So it seems a lot of you enjoy intervals more than the long runs. I believe I’m in the minority when saying I enjoy the extra mileage. And that possibly makes me a little messed up in the head.
This is me shrugging my shoulders and moving on…
I’ve been busy trying to add a bit of content to my humble little site. It’s finally *almost* done. So if you care to browse my racing past or what training plans I’ve used (because of general interest, to taunt me with my feeble attempts at becoming a better runner, or to just waste some time at work), you can now go to my “Racing Randomness” page. Weeeee!
I’ve also been busy with other things. Such as getting a haircut so I may look presentable at this conference and an upcoming wedding I’m in. The hair was getting a bit out of control and frizztastic. Shaggy Amy is not sassy Amy.Yes, I’m like a big frickin’ ball of sunshine today. That is until I leave my apartment and get smacked in the face with the insane heat and humidity. Then… not so much.
Recently, I’ve been trying hard to keep up the morning workouts on days when I don’t have to go into work until 9:00. I did it yesterday with The Shred again. I did it this morning with a little cross training session in my apartment’s workout room. I used the elliptical for 25, ran an 8:00 mile, and did some ab work. While I was there, two other girls came in and set up there laptop to The Shred. Is it sad I knew which circuit they were on without even having to see the laptop? And is it sad that I just now realized how goofy people look while doing The Shred? hmmm….
After a solid workout, I made sure the breakfast matched:Steel cut oats with kashi cereal and a little sunflower seed butter. Still trying to cut back on the ol’ nut butter. It’s working… some days (like today). Others- um… no. Also, there’s much more kashi in there that meets the eye. It’s on the underneath. Because I’m sneaky like that.
Part of the reason why I did my workout this morning was so that Mon and I could have a proper fun night out. It’s been a long week and we didn’t get to have one last week, so we decided to make a night of it. We’re going to see Dinner for Schmucks. Anyone else seen it? I’ve heard pretty good things so far. Which is good. After Date Night, I was a little disappointed in Steve Carell. And who doesn’t love Paul Rudd?
What’s the last movie you saw in the theater? I’ve been quite the little movie-goer these days, but there are still so many I want to see!
For all those coming in for HLS- I wish you safe travels!
Happy Thursday! Try not to melt. I’m sort of serious…
