1.Do you wear a hat?
Sometimes for vanity's sake I go without, unless I'm going for a run, or walking the dog. I will forever be a girl from Long Island, and can't bear to put something on my head that may squash the fullness, but when the cold really hits, I need to cover up. All I need are two hats to get me through my snowy days, Mike isn't a fan of this one, but I am.
Yup, once again here is a shot of me in my bathroom.
2. I registered for three races this week, the Tipperary Hill Shamrock Run, The Empire State Half in October, and The Boilermaker 15k in July, which I'll run for the sixth time. My wallet took a hit, but this is the time of year when races in Syracuse open, and close rather quickly, so I didn't want to miss out. I don't have a half marathon on my spring calendar yet. Now that my foot is finally feeling better, I am going to force myself to take care of myself.
Which means listening to my body.
3. I've gone down this road so many times. I just want to run Every Single Day, but I know I can't. I've run several times this week, up to five miles per run. I'm all gung ho and ready to go, but I forced myself to do yoga on Tuesday, and today I did a Jillian Michaels "Last Chance Workout." I didn't get the same feeling as a sweaty run would give, but my plank a day's are kicking my rear.
Stronger Body, Stronger Run, right?
4. Let's talk briefly about Lance.
I always believed in his ability, his drive, his love for his sport. Yes, it is disgraceful that he cheated and mislead all the people that he inspired, but.......
I hope they are still inspired.
I didn't watch the first half of the interview with Oprah, because I really didn't want to watch him throw his spin on his lies, but tonight I was folding laundry, and decided to look for something on TV to pass the time. I couldn't find it at first, Mike didn't think we had the OWN channel, but after a quick search, lo and behold I discovered we did.
Well, I watched and was disgusted, which wasn't a surprise. I must say though, that when he started talking about when his son asked him if the rumors were true, and he lied to his son, I was completely done.
I try to make my children happy, safe, and proud.
I would never lie to my children.
5. I decided what my goal will be when I drop these extra, extra pounds. I've wanted to try Cross Fit for a while now, and I decided that once I get to my goal weight, I'll go and do Foundations classes. I would love some feedback from anyone who has tackled this. I do feel somewhat intimidated, but I'm sure I'd be ready to kick it once I got into the groove.
