Wednesday Catch Up Post

Yesterday I woke with nasty sore throat. Just on the left side. Asside from that I didn't really feel crummy. However, as the day went on, I realized how tired I had felt for the past couple of days and went home to sleep. Plus, I was hot one minute and cold the next. I ended up sleeping 2 hours and skipping my run. Boo.

Today is the BF's birthday! Just want to give a quick shout out to him - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have a great day and can't wait to celebrate this weeekend with friends and the Brad Paisley Concert (w/Dairus Rucker and Justin Moore)! It will be a great time!

This morning I got up, felt a bit rested, and hit the gym for a run/Bodypump combo. It was just what I needed to jump start this hump day. I ran 2.55 miles with many intervals (at speeds some of you consider slow) and off to an hour of pumping iron. Actually, I was pretty excited because I upped some of my weights today (on squats, triceps, and biceps)! However, before doing that again, I am going to focus on going to class more regularly - ever 3-5 days instead of every 7 days. I topped my workout off with a nice protein smoothie for breakfast!

Tonight I look forward to curling up on the couch to watch the first game of the ALDS between my Twins and those Yankees. The Twins have to win this first one, for sure!

Tomorrow I was hoping to get to the pool or bike. I need to take a day or two off from running, as I am starting to feel it in my shins. Maybe this is a sign that I need new shoes. I haven't bought new shoes since May and even though I haven't put A LOT of running miles in them, I have worn them on the bike and at Bodypump class. Anyone looking to get rid of a SIZE 8 BROOKS TRANCE?? Sure would have been nice to win those in one of the giveaways out there, but oh well!

Happy Hump Day, y'all!

Hey! I've followed your blog for a long time and normally love it. I must admit though, it's "Go Yankees!" at my house! ;-)

Hope your shins heal quickly.

At the risk of being a really obnoxious New Yorker (since my beloved Metropolitans are playing golf), let's go home town Yankees!

Sorry.

ohhh i wanted to see Brad in concert, but opted for Rascal Flatts since we couldn't make them all.

yes rest now so those shins don't go crazy

Brad is super cute:)

What is the Fargo course like? I heard that it is fast and flat...but what about the views along the way? Are the crowds and fans super supportive? I would consider Fargo if it is a pretty course and there is lots of love from the peanut gallery:) Otherwise, you need to do TC with me! It was awesome!

Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Happy Birthday to the BF!

I just started getting serious about weights and you are my hero! I'm not sure I could run/throw around weights on the same day!
