at Buca's last night. I was even able to sneak in a run yesterday at my sis' gym with her and my mom. I had already done my long run of 2.5 miles on Thursday (according to the Jeff Galloway Plan Week 4), so my goal was to just do a couple miles and some lifting. My knees were a bit sore from wearing heels the previous two days, one of them spent walking through a mall for a few hours.
As for the week to come, I am thankful that it is only a 4 day week, with a jean's day to come on Friday. Wednesday and Thursday consist of the CPR/First Aid Training I mentioned in previous posts. That will make for long days, but if everything goes the way I want, I will be completing the majority, if not all, workouts in the AM. Well see how this weeks goes. If I am lucky, I will start a new "thing" and continue to do most of my workouts in the AM. Why not?
Okay. I postponed my workout today until this evening because I wanted to run 2 miles and then get into the pool when it opened for laps at 7:45. I ran, did a bit of lifting and then headed to the locker room to get ready for the pool. I noticed when I reached into my bag that not only did I not have my flip-flops, there was no suit to be seen.... and no skinny dipping is allowed.
I had no desire to go back to the treadmill as it was hard enough to find one available prior to my run. So I just left. It was okay though because I had to pick up some necessities at the grocery store for the week; you know, milk, yogurt, apples, bananas, oatmeal, grapes, etc. Did I mention I have moved over to the dark side? I am now eating oatmeal in the morning for breakfast... I used to gag at the thought of it, but have forced myself to get used to the consistency/texture. It's not too bad!
ORN: 2 miles
Have a great week, y'all!
